Y'all remember that episode of Martin when Gina and Martin were into it and he was screaming, "Not my momma's biscuits?" Well, listen here... these dinner rolls beat Martin's momma's biscuits. I can guarantee it! These warm & buttery yeast rolls are very easy to make thanks to our friend, yeast and they smell heavenly.
You can make these soft and chewy rolls in a few hours and they don't have to sit after they come out the oven. In fact, I love them hot! Once you make these, you'll want more. This recipe will make plenty (around 30-45) so put your extras in a ziploc bag and freeze them! They'll be good for about 2 months. Just take them out of the baggie and warm them in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and you have a certified winner on your hands. I hope you enjoy!
Tip from Brittney: When using yeast, remember that yeast is living and too much heat will kill it. Liquids should be warm and around 110-115 degrees. Anything below or above that will cause your yeast to not work properly. Happy Baking.
- 3 Large eggs
- ¼ c. + 2 Tbsp. Sugar
- 5 c. All-Purpose Flour
- 4 oz. Butter, melted (that's a half a cup)
- 4 oz. Water
- 16 oz. Whole Milk
- 2 packages Active-Dry Yeast
- In a cup or small bowl, combine the warm water with yeast and sit aside for approximately 5 minutes or until foam appears.
- In a large bowl, using a whisk, mix the sugar, butter, milk, salt and eggs. Slowly fold in the yeast mixture.
- Using a plastic or wooden spoon or spatula (no metal), add the flour slowly (one cup at a time). The dough will become "shaggy" and will begin to pull away from the sides of the bowl. You may or may not use all of the flour. You may also need up to one cup more.
- Place the dough on a floured surface (I use my countertop) and knead the dough until it becomes smooth. It takes between 2-10 minutes depending on how well you knead.
- Divide the dough into equal pieces and roll each piece into a smooth ball. You should have between 24-40 dough balls, depending on how big or small you made each piece.
- Lightly butter a dish or use parchment paper and place the dough balls on a baking sheet, leaving equal space between each.
- Cover the dough and with a towel & let them rise for 75-90 minutes, until the dough doubles in size.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Once preheated, bake for 15-20 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.
