Liverwurst Bundles

1 ½ cups rye flour
1 to 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
1 package active dry yeast
1 ½ teaspoons caraway seed
¾ cup milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons shortening
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
Prepared mustard
Prepared horseradish

1 8-ounce package liverwurst, cut in 8 slices
8 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled

In large mixer bowl combine 1 cup of the ryle flour, ⅓ cup of the all-purpose flour, yeast and caraway seed. In saucepan heat milk, sugar, shortening, and salt just till warm (115° to 120°), stirring till shortening almost melts. Add to dry mixture; add egg. Beat at low speed of electric mixer for ½ minute, scraping sides of bowl. Beat 3 minutes at high speed. Stir in remaining rye flour and enough of the remaining all-purpose flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Knew on floured surface till smooth (8 to 10 minutes). Shape into a ball. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover; let rise till double (about 45 to 60 minutes).

Divide dough into 8 pieces. On lightly floured surface roll each piece into a 5-inch circle. Spread dough with mustard and horseradish to within ½ inch of edges. Place 1 slice of liverwurst on one-half of each circle of dough; top with onion slice and a little crumbled bacon. Fold dough to form a half-circle and seal edge with tines of fork. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise till almost double (about 30 minutes). Bake in 375° oven for 18-20 minutes. Coll the bundles on wire rack. Refrigerate. Serve chilled. (If desired, individually wrap cooled sandwiches in clear plastic wrap. Label; freeze.) Makes 8 sandwiches.
