Combine yeast, sugar and water in a small bowl then whisk until dissolved. Cover and leave in a warm place for 10 minutes or until it becomes frothy.
Sift flour and salt into a large bowl then stir in the yeast mixture, milk, 2 tablespoons sugar and butter. Mix into a soft dough. Knead on a floured surface until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl then cover and leave in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
Turn dough onto a floured surface then knead until smooth. Divide into 12 portions then roll each into a roll about 12cm. Place on a lightly greased tray then cover with plastic wrap and leave for 15 minutes or until well risen.
Remove the plastic wrap, brush the rolls with a mixture of the egg and milk, then sprinkle evenly with the cheese and bacon.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 20 minutes.
Just delicious! I had a 500g packet of lauke bread mix so used that and scaled the milk and water down to 350mL and made the dough in the bread maker and it worked a treat! I halved the dough before making the rolls, and am hoping that it will survive overnight in the fridge so I can make the rolls fresh again tomorrow. - 03 Nov 2015
