Now for the recipe, all you have to do is mix the flour with the yogurt (I think that Greek yogurt is the best), lightly knead it for about 2 minutes, and let the dough rest for 15 minutes.

Now, cut the dough into 7 or 8 pieces and roll them into small balls.

To make it a bit fancier, I like to brush the bread rolls with some egg wash and sprinkle on some poppy seeds. I do love the taste of poppy seeds. On top of that, it looks so much prettier.

I like to bake my white bread rolls on a pizza tray. Of course, you can also use a baking sheet.

Preheat the oven to 180 Degrees Celcius (fan bake) = 350 Degrees Fahrenheit (convection) and bake for at least 15 minutes.

The result is just amazing – beautiful crispy brown white bread rolls on the outside and soft on the inside.
