I’ve long been a fan of my bread maker. It takes all the work out of bread and pizza dough, and turns out a consistent product every time. BUT, it takes an hour and a half to be ready to pull out and shape/bake – and then needs to be given more time to rise…. and I needed them (and dinner) to be ready in 45 minutes.
Could I have run to the store? Sure. But WHY? When I can make these little beauties from scratch (and now, so can you!!)
These are great for holidays, weeknights, basically – any time you need them.

30 minute dinner rolls – the flavor
If you are worried that they’ll be overwhelmingly yeast-y tasting (2 Tbs yeast sounds like a lot), stop worrying – they’re not! These are tender-soft, and and absolutely divine.
You need these in your life. Go, make a batch. Please.

30 Minute Dinner Rolls
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water not boiling hot - warm
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 Tbs active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 3 1/2 cups bread flour all-purpose will also work
- In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the warm water, oil, yeast, and sugar.
- Allow to rest for 10 minutes (the yeast should bloom, and the mixture will look "puffy")
- Add 2 cups of the flour, the salt, and the egg into the yeast mixture using a dough hook, and mix.
- Add the remaining flour gradually.
- Let your mixer do the work and let it knead it all together until it becomes smooth ball. The dough will be fairly soft.
- Shape dough into 12 balls and place in a 9x13 pan.
- Let dough rest for 10 minutes, and heat your oven to 400F.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until tops are just golden brown.
- Remove from oven, and brush tops with butter.
