I have been producing lots of finger food lately. I made these soft breadrolls and frozen them; I am going to use them as mini panini for my wedding buffet.
They were easy to make and before putting them in the freezer I tested a couple just in time for my lunch break. I had them with a generous filling of Parma ham and cheese, they were great with a glass of red wine!
These are soft little panini which you could fill with Nutella or jam too.

Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Add the milk, the melted butter (at room temperature) and the salt. Mix well.
Put the dough on your working top and knead for 10 minutes then place it in a bowl and cover with cling film; let it rest for a couple of hours or until it has doubled in volume.
When the dough has risen shape it into a long sausage and cut it into small pieces of about 30 g or 1 oz each.
Make small balls of dough. You can do this by folding the dough at the base with both hands. Pull the edges of the dough down and push it with your thumbs at the base.
Line the balls over a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and let them rest in a warm place for a couple of hours covered by a cloth.
Whip the egg and brush the dough with it. Cook at 200C or 390F for 20 minutes or until they look golden.
Slice your panini in the middle and fill them with ham, cheese, jam, or chocolate spread.. anything you fancy!
