Tasty Tuesday

Today is The Man of the House's Birthday.  I will be making one of his favorite dinners.  Meatloaf, buttered potatoes, corn, and green beans.  And I am going to try these dinner rolls from scratch.  I will let you know how they turn out!
Found at


  • 3 3/4 cups bread flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package rapid rise yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (120 to 130 degrees F/50 degrees C)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups flour, sugar, shortening, salt and yeast. Add water, milk and egg. Beat with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently. Add the remaining flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until the dough comes together.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Place in greased bowl and turn greased side up. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Dough is ready if indention remains when touched.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half; cut each half into 24 pieces. Form the pieces into rounds. Place the rolls close together in two lightly greased 9 inch round cake pans. Brush with melted butter. Cover and let rise in warm place about 30 minutes or until doubled. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 18 minutes, until golden brown.

I think I can smell those rolls baking right now! Can't think of too many smells better than homemade bread (unless of course it's a newborn baby; that's the best smell in the world!).

Oh, and, Happy Birthday to the Man of the House (or is he the King of the Castle today?)!
