Hey gang! Hope everybody enjoyed their Christmas holiday! I know I did especially because I used the day to take my cheat meal (birthday countdown eating clean journey), and indulge in these homemade dinner rolls that are easy to make and delicious. The main thing I love about this recipe is that it is versatile meaning you can add other ingredients to the original recipe to flavor the rolls anyway you/d like. For instance, I think the next time I make these I am going to add cheddar cheese and chives to make them savory and maybe honey when I want them a little sweeter.
This recipe comes from culinary school recipe book. I remember the day I walked in class and looked at the board and it said we were making dinner rolls as we had transitioned into the breads and doughs section of our recipe books. I was a little nervous because anything that required baking came out of a box or a can. Never had I made breads or doughs from scratch. But I figured, this is school Morghan you are supposed to fuck up and experiment in there, not to mention the thousands of dollars you're spending on it so might as well! My rolls pictured above came out absolutely perfect!
I can promise you after you have read my blog and begin learning to make things homemade it will be very hard for you to purchase store bought, pre-made food when you know you can just make it yourself. It's cost effective and much more tasty! And lastly, you can completely control the ingredients you are putting into your food which a lot healthier. This recipe is the only one I use and can vouch for comfortably. Let's jump into the recipe shall we?
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup white sugar
2 oz. butter melted
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp Instant yeast
1/2 cup water
3 cups flour
1.) Preheat oven to 350
2.) In a bowl add the water, milk, butter, and eggs. Stir in the yeast.
3.) Gradually begin mixing in the flour. When the mix becomes too stuff to stir, knead in the remaining flour. Use only enough to form a dough that can be handled easily.
4.) Place in a greased bowl and brush with melted butter
5.) Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size
6.) Portion into 3 oz pieces and roll. Place in a greased cake pan and cover.
7.) Allow to prove a second time (rise and double in size like in step 5)
8.) Brush the rolls with melted butter and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes
9.) Remove to cooling rack
After you make these I can assure you that your friends and family will think you went to culinary school and have been featured on the food network's top chef! Let me know what you think in the comments section if you have tried this recipe, it doesn't disappoint! Until next time ...
With Love & Food,
