Skillet Dinner Rolls
- 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
- 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 375°F (190°C).
- On a floured surface, roll out the dough and divide it into 18 balls, about the size of 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.

These dinner rolls are fantastic! We couldn’t get enough! I only use salted butter tho and they were great. Turned out exactly as described. Thank you so much!
Thanks so much! These are great! And I should add I got your very helpful cook books and online recipes. Not a single one was in any way disappointing. Thanks so much for the amazing skill and clear instructions.
Do you think they would turn out okay if I substituted plant based butter and oat milk to make dairy free?
Sorry but I am not sure.
