Cheddar Basil Whole Wheat Buns
I made these the other night for dinner. My daughter likes to have most of her bread made with whole wheat (healthier you know!) I didn't want to make the old usual plain ones so thought I'd add some cheddar and basil Great combination in all sorts of foods. These are light with a slight crust. They are worth the time to make. You and your family will love them. So please give them a try.
2 Pkgs rapid rise or instant yeast
1 3/4 cup warm water 115-125
2 TBL sugar
2 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups AP flour
2 1/2 cups whole what flour
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 TBL basil (fresh or dried) if fresh finely chopped
2 TBL vegetable oil
In the large bowl of mixer, place yeast, sugar, salt and two cups of flour. (I used 1 cup AP flour 1 cup bread flour) Mix to blend and add the 130 degree F water and oil. Mix on medium speed with regular beater for 3 minutes. Add cheese and basil, insert dough hook and beat for another 6:30 minutes, adding flour as needed to keep dough from being sticky.
Place dough on a floured board, cover with a cloth, and let rest for 10 minutes. Punch down dough and form into rolls. With a sharp serrated knife cut a slit on the top of each roll. Place rolls on a greased pan or parchment lined, cover and let rise in a warm place for 30-45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Before placing rolls in oven, brush tops with egg whites Place loaves in oven, with a spray mister mist oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy
