I love trying new recipes, especially bread recipes. Back in December, I decided that I was paying too much for bread and decided to completely stop buying bread. It's been a journey, and I'm still not completely making my own, but I do only end up buying about 2 loaves a month which is a lot less than in 2009 when I first became interested in pursuing this. I first began with several recipes using my bread machines (I have two - both of which were given to me). I just wasn't satisfied with the results because the bread just didn't rise enough. So, then I began using the bread machines to make the dough and cooking it in the oven. That has worked out great. My sister recently gave me a wonderful recipe for Batter Brown Bread from the Bread Book and so far, I like it the best for sandwiches. But I still needed a recipe that would work for hamburger buns. Again, I found it on the same website as the recipe from my last post. It's called 40 Minute Whole Wheat Rolls . I've used it several times already and these rolls are so yummy. I did change it up by only making eight instead of 12 due to the size. Tonight, the kids wanted pizza. I did not have time today to make pizza dough. So, I got this recipe out and decided to make a pizza roll with it. Instead of dividing the bread I spread it out into a rectangle shape, added pizza sauce, cooked sausage, and mozzarella. Then, I rolled it up and placed it on a cookie sheet. The nice thing about this bread is that it only has to bake for 8-10 minutes.
