Weeknight Dinner Rolls


I am not a big bread maker.  It takes too long to make homemade bread, and I just don't have hours to wait during the week. I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest for quick yeast rolls and decided to give it a shot.

Wow!  These were a huge hit.  Chicken Legs was amazed at how quick and easy these rolls were.   He tells everyone about them - seriously!  Not only are they super quick and easy, they taste great!  They are especially tasty slathered with honey butter. Give them a try tonight; I promise you won't be disappointed.




Weeknight Dinner Rolls

(Printable Recipe)


1 cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water
1/3 cup oil
2 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3 1/2 cups bread flour (can use all-purpose)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine water, oil, yeast and sugar. Stir to combine and let rest for 15 minutes. At medium speed, add salt, egg and flour. Knead with dough hook until flour is thoroughly mixed in and the dough is soft and smooth (approximately 2-3 minutes). Divide dough into 12 balls and place in a lightly greased 9x13 pan.  Let rest for 10 minutes.

Bake 10-15 minutes until golden brown.

  1. I'm always looking for good "quick" bread recipes, I'll give this a try-thanks:@)

  2. They look perfect and I'm amazed they can be made so quickly. I guess they do their raising while cooking - like a biscuit. I'll be showing this to the family baker.

  3. This dough also makes great cinnamon rolls. This recipe is similar to my 30 minute rolls.

  4. Any thoughts on how these would do if you used whole wheat flour? I'm not a big bread maker or eater either (so I'm never sure if you can just sub whole wheat for white), but my family would love these and the only way I will is if they are wheat.

  7. These look so good. I'm not sure why, but I'm kind of scared of yeast. I've never really made homemade bread where yeast is involved...I think I need to get over that fear and give these a try!

  8. I have a honey butter recipe that's pretty easy, Susan.

    Ingredients:

    1 cup sugar
    1 cup honey
    1 cup cream
    4 sticks unsalted butter

    Place first three ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat, stirring as necessary. Bring to full boil and boil for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and pour over butter sticks (I put mine in my stand mixer) and beat until thoroughly mixed. Makes 4 half pint jars or two pint jars.

    I always let mine sit out on the counter until they've cooled and then put them in the fridge. Not sure how long it lasts as we always eat it before it goes bad. There is some slight separation so stir before using. It's creamy and amazing. I have to resist the urge to eat it by the spoonful!

  9. Just found you and I mut say I am enjoying it ! Please be sure to provide little details like 'instant' yeast or just 'dry active yeast' so some of us that are more avid bakers (or not) will use the right product. 2 T is alot for the wrong yeast ! looks very good, and I might try this--but first answer my question-please !

    1. Denise - I used instant yeast. I think you could use regular yeast and be ok as well.

      These are easy peasy. Hope you like them!

  10. These look delicious! Can't wait to try. Thanks!

  11. Angee - you should be able to sub at least half of the flour for whole wheat. You could do all of it, in fact, but you'll need to start with about 1/2 to 1 cup less flour and add as you knead. Whole wheat flour is much denser. King Arthur Flour's website has a lot of great tips on subbing whole grains for processed if you need more info.

  12. Steph, These look great and not too scary to make for the novice bread makers like me. I love yeast rolls but have never had the time for all that rising, punching down, rising stuff so I will try these. Thanks!

  13. Made these tonight! Less than 1 hour and I had real bread! My hubby was happy as were my friends that I shared them with! I may need to cut the recipe in half for my family, or stash half in the freezer for another night! YUM!

  14. Made these tonight and they were GREAT!!! Very quick & easy to make! Thanks Stephan for another Great Recipe!!,

    Peace!!!

  15. These look great but I dont have a stand mixer. Any idea if I can use a bread machine on the "roll/bread" setting?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ericka - you could mix it by hand. I think the bread machine would over mix the dough.

  17. Can't wait to try this! Adding it to my menu for next week. Simple is what I like!

  18. Made these tonight---yum is just not enough to describe how good these were!!! And so easy!! I'm always afraid of yeast bread too, and really only know how to use my bread machine for anything yeast-related. These, though... Even I could make them!

    Thanks for posting these!! I've loved everything I've made from your blog!!

    Found you via Pinterest! : )

  19. Made them! And they are actually pretty good. Would be awesome with honey butter brushed over the top. And they would be great as a garlic cheese roll... cinnamon roll....oh the possibilities... and they are very quick and easy

  20. Made these last night. Awesome. Yeast breads scare me too.. But they turned out perfect....served with honey butter.

  21. Made these tonight. They had sort of a funny taste like maybe I used too much yeast? I used the super quick kind...2 tbsp. Seems like maybe it was too much. On the back of the packet for bread it said to use a packet. I almost used all three :\

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oops I meant 2 packets and it makes 2 loaves of bread. So I think I did somethin wrong :(

    ReplyDelete
  23. 3 packets would still be less than 2 T. instant yeast (super fast) is what you used.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Just realized I used cold water instead of warm. :\ would that have given it a funny taste?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Just made these. The only change was butter instead of oil. Super easy and yummy. I'm telling my friends.
