While my bread recipe is wildly versatile and can be used for sandwich bread, buns, and rolls. I’ve been working on trying to make a recipe that is perfect for dinner rolls. I may have figured it out.

After your first initial dough rise you’ll have to shape your rolls. It’s relatively easy but its a little more complex than making a loaf of bread.

When shaping your rolls you’ll want about a 35g of dough for each roll. (I don’t weigh them though I know many do when making rolls I generally do about a 2.5×2.5 inch little square.) You’ll want to just fold in each little corner of your dough to the center and then place that center facing down into your 9×13 pan. They should look like little young puffy clouds!

You’ll let these rise again for 30 minutes and then bake! They are the perfect addition to soups, meat and potatoes, or even making them into little ham sandwich sliders! If you make these let me know! I know we loved them!

    My these for my preschools thanksgiving feast. They were so easy to make and they smell amazing! Thank you for giving me the courage to ditch store bought bread.
