Skillet Dinner Rolls Recipe
Skillet Dinner Rolls - easiest and best homemade dinner rolls on skillet. Much better than store-bought and takes 60 minutes!
- 2 packets active dry yeast, total 1/2 oz or 14 g + 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
- 4 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 large egg
- baking spray
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
Dissolve the yeast with the sugar in warm water. Heat the milk with the sugar, salt, butter until lukewarm.
Add the egg to the yeast mixture. Combine the yeast mixture, the milk mixture, and all of the flour. Stir to combine well. Cover the dough and rest for 15 minutes. Using a stand mixer with a dough hook, knead the dough for 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375F.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough and and divide it into 18 balls, about the size a small tennis ball. Cover and let rise for 25 minutes. Spray the baking spray on a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, arrange the dough balls on the skillet. Sprinkle the kosher salt evenly on the surface. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the surface of the dinner rolls turn golden brown. Brush with the melted butter and serve warm.
For this recipe, you will need about 2 pounds of the dough. You can freeze the remaining 1 pound of dough in the freezer, thaw and use it later, or you can use a bigger skillet and use up all the dough. If the sides of the dinner rolls are turning dark faster than the middle, cover te rolls on the side with aluminum foil and expose the middle part of the dinner rolls. This will help to even it out.
