Soft Dinner Rolls with Garlic Butter

by Milisa on July 10, 2012

Over the weekend I manage to completely wipe Miss in the Kitchen right off of the internets.  I had been getting messages from readers that my site was being attacked by malware.  I checked my site on google and it said it was safe.  Then I saw some other bloggers saying that they were having the same issue and that it was coming from an ad network.

I decided to remove the ads, except I removed the whole site.  I didn’t panic, I’ve messed it all up before but this time I couldn’t fix it.  I got some help and had it back up and running by Monday afternoon.  No more malware attacking ads, yay! That’s not the best start to a week but I seem to think every Monday is the longest day ever.

Now what can make even the worst day ever a little better? Homemade bread.  Don’t you agree?

Sundays are my favorite day for making bread.  I can start the dough and do a few other things while it rises and then we have wonderful homemade bread with supper.  Nothing makes the house smell better than homemade bread.

I made these on Father’s Day and brushed the baked rolls with a nice slathering of garlic butter.  They are really soft and tender and quite possibly the best rolls I have ever made. (Do I say that every time I make bread? It’s possible.)

My picky eater was really bragging on them and said, “Wow, you really made these? Good job Mom.”  He speaks in grunts and whistles for the most part so I really took it as a compliment.

What food can turn a bad day into a good one for you?

Soft Dinner Rolls with Garlic Butter


for rolls:

  • 2 cups warm milk (about 96-100° F)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 5-6 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

for garlic butter:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 garlic cloves minced

Cooking Directions:

In a large bowl, combine milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved.  Stir in yeast.  Set aside for 5 minutes. When yeast starts to bubble stir in butter and eggs.

Add 2 cups of flour and stir well.  Add salt and continue adding flour 1 cup at a time until dough comes together and pulls away from sides of the bowl.

Pour onto a lightly floured surface and knead 2 minutes, adding flour about 2 tablespoons at a time as needed.  Allow dough to rest 2 minutes, now is a good time to wash, dry and grease your bowl.

Continue kneading dough 3 minutes or until dough is no longer sticky, adding flour as needed.

Place dough into greased bowl and cover with a flour sack towel and set in a warm place to rise.  Allow dough to double in size, about 30 minutes to an hour.

Punch dough down and shape into rolls.  Place in greased baking pans, cover and allow to rise about 20 minutes.

I used 3 cake pans for mine and made 24 rolls.  You can use a sheet cake pan or a couple 9 x 13 pans, whatever works for you.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.

While rolls are baking, melt 1/4 cup butter and garlic cloves in a small pan, cook over low heat 5 minutes, stirring often.

Remove rolls from oven and brush with garlic butter.

Serve immediately.  Store remaining rolls that have cooled in an airtight container.

Sorry to hear about your malware malady, Milisa — looks like your blog is up and running well. (I was away from home for a couple of weeks, so I missed the whole thing!) I agree — bread makes anything better. Your rolls look very, verrrrrrry tempting!
