You guyssss! I have been dying to share these rolls with you. How often do you find yourself desiring some soft homemade rolls with your dinner during the week? If you're like me, probably every single night. But, I really don't like buying canned or store bought rolls unless I have too.
Why? Because, I know that I can make them at home and see right in front of me what I am putting in them, and they're so perfect and warm out of the oven, and I can literally just make them in 30 minutes or less. Minimal ingredients, no headache, these are a weeknight win. Or, ya know, a weekend win.....
They are a "whenever" win.
Ok, don't get me wrong, store bought biscuits and rolls absolutely have their place in my life.
But, for me, there is something just really rewarding about making the rolls myself. I bring them to the table all wafting delicious roll smells in everyone's faces and announce really loudly that these are indeed, homemade.
I could probably quit pointing that out to my family at this point. They're like, yeah ok we know you made them from scratch....thank you....you're awesome.....for the fifth time this week.....can we eat now??
Me = always fishing for compliments.
Another great thing about these guys, is the leftovers! Unless you get a little crazy and eat four rolls at time like I have been known to do. Shame, shame on me.
But, really, the savory topping on our rolls here brings out the best in any sandwich. I use the leftover rolls the very next day in my kids lunchbox. Turkey? Ham? Veggies? Any of those are amazing, and I find it's a welcome change for my kids from the standard bread.
Then, put a little sticky note in the lunch box to again remind your kids that these are homemade. You slaved away in the kitchen for a whole 30 minutes so that they could have this extra special roll as their sandwich bread for lunch. You are the best parent, ever.
Just kidding.....I'd never do something like that.....I mean, probably not.
A few notes here for anyone who has never worked with yeast, never made yeast bread, or has and found it intimidating:
- Yeast bread isn't scary. It's really simple. It does not have to be stressful. Follow the recipe directions and you will believe me, I promise.
- One step you definitely do not want to skip is the "proof" time. After you mix your water, yeast, and sugar, please let it sit for the whole 10 minutes. This is basically a "test" to make sure that your yeast is alive and active and that your rolls will rise beautifully and taste their very best.
- I never get my mixer out for this recipe. I do it all by hand, and honestly I encourage you to do the same. I hate cleaning that dough hook! It's rewarding to plop the dough on the counter and mix it by hand. It also doesn't take any bit longer than using your mixer, and hey, less dishes!
- Your dough will be a tad bit sticky. Flour your hands up to make your life easier when you roll the dough into balls.
Enjoy! Printable recipe for you below.

- 1 Cups and ¼ warm water

- NOTE: If you are mixing by hand, add flour as directed and stir in with a spoon. When you are no longer able to stir, place the dough on your floured counter top and knead the rest of the flour in by hand until well incorporated. (2-3 minutes).
- Shape your dough into 12 balls and place into prepared pan.
- Allow dough to rest for 5 minutes, before placing in the oven.
