Sausage Bread Rolls

The first time I came across sausage Bread rolls was at the Aiport on my last trip outside the United States, and I was wowed. When I returned, I did not hesitate to recreate it. It is such an easy recipe and the result was outstanding.

The texture and flavor of this bread were absolutely delicious. It turned out exactly as I had hoped. Not only do they taste good, but they also look beautiful. I have made this countless times now because my family is hooked!

These bread rolls are an excellent addition to the family menu especially if you like the art of bread making – as I do.

Can I freeze these Rolls?

This sausage bread can be made in bulk because it freezes so well. If you choose to freeze them, be sure to let the rolls to come to room temperature. Put them in a Ziploc or tightly sealed plastic bag and store them in the freezer. You need to let them thaw before warming them.

You can place them in the oven to warm up or microwave for a minute or two.

Notes:

  1. Try to leave some spaces at both ends of the sausage while wrapping it because the dough will still rise up and cover the left out space a little bit
  2. I like to steam or grill the sausage links before I wrap them around the dough because I want it to be thoroughly cooked.
  3. Mixers can also be used for mixing the dough, this saves time and energy
  4. Be sure to measure accurately. You can see both the standard and the metric measurements below
  5. Bring all your ingredients to room temperature bere combining them. Except for the milk – that needs to be warm.
  6. When making bread, always use bowls that are large enough to accommodate the size of the dough when it doubled or tripled in size.
  7. These bread rolls are perfect for breakfast, dinner, or even snack time and it will definitely create a memorable taste for you and your family.

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and sugar, make a well at the center and add the yeast and the Egg and Butter mixture and mix together until a soft dough is formed.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until it’s smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes by hand and about 7 minutes if using a mixer.
  • Place the Dough inside a very large oiled bowl (making sure you smear some oil on the surface of the Dough) and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour or till doubled in size.
  • Steam the sausage in boiling water for about 7 minutes. Remove from water and set aside.
