This afternoon I whipped up a batch of rolls to go with spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight.



Instead of using all regular all purpose flour I used half white and half stone ground whole wheat. I used half of the dough to make rolls and half to make a loaf of bread for slicing.



The bottoms of the rolls came out perfect!



The crumb was tender and delicious!



The loaf of bread which will be sliced tomorrow.



The red gravy has loose Italian sausage, cut links of Italian sausage and the meatballs which were so tender some fell apart.

Caj,

I have tried making bread like 10 times.  Not sure if it's the recipe or if there is a secret i am missing.  Can you share this recipe and any tips you might have.  I'd love to make some homemade bread over the winter but i failed so many times i gave up.

What you make looks great!  It's what i would be picking out at the store!

Here's the recipe I used yesterday and for two loaves I made in this link...  http://forum.bigsteelkeg.com/index.php?topic=18500.0
The only thing I did different yesterday was I used 3 cups of all purpose and 3 cups of stone ground whole wheat(Bob's Red Mill brand for both flours). One thing I think is very important is to have a good fresh yeast. If it's expired toss it and get new. Not that I believe in all expiration dates. When mixing the yeast with warm water let it become active and foam up.
Other than that just follow the directions closely and you should have success. Oh, also with the cooler weather of now it may take longer to rise. Give it more time if needed and it should rise. I find that when cooking if I place the bowl with the covered(preferrably w/ plastic wrap. It keeps it from drying and helps it to rise)dough near the stove.


Below is the recipe ....... Give it a try and let me know how you like it.

Amish White Bread

⅔ Cups white sugar

Sprinkle with yeast and let dissolve 5-15 minutes
Add salt, oil and half the flour mix together.
Add remaining flour. Change to dough hook and mix till its pulling away from the sides.
Pull out onto lightly floured surface and knead shortly
Place in greased bowl flipping to cover both sides.

Set aside in draft free area and let rise till doubles in size. About 1 hour
Remove cover and punch down.
Lay out on lightly floured surface and cut in half.
Flaten out into rectangle and "jelly" roll into a loaf.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Once double in size bake for 25-30 minutes.

Pull out and brush top with butter.
Let rest 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
*Bakers notes: I've decreased the sugar down to ¼ cup or ⅓ cup instead of using full amount.
I've also cut the oil down to 2 Tablespoons and substituted the oil for butter.
