YIELD 36 rolls depending on size
There is something about warm, fragrant bread or rolls straight from the oven. The house smells great, the food tastes great, and for an instant everyone is transported back to a mid 19th century television sit-com like Leave It to Beaver.
The thing is that not too many people are one income any more, and even those that are find little time to bake rolls every night for dinner. So, either you do without or you use something like the commercial brown and serve rolls which resemble homemade in looks if nothing else.
There is an answer. Did you know that you could make your own brown and serve rolls? They are simple, delicious, and you can make them out of any flour combination you like. Just make sure to have at least half wheat flour or they will not rise very well. You bake them until just done, but not brown, then let them cool. Pop the cooled rolls into a freezer container and you can make just as many as you need. They are always there for you.
I have been making these for years. They are quick, easy, and work! Make them on your day off and enjoy homemade bread in minutes a day. Needless to say, the ingredients used were organic.
