Publisher Photo
I found a magazine recipe for whole wheat rolls and changed it to fit my family's tastes. With a yield of 3 dozen, I have plenty to take to potlucks and other get-togethers.—Debra Troester, Hampton, Nebraska

Nutritional Facts

1 roll equals 151 calories, 5 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 22 mg cholesterol, 166 mg sodium, 24 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 1-1/2 starch, 1 fat.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 2 tablespoons sugar in warm water. In a large bowl, combine milk, 1/2 cup melted butter, eggs, salt, remaining sugar, yeast mixture and 4 cups all-purpose flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in whole wheat flour and enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide and shape into 36 balls. Roll each into a 10-in. rope; tie into a loose knot. Tuck ends under. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  4. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush warm rolls with remaining melted butter. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 3 dozen.
