Dinner rolls are the basic completion to just about any tasty, home cooked meal. While there are plenty of pre-made packaged rolls, the best kinds of dinner rolls are those that are made from scratch and freshly baked. So how exactly can these dinner rolls be prepared? There are certain ingredients that must be bought and combined in order to create these rolls that will be served with dinner.
Ingredients for Dinner Rolls
There are a number of different ingredients that will be needed to ensure that these dinner rolls come out perfectly. The following ingredients must be used:
• 1 cup milk
• ¼ cup sugar
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1 pinch of salt
• 1 package dry yeast
• ½ cup water
• 4 cups flour
• 2 large eggs, beaten
Directions for the Dinner Rolls
In order to create the dinner rolls, a large sauce pan will be needed. The milk, sugar, butter, and the salt need to be added together into the large sauce pan and heated on medium heat until the ingredients come to a melting texture. Once everything has melted, the saucepan should be removed from the stove and set to cool.
While those ingredients are cooling off after being melted, the yeast and water need to be mixed with a bit of sugar. The sugar helps with the yeast. These ingredients need to be mixed together and then covered. The mixture should be covered for around fifteen minutes. The mixture should come out with some bubbles and foam, which basically means that it is ready.
A large bowl will be needed and in that bowl, the flour and the milk and butter mixture will need to be combined together and beaten with a mixer until all of the ingredients have been thoroughly mixed together. Once they have been mixed together, the yeast should be added and beat for around five minutes. After beating for a few minutes, the 2 eggs (already beaten) need to be added. The dough should feel very soft and should also stick to the hands a bit. Once it feels this way, it is ready to sit in the bowl for about an hour, allowing the dough to increase in its size.
A glass pan will be needed to bake the dough. The surface of that glass pan should be sprinkled with a little bit of flour. The dough can then be patted onto the pan and cut into individual pieces. The pieces should then be rolled, by hand, into balls. The oven need to be put onto 350 degrees F and the dinner rolls should be placed in the oven, baking for a total of around 25 minutes or until they are golden brown. After they are finished baking, a bit of butter can be added to the top of the rolls or they can be left alone, ready to serve with dinner. These rolls are the perfect addition with just about any meal. They are also perfect for dipping with certain dishes.
