Flatbread Sandwich Rolls

It sure has been busy around the Homestead this gardening season!  Every day is spent in the kitchen with fruits, veggies, stainless steel pots, knives, canning pots, lids and rings, and of course lots of canning jars (yes, I’m addicted! You can read all about that here!).  
How does anyone manage to fit in cooking meals with all of this canning going on?   

One of the quickest meals around is a sandwich, and these Sandwich Rolls can be ready is just about 35 minutes!  Split in 1/2, these are similar to a flat bread, but more tender. Not only are they delicious, you won’t feel like you totally ignored the family meal!  Great with a homemade Chicken Salad, a big slice of Tomato, or even PB&J, 
these rolls are quick and easy to make.

Flatbread Sandwich Rolls from One Ash Farm Recipes

1 1/4 TBS. warm water
1/3 cup oil
2 TBS. dry active yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 eggs
3 1/2 cups flour 

Heat your oven to 400 degrees.

In your bowl combine the water, oil, yeast and sugar.  Stir thoroughly and allow it to rest for 10 minutes, or until bubbly.

Mix in the salt, egg and flour using a whisk.  Mix until the dough is soft and smooth.

The batter should be thick enough to pick up and roll into a tube (remember rolling clay into “worms” when you were growing up?) about 12″ long.  Make sure your tube is the same thickness all the way to the ends, and the ends are flat.

Lay the tube on a cutting board and with a sharp, large knife, cut it into 12, 1″ rounds.  (I like to do it this way-  cut it in 1/2,  cut each piece in 1/2 again, then cut each remaining piece into 1/3’s).

Place each round on a greased cookie sheet, reshaping them as necessary.  They don’t have to be perfect- they are homemade, not machine made!

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.  When cooled, slice in 1/2 and enjoy!

This recipe can be easily doubled, and the baked rolls can be frozen for an even quicker meal next time!
