So incredibly easy to make and wonderfully delicious, these 30-Minute Dinner Rolls are the perfect addition to any meal!

There is truly no smell as amazing as fresh warm bread or rolls coming out of the oven! I remember coming home from school to the smell of freshly baked buns or bread, ready and waiting as the perfect after school snack! To this day when I smell fresh baking, I am immediately transported to that happy time and place of my childhood.

Fast forward to today with busy work schedules, running to kids activities and trying to simply keep up with life, it is difficult to put together a meal – let alone add on the extras!

This 30-Minute Dinner Roll recipe is wonderful because it is truly so easy to prepare, the buns take a short time to rise and the result is such a delicious treat that it is worth the extra effort! What a great side to enjoy with a hot and tasty bowl of soup or chili!

 

So incredibly tasty and easy, these 30-Minute Dinner Rolls are the perfect addition to any meal!

 

I love the convenience of buying dinner rolls from the store and the quality is very nice. In most cases however, store bought items have additives or preservatives in order to keep a longer shelf life. Making these homemade dinner rolls from scratch ensures that nothing is added except wholesome goodness! And these tasty little buns never last long enough to have to worry about shelf life!

If you are lucky enough to have any left over the next day, they do stay fresh and are so wonderful served with butter and jam in the morning! I love to enjoy this special treat with my morning coffee – it is comfort food at it’s best!

Our sense of smell is one of the most highly acute of all our senses and tends to influence our mood. It is no small wonder that when we smell freshly baked dinner rolls, it makes us feel happy and excited in anticipation of these tender, tasty treats!

  9. Can u freeze the dough before u bake them for later use?

  10. What is the benefit of brushing with milk?

  11. can i us self rise

  12. Have you tried this with gluten-free flour? I’m looking for a good GF roll recipe for Christmas. Thanks!

  13. how much freash yeast (in grams) because 2 tbsp sounds foreign to me. i live in denmark where we have freash packs of 50 gram yeast and regular dry (12g)

  14. This recipe is awesome. I made it last night, even though some of the ingredients were things I didn’t have on-hand. I used only water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, and flour. They came out fantastic!! I watched them rise as I chopped the veggies for the soup, and when we sat down to eat I couldn’t believe how soft, fluffy, and delicious they were. I will definitely make these again.

  17. Has anyone made these with part white whole wheat flour?  Did they turn out soft and nice?

  18. Made these dinner rolls this afternoon. Used 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour and 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill 100 Whole Wheat Ivory Wheat flour in the recipe. Very light and fluffy!

  19. Unbelievable!. I didn’t think it would work.. It’s delicious. I halved the oil and butter and yeast but let it raise 30 mins. And cooked it 15 mins.
