1 Hour Dinner Rolls – Easy homemade soft dinner rolls made in 1 hour. Made from scratch and perfect for the holidays.
I’m thrilled to share these delicious one-hour dinner rolls with you today. In approximately 1 hour of your time, you can have homemade dinner rolls on your table. Now if you have any experience shaping dough that will cut some time off. If you’re new to this, it will probably take you more than an hour. Because rolling the dough does take a bit to get used to.
Before you know it, you’ll be a pro. Whipping, rolling, shaping dough in a jiffy.
This process is fairly simple you’ll be combining ingredients like yeast, water, butter, flour, an egg and a smidge of salt and sugar. Don’t you love that ingredient list versus the one you’ll see on the ingredients list of the dinner rolls at the local grocery store?
Most of all, I get it! We don’t have time to make homemade everything. I understand fully. I’m a working mom of 3 who loves to bake with yeast and even I can’t find time to make everything from scratch.
But at least once you MUST make 1 hour dinner rolls. They’re just outrageously good. And can’t even compare with the package you’ll pick up on the bread aisle.
So, why not give it a go for this holiday? Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter? Let’s put real food on the table for the ones we love! The thankfulness will come in smiles, hugs, and pats of butter melting on warm oven dinner rolls.
Til we meet and eat again,

Roll each piece into a smooth round ball. Use the palm of your hand to roll gently until it pulls together.
Arrange dough balls in a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan and cover with a kitchen towel. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Let rolls rise until doubled, about 20 minutes. Brush with melted butter.
