Multigrain Rolls

We loved this recipe from "Better Homes and Gardens Best Comfort Food "!  The dough was just right – easy to work with and the rolls tasted great.  I started them at 9:30 AM and they came out of the oven at 11.  That's fast.
I used bread flour instead of all-purpose.  If you don’t have rye flour, use extra whole-wheat.  I didn’t particularly like the way the rolls were shaped in the book– just a device to photograph something "different” – I made the smaller recipe and baked both a nine inch round pan of 8 rolls and made a couple of bowknot rolls that I baked on a small pan.  Shape them any way you like!  These would also make nice hamburger buns – maybe 8 or 16 each – bake an additional 5 minutes for larger rolls – you may need to put a sheet of foil over the rolls if they brown too fast.  These are perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas meals, as well as with soups or stews.
