Everyday Mom's Meals: It's A Must

It's A Must

I have told you before how some type of bread is almost always included in our dinner. From rolls to garlic bread to simple sandwich bread, the bread portion of our meal is kind of like an extra utensil! And this does not end on the holidays! I remember a couple years ago when my mom was going over our Christmas Day menu with my dad. He asked "What about rolls?" She explained to him she didn't think we needed them with everything else we were having, and how the past couple years she made them and there were many leftover. His answer was "Yeah, so. We have to have them; and if there are leftovers, I will eat those too." Seriously, you would have thought Santa himself had cancelled Christmas with his level of disappointment!  So, needless to say, there were indeed rolls on the Christmas table that year, and every year since! Mom would never even consider omitting them after that reaction! So, if your family is like ours and need those extra holiday carbs (Diets are for the new year!), these easy rolls might be just the answer. Right from the oven, warm with a little butter...mmm...mmm...good! And if you are having a buffet style meal, they are great made ahead and either served room temperature, or rewarmed closer to dinner. Whatever you are serving for your holiday meal, be sure to include rolls or bread of some sort. You never know who is going to show up...and if it's my dad...watch out if you don't!

Easy Yeast Rolls
1 c. warm water
1 pkg. yeast
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/3 c. oil
3 c. flour

Combine first 4 ingredients. Blend egg and oil and add to first mixture. Mix well. Add flour. Mix well. Place in a greased bowl, and cover with greased plastic wrap. Allow to rise in a warm place 1.5-2 hours until doubled in size. Empty dough onto a well floured surface. Knead well. Pinch off about 2 inch portions and roll into balls. Place in a well oiled 9x13 pan . Cover with greased plastic wrap. Allow to double in size. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Makes 16-20 rolls (You will probably have to make more than one batch if using a 9x13 pan.)

This looks like an easy recipe! I'm supposed to bring rolls to a family gathering, maybe I'll try these instead of my usual recipe.
