These easy homemade dinner rolls are ready in just about 30 minutes! They will become one of your favorite quick and easy recipes.
Happy Fall, ya’ll! Now that you’re bringing soups, stews and other fabulous slow cooker meals back to the dinner table, it’s time for some delicious (and easy) sides to accompany those dishes. These Garlic Herb Rolls are so quick to make–just about 30 minutes–and add a great Italian flavor to whatever you’re serving. These little rolls are hearty and taste absolutely amazing warm from the oven!
If you’re a bread baker, you’ll gawk at the amount of yeast in this recipe, but it’s there to allow rising to happen in such a short time. They won’t taste too yeasty–trust me! Just let that yeast sit for 15 minutes before adding your dry ingredients, then let them rise again before they head into the oven. It’s a tried-and-true recipe that my family has enjoyed for years.
This recipe is adapted from the 30 Minute Dinner Rolls recipe from A Few Short Cuts. Over the years, we’ve added a lot of spices to that basic recipe to make it one of our favorite sides to go along with soups, stews and more. Don’t have a stand mixer? Neither do I! I just use a rubber spatula to mix this yeasty dough, and it always comes out great. These rolls taste fabulous next to some of my favorite crockpot and stovetop recipes: Slow Cooker Beef Stew, Tuscan Chicken Soup, and Sausage Lentil Soup.
There’s just something special about homemade bread. Even on nights when I’m not cooking and we’re having a convenience meal (frozen lasagna, anyone?), these are easy enough to whip up to add a little homemade and heart to our dinner.
