   *  If desired, you can use cornmeal or sesame or poppy
   seeds on the bread. Combine 1 cup flour, yeast, and
   salt in a mixing bowl.  Stir in water, buttermilk,
   egg, oil and honey. Beat until smooth with an electric
   mixer. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft,
   sticky dough. Turn onto a floured surface, continue to
   work in flour until dough is stiff enough to knead.
   Knead until smooth and elastic, but still soft (3 to 5
   minutes). Place in an oiled bowl; turning once to coat
   top of dough. Cover; let rise until double in bulk
   (about 45 minutes). Punch dough down. Shape into 16
   equal balls.  Let rest 5 minutes. Roll out each ball
   to a 1/4-inch thick round. If desired, brush with
   melted butter and sprinkle with garnishes. Set on
   baking sheets. Bake at 450 degrees F. for 5 to 8
   minutes. NOTE: There is no second rising in this
   recipe so that you get flat loaves.
