Ahh, summer. It’s the time for yummy ice cream treats and fresh fruit and veggie sides.
But forget all that! Cuz Amanda needs her carb fix. 😋 Who’s with me? It’s been too long since I’ve had a bread post. I’m going through withdrawal here. 😉 So let’s have some dinner rolls.
These dinner rolls might just be your new favorite roll not only for the holidays, but for any random Tuesday. They’re seriously that easy to make. There’s no fear that they won’t rise correctly. And they come out soft and fluffy each time. Ahh, carb bliss.
These dinner rolls are great any which way you can have them. A lil’ pad of butter? Yep! Jelly? Of course!
But since these guys are nice and sizable I think they’re begging to be part of your dinner. These dinner rolls are great as a melty ham and cheese. And they’re strong enough to hold up to sloppy joes and pulled pork sammies. Are you hungry yet? I am. But…of course…I’m always hungry for bread. That’s not just me, right?
Another great thing about these dinner rolls is that the dough hook on the mixer really does all the work for you. I’ve made recipes like this before where I’ve had to knead dinner rolls by hand. No thanks. 😀 Plus, the faster they get done, the more time you have to eat them. And isn’t that what we all want anyway?
- 1 tbsp active-dry yeast
- ½ cup warm water
- ½ cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp butter, melted
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, stir the yeast together with the warm water and let sit until completely dissolved.
- In a medium bowl mix together the milk, egg, oil, sugar, and salt. Add to the yeast mixture and stir.
- Fit the mixer with the dough hook and add the flour, blending until you get a shaggy dough.
- Knead with the dough hook on low speed for 8-10 minutes. The dough should still be tacky, and will spring back when poked.
- Cover the mixing bowl loosely with plastic wrap and allow it to rise in a warm place until doubled, about an hour.
- Dust your work surface with flour and put a little flour on your hands. Divide the dough into 12 equal balls, rolling them a little on the floured surface to make them smooth orbs.
- Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and arrange the rolls inside, placed a little apart.
- Cover loosely with plastic wrap again and allow to rise until they are pillowy and fill the pan, 30-40 minutes.
- While the rolls rise, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- When the rolls have risen, brush them gently with butter and place in the oven. Bake until golden, 15-18 minutes.
