30 rolls




  • In a large bowl, combine 3 1/2 cups flour, yeast, salt and sugar.
  • In a small saucepan, combine milk and butter, and place over low heat until milk is lukewarm.
  • Pour into bowl of dry ingredients, and mix with a fork to make a rough dough, adding more flour if necessary.
  • Using a mixer with dough hook, or by hand, knead dough until smooth and silky.
  • Place in an oiled bowl, and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.
  • Punch air out of dough.
  • Oil a baking sheet, and set aside.
  • Pull off pieces of dough the size of walnuts, and form into round balls.
  • Place on baking sheet almost touching, about 1/4 inch apart, in 6 rows of 5 each.
  • Cover with a kitchen towel, and let rise in a warm place 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat oven to 425 degrees.
  • When rolls have risen, make a glaze by beating together the egg, milk and salt.
  • Paint rolls with glaze.
  • Sprinkle one row with sesame seeds and the next with poppy seeds; leave the third row plain, and then repeat pattern.
  • (A teaspoon of seeds should decorate 2 rows.) Bake rolls until risen and golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack or serve immediately.
  • To serve, place on a plate so rolls can be torn off to be eaten.

    I did 1/2 the recipe . I made the dough in my bread machine, which has a special cycle for quick rising yeast doughs-- ( quick dough cycle) --then I made 8 rolls and put them on a pie plate to rise. Before putting them in the oven, I painted them with the egg glaze. Then I baked them at 400 for about 15 minutes. The rolls came out wonderful!!! Everyone had two . Thanks for this great recipe-- I will definately make again.

    This is a terrific recipe. I have made these 3 times during the holidays and our family and guests loved them. Thanks looneytunesfan Trudy

    I decided to make rolls on the spur of the moment and liked that these didn't use much butter and made a smaller yield. I made the dough in the food processor. These are very attractive rolls, with the egg/milk wash. They were wonderful and the whole family enjoyed (especially my daughter who is particular about her rolls). Thanks Mean Chef. Roxygirl
