Soft Dinner Rolls

Soft Dinner Rolls

I know that some consider a piece of bread an afterthought when having supper but for me, it’s crucial to have it present at most {if not all} meals.  What can I say?  I’m a carb-girl.  However, if it happens to be a roll that’s hard and dense, I’d rather not have it at all.  There’s such comfort that can be derived from the depths of a hot fluffy roll smeared with butter.

Soft Dinner Rolls
Prep time

Cook time

Total time


Serves: 9-12 Rolls

  • 4 oz whole milk
  • 2 tb + 2 ts unsalted butter
  • 1¼ ts yeast
  • 1 room temperature egg
  • 2¼ c unbleached flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tb sugar

  1. Heat the milk and butter, making sure not to exceed 120* and stir in the yeast.
  2. In a large bowl, add in the rest of the ingredients along with the milk/butter/yeast mixture.
  3. Knead/mix the dough for 4-7 minutes. It’s ready when the dough is soft, sticks to itself and is smooth and elastic.
  4. Tuck the dough into a greased and covered bowl and allow to rest for about an hour or until doubled in size.
  5. Portion out equal pieces on a lightly dusted work surface and allow to rest in the pan it will bake in, making sure the pan is well greased. Cover and rest for 30 minutes.
  6. Brush the risen rolls with egg wash {egg + water or cream/milk} and bake at 350 for 11-14 minutes.
  7. Brush with melted butter, if desired and serve hot/warm.
