FREEZER ROLLS WITH BULGUR WHEAT GRAIN
1â�„2 cup bulgur
1 cup warm water
6 or 7 cups flour
1â�„4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1â�„3 cup instant dry milk solids
2 packages active dry yeast
2 TBS soft butter
2 cups very warm water
Soak bulgur in the cup of warm water for 30 minutes.
Combine five cups of the flour with sugar, salt, dry milk, yeast and butter in a mixing bowl.
Drain the bulgur and add to the flour mixture.
Using a dough hook, begin a very slow mix; gradually add the water and mix for about 2 minutes.
Continue mixing and begin adding the remaining flour 1â�„2 cup at a time as needed. Mix until the dough clings to the hook and cleans the side of the bowl. Beat for about five more minutes until dough is smooth.
Put dough on dough board and let it rest for 15 minutes; knead dough and form it into rolls.
Place rolls in freezer or bake.
To bake, let rolls rise until double in size, then bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
If frozen, set rolls out until they thaw and double in size, then bake for 20 minutes.
