Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

With Thanksgiving Day coming and the winter holiday's coming up fast I thought I would share with you a nice healthy way to make some tasty dinner rolls.

I know most of us have our menu planned out with the turkey's and all the trimmings and we are not watching what we are eating, all the rich foods and gravies being passed around......I can understand because I'm going to be stuffing my face as well, but I think you can still add a little bit of healthy into your meal by making some whole wheat dinner rolls.

To me there is nothing better than homemade bread in any form especially dinner rolls and these are really simple to prepare ....and the best part you don't have to knead these rolls because there nothing better than home style look to go along with the good taste.

''Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls''


1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 0.25 ounces active dry yeast
  • 1 1/3 cup warm milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 11/3 cup all-purpose flour


To get things started make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature, the milk should be Luke warm, Add your whole wheat flour, sugar, salt and yeast into a large glass bowl and stir well then combine your butter, large egg and milk and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth.

Now slowly add your all purpose flour mix until fully blended together and your mixture is smooth then cover the bowl then let the dough sit in a warm place to rise for about a hour by that time your dough will double in size. While your dough is rising grease a 12 slot muffin pan with extra virgin olive oil and set aside. Now very easy stir the dough a little to let out the air that's in the dough then spoon in even amounts of dough into each muffin pan and place it back in your warm spot and wait for the dough rise just a little bit over the muffin pan that will be about a hour more but trust me it is worth the wait. Preheat the oven at 400 degrees and bake the rolls 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

if you have not notice i ask that you use a glass bowl and a wooden spoon while making your dough that's because some times I find that the active yeast and metal pans changes the texture of the dough but when it rises and your ready to add them to your muffin pan you can use a medal spoon to add them to the muffin pan so try and enjoy.....Happy Eating.

      I'm ready to try your recipe, chef. Nothing better than making bread when the weather turns cold! My grandma used to dip the dough pieces for her cloverleaf rolls in melted butter before she put them in the muffin pans. What do you think of that? --Jill
