Three Grain Pan Rolls Recipe

"The first time I made these rolls, I was a little worried that my husband wouldn't like them," writes Montserrat Wadsworth of Winnemucca, Nevada. "But he loved them! The seeds on top add flavor and fun crunch."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:22 servings


  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup bulgur
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons each celery seed, fennel seed and sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds


  • 1. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in bulgur. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  • 2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the oats, honey, eggs, salt, pepper, cooked bulgur and whole wheat flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • 3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until elastic, about 6-8 minutes (mixture will be lumpy). Place in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/4 hours.
  • 4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 22 pieces. Roll each into a ball. Brush two 9-in. round baking pans with some of the oil.
  • 5. Arrange 11 balls in each pan; brush tops with remaining oil. Combine the celery seed, fennel seed, sesame seeds and poppy seeds; sprinkle over rolls. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 40 minutes.
  • 6. Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 22 rolls.

"Great flavor, hearty rolls. We didn't have celery seed, but did the rest as written (except skim milk instead of 2%)."
