The first 8 ingredients are for Rachelle's 50/50 White/Wheat Rolls.
Dissolve yeast in warm water in large mixing bowl. Add sugar first then dry milk and oil. Mix about 30 seconds then slowly add flour and salt. Mix until dough is soft but not sticky. Place bowl in a warm area and let rise 1 hour.
The remaining 7 ingredients are for the Confetti Cowboy Meatballs that go inside the rolls.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the remaining ingredients together and form in to 2-ounce meatballs. Place meatballs on large baking sheet and bake to 160 degrees internal temperature approximately 15 minutes. When dough is ready and meatballs are cooked, in a muffin pan, make a thin "nest" of dough to cover bottom and sides of muffin cups. Place one meatball inside each "nest" and flatten a bit. Make three (3) small dough balls and place on top of each meatball. Bake 15 minutes or until dough is golden brown.
