Quick Pan Rolls Review - cjs - 11-15-2014

We've got to get to warm weather so I can get outside or I'm going to weigh 400 lbs.!!!!!!!!!!!!! All this cooking is keeping the trailer nice and toasty, tho.

I'm still on my quest for 'my best' sandwich rolls that hold up to just about any filling and this one is certainly getting closer.

the recipe called for rapid rise yeast which I didn't have, so had to adapt a little. I've never done a rise like the one called for here, but it worked using regular yeast, too.

Quick Pan Rolls – 1/2 Recipe (16 rolls) a Chef’s Journey Revision

My oops in making this recipe consisted of using only a quarter of the yeast called for in making 1/2 the original recipe( which called for 2 T.) and I like the texture better for sandwich rolls. They will be sturdier, I think. I will make the recipe again using the called for amount of yeast and see how much, if at all, lighter they can be.

No need to shape individual rolls - simply cut dough in each pan into 16 rolls! Quick and easy.

2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
2 T. sugar
1/2 T. yeast (should have been 1 T.)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 T. butter cut into pieces
1/2 large egg
1/2 T. all-purpose flour, for dusting

1. Combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Heat milk, water, and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F); stir into flour mixture. Stir in egg and enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 20 minutes.

2. Roll to fit a greased 8 or 9-inch square pan. (I used an 8X12” 1/4-sheet pan) With sharp knife, cut dough into 16 rolls; cover. (I cut into 6 pieces for sandwich rolls) Place large shallow pan on counter; half fill with boiling water. Set wire rack over pan; place baking pan on rack. Let rise 20 minutes.

3. Dust tops with 1/2 tablespoon flour. Bake in preheated 400°F oven for 15 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; let cool on wire rack.
Yield: 16 rolls or 6 beautiful sandwich rolls

The flavor is great and is a very 'sturdy' dense bread.

Temps are supposed to rise tomorrow, I think, but then it's supposed to plunge again. Hopefully, you'll find warmer air when you get closer to the Gulf?

Great looking rolls, Jean. Even though bread is off the menu for Peter, I think I will try these for a rustic company do. Printed!!! Thanks Jean.

Re: Quick Pan Rolls Review - cjs - 11-16-2014

And, Roxanne, if you can eat 6 of them before Peter comes home, half recipe works great!!

O.K., report on these little goodies - made Patty Melts with them (I know s/b Rye -but needed to use these.

Super good and holds up to all the ingredients. darn, just remembered my new rosemary plant and I didn't even think to add some to the dough. Will do so next time.

Also, wanted to mention this fruit salad I made twice this week. Please excuse the picture, I just 'dumped' the dressing on and it was way too much, but oh so darn good! I grew up on fruit salad (bananas, apples, grapes - 99% of the time) with Mom's Mayo and Sugar Dressing - a recipe that is in Journey...Home book.

I had 2 pears this week and used them with the banana and couple good shakes of dried basil. Wow, such a nice upgrade and new flavor to the salad. We really enjoyed it.

Jean, I was conjuring up the scene in "Spanglish" where Adam Sandler comes home to his rental in Malibu and makes a sandwich for himself, plates it, and cuts it to show the running egg. Your picture of your sandwich reminded me of that scene. You should be a food prepper in movies.
