    egg, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp

  • 2 Tbsp

How to Make Easy (bread machine!) Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls


  1. Place warm milk, beaten egg, softened butter, honey, and salt in bread pan.
  2. Add bread machine flour and whole wheat flour to bread pan.
  3. Top flours w/ bread machine yeast. Place pan in bread machine, select dough cycle and start.
  4. When dough cycle is complete, turn dough ball out onto lightly floured surface. Roll out dough to 3/4 inch thickness.
  5. Cut out rolls w/ 4 inch diameter biscuit cutter. (I like bigger rolls so I use top of tumbler 5-6 inches diameter). This will, of course, produce fewer sandwich buns.
  6. Place cut out dough rounds on lightly greased cookie sheets; cover and let rise until doubled in size (about 1 hour). Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Bake in preheated oven 10-15 minutes (time will be determined by bun size). When rolls are baked, brush tops w/ melted butter if desired. Allow to cool thoroughly before slicing horizontally w/ bread knife. HAVE A HAPPY SANDWICH!
