Garlic & Herb-Infused Dinner Rolls:
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Serving Size: 12-16 rolls
4 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp infused butter
3/4 cup plant-based milk (almond, cashew, hemp, etc…)
4 - 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (plus more for dusting)
1 Tbsp rapid-rise yeast
1/4 cup cane sugar
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp fresh chopped rosemary (or 1/2 Tbsp dry)
3 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley (or 1 1/2 Tbsp dry)
1 large egg
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
Place 2 Tbsp of butter, 2 Tbsp infused butter, milk, and water in a small microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high for 1 minute. The milk mixture should be warm to the touch. Continue to heat in 10-15 second intervals until the milk mixture reaches about 110-115ºF. Set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, add 4 cups of flour, potato flakes, yeast, sugar, salt, garlic powder, rosemary, and 2 Tbsp of parsley. Stir to combine.
Using a hand-held mixer, beat the mixture while slowly adding in the warm milk and the egg. When well-combined, increase the speed of the mixer to medium-low; allow to run for 4-5 minutes.
After about 1-2 minutes, the dough should begin to pull away from the side of the bowl. If it doesn’t, add an extra 1/4 cup of flour. After 1-2 minutes, if the dough still doesn’t form into a ball, add the remaining 1/4 cup of flour.
Remove the dough from the bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow to rest in a warm, dark area for 10 minutes. While the dough rises, preheat the oven to 180 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.
Once the dough has risen, turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 15-inch circle. Cut the dough into 12 or 16 equal pieces. Fold the seams in and roll into a smooth ball. Place the dough seam side down in a baking dish greased with infused butter (or non-infused butter). Repeat with the remaining dough.
Brush water onto the tops of the rolls so they don’t dry out. Next, turn the oven off and allow the rolls to proof for an additional 20 minutes. Do not open the oven door until the 20 minutes are up.
Next, place the pan on the counter as you preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Bake the rolls for 18-22 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. While they bake, prepare the garlic butter…
Prepare the garlic butter by combining the garlic and butter of choice (you may use infused or non-infused) in a small saucepan, over medium heat. When the butter melts and the garlic begins to turn golden brown, add the chopped parsley, pinch of salt, and stir. Brush the tops of the rolls with the garlic butter mixture as soon as they are done baking.
Serve warm and enjoy!
