My Italian neighbor has passed along many mouthwatering recipes, including this one. The soft, tender buns are easy to pull apart. —Carolina Hofeldt, Lloyd, Montana

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat the milk, water and shortening to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until moistened. Add egg; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Good and easy to make!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2012

I will try this recipe. Looks awesome. But the temperature of the milk, water and shortening seems way too high. I would heat until 110 degrees, and the "pinky test" as sherry_vinigrette suggested (my Mom taught me to do that, and it works!). No wonder Shirleyartist said it was hot on her hands! That's hotter than a jacuzzi! Just wanted to submit my comments. This recipe looks awesome. And the "pre-sliced" version sounds perfectamundo!

excellent, easy, quick, nice texture and taste. the only thing i did not care for was the paprika coating. i think i will omit or substitute something else next time

This worked nicely, will use more garlic next time; 3/4 teaspoon. About temperature of liquid that will "feed" the dry yeast - Julia Child describes that the liquid should feel "pinky" finger warm, when you dip your little finger into it; sort of how you would serve a baby bottle, just warm. I also added 1/2 teaspoon sugar to the liquid, helps the yeast develop and foam up the way it's supposed to.

MY REVIEW

I tried this recipe last night, and it was the easiest bread recipe. Had a very nice textured dough to work with. I tried the "pre-sliced" version that keverwann does, and will do it that way again! I doubled the garlic the recipe called for, and it was still quite mild. Also, the next time I think I'll try mixing the spices in with the melted butter so it covers the bread sections more evenly.
