Quick Dinner Rolls

I'm not going to lie, these are not the yummiest rolls ever. They are not the best or fluffiest or the top in any category really. What they are, is really easy rolls that you can make in 45 minutes. I often turn to these rolls on a weeknight when it's already 5:30 and I'm still trying to figure out what to make for dinner. These are great because I can start them at 5:30, make something else for dinner that takes less than an hour, and have dinner and homemade rolls on the table by 6:30. Perfect!
(Will update this post with pictures next time I make a batch of these puppies)
Quick Dinner Rolls
Original Recipe 30 Minute Dinner Rolls
Adapted Recipe by Me!

1 cup and 2 Tbsp warm water (between 105 and 115 degrees)
1/3 cup Oil
1/4 cup Sugar
2 Tbsp Yeast
1 tsp Salt (I use sea salt)
1 egg, beaten
3-4 cups flour
1 cold stick of Butter

  1. Mix warm water, oil, sugar and yeast together in a warmed mixer bowl.
  2. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Start to preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  4. Add salt and egg. Blend well.
  5. Add flour, one cup at a time until soft dough is formed. (I end up adding 3 cups)
  6. Knead on a floured surface for 5-10 minutes. (Add last cup of flour during kneading if necessary)
  7. Shape into golf-ball sized balls and place into greased 13x9 pans.
  8. Cover with a dish cloth and let rise in a warm place from 5-30 minutes, depending on how much time you have. You can even let it rise for an hour if you aren't in a rush.
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes. (Check them after 8-10 minutes. If they are getting too brown, tent them with foil)
  10. Take them out, grab that cold stick of butter, and rub butter over the tops of each and every roll. 
  11. Serve warm and enjoy :)
