Quick & Easy Wheat Dinner Rolls w/ Garlic Herb Butter

Featured at:

 Ms. enPlace

I was really craving some fresh baked bread today so I decided to make a quick dinner roll with some garlic herb butter.  This is the perfect quick recipe.  It requires minimal kneading and produces a perfect light and fluffy dinner roll.  The garlic herb butter is just icing to these fabulous dinner rolls.  Definitely a perfect pairing for me :)

Garlic Herb Butter
1 stick softened butter
1 pinch dried thyme
1 pinch dried parsley
1 pinch dried rosemary
1 pinch dried basil
1 pinch dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper
1/4 tsp lemon juice

  • Mix everything together and store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer, it will keep for about 4-6 weeks in fridge and 4 months in the freezer
Quick and Easy Wheat Dinner Rolls
1 1/2 cups warm water (about 110 degrees)
3 1/2 tsp dry active yeast
2 TBS sugar
2 TBS butter, softened
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups wheat pastry flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 TBS butter, melted
  • In a mixing bowl combine warm water, yeast, and sugar until mixture foams; about 10-15 minutes
  • Meanwhile combine the two flours and mix well
  • When the yeast mixture is ready add the butter, salt, and 1 1/2 cups flour mixture and mix until ingredients come together
  • Continue to add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until mixture begins to clean the sides of the bowl (add more flour if necessary)
  • Let dough rest for about 10 minutes
  • Knead dough until smooth and elastic (dough will be slightly sticky), about 5 minutes
  • Form dough into equal sized balls and place on a greased cookie sheet so they are not touching
  • Let rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes
  • Brush rolls with melted butter
  • Bake in a 375 degree oven until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes
Super easy and nothing beats fresh baked bread with a delicious flavored butter.  You can freeze these too. After they have risen freeze on a cookie sheet overnight or until solid and then place in a ziploc freezer bag.  To prepare form frozen brush with butter and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Below is the nutritional information per serving.  This recipe yields approximately 16 rolls.

  3. All of those herbs in the butter--that's right up my alley! I like that this dough has such a short rising time. Most rolls and breads require a lot of advanced planning. Your rolls are more schedule friendly--yeah!
