We survived our first Thanksgiving! Well, actually, this is our third Thanksgiving together, but the first time we've celebrated in our own place, making our own turkey (more about that later) and enjoying sharing our thanks just the two of us. It was a special day.
Now, we're looking at the leftovers of a 14.66 pound bird... yum. We're going to be eating turkey for months.
One delicious way we love to eat turkey is in a hot turkey/gravy sandwich. Lucy's dinner rolls were made for just that purpose. They came out of the oven yesterday about an hour before the turkey did, so we could have a nourishing snack before the meal, and have leftovers for sandwiches.
If you're looking for a delicious dinner roll, these fit the bill. Thanks, Lucy, for another fabulous recipe.
Lucy's Dinner Rolls - Adapted from Lucy
Makes 12-14 rolls
1/2 + 1/6 C milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T sugar
1 T butter
1 C whole wheat flour
3/4 C all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp. yeast
Place ingredients in your bread machine pan, as directed by the manufacturer.
Set the bread machine to the dough cycle, and allow your dough to knead. Mine takes about 90 minutes.
When the bread machine finishes its cycle, remove the dough to a lightly floured surface -- knead just a few times into a ball.
Allow the dough to rest, covered for 10-15 minutes.
Then, shape the dough into 12-14 round balls. Lucy has some fun directions about making cloverleaf rolls, if you're interested. I found it easier to cut the dough into pieces rather than rip it ;-)
Place the rolls into a greased pan -- I used a round 9-inch pan, Lucy recommends an 8x8 dish.
Cover, and allow rolls to rise for about 30 minutes to an hour until they are double in size. Mine rose rather quickly in my warm kitchen.
Bake at 375 for 12-18 minutes, until rolls are lightly browned and sound hallow when lightly tapped.
Cool for about 2 minutes in the pan, and then flip the rolls out -- this will help them to maintain their crunchiness.
Let sit for a few minutes before gobbling them up :)
Enjoy them in hot turkey sandwiches -- yum. Thanks, Lucy! Your rolls are delicious.
