Recipe by: littlespicejar.com
Servings: 12 or 16 dinner rolls
6 tablespoons butter, divided
¾ cup whole milk milk (2% will also work)
½ cup water
4 – 4 ½ cups all purpose flour, plus more for dusting
¼ cup instant potato flakes (See note)
1 tablespoon rapid-rise yeast (see note)
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary (use ½ quantity if dry)
3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, divided (use ½ quantity if dry)
1 large egg, room temperature
1-2 cloves garlic, whole or minced (see notes)
- Place 4 tablespoons of butter, milk, and water in a 2 cup microwave-safe measuring cup. Heat on high for 1 minute. The milk mixture should be warm to the touch, about 110-115ºF. Continue to heat in 10-15 second intervals until the milk mixture reaches that temperature. If it’s too hot, just let it cool.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough-hook attachment, add 4 cups of flour, potato flakes, yeast, sugar, salt, garlic, rosemary, and 2 tablespoons of parsley and just stir to combine.
- Start the machine on the ‘stir’ setting and slowly stream in the warm milk mixture and the egg. When combined, increase the speed of the mixer to medium-low and allow the mixer to run for 4-5 minutes. After the first 1-2 minutes the dough should start pulling away from the sides of the bowl, if it doesn’t add an additional ¼ cup of flour and let the mixer run for another minute, if the dough still hasn’t formed into a ball, add the remaining ¼ cup of flour. You may or may not need to add the additional flour. I didn’t.
- Remove the dough from the hook, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes. While the dough is rising, position a rack in the center of the one and preheat the oven to 180ºF. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray, set aside. READ MORE
