    1. In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in 1 cup warm water. Let stand until creamy; about 10 minutes.
    2. In a large bowl, stir together the yeast mixture with milk, eggs, salt, butter, parsley, chives and half the flour. Add the remaining flour, a little at a time, until dough has pulled together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface then knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl then turn to coat with oil. Cover with a clean damp cloth and put in a warm place to rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
    3. Grease two baking trays. Deflate the dough then turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 24 pieces. Shape each piece into a round ball then place into the prepared trays. Cover the rolls with a warm, damp cloth then let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
    4. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg white with 2 tablespoons of water; brush egg wash over tops of rolls.
    5. Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

    Used different ingredients. What a great recipe. This was my first time ever making bread, and it came out so good. I was a bit nervous about the bread rising, but everything came out fine. I used basil and parsley and substituted milk for soy milk. Thank you so much  -  08 Oct 2008


    Used different ingredients. These were nice, big, tender rolls. They took about 30 minutes to bake, and were very good. I added parmesan cheese. Thanks!  -  08 Oct 2008


    Something else. Delicious, have made it twice now. I found that I needed to add about 400ml of water to the dough when mixing it to get it to pull together properly.  -  08 Oct 2008
