Company Dinner Rolls

Add these "healthy" Company Dinner Rolls to a delicious dinner of homemade soup...yum!


2 1/2c. Warmed Water (115 degrees F.)
1c. Cracked Seven Grain
1 1/2 T. SAF Instant Yeast
1/4c. Butter, softened
4T. Vital Gluten (optional)
4T. Dry Milk Powder
1/4c. Honey
1 Egg
2t. Salt
5-6c. {Freshly ground} Whole Wheat Flour

Combine warmed water, cracked seven grain and yeast. Sponge (let sit) for 15-30 minutes.

Add egg, butter, honey, dry milk powder, salt and vital gluten to the mixture on low speed.

Gradually add enough additional whole wheat flour until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Avoid adding too much flour, as that will make the roll too tough.

Knead the dough until the gluten is fully developed (5-8 minutes).

Raise dough for 30 minutes. Punch down dough and shape into rolls, by oiling your hands and shaping 1/4 cup-fulls of dough into balls. Place closely together but not touching onto greased baking sheets.

Allow the rolls to raise until doubled in size, at least one hour.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Yields 30-36 rolls.
