This recipe is versatile and can be used as bread or rolls. This is a relatively easy recipe for making your own homemade bread. The best thing about making them yourself is that you can make them into whatever you wish. Perfect with a bowl of soup or even as a bread bowl. Make larger and use them as hamburger buns or form them into hot dog buns. These are slightly sweet and every time I make this it disappears fast!
This recipe is fairly simple and easy to make even if you are new to making homemade bread. I let the dough rise at least 45 minutes or until doubled in size, then only about 20 more minutes after the dough is shaped. You can easily make the dough ahead of time and pop it in the oven right before you are ready for dinner. Nothing smells and tastes better than fresh homemade bread right out of the oven.
Don’t be intimidated if you haven’t tried making bread before, this is pretty easy! You just may surprise yourself! I use a pizza stone, and buy active dry yeast.
Always knead the dough on a floured surface with floured hands. When initially adding flour, add a small amount at a time until the dough is workable. This will help keep it soft, if too sticky you can add a little while kneading.
Making these rolls or any kind of bread it usually takes a few times to get them exactly how you like them. It only gets easier with practice. Once you switch from store-bought or refrigerated to homemade…it’s hard to argue that fresh isn’t best.
