Light and fluffy, one-hour dinner rolls are perfect for any meal. Use them anywhere you want a tasty side, and these also make the best slider rolls.
I found this recipe years ago in a very old recipe book and it has filled out many meals. Use the finished rolls as a traditional roll, as slider-size buns, covered with country gravy, or to serve the perfect size sandwich to your littles.
Once you see how easy my one-hour dinner rolls are to make, you will never resort to plain old white bread again. The only tip I have is not to rush the recipe. It truly does take an hour for the dough to rise and become light and airy and it’s worth every minute.
1 Hour Dinner Rolls
Makes 2 dozen
1 Tablespoon + 2 tsp yeast
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cup warm milk
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 cups flour
In a mixing bowl, place warm milk, yeast and sugar.
Let stand for 15 minutes.
Stir in salt, butter and flour.
Let stand for 20 minutes, or until doubled in size.
Punch down, and form into balls the size of an egg(makes 2 dozen)
Place rolls onto a greased cookie sheet for single rolls, in an 8X8 pan for soft sided rolls with brown tops.
Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
For soft rolls, brush with butter as soon as they are removed from the oven. For a little extra flavor, mix some melted butter with honey and brush onto the hot rolls, fresh from the oven.
Serve these with my Smoked Sausage Kale and White Bean Soup for a quick and easy meal.
