   *  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. Submitted By FEMINA@DELPHI.COM On MON, 20 FEB
