"Sandwiches are beautiful, Sandwiches are fine".....Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

"Sandwiches are beautiful, sandwiches are fine....I like sandwiches, I eat them all the time....." This is the first line to a silly little song on one of the childrens' tapes (yes, that dates me.....and my kids- lol!!)  we used to listen to when my kids were small. It's funny how those things stick with you! I can still hardly speak the word "sandwich" without breaking into song!

Well, this roll recipe may make you break into song! This makes such a nice, soft roll, especially considering that it contains whole wheat flour. I made these for a girlfriend's dinner party the other night, which my daughter attended (I just made the rolls- I wasn't at the dinner). My daughter texted me, raving about the rolls, thinking they were her favorite oatmeal roll recipe. I was pleased that they were that good! Obviously, they don't just make great sandwich rolls.....this makes a tasty dinner roll as well.

Don't hurry these rolls on their second rise.......If you let them really fill up the pan before you bake them, you'll be rewarded with huge, fluffy rolls!

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

1 1/4 Cup warm milk
1 Tbsp/packet Red Star Platinum yeast 
1 beaten egg
2 Tbsp. softened butter
1/4 cup honey
2 3/4 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
1 Cup whole wheat flour

In the EZ DOH bucket, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Let sit for 1-2 minutes. Add one cup of flour, then additional ingredients (You may want to add the last 3/4 Cup of unbleached flour slowly to be sure you don't end up with a dry, shaggy dough). EZ-DOH until  dough is smooth, 2-3 minutes. Remove dough from bucket, spray bucket with cooking spray and replace dough in bucket. Let rise until doubled. Remove from bucket and shape into 12 evenly-shaped balls. Place in a greased 7x10" pan. Cover and let rise until doubled (or pan looks "full") . Bake at 375 for approximately 20 minutes, or until rolls are nicely browned. Remove from pan, brush with additional butter. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!!
