Sunflower Seed Rolls

Here is my latest roll recipe I made over Christmas. One of my favorite things about any holiday is that I’ll be making homemade rolls. There’s something so comforting about the smell of fresh yeast breads in the home.

1 cup milk
3 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted
5 teaspoons yeast, or 2 packets
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
4 1/2 – 5 cups flour
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, shelled and unsalted


1. In stand mixer combine melted butter and milk. Mix until the temperature of the milk and butter are lukewarm. Add eggs, yeast, salt and sugar. Mix well. Add flour, a little at a time, until dough cleans the side of the bowl. Knead with dough hook for about 10 minutes. Add sunflower seeds and let dough knead until seeds are combined.

2. Spray a large bowl with non-stick spray and turn dough into the bowl. Cover and let rise, about 2 – 3 hours, or until it doubles in size. Make sure the dough is in a warm place, about 78 – 80 degrees.

3. After dough has doubled in size, turn onto a surface sprayed with non-stick spray. Roll out and cut into squares. Place on baking sheet and cover again, about 30 minutes, or until doubled in size again.

4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Baked for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

    I adore sunflower seeds in rolls. They make each bite of bread even tastier! And I also love how fresh bread smells. I hope you are having a relaxing week. Here’s to a new year full of much joy and many blessings! Take care, sweet friend.
