Some ideas for fillings include:


  1. Melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds or until just melted.

  2. Combine the melted butter, pineapple juice, milk and honey together in a microwave proof bowl.  Microwave for one minute on medium heat or until the mixture is heated through.  The milk may curdle, but that's okay.

  3. Sift together the plain flour, yeast and salt.  Pour in the pineapple mixture.

  4. Mix to combine.  Then add the remaining ingredients.

  5. Transfer the mixture to a floured board and knead until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.

  6. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, and cover with plastic wrap.  Allow it to rise in a warm place for two hours.  A sunny window is perfect.

  7. Remove the plastic wrap and 'punch' down the dough.  Give it another good knead, then separate the dough into 12 even balls.

  8. Grease a large baking tray, and arrange the 12 bread rolls at even spaces.

  9. Again, set the dough aside to rise in a warm place.  Leave for another 90 minutes.

  10. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.  Bake the rolls for 20 minutes or until golden.

  11. Serve warm.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • These bread rolls freeze really well.  Once cooked and cooled, double wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for up to two months.
  • Ham and Cheese

  • Pulled Pork with Gravy and Apple Sauce

  • Pulled Beef with cheese and coleslaw
