30 Minute Dinner Rolls

I know everyone is in a hurry these days and homemade meals are not as common as they use to be… But that’s why I’m here!  I’m here to share with all of you that it can be done… you don’t need to buy pre-made (that’s probably full of preservatives and cost 2-3 times more than doing it yourself)… I came across these 30 Minute Rolls at Kitchen Meets Girl when looking for a rolls recipe that doesn’t take hours to make (like my Homemade Dinner Rolls)  I make my 20 Minute Biscuits quite often around here… So another bread recipe that’s quick and easy would be a great change up!

When I came across this roll recipe that could be done in 30 minutes I defiantly was second guessing it… thinking is this true?  Homemade dinner rolls in 30 minutes?  Well there wasn’t much else to do but to try it out!  The family was my “guinea pigs” like they always are!  At least one new recipe a week gets tossed at them… so they are used to it!

Well just off my Husbands reaction they were a hit!!  He even told me he liked these more than my Homemade Dinner Rolls!  Not only what he said confirm this was a hit recipe… but the fact that he had 4 of them at dinner that night helped!

I have to say that I didn’t change any of the ingredients but I did swap up the way that it was put together… I stuck to my roots of bread knowledge and decided to put it together the way I would with making any bread recipe.  So here it is my tutorial of the 30 Minute Dinner Rolls!

  1. Homemade everything is just so much better! All I did was slice up sweet potatoes last night to make fried and my boyfriend was so impressed and said they were better than the ones at the store. I will have to make these rolls for him next!

  2. My mom used to make dinner rolls like this all the time. They are sooooo good! I love that your version is ready in just 30 minutes.

  3. these look delicious! ( i love the thumbs-up in the last photo!!) i am tempted to try them gluten free and see if the short rising time still works… doubt it but it’s worth a shot!

  4. I just came across this recipe tonight and had to make them. It really does only take 30 minutes and they could not have been easier to make. I will never buy store bought rolls again. These were so much better. 🙂

    • me again, I tried the “reblog this” link and something didn’t happen 🙁 I’m going to add your blog addy to mine as one I follow. I’ll be here a lot, thanks.

  5. Looks fantastic! A question though – I have packets of yeast. How do I change your 2 TBSP of yeast to packets?

  6. Can these be frozen before you cook them, like after they rise? Or would I be able to freeze then after they’ve cooked? Also I love your french bread recipe!
