30 Minute Yeast Rolls

Ever since I got pregnant, I have been all about the carbs. I’m not really sure what it is, but things like bread, crackers, waffles, pancakes, rolls – anything bready and carb-loaded – has been so satisfying lately. 

While I have been giving into my cravings, I dislike giving in when it’s not a healthy version of it. The other night when I was making dinner, I thought rolls would be a great addition to really round out the meal and satisfy my all-thing-bread-obsessed self. 

30 Minute Yeast Rolls - Makes 6 rolls. Perfect for dinner with simple ingredients!

I wouldn’t say these rolls are super healthy, but they at least aren’t from a can or full of preservatives. I know what’s in them, and that’s good enough for me. 

I’m also really into recipes lately that only make as much as I need at a given time. I love baking, but I do not like having 12 muffins around for just me and my husband. I wanted to make these rolls but knew if there were 12, I would easily eat half of them! 

This recipe only makes 6 good sized rolls, which is nice for just the two of us. The recipe can easily be doubled though to accommodate more mouths.

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 yeast packet
  3. 1/2 of a 1/3 of a cup vegetable oil
  4. 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  5. 1 egg
  6. 1/2 tsp. salt (or more to taste)
  7. 1/2 cup warm water
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the water, yeast packet, sugar and oil in a bowl. Let sit for a few minutes to activate yeast
  3. Add salt and egg.
  4. Add flour one cup at a time, mixing well before adding the next. You know you have enough flour when the dough doesn't stick to the sides of the bowl. Flour amount may vary a little, so don't worry about throwing in more or less.
  5. Form dough into 6 balls. Place on cookie sheet and let rise for 5-10 minutes if you have time. If not, you can just throw in the oven right away and they'll be fine.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the tops are browned.
  1. These are great with butter and honey on top or apple butter.

We had these rolls with Parmesan garlic chicken, sweet potato, and broccoli with cheese. It was a nice addition to round out the meal. 

Yeast rolls with apple butter

We may have eaten all the rolls but one between the two of us :) They were a big hit!

Graze Box Review

14 week bump

Today actually marks the end of my first trimester, as I am 14 weeks today! It’s really crazy how these 3 months have flown by but also seemed like such a long time to wait to tell everyone!  I found out I was pregnant at the beginning of August, at 4 weeks. The first few weeks were […]
