Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

I get tired of spending a couple of dollars on a package of hamburger or sandwich rolls. Really tired. And don’t even get me started on sandwich bread for lunches. With 8 people in the family we frequently (usually) go through a minimum of a loaf of bread a day. Sigh. So my bread costs are not cheap. Who wants to spend $30+ a month on bread, for goodness sakes.

So a couple of months ago I went hunting for a good sandwich roll recipe, and found a winner at http://www.allrecipes.com. So sweet and soft and luscious right out of the oven. Throw them in a bag in the freezer or whatever and they come out great. I’ve made them with my mixer or my bread machine, and I always love them. Just don’t roll them too thin or they get crumbly.
Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls Recipe


  • 1 1/4 cups warm milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened (I usually use oil)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 3/4 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press start.
  2. When dough cycle has finished, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out 3/4 inch thick. Cut out rolls with a 3 to 4 inch diameter biscuit cutter. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets; cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. When rolls are finished baking, brush with melted butter.

Note: I usually substitute oil for butter, and when I make it with my stand mixer I knead it for 5+ minutes, then let it raise for abt an hour, then go to step 2.
