College Student Wins Sandwich Contest at Wisconsin State Fair
Anne Luty of Waukesha has won the new Fleischmann’s Yeast Sensational Sandwich Bread contest at the Wisconsin State Fair. This newly themed contest celebrates the 250th Birthday of the Sandwich!
Anne scored the coveted blue ribbon for her tasty Seeded Sandwich Rolls, a recipe she tweaked, perfected and turned into an open-faced pizza sandwich. Once the rolls are made, it’s easy to throw together the sandwich for a meal or even a snack. Her main tip for working with yeast…proof the yeast in the liquid ingredients before adding to the dry ingredients to make sure the yeast has been activated.
Anne is a student at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She will be returning this fall as a senior in graphic design. Her main hobbies include baking, crocheting and participating in the Milwaukee area German Club.
Seeded Sandwich Rolls with Pizza Filling
1 package Fleischmann’s Active Dry Yeast
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs, beaten
3 cups flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons poppy seeds (or sesame seeds)
Stir together the Fleischmann’s yeast, sugar, warm water and milk in measuring cup. Mix with a fork and set aside for 5 minutes.
In a separate bowl, add the salt, sugar, oil and eggs. Stir in the yeast mixture. Add the flours until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl. Knead the dough for approximately 5 minutes.
Place the dough in a lightly greased large bowl and let rise until doubled, about 2 hours. Punch down the dough and knead again. Split the dough into 6 to 8 equal pieces. Form into roll shapes. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Allow to rise for another hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush rolls with egg wash and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Serve with your favorite filling.
Pizza sauce (tomato sauce)
This sandwich roll is best served as a personal pizza sandwich. Once the rolls have cooked, slice them in half and spread with butter and pizza sauce. Then top with your favorite shredded cheese. Add any of your favorite toppings like pepperoni or vegetables. Place the “pizzas” on a cookie sheet and broil on high until the cheese is melted and they are slightly golden brown.
