Directions

1
Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. In mixing bowl combine yeast, 1 cup water, salt and shortening. Fold in stiffly beaten egg white. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Let dough rise twice until doubled, punch down and let rise again. Punch down and divide in 10-12 pieces. Form into slightly flattened balls and place on greased baking sheet.
2
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and bake 20 minutes. To ensure a hard crust, place pan with boiling water in bottom of oven during baking. Serve warm with jam, or cold.

I like to spray the rolls after a few minutes with water. For a hard crust. We haven't spent a nichel on bread and rolls in 10 years.
And it's so easy to make. I built a proofer in my kitchen.

Thank you for posting this. I will be trying them soon! I love a good hard roll.
I think this is similar to my french bread recipe. It also has an egg white in it.
