90 Minute Rolls

I made these delicious rolls with our cheesy potato soup the other night and it absolutely hit the spot. You just can't beat the taste or the smell of homemade bread especially when it will only take 90 minutes to make! Come on... do it! You know you want to!

1/2 cup. warm water
2 T. yeast
2 T. sugar

Add 1st 3 ingredients together and let sit 20 minutes (until the yeast has activated- The yeasty water will be bubbly)

Combine with 1 c. scalded milk
2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. salad oil (I use my vegetable oil)
1/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
4-5 cups flour

Add 1 cup flour at a time. Knead and let rise in a warm area for 1/2 hr. Roll into balls (or in my case, I put them in a mini-loaf pan) and let rise for another 1/2 hr. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes. Seriously yummy... Go ahead and try them- They are so delicious and so fast for rolls!

Tips: I scald my milk in the microwave and then let it set and cool. I don't add it to the yeast mixture before it has cooled off because I don't want it to "kill" my yeast.

For smaller portions: I always halve this recipe when I am just cooking for our family of three... I think it still made 8 mini loaves with a half recipe.

I love making bread. This is a great recipe. Like you, the microwave is my friend. I just started using SAF instant yeast. Pretty cook stuff, because you just add it to your dry ingredients and keep on going!
