Heat the water and milk with the butter until it reaches 110*.
Put all ingredients (except seeds and egg wash) into your bread machine pan according to the manufacturers directions and set cycle to dough.
Butter a 9x13" pan. Remove dough from pan and place in a buttered bowl and punch down, turning the dough over, and cover with a wet tea towel. Let rest 10 minutes.
Shape dough into 12 even pieces and roll into balls. Place them three across and four down in your pan. Brush with melted butter (or beaten egg and topped with seeds) and let rise for 30 minutes (or until almost double) while you preheat your oven to 375*.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, covering with foil after 15 minutes if the tops brown too much.
