Leftover turkey, ham or freshly grilled hamburgers always have a delicious place to land when you put your bread machine to work with this wonderful semolina roll recipe.

1-1/2 cups water, lukewarm
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 cups bread flour
1-1/2 cups semolina flour
1-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

1 egg
2 – 3 tablespoons cornmeal

Before beginning, check the date on your yeast. Yeast that is out-of-date will fail every time.

Lukewarm water should feel a little warm to the touch but not hot. Yeast blooms best at temperatures between 105° and 115°. Water that is too cool will not bring the yeast to life. Water that is too hot will kill the yeast.

Warm the bucket of your bread machine by filling with 6 – 8 inches of hot water and allowing to stand for a couple of minutes. This step helps maintain the warmth of the water for your recipe.

Pour the standing water out of the bread bucket and seat the bucket in the machine. Add the lukewarm water followed in order by the olive oil, sugar, salt, bread flour, semolina flour and yeast.

Set your bread machine for a dough cycle. When the machine has finished, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board. Lightly and quickly roll the dough into a fat log and cut the log into 6 or 8 pieces. Avoid working the dough too much. Overworking the dough knocks the air out and creates tough, dense bread.

With lightly floured hands, quickly shape the dough into balls and push to flatten a bit into a disk about 3/4 to 1-inch thick. When all of the disks are on the baking sheet, beat the egg and 1 tablespoon of water together. Brush the tops and sides of rolls with the egg wash. If you’d like to add sesame seeds, dried onions, poppy seeds, etc., sprinkle on top of the egg wash and blow the excess off of the baking sheet.

Place the baking sheet in a warm, draft-free place; in the oven with the light on works. Allow the dough to rise for 25 – 35 minutes, until the rolls have doubled in bulk.

If you let the rolls rise in the oven, remove them now and preheat the oven to 375°. Bake the rolls for 15 – 20 minutes. Allow the rolls to cool for 30 minutes before cutting.

Yield: 6 – 8 rolls
