Sweet Onion Bacon Rolls March 18, 2014 10:49

Welcome to the foodie blog ramblings of Shar's Kitchen.   Every week we'll  be sharing new recipe ideas from our  Bosch kitchen.  This week in our Breadbasket Newsletter we shared this  recipe for Sweet-onion Bacon Marmalade  that is slathered into the middle of these whole-grain jelly-roll style rolls.  It  is the perfect salty-sweet savory  combination. When coupled with a thick stew or hearty chili your family  will be begging for more of these rolls!

In a Bosch Universal Plus Mixer  with a dough hook combine:

  • 3 cups fresh whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk powder or powdered milk
  • 1/2 cup potato flour
  • 2 cups high gluten flour or 1/3 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 3 Tbsp yeast
  • 3 Tbsp  dough enhancer (optional)

Mix thoroughly so the buttermilk will not form lumps.

Add: 

  • 4 cups warm water (approx. 115 degrees)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
Mix 2-3 minutes and sponge until the dough doubles in size.
Add: 
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt
Continue to add fresh ground wheat flour until the dough starts to pull away from the  sides of the bowl but never  picks up the bottom.   This dough will be sticky. Knead on speed 2 6-7 minutes, or until the gluten develops.
Roll out the dough into a 12 inch by 18 inch rectangle and spread onion bacon marmalade   (recipe below) to the edges.
Roll-up jelly-roll style, starting from the long side and cut 1 1/2 to 2 inch rolls with  dental floss.
Place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
Let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
