I baked these for our Thanksgiving meal. It was a last minute decision to bake these as I totally forgot to get a loaf of bread for our meal. Well, since I am not roasting a turkey but chicken I have plenty of time to make the rolls. It is not that difficult to make and with very few simple ingredients you some fresh rolls to go with your meal.
Ingredients for the bread:
1 ¾ cups flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp dried yeast
¾ cups lukewarm milk – around 105-110 degree F
2 tbsp butter – room temperature
Ingredients for the topping:
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic – finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped parsley
Some sea salt
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine flour, sugar, salt and dried yeast. Mix really well. Add in the warm milk and mix until ingredients until it form into a ball.
2. Switch to the dough hook, add in the butter and knead on low speed until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl, turn once to coat, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise until double in size.
3. Turn out the dough onto a work counter, punch out the air. Divide the dough into 8-10 equal pieces or (depend on the size you like). Roll each piece into a round ball put it on a line baking sheet.
4. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and set it aside to rise for about 15 - 20 minutes. In the meantime prepare the garlic herb. Heat up a small frying pan over medium; add in the olive oil and garlic. Once you can smell the fragrant of the garlic add in the chopped parsley. Continue to stir for 30 second and remove from heat and set it aside.
5. Heat up the oven to 375 degree F. Baked the rolls for 12-15 or until brown. Remove from oven and brush the garlic and parsley oil all over it. Sprinkle on some sea salt.
6. Serve warm.
