We had friends come over to our new house for dinner and I wanted to make a batch of fresh dinner rolls to go with our meal. I used my Whole Wheat Dinner Roll recipe but decided to add two heads of roasted garlic to the dough. I am still getting used to the new oven so the top of the rolls got a little extra brown but they were still light, fluffy, and delicious! The garlic gave the rolls a nice subtle garlic flavor that we all, even the kids, enjoyed.
How to Make Roasted Garlic Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls:
- 1 cup of water
- 2 tbsp of butter, melted; plus more for brushing on top of rolls
- 1 egg (hold under warm water before breaking it)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
- 2 heads of roasted garlic, removed from skins
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tsp regular active dry yeast
Prepare the roasted garlic (click the link above for instructions).
Place all dough ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed. Select the dough cycle and press start. Once the bread machine stops (it was one and a half hours on my machine). Grease a 9×13 glass baking dish. Divide dough into 12 pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Place 2 inches apart in the baking dish.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes then serve with butter. Enjoy.
