I have to admit these are the best I have had!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These dinner rolls are rustic you don't need a fancy mixer to make them. For a yeast roll, they're pretty quick and easy to make. It takes a little arm work to knead the dough, but the outcome is so tasty. When baked, they are soft, almost biscuit-like, but with a lighter texture. For extra flavor, brush the tops with melted butter when they're fresh out of the oven. The perfect side to any meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make The Best Dinner Rolls Ever!

Step-by-Step

  1. Start by activating the yeast. Pour the yeast and water into a bowl.
  2. Heat milk and butter in the microwave for 1 minute (do not boil).
  3. Add to the yeast and water, egg, sugar, salt, and one cup of the flour. Stir just a little.
  4. Add milk and butter (this cant be hot or it will kill the yeast). Stir and switch to a rubber spatula.
  5. Add remaining flour.
  6. Stir until you have a sticky, but knead-able, dough. The more you work the dough the less sticky it becomes.
  7. Pour out on floured surface.
  8. Knead for 6 – 7 minutes, only adding a little flour if it gets too sticky. If too much flour is added, an unpleasant crust forms.
  9. Spray a bowl with butter spray. Make a nice ball and put it in the bowl. Cover.
  10. Let it sit for 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
  11. Now after the dough has risen, remove the cover. Pour onto a floured surface and punch down the dough.
  12. Pat with hands shaping it into a square.
  13. Cut into 12 squares.
  14. Place in a greased pan they can touch (for greased pan, I use non-stick butter flavor spray in a can).
  15. After you place them in the pan simply let them rise approximately 20 minutes.
  16. Brush the rolls with the egg wash. Then bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
