DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt.
  • Heat water, milk, sour cream, and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F).
  • Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  • Add 1 egg and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  • Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • Knead on lightly greased surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; flatten to 3-inch rounds.
  • Place one rounded tablespoon Bacon Filling on center of each.
  • Bring edges of dough up to enclose filling; pinch to seal.
  • I like to dampen edges with lightly beaten egg white and seal with well floured fingers for a good seal.
  • Place, pinched sides down, on greased baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  • Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
  • Brush surface of each roll with egg mixture.
  • Bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove from sheet; serve warm.
  • BACON FILLING: In large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Drain on paper towels; discard drippings from skillet.
  • In same skillet, cook onion, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat; stir in bacon.
