Blue-Ribbon Herb Rolls

I made these for the first time a couple of days ago. We ate them with yummy homemade cream of broccoli soup. They went so well with the soup. It was delicious!

Blue-Ribbon Herb Rolls
Recipe from Taste of Home

2 packages active dry yeast
2 3/4 cups warm water, divided
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons dill weed
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 egg, beaten
4 cups whole wheat flour
4 to 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add the oil, honey, salt, seasonings, egg, whole wheat flour and remaining water. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.

2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth adn elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Shape dough into 1 inch sized balls; place 3 balls in each greased muffin cup. Cover and let rise until doubled, 20-25 minutes. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Yield: 4 dozen

Li'l Cheddar Meat Loaves

This is one of Tony and the kids' favorites! A lot of people don't like meatloaf, but this is a good one, and they are perfectly sized.  Just serve with mashed potatoes and gravy and corn!  Perfect meal! (at least my family think so!)

Li'l Cheddar Meatloaves
Recipe from Taste of Home
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound lean ground beef
2/3 cups ketchup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard

In a bowl, beat the egg and milk. Stir in cheese, oats, onion and salt. Add beef and mix well. Shape into eight loaves; place in a greased 9X13 baking dish. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard; spoon over loaves. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. (45 minutes has always been plenty for me!)
Tony (hubby) and Caleb (son #1) kindof turn theirs into a shepherd's pie. They like to put it on top of their mashed potates and gravy (white sauce) and then put a bunch of corn on top of that! To each their own I guess!:)
