    Roasted Garlic and Sage Pocket Rolls

    This roll recipe is easy to prepare using a bread machine.


    • 1 whole head of garlic, slice 1/4 inch off the top of the garlic head, using a butcher knife
    • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon ground sage
    • 5 tablespoons no-trans fat margarine, (with about 8 grams of fat per tablespoon) melted, divided
    • 1/2 cup low-fat milk, warmed to around 110 degrees plus 3 tablespoons
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 large egg, beaten
    • 2 tablespoons egg substitute, (or 1 egg white)
    • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    • 1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
    • 1 package active dry yeast


    Step 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F. Place garlic head (cut side up) on a piece of foil and drizzle olive oil over the top. Wrap the foil around it to seal well. Bake for 30-40 minutes. When garlic head is cool, squeeze the soft garlic from each clove into a custard cup. Stir in the sage and 2 tablespoons of melted margarine. Set mixture aside.
    Step 2
    While garlic is roasting, add warm milk, 3 tablespoons melted margarine, sugar, salt, egg and egg substitute, whole wheat and white flours to bread machine pan (in that order, or in the order suggested by the manufacturer). Make a well in the flour and add the yeast into the well.
    Step 3
    Set the bread machine to DOUGH cycle (about 1 hour and 40 minutes) and press START.
    Step 4
    When dough is ready, roll it out onto a lightly floured, flat surface (a sheet of wax paper works well) into a rectangle about 10x15 inches. Spread the garlic mixture evenly over the top of the rectangle. Cut the rectangle lengthwise into seven 2-inch-long strips. Fold each piece over to make a pocket (the garlic mixture will be in the middle). Set the rolls in a 9x13-inch pan coated with canola cooking spray. Cover pan with a clean kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 30-40 minutes).
    Step 5
    Bake rolls until golden brown on top (about 18-20 minutes). Enjoy!
