Looking for a delicious breakfast? A side dish for dinner? We suggest this Poppy Seed Roll Recipe.
Living in New Jersey, hard rolls hold a special place in my heart.
If you ask anyone from New Jersey about hard rolls, he or she will tell you that only here will you find that a buttered roll is an acceptable breakfast.
As a breakfast staple, you'll find them in convenience stores, gas stations and diners alike. Growing up in North Carolina, when I moved to New Jersey I ate my weight in this newfound breakfast phenomenon.
When I talk about hard rolls, I'm not talking about rolls with a thick crust that you really sink your teeth into and then rip away a huge crusty chunk. Don't get me wrong, those sound fantastic to me, but what I'm talking about are rolls with a thin, crispy crust and a soft, airy interior. That's exactly what you'll get when you bake these rolls.
If you've never tried this special kind of roll, you're in for a treat. In fact, I suspect they will become your newfound favorite just like they are mine!
Similar to sourdough bread, they're perfect as a large sandwich roll and the ideal carrying device for another Jersey favorite, the Taylor ham, egg and cheese (salt, pepper, ketchup please!). Or feel free to make them smaller and serve them alongside dinner.
These rolls freeze beautifully too, so make a big batch. When you're ready, defrost a few and simply pop them into the oven for a few minutes.
I like to make these in large batches so I always have them on hand. I never have to worry about what we're going to have for breakfast if I know that there are rolls at the ready in the freezer!
Voila! Homemade rolls anytime your heart desires. Who can resist a warm roll right from the oven?
Are you tired of the dinner routine?
