Marbled Pumpernickel Rye Rolls Recipe

Marbled Pumpernickel Rye Rolls Recipe
The word “quick” is relative, especially when it refers to baking from scratch. Homemade breads and rolls are generally quite time consuming, but, when the dough is prepared in the automatic bread machine, the hands-on time is very minimal, and the machine does the work, freeing up the cook for other tasks. The following Pumpernickel Rye Rolls, are “quick” compared with breads made by conventional methods. The dough is shaped quickly by simply tying strips of dough into knots. Because there are two separate types of dough, it’s nice to have two automatic bread machines. Goodwill stores usually have several on their shelves; most in my area range between $4 and $6 each, so they are very cheap.
Pumpernickel Rye Rolls are dense, making them perfect for sandwiches. They’re perfect for Game Day Reubens, as well as ham and cheese, or pastrami sandwiches.
