1 Hour Dinner Rolls

These rolls are great if you decide  that you want rolls at the last minute! When you suddenly hear that company is coming unexpectedly, they're a great go-to! Plus - they're tasty! 

  • 4 teaspoons yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (I use brown sugar)
  • 1 ¼ cups warm water
Step 1. Mix the three above ingredients in a large bowl, let sit for five minutes. While this mixture sits, brush a glass 9x13 inch baking dish with butter. Take out the remaining ingredients.
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
Step 2. Quickly stir the olive oil, salt, egg, and flour into the yeast mixture. Knead for a couple minutes. Allow yourself five minutes for this step.

Step 3. Shape the dough into 12 balls and place into the prepared baking dish. Try to do this in five minutes.

Step 4. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Let the rolls rise for 20 minutes. Near the end of rising time, brush the rolls with melted butter.

Step 5. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Now the math: 
Step 1 - 5 minutes
Step 2 - 5 minutes
Step 3 - 5 minutes
Step 4 - 20 minutes
Step 5 - 20 minutes
= 55 minutes
Which gives you 5 extra minutes in case there are any delays!
