Soft White Sandwich Rolls


My kids are picky eaters.  One is actually much pickier than the other, but still I usually hear it from both at least once during the day.

This is not news; I’ve mentioned it many times before.

One likes pasta, one doesn’t. One loves burgers, the other won’t eat meat.  Neither really loves fish, or chicken, or pork…

What do they like? Pizza, caesar salad, and sandwiches. Of course the fussier of them will only eat a sandwich on a homemade roll, and only if it’s a soft roll.
