Sunday Breakfast Rolls

Sunday morning is a lazy time at our house. My teenage son is usually sleeping in, and it is the day of the week that my husband Nick makes these wonderful breakfast rolls.

The bread is so easy to make, and they are sublime when filled with my favourite breakfast ingredients - dry cured back bacon from our local butcher, fried fresh farm eggs, field mushrooms and tomatoes from my garden, slow roasted with olive oil in my Aga.


Makes 4 rolls

225g plain flour, plus a little extra for dusting

1 teaspoon salt

7g fast action dried yeast

150ml semi-skimmed milk, plus a little extra for brushing


1 Combine the flour, salt and yeast in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk. Mix everything together to form a soft dough. (Note: I do this whole step using my Kitchenaid mixer with dough hook attachment, on setting number #1 for 5 minutes).

2 Lightly knead the dough in the bowl, ( I do this in my mixer for 2 minutes on setting #2), cover with cling film and leave to rise in a warm, draught free place, for 1 hour.

3 Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and punch down. Divide in to 4 equal pieces, lightly knead each, and shape into  a ball. Flatten out each to about 10cm in diameter with a rolling a pin. Be careful not to roll too thin.

4 Put the rolls, spaced well apart, onto a baking tray covered with a piece of baking parchment (if you haven't got baking parchment then lightly oil the tray). Cover with oiled cling film and leave to rise in a warm draught free place for 30 minutes.

5 Preheat the oven to 200 degree C/gas mark 6.

6 Glaze the tops of the rolls with milk and dust with flour.

7 Place in the middle of the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

8 Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.

9 Serve warm filled with your favourite breakfast ingredients and enjoy!
