and it is Sourdough roundup. Roundup Link
I wanted so much to enter since I have my new sourdough starter.
The preferable flour is rye and I didn’t have any,
but I had so much dill seed from the garden to use.
What is better than dill & rye?
I wanted to go ahead with unbleached all purpose and make something
with the dill seed since I didn’t have the rye, and don’t
believe I’ll have any before the roundup.
I hope it is acceptable for the roundup. If not I understand.
Rules are rules, but I’ll give it a try anyway.
I found a King Arthur recipe for dill rolls with onion, but it
The recipe also used mashed potato and I had leftovers from
I had the potatoes seasoned with butter, salt, and milk,
so that needs to be taken into account here.
I took the recipe and winged it with the sourdough, by omitting the
water, yeast, and reducing the flour and dried onion.
The rolls came out great with a wonderful browned out side and
beautiful crumb. They were the best rolls I had ever winged in my
life! ( I hope it isn’t sourdough beginners luck!)
I brushed them with egg wash before baking ,which I don’t believe
I’ll do the next time I try to make them. I also think I’ll add a bit more dill seed.
I was a little upset that I only got 9 rolls from it, the original
said it made 16.
If your going to try them, kick start your starter overnight
the night before with 1/2 cup warm water and 1/2 cup flour.
I am calling them Dilly O’ Sourdough Rolls.
Dilly O’ Sourdough Rolls
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup mashed potato
1 cup sourdough starter
2 1/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour, plus more for work surface
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons dill seed
2 tablespoons minced dried onion
1 teaspoon salt
Place all ingredients in a bread machine in order given and place machine
on dough cycle. Let the cycle work about 10-15 minutes and then
remove the pan.
Don’t allow it to go into the rise cycle.
The dough should be soft yet holding a ball well. Allow to rest
10 minutes then dump onto a floured work space.
Fold the dough several times (4-6), incorporating more of the flour
and keep it from sticking to your hands then divide it into 9 equal pieces.
Form the pieces into balls.
Place the pieces on a greased baking sheet about 2 inches
apart and cover with a towel.
Let them rise to double in a warm area (5-6 hours).
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake the rolls
20-25 minutes until browned.
Enjoy hot with butter, or cool and store in an airtight container.
