Say that recipe name 10 times... actually, make this recipe 10 times! These rolls are so soft and easy to make. Plus, they make the perfect compliment to any meal...especially a thanksgiving meal!
These rolls will last you a good 2-3 days before they get harder (still good, but just not the same). If you don't finish your rolls, you can make the best croutons from these.
Croutons: tear or cut rolls into bite-sized pieces. Toss with olive oil and sea salt. Bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes or until slightly golden. Toss or flip halfway through & make sure they have space on a baking sheet so all sides get toasty.
Whether you eat these as a roll or in crouton-form, they are so delish. Let's get baking!
SMALL BATCH BUTTERY BREAD ROLLS
yield: 8 Rolls | ready in an hour
I N G R E D I E N T S
1 packet of yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
1/4 cup warm water
2 tbsp sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup milk + 1 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp melted butter
M E T H O D
Carefully mix yeast, sugar and warm water together. Rest for 10 mins to activate yeast.
To the yeast mixture, add in flour, salt, milk + vinegar. Knead for 7 minutes using an electric mixer with a dough hook.
Add in melted butter & knead for another 5 mins.
Dough will be slightly sticky**— that is ok! Cover with a towel and rest for 30 minutes in a warm place.
After 30 mins of rest, split dough on a flour surface into 8 equal- pieces & roll into little balls.
Add a thick layer of butter to an oven-proof dish (I used an 8” round pan). Place roll in pan, cover with a towel & rest for 30 mins (until rolls have doubled in size)
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Bake rolls for 20-25 minuets, until golden.
Top with butter & flakey sea salt for absolute bread roll perfection!
**If dough is super sticky, add 1/4-1/2 cup of flour.

FLOUR you can substitute bread or self rising flour. I have not tried with a 1:1 gluten free flour.
BUTTER good ol' salted or unsalted butter works! If you opt for salted butter, reduce salt to 1 tsp. I have not tried with dairy free.
STORAGE keep in an air-tight container for 3 days, I suggest keeping a paper towel in the container to help prevent moisture build-up.
CROUTONS Toss with olive oil & sea salt. Bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes until golden. Toss or flip halfway through & make sure they have space on a baking sheet so all sides get toasty.
