I usually make Potato Rolls. We just love that recipe so much. The only problem is they take longer. If we ever are in a little more of a hurry we will make these One Hour Rolls. Still light, still fluffy, still delicious and they only take an hour!
Our girls really don’t care which rolls are made, all they care about is slathering homemade strawberry or raspberry jam all over them. I kind of agree. Rolls are amazing but you add that homemade jam and they are all kinds of lovely.
Rolls are becoming a Sunday staple but even more so a holiday staple. We could never have a Mother’s Day meal without them. Even when carne asada tacos are on the menu I’m tempted to request rolls as well. And yes, request not make. I totally do not make my own dinner. Even if Cade only made waffles I’d be a happy lady.
Can You Use Dinner Rolls for Sliders?
Dinner rolls are the perfect size and texture to use for sliders.
How Long Will Dinner Rolls Stay Fresh?
Rolls should keep well at room temperature for 6-7 days.
Make sure they are wrapped in plastic or in an airtight bag or container.
You can freeze rolls for up to six months.
How Can You Tell if Your Yeast is Good?
Dissolve 1 teaspoon of sugar in 1/2 cup warm water.
Sprinkle with one packet of active dry yeast.
Stir and let stand for about 10 minutes.
After 3-4 minutes the yeast should begin to rise to the surface.
After 10 minutes the yeast should form a foamy layer on the surface.
If no foam forms, the yeast is no longer good.
