    Easy Dinner Roll Recipe 

    Hello, my name is Jessica and I am a butter fanatic. To be honest, I’m not sure what I enjoy more, butter or a perfectly executed bread.

    While I appreciate a crusty sourdough, buttery brioche or soft pumpernickel, one thing remains the same, they all taste better with a slab of rich, golden butter.

    Really, bread is a vehicle to get the creamy goodness of butter from point A to point B in a socially acceptable way (although I have been known to lick the butter knife). Easy dinner rolls are one my ways to accomplish my goals.

    While there are plenty of days that I have several hours to bake artisan breads, there are many more nights that I crave freshly baked bread to serve with dinner, but have limited time.

    Correction: there are plenty of nights that I crave BUTTER! Easy dinner rolls are my solution. A basic recipe for the best dinner rolls, I also throw in fresh herbs, garlic or sun dried tomatoes, but one thing remains the same: butter.

    And not all butter is created equal. I prefer either gourmet butter, homemade 5-minute blender butter or one of my 5 favorite compound butters.

    Good butter and a dinner roll recipe need to be paired with amazing dishes, give these a whirl!

    Tools for making Easy Dinner Rolls:

    Stand Mixer– I lived for years without one and I can tell you with 100% confidence that life with one is easier and it is worth the investment.

    9 x 13 Glass Baking Dish– an absolute essential for any kitchen! Use it for baking, marinating or storing. Get one with a lid, you’ll thank me later.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water
    • 1 packet active dry yeast rapid rise
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup Vegetable oil
    • 1 egg room temperature
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3 1/2 cups flour
    • 2 tablespoons butter melted, plus a cold stick for greasing the pan

    Instructions

    • In a large mixing bowl or a stand mixer fitted with the bread hook, combine sugar and yeast, giving a quick stir to combine. Add warm water and allow to bloom for 10-15 minutes. The mixture should be frothy and fragrant.
    • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a 9x13 baking dish with a cold stick of butter.
    • Add oil, egg and salt, stir to combine. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing between each addition.
    • Knead until bread comes together and slaps against the side of the bowl.
    • Turn dough onto a lightly floured cutting board or work surface. Divide into 12 equally sized balls and place into baking dish. Cover and allow to rise for 10 minutes.
    • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until tops are lightly browned. When you remove rolls from oven, baste the tops with melted butter. Serve warm.
