These rolls came together totally by accident. The dough began its life as hamburger rolls, but while it was resting in the refrigerator, I ran to the grocery store for a few things. Always interested in different sausages, fresh or smoked, I came upon a flavor I had not seen before-a cracked pepper smoked sausage! What if I wrapped the dough around thin slices of the this fully cooked peppery sausage! It was a great idea! The finished product was a success and will a little spicy mustard to pep it up, I had a great picnic bread or buns for hamburgers, hotdogs or other sandwiches.
3 cups bread flour
1/2 plain yogurt
1/2-1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
4-6 ounces thinly sliced fully cooked smoked sausage of choice (I used a cracked pepper smoked sausage)
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon water
Place ingredients in the bread pan of a bread machine and process on the dough cycle according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your bread machine. Check the machine and either add more water or more flour for a well-mixed dough.When cycle has completed, remove dough from pan and place on a lightly floured surface. Let rest 5-10 minutes.
Divide dough into 9 or 12 pieces depending upon what size you wanted your finished roll. To fill the rolls, take a ball of dough and wrap it around 3-4 slices of the smoked sausage. Pinch to seal completely. Place rolls on a parchment lined baking pan. Let rise in a warm place about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix egg yolk with the 1 teaspoon water. Brush the mixture on the rolls. Bake 25-30 minutes or until rolls are golden browned. Serve warm or at room temperature. They freeze well.
