Triple Mustard and Gruyere Bread Thins

As a bread baker, I’m always experimenting with new flavor combinations. My mustard and Gruyere bread has become my all-time favorite for sandwiches. The bread elevates every sandwich to gourmet status.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 3 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups bread flour
  • 8 ounces smoked Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon each sesame seeds, poppy seeds and mustard seeds

Directions

  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine egg, oil, minced onion, stone-ground mustard, ground mustard, onion powder, salt, yeast mixture and 2 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Stir in cheese.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  • Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide and shape into 18 balls, about 2 ounces each. Flatten each ball to a 4-in. circle. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until slightly puffed, about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Brush rolls with Dijon mustard; if desired, sprinkle with seeds. Bake until lightly browned, 15-18 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Freeze option: Freeze cooled rolls in freezer containers. To use, thaw at room temperature or, if desired, microwave each roll on high until heated through, 10-15 seconds.
