I grew up on these. Now I make them for my kids. The time it takes to make these are worth it. The recipe can easily be halved for 12 rolls. You would still use 1 egg though.

What an absolutely fabulous tasting roll. This recipe will definitely be replacing the one I used to make. I halved it as suggested and they still turned out perfectly. Thanks!

YUMMY! I love bread and it loves me! note to self chec the hips! DS is a very picky bread person and he liked these quite a bit. So in my bread recipes cookbook for future use. I did cut the recipe in half as I just made sage rolls a few days before. We ate these with a rib dinner and they sopped up the BBQ juices quite well. I used my bread machine to nmix the dough. I added in 2 tsp vital wheat gluten to the recipe. After dough cycle 1hr 50 min. I remeoved and layed out on stone, making 8 large rolls. Baked at 400 degress after rise for 12 min. Once done I brushdd with melted butter and dusted sesame seeds over top. Wonderful!!! Made for Aus/NZ Swap 38
