The first time I made these rolls , I fell in love with wheat bread all over again! I couldn't believe how light and yummy they were! This recipe also makes great hamburger buns.
Make these for your next Thanksgiving dinner....

4 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. all purpose flour
1 T. active dry yeast
1 T. Vital Wheat Gluten
1/2 c. milk
1 c. warm water
1/3 c. vegetable oil, butter or margarine
1/4 c. honey
2 eggs, room temperature

Put all of the wheat flour, yeast, gluten, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Combine water, milk, oil and honey and eggs. Add to the flour and mix well.
Cover and sponge for 20-30 minutes.
Add all purpose flour, until dough clings to hook and almost cleans the sides.
Knead for 5-6 minutes. (Longer kneading time is important for wheat breads!)
Lift hook and lightly touch the dough. It should be smooth, elastic and not sticky.

Divide dough into 2 piles. Cover with plastic wrap and rest for 10 minutes.
Shape as desired; put rolls on greased baking sheets.
Cover with plastic wrap and rise in warm, draft free place for 20-30 minutes.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 18-20 minutes.
