Makes a dozen rolls
butter or margarine
1In a small saucepan combine milk, sugar, salt, and 1 tablespoon of the butter. Heat to lukewarm (the butter does not have to be completely melted)
2Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl. Add warm milk mixture.
3Stir in sage, wheat germ, and 2 cups of the flour. Add remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead lightly on lightly floured board until smooth.
4Cover and let rise in a warm spot until doubled.
5Melt the remaining butter and pour half of it into a 9-inch round cake pan or glass dish.
6Divide dough into 12 equal pieces, shape into balls, and place in pan. Drizzle with remaining melted butter.
7Cover and let rise again for about 30 minutes; should be at least almost doubled again.
8Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot or reheat before serving
