Hi everyone! I'm taking a little break from making menus for the next two weeks. I'll be back at it after Mother's Day. Maybe I'll post some new recipes before then (most likely a dessert). Have a good one!
These rolls are amazing! I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me. The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour! And delicious too!
I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them. Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you.
Here's what you'll need.
I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers. You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour.
In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast. Mix together.
After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this. Time to add the salt and beaten egg.
Then mix in the flour. (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.)
Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable. It will be a little sticky, but add enough flour so …
This is the best french bread I've ever made. I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano. I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast. I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it.
We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect! We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway. Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread. Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy!
Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash!
I bought myself an Instant Pot for Christmas. Did you get one too? The sale on Amazon on Black Friday was too good to pass by. I have seen posts of yummy food that has been made in an Instant Pot so I knew that it would be a good investment.
Now that I have one of my own, I am excited to experiment more and more with it. We made some pork tacos, Cafe Rio/Costa Vida style last night with beans, rice, cilantro ranch, homemade salsa and everything else. I whipped up these beans to go with it and they were done (without soaking) in less than an hour. Amazing! I'm excited to stop buying cans of beans and using dry beans.
Feel free to add whatever ingredients you want to flavor your beans. The basic idea is to add 1 part beans to 4 parts water and cook on high pressure for 40 minutes. Easy peasy! And yummy too.
