My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Fabulous Food Friday #70


Fabulous Food Friday #70

These are my new go to rolls. I have been making them for buns for various recipes (like below) and love how fast and easy they are to make. Don't get me wrong, I still love my roll recipe, but different rolls for different functions, right? These are rolls seen in this recipe picture. I found the recipe here.

French Bread Rolls
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 TBSP active dry yeast
2 TBSP white sugar
2 TBSP vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
4 cups all-purpose flour

In a large bowl, stir together warm water, yeast, and sugar. Cover with a towel and let stand until bubbly, about 10 minutes.
To the yeast mixture, add oil, salt, and 2 cups flour. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Deflate the dough, and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces, and form into round balls. Place on lightly greased baking sheets at least 2 inches apart. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth (or greased saran wrap), and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400º. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until golden brown.

For some reason I thought these sandwiches were way out of my comfort zone, but I sucked it up and decided to try them anyways. Good thing I did because they were scrumptious! Once I found the recipe, I saw it everywhere so I hope it's new to you.

Cheesy Ham Sammies
12 freshly baked rolls or store bought soft dinner rolls
12 slices fresh swiss cheese
1 lb thin sliced deli ham, smoked or honey baked
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 TBSP onion flakes
1 tsp poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp ground mustard

Slice rolls in half. Spread a little mayo on one side of the bun. Place a few slices of ham and top with cheese on the bottom of the bun. Cover with the top half of the bun. Place tightly into a 9x13 baking dish. In a small bowl, combine butter, onion flakes, poppy seeds, Worcestershire sauce and ground mustard. Pour over sandwiches. Cover with plastic wrap and marinade in the fridge for 4-8 hours. Preheat oven to 350º and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve hot.

  1. So I have seen this sandwich recipe everywhere and have wanted to try it, but I have never seen it with instructions to let it marinate??? Interesting, the bread doesn't get soggy?

  2. I thought the same thing, but did it anyways. It's not as much liquid as you think and make them crispy, not soggy.

  3. Have made these several times and they are heavenly! Thank you so much. This has become a go to recipe, easy to double or triple and perfect for feeding a crowd!

  4. Whoa, does this sandwich look delicious, my mouth is watering! I think I just discovered what I am eating for lunch! :-) Saying hello from mandy's recipe box!
