- These are SOOO good. My favorite dinner roll recipe by far and easy to make.
- The trick to a soft roll is keeping the dough sticky but not so sticky that it sticks to you after you touch it will your finger and pull away. It might stick for a moment but then pulls cleanly away. If you are using the dough hook and your mixer (which I recommend for ease), you can also test dough by looking in the bottom of your mixer bowl. If the sides of the bowl are clean but there is a just a tiny bit sticking to the bottom as the mixer spins the dough, it's perfect.
For the dough:
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tsp. instant yeast
- 1¼ tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. lukewarm water
- 2 cloves garlic
- 3 tbsp. melted butter
- ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine the dry ingredients. Add the olive oil, milk and water. Mix until ingredients have formed a dough then wwitch to the dough hook and knead on low speed until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
2. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, turn once to coat, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise for about 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.
3. Divide the dough into 10 equal portions.
4. Roll each piece into a 10-inch rope and tie into a knot. Take the end lying on the bottom/underneat and bring it up over the top of the knot, tucking the end of it down into the middle of the knot. Take the end that is lying on top/over the knot and tuck it into the middle of the knot underneath.
5. Transfer rolls to a lightly greased cookie sheet/parchment covered cookie sheet/slipmat covered cookie sheet. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise about 45 minutes or until puffy.
6. Make the glaze by mixing the garlic and seasoning with melted butter then brush lightly over the top of the rolls.
7. Bake at 350 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned but do not overcook. Leftovers reheat nicely the next day. by microwaving for 20-30 seconds.
