Yeast Rolls


Yeast RollsYeast Rolls

These are the easiest yeast rolls you’ll EVER make. 

Not even kidding. They’re so easy, so pretty, and so damn good. This is a recipe from my friend, Mary from Cooking with Mary and Friends.

I saw hers posted on Facebook and I literally had to make them that very day. I’m impatient, maybe just a tad bit. Ok, very impatient. 

These rolls are not too dense, not too light. They’re just right. I’m not a huge bread maker, but I still like to tackle it. I like to play around with some recipes like ciabatta and focaccia, and even pretzel dough.

I’ve made the pretzel dough A LOT.

This yeast roll recipe is even easier than any of those (not to say the others are to difficult to try!) Minimal ingredients, minimal time. Seriously, about an hour and a half before baking, then throw them in the oven for 20 minutes.

These will end up on your regular menu rotation. I mean, unless you just don’t like yeast rolls.                                    

After making these the first time, I split these and made sliders, served them as usual with a pork loin for dinner, made grilled pizza paninis; I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that there are more than a couple of uses for yeast rolls.

It wasn’t long before I made another batch.

To bake these, I used one of my favorite pans, OXO 9×13 Pro Cake Pan, and it was excellent for one batch. I’ve put a convenient link to the pan for you below.
