40 minute rolls

I planned the 40-minute hamburger buns (as rolls) for tonight, but DD wanted to make them yesterday, so we made them into bread sticks and had them with spaghetti last night. They were easy and delicious!


* 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
* 1 cup warm water, plus 2 tablespoons warm water (115*)
* 1/3 cup vegetable oil
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 3-3 1/2 cups flour

We didn’t have any eggs on hand, so left the egg out. Still delicious. And we used 3 c. unbleached all-purpose flour plus 1/2 c. whole wheat flour.


DD measures the sugar.

It’s hard to tell, but there *is* a plastic cutting mat on the counter for this step. DD cut the dough ball in half, then half again, then into thirds.

She rolled the dough balls into sticks…

…and sprayed the tops with butter flavored cooking spray, then sprinkled basil and powdered garlic on nine of the rolls. She left the others plain.

Resting for ten minutes, then ready to bake at 425* for 8 to 12 minutes.

Wish you could smell these…we baked them for 10 minutes, but they could have used a minute or two more.

Supper was delicious! Spaghetti with home made sauce, stir-fried zucchini with garlic, corn on the cob, and fresh bread.

Try this bread! It can be made into hamburger buns, bread sticks, rolls, whatever. Easy and very tasty. The recipe was simple enough for DD to make and she really enjoyed getting such a quick return on her bread making efforts.
