To make dinner rolls: portion into the 12 pieces, roll out thin and then roll up like a sausage, here I have added a garlic, rosemary, fetta and sundried tomatoes for extra flavour, leave them to rise for about 15 minutes or until they have grown a third of their size again, and bake in a 200 degree C oven.
