The fastest and yummiest dinner bread ever! These Rapid Rolls are sure to be a family favorite.
Quick + Delicious
The process of working with yeast dough, the comforting smells that drift from the oven, and the unmatched taste and texture of homemade bread are enough to make me want to run home and bake a loaf immediately. And with this super-fast recipe, I always can—even when I haven’t planned ahead and have only about a half an hour until dinner. In fact, because of the ease of this rapid rolls recipe, my sister-in-law Betsy, a busy mom to six darling kids, makes fresh bread for her family on a regular basis – lucky ducks!
Get Fancy with your Rapid Rolls
When you are ready to bake, have some fun with shaping the dough. My go-to method for making dinner rolls is to form the dough into a ball, then cup my palm, and roll the dough in a quick circular motion in my hand until a small knot is formed on the bottom of the ball. Then I place each roll knot side down for baking.
If you want something a little less traditional, consider tying the dough into knots, or even braiding it! You can also stick a few smaller balls together in a loaf pan to simulate pull-apart bread. Snipping the tops of your rolls or loaves with scissors or slashing with a sharp knife adds a decorative element. Such a fun and easy way to switch up your rapid rolls!Print
