Classic Dinner Rolls

It’s SRC reveal day! I can’t wait to see what everyone in Group D has made this month. I know I have some tasty vittles to reveal, myself.

For those that don’t know, SRC (Secret Recipe Club) is a group of extremely talented bloggers, chefs, and food-thousiasts like myself. Once a month, we sign up to participate and once a month we’re assigned a fellow blogger in our group. Once we have found and created or re-created a recipe on the blog we are assigned, we create a post telling everyone about our assigned blogger, their blog, and the chosen recipe on our specified group reveal date. I’m not explaining it all that well. So, you’d better head on over to their website and read about it yourself. It’s awesome and I’ve found some really wonderful blogs to follow and be inspired by.

This month, I was assigned the amazing blog Bewitching Kitchen. O.M.G. Sally’s bread bio alone is enough to make me drool! And I can see why. Her and the hubs are biochemists. Yeah. Makes sense. Bread is biochemistry in and of itself! People sometimes forget that baking truly is a science, whether it’s bread or cupcakes.

But back to Sally’s blog. She has an amazing repertoire of recipes! My eyes eventually glazed over and I really had difficulty picking just one! I save about 8? No, make it 10. Though I was thoroughly tempted to make the caiprinhas and the pasteis. Then there was the sourdough crumpets, but failed to find rings.

Then I found it. The perfect dinner roll recipe. I’ve always been looking for a quick and easy dinner roll recipe and I have to say, this is the one. Classic Dinner Rolls. I’m not really a Seinfeld fan, but these sounded quick, easy, and delicious. They looked soft and moist and screamed, “Slather me with butter!” So, I did. *snicker*

I honestly toyed with changing it up and AKHA-izing the recipe, but this time, I just didn’t. I thought about stuffing them, adding cheese and ham. We’re having Chicken Cordon Blue Skillet Pasta so the cheese and ham makes more sense now, doesn’t it? Even Missy wanted to get in on that fluffy, tasty action! She’s as much a bread hoor as I am a kitchen hoor.

I can’t stress how easy these rolls are. Seriously. The hardest part was waiting for them to rise. You throw the dry ingredients in the stand mixer. Heat the milk and butter together, then let the stand mixer do all the work. Yes, they’re that simple.

I made one adjustment. I added 1/4 cup egg substitute instead of three egg yolks. We’re a bit lower cholesterol in this house, so I felt I needed to make that change, but they were still fluffy and crazy delicious!

Classic Dinner Rolls

These Classic Dinner Rolls are soft, simpler, and easily to make for any dinner. You can make them ahead of time, freeze, and then pop them into the oven to have for dinner.


  • 18 ounces (4 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid-rise yeast
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fat free milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 2 tablespoons egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoons fat free half and half


  1. Place the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in the bowl of your KitchenAid type mixer, mix to combine. Put the bowl in the mixer stand and fit it with the dough hook.
  2. Heat the milk and butter in a small saucepan, stirring gently until the butter melts, and the temperature reaches 115F to 125F. Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients in the bowl, add the egg yolks, and mix with the dough hook in low speed until everything forms a shaggy mass. Increase the speed to medium high and mix/knead for about 8 minutes.
  3. Remove the dough from the bowl, shape it into a ball, grease the bowl lightly with oil, and place the dough back inside, covering with plastic wrap. Let it rise until doubled in size (45 minutes if using rapid-rise yeast, a little longer for other types of yeast).
  4. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish. Turn the dough onto a clean work surface (no need to flour; the dough is soft but not sticky) and gently press to deflate. Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces, form each into a ball, and place in the pan, with the seam side down.
  5. Cover the pan with plastic and let the dough rise until almost doubled, about 30 min. Meanwhile, heat the oven to 375°F. Remove the plastic and bake the rolls until they’re puffed and browned, about 20 min. Serve warm.
