A few weeks ago, I found a great breakfast rolls recipe that is super simple to make, uses few ingredients and tastes really good. I usually make a half a batch because there is only of me. I also give my neighbor one because he gently teases me at work and I get back by cooking food that makes him drool all over the place.......LOL.
I got the recipe from one of my cookbooks and I really enjoy them because they are not sweet. I often toast them and smear them with cream cheese, or add slices of cheese to make a sandwich lunch. I've even had them with fresh hot soup. These rolls are extremely versatile.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 tsp of yeast
1 tsp salt
4 cups of flour
Mix the milk and water together. Add in the yeast and salt. Add in 3 to 3 1/2 cups of flour, mixing it till its rather stiff. Place on floured board and knead. If the dough is sticky, knead in the remaining flour until its no longer sticky. Place it in an oiled bowl and cover with a towel. Let sit a few hours. till its risen. Take the dough out of the bowl, knead it a bit, then break into 8 equal pieces. Shape the pieces into roll like shapes about 2.5 inches by 1 inch. Place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper or is nonstick. Slide the cookie sheet in the refrigerator over night or for several hours. When you pull the rolls out, let them sit for 20 minutes. Cut a lengthwise slit in the dough, finish with brushing a bit of milk over all the rolls before baking at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes to 20 minutes. When done, pull out and cool a bit before eating.
I usually start them around dinner time, get them shaped just before I go to bed, and bake them first thing in the morning when I get up. I love the fresh rolls dripping in butter for breakfast. The cool thing is that you can heat them up in the oven or microwave. Although they are best the day they are baked, I've been known to freeze a few for later in the week. I thaw them the night before, heat them and voila a great breakfast.
I hope you get a chance to try the rolls. I adore them and make them on Friday night usually so I have rolls for the weekend. Yum, yum, yum. Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear. Have a great day.
