These are the best dinner rolls you will ever bake. They are ginormous and fluffy, the best dinner rolls ever. You will start by scalding the milk, in a heavy bottom saucepan, add in milk over medium heat and stir until it comes to a simmer then take it off the heat and continues to stir while it cools down. Add warm water in a jar together with yeast and sugar, give it a stir then let it sit for ten minutes until nice and bubbly. Once the yeast is activated, you will start the process immediately.
- ½ Cup (125ml) Whole Milk
- ¾ Cup (150 grams) Granulated Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 4 Tablespoons (56.8 grams) Butter, Melted
- ½ Cup Water, Temperature of 115 Degrees
- 2 Packages Active Dry Yeast
- 2 Large Eggs
- About 4 Cups (480 grams) All-Purpose Flour
- Additional Butter to Top
- In a small saucepan with a heavy bottom, scald milk by just bringing it to a boil while stirring constantly. Remove from heat once it starts to boil and continue to stir to slightly cool it down.
- In a small bowl, combine 2 teaspoons of the sugar, warm water (115 degrees), and yeast. Allow the yeast to proof about 5-10 minutes.
- In the bowl of a standing mixer add proofed yeast, remaining sugar, melted butter, salt, eggs, and the cooled milk. Mix until combined.
- Once combined, add flour in ½ cup increments mixing as you go.
- Keep adding flour until it becomes a ball and is elastic and slightly tacky. Continue kneading for about 5-8 minutes or until smooth.
- Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size. About 1 hour.
- Once doubled, punch the dough down to deflate it. Pinch off about 2 tablespoons of dough and form into a ball and place each roll onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper making sure to not crowd them to close together.
- Cover prepared rolls and allow to rise again for an additional hour.
- Place rolls into a preheated 375-degree oven and bakes for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Brush tops with melted butter when they come out of the oven and enjoy
