Quick and Easy Dinner Rolls

  • 15m
  • 10m
  • 1h
  • 1 batch


  • 1 c water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c extra virgin olive oil, plus more for greasing
  • 1/4 c butter, optional
  • 1/4 c cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp. active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 3 1/2 c flour, plus more as needed


  1. Warm water until it just starts to steam, but do not boil. Beat egg and set aside. Grease 9x13 baking dish with olive oil. Melt butter and set aside.
  2. Add water, oil, sugar, and yeast to bowl of stand mixer. Give a quick stir and let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Once yeast has bloomed, add egg, salt, and 1/2 of the flour. Using dough hook, mix until flour is incorporated. Add other half of flour and knead with dough hook until dough comes together in a ball. Dough should be soft but only slightly sticky. If dough is too sticky, gradually add up to 1/2 cup more flour until dough is soft and smooth.
  4. If you do not have a stand mixer, mix flour in, using a wooden spoon, until fully incorporated. Turn dough out on a floured surface and knead until soft, smooth, and only slightly sticky, about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Turn dough out on lightly floured surface and knead a few times to make sure flour is all incorporated.
  6. Divide dough into 4 sections and then divide each section into thirds. Form balls with the dough by pulling all sides down and "tucking" ends into bottom. It should form a nice, smooth top.
  7. Place rolls in greased baking dish and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Allow to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. An oven preheated to lowest temperature then turned off again will work well in a cool kitchen.
  8. Preheat oven to 400F.
  9. Bake on middle rack of oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  10. Brush hot rolls with melted butter and enjoy!
