I don't think I have but can't really post the recipe openly because of copyright rules. However...check out the following:

CORNMEAL PAN ROLLS
(Makes 18 rolls)

2 1/2 cups bread flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 cup warm water
2 Tbsp. softened butter
1 egg, beaten

Throw it all in your bread machine and set on DOUGH cycle. When finished, shape into 18 rolls and put into a greased pan and set to rise in a warm, draft-free area for about 45 minutes. They should double in size. Bake in preheated 400F oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and brush soft butter on tops of rolls.

I bought my bread machine in 1999 and it has never been used to actually make bread as it is designed to do. I use it exclusively to do the kneading and for the first rise of my bread products. I used to make bread the "old-fashioned" way but arthritis in both my hands put an end to that. So, now, my trusty bread machine is my best friend for those tasks.

Thanks I think it's great that you make all your own bread products. I need to do more of that. I should check out thrift shops for more baking pans.

I went to Costco, so I brought home a rotisserie chicken. The plan is to have that with fettuccine Alfredo using the fettuccine I have leftover from the last time I made fresh pasta and a salad.

Question, if you want to use a stand mixer, For how long would you let it knead with the dough hooks? I'm never sure just how long to let the mixer do it's thing if I'm adapting a hand kneaded recipe.

Our dinner tonight may be take-out. I have a dental appointment this afternoon so I may be too emotionally drained to think of anything. I hate getting me teeth cleaned! Torture!!

My best guess is about 10 minutes or so. As long as the dough is fully mixed and silky in texture.

My colleagues and I suffered through a day-long, painfully boring inservice, so DH and I will be going out for Thai tonight. Not that I needed an excuse....

I got off work in time to put a pot roast in the crockpot. Beer-braised pot roast it is, with some oven roasted potato's, broccoli. I may have time for a quick beer bread as well.

Ackk. I had my fishies swimming in the water to thaw and it just dawned on me I don't have eggs. No eggwash, no breaded perch (could've sworn they were walleye, but they were perch). So I just took a steak out to thaw. Hopefully I can muster up a couple spuds or something. And a salad will have to do for my greenage. I've been so lazy with my grocery shopping lately.

You could have just fried your fishies in butter, Pac, some Cajun seasoning,

Didn't make the shrimp and Avo salad as the avos were not ripe yet. Tomorrow.
