Baps Breakfast Sandwiches

Do you ever have breakfast for supper? Once in a while, we do but not very often. When we sat down for supper, my son asked why we didn't have these for breakfast. I told him that the bread took a couple of hours to make. It was way to early for me to wake up. I think he wouldn't mind eating these sandwiches anytime of the day.  Since it was so late, I wrapped up a sandwich and put it in the refrigerator so I could take the photo later when there was light out. Well, my daughter didn't want to wait until I took the photo because she wanted to eat it. She was so kind to take these photos for me while I was at work. What do you think? Didn't she do a great job?

Baps Breakfast Sandwiches
4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups bread flour
1/4 cup shortening
1 (.25 oz) package of active dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 cup water (about 110 degrees F)
3/4 cups lukewarm milk (I microwaved the milk for about 30 seconds.)
additional flour and milk for the top of the bread

Directions for the Baps Bread:
  1. In a small bowl, add the yeast with the sugar to the warm water. Mix quickly and set aside for 5 minutes to proof.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups of all purpose flour with the 2 cups of bread flour.
  3. Cut in the flour with your fingers, food processor, or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  4. Add the yeast water and the lukewarm milk to the flour mixture.
  5. Mix until a soft dough forms. Add the last cup of flour in 1/4 cup intervals until the dough isn't too sticky or dry. 
  6. Knead the dough for 10 minutes on a clean, lightly floured surface.
  7. Place the dough into a lightly greased bowl. Flip the dough and cover with plastic wrap that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  8. Allow the dough to rise for at least 1 hour until it has roughly doubled in size. (I let it rise for a couple of hours since I had left the house.) 
  9. Punch down the dough.
  10. Place the dough onto a clean, lightly floured surface and knead a few times.
  11. Divide the dough into 12 equal oval shaped pieces.
  12. Place the dough onto parchment lined baking sheet about 4 inches apart.
  13. Lightly brush each oval dough with milk and then lightly dust the dough with sifted flour.
  14. Allow the dough to rise for about 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
  15. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  16. In the center of each piece of dough, lightly press your thumb in the center so the surface will be more flatten than domed.
  17. Dust another layer of sifted flour on top of each dough piece.
  18. Bake immediately for 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked underneath.
  19. Allow the bap rolls to cool for a few minutes before assembling into the breakfast sandwiches.
1 Bap roll
1 tsp butter
1 egg fried 
1 strip of bacon
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1/4 cup mixed greens (this was my topping)
  1. Slice the warm roll in half horizontally.
  2. Lightly butter the roll in the center before adding the toppings.
  3. In the center of the slices of bread place the desired toppings of: egg, bacon, cheese, and then the desired mixed greens. 
  4. Serve immediately.
