I love to bake bread, but it seems like I have bad luck with it looking/tasting presentable. These look respectable and have just the slightest hint of sweetness. Found this recipe in "Prize Winning Recipes". Since I'm cooking only for myself, I make a batch and stick them in the freezer, thaw one every time I eat a bowl of soup. Wonderful!

I'm afraid I found these rolls a little bland, perhaps the addition of some seeds next time will liven them up a bit. I also didn't have great success with reproving the dough from frozen. They are, however, light and fluffy for wholewheat rolls, so worth a tweak or two. Thank you.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 ounce yeast (two packages)
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda

- 1 1⁄2 cups cottage cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 eggs
Directions See How It's Made
- In large bowl, combine 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour, yeast, brown sugar, salt, and baking soda. Mix well.
- In saucepan, heat water, cottage cheese, and butter until warm (butter does not need to melt).
- Remove from heat and add eggs to the liquid mixture.
- Combine dry and wet ingredients, blend at low speed until moistened, beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
- By hand, gradually add all of the whole-wheat flour and enough of the all purpose to make a firm, non-sticky dough.
- Knead until smooth and elastic - 5 minutes or so.
- Place in greased bowl, flipping to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled. This takes roughly an hour.
- Punch down dough and divide into 24 pieces. Form these into balls and place in greased muffin cups.
- Cover and let rise until doubled, another 45 minutes.
- Bake in an oven preheated to 375 for 12-15 minutes.
