We are going to be making the most delicious one hour dinner rolls recipe of your life today. Like, you-didn’t-even-know-these-were-missing-from-your-life-till-you’ve-had-these good.
For someone who often complains about not liking potatoes, I have managed to use them a LOT lately, haven’t I? Like this , this , and this . And now, i’ve snuck them into these dinner rolls. But trust me, potatoes flakes are the key to make making tender and delicious dinner rolls that practically prepare themselves in 1 hour.
The husband, who isn’t a carbaholic, the way I am, said these were the most delicious rolls he’s ever had. They taste really similar to my homemade hawaiian rolls , but dare I say, better? They definitely aren’t as sweet as the Hawaiian Rolls but are just as tender (if not more).
Bread + potatoes? What’s not to LOVE?
I mix up the wet ingredients in a 2-cup measuring cup. That’s just milk, water, and butter. Pop it in the microwave for about 1 minute. You want the milk and water to warm and the butter to *just* begin melting. For those of us that like to be exact, you want to warm it to 115ºF.
Now for the dry ingredients, combine the flour, instant potato flakes, rapid-rise year, sugar, and salt in the bowl on an electric mixer. Fit your mixture with the dough-hook attachment.
Once you’ve heated the milk mixture, stream it into the dry ingredients while the mixer is on the low setting. Crack an egg and pop it in. Once the liquid is all mixed in, bring the mixer speed up to low medium and let it run for 4-5 minutes. Your dough should be *slightly* sticky. If it looks super sticky, add in ¼ cup of flour. Let it run, if it’s still too sticky, add the remaining ¼ cup.
Now, cover the dough bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for 10 minutes. Heat your oven to 180ºF while the dough is resting.
On a floured work surface, roll out the dough into a 15 inch circle. Using a pizza cutter (dipped in flour) divide the dough into 12 pieces. Cut it just the way you’d cut a pizza. Roll the balls up, tucking the seams inside the dough. Place the prepared dough onto a lightly greased 9×13 baking dish.
Brush a little water on the top so they don’t dry out in the oven and pop them in for 20 minutes. Turn the oven *OFF* and allow them to do a second rise.
When the second rise is done, pull the dish out of the oven and let the rolls sit on the counter while the oven heats to 375ºF. Pop them into the oven and let them bake for 18-22 minutes until tender and delicious. If the tops start browning early in the game, just place a piece of foil on top no need to fold it or anything.
When they’re fresh out of the oven, give them a brushing with some melted butter.
Your holiday guests are going to be amazed when you pull these one hour dinner rolls out of ze oven. You can’t even tell these rolls were made in ze one hour. They taste like something straight from ze fancy bakery.
Friendsgiving? Thanksgiving? Christmas? You’re set on these one hour dinner rolls. And your guests are going to LOVE them.
