Twisted Rolls with Everything-Bagel Seasoning
Proceed with Step 1 as directed. Proceed with Step 2, dividing dough evenly into 10 (3-ounce) pieces (each a little larger than an egg). Roll each piece into a 14-inch-long rope. Skip Step 3. Fold each rope in half so both ends point in 1 direction. Working with 1 rope at a time, wrap strands of rope around each other to create a twist shape; pinch ends together to seal. Proceed with Step 4 as directed. Skip Steps 5 and 6; instead, preheat oven to 350°F. Stir together 2 tsp. each poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and dried onion flakes and ½ tsp. flaky sea salt in a bowl. Uncover rolls. Beat 1 large egg in a bowl; brush over rolls. Sprinkle seed mixture over rolls. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Brush warm rolls evenly with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
Knot Rolls with Herb Rolls
Proceed with Steps 1 and 2 as directed. Skip Step 3. Shape each rope into a loop, with both ends pointing down. Carefully stretch and pull one of the ends through the loop, making a pretzel shape. Tuck the ends under, making a knot. Proceed with Steps 4 and 5 as directed. Skip Step 6. Instead, stir together ½ cup softened butter, 2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, 1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary, and ¼ tsp. black pepper in a small bowl until combined. Spread warm rolls evenly with herbed butter.
