5 Tbsp butter-softened

Let the egg set out to warm to room temp or run it under tap water to warm it.

Do not use a cold egg.

Combine water and both milks in a microwave safe dish and heat for 30 seconds or til warm but not hot.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the bread crumbs.

If you have a dough mixer, use that, if not, use a wooden spoon.

Mix for 15-20 min.

Lightly dust a board or countertop with flour and knead dough for 10-15 min,addong more flour as needed.
(dough should be on the "sticky" side)

Place the dough back in the mixing bowl that has been lightly sprayed with a nonstick spray.

Cover with a clean,damp cloth and set in a warm place until doubles in volume.

Place breadcrumbs on a flat surface or in a bowl.

Pinch off dough into "ice cream scoop" portions and roll in the breadcrumbs.

Place breadcrumb coverd dough, at least 1 1/2-2 inches apart, on a sprayed baking sheet.

Again cover and let rise in warm place until doubled in volume.

Bake at 375 deg for 10-15 min or until golden brown.
