“1-Hour Dinner Rolls Recipe”

Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Proofing 20 mins
Total Time 1 hr
My 1-Hour Dinner Rolls are brushed with garlic butter and lovely enough for a Thanksgiving dinner, but easy enough for a weeknight comfort meal.
Servings: 16 rolls
Author: Gemma Stafford

Ingredients

  • 4 cups (1 lb 4oz/568g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast* (see notes below)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons (1oz/28g) butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups (12fl oz/355 ml) warm water or 1/2 and 1/2 milk and water

Topping:

  • tablespoons (1 1/2 oz/ 43g) butter, room temperature
  • cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, dried

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, add the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix to combine.
  • Add in the softened butter and mix on low speed until the butter breaks up into large breadcrumbs.
  • While still mixing, slowly stream in the water. (Note: add enough water all for your dough to form a tight ball and clean the bottom of the bowl. You might not need all the liquid)
  • Increase the speed to medium and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Transfer the dough into a lightly greased large bowl and cover tightly with cling wrap and a dish towel. Let the dough rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 20 minutes.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and form it into an even ball. Using a dough cutter or knife, cut the dough in half. Roll each half of the dough into a long log. Cut each log into 8 rolls. Roll each one into the shape of a ball (see easy rolling technique in video above)
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place each rolled piece of dough about 1 centimeter apart.
  • Cover the rolls with cling wrap and allow to rise again while your oven is preheating to 400°F (200°C). This will take around 20 minutes. 
  • While the rolls are rising, mix together the melted butter, minced garlic and dried parsley in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • When the rolls have risen for the second time and joined together, lightly brush the rolls with half of the melted garlic butter (reserve the other half for after they are baked).
  • Bake until golden brown, roughly brown, roughly 18-22 minutes. Immediately after removing the rolls from the oven, brush them with the remaining melted garlic butter.
  • After cooling slightly pull apart and serve. Cover remaining rolls and store at room temperature for up to 2-3 days. They also freeze really well.

Recipe Notes

*You can replace the sugar with runny honey in the same quantity. You may need to adjust the liquids if you use a liquid sugar in any recipe.

Use dried instant yeast in all my bread recipes because it can be added straight into the dry ingredients without sponging in water beforehand.

“NATIONAL SARDINES DAY”

NATIONAL SARDINES DAY – November 24

November 24th recognizes these silver little fishes on National Sardines Day. They may not swim right up to your plate, but they sure do pack in the flavor. 

While some people are afraid to taste these small, silverfish, others consider sardines a delicious snack enjoyed on their own or with crackers.

Sardines are several types of small, oily fish, related to herrings. While we might be most familiar with sardines packed in cans, some enjoy fresh sardines grilled. This small fish can also be pickled and smoked, too. When canned, they can be packed in water, olive, sunflower or soybean oil or tomato, chili or mustard sauce.

The term sardine was first used in English during the beginning of the 15th century, possibly coming from the Mediterranean island of Sardinia where there was an abundance of sardines.

Sardines are a great source of vitamins and minerals.
From one’s daily vitamin allowance containing:

  • 13 % B2
  • .25 % niacin
  • 150% vitamin B12
  • phosphorus
  • calcium
  • potassium
  • iron
  • selenium
  • omega-3 fatty acids
  • vitamin D
  • protein

– B vitamins are important in helping to support proper nervous system function and are used for energy metabolism.
– Omega 3 fatty acids reduce the occurrence of cardiovascular disease and regular consumption may reduce the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease and can even boost brain function as well as help lower blood sugar levels.

Relative to other fish commonly eaten by humans, sardines are very low in contaminants, such as mercury.

Sardine oil is used in the manufacturing of paint, varnish and linoleum.

The sardine canning industry peaked in the United States in the 1950s.  The Stinson Seafood plant in Prospect Harbor, Maine, which was the last large sardine cannery in the United States, closed its doors on April 15, 2010, after 135 years in operation.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalSardinesDay

Share a can or two of canned sardines with a friend.  See if you prefer the mustard, chili or the tomato packed ones better! Use #NationalSardinesDay to post on social media.

Look, if you Celebrate Every Day® most years, this is the only holiday on this date. So we’ll offer some extra special tips to help you celebrate. 

  • Try sardines on a salad. Mash them up and mix them with some Caesar dressing for a start. Add some extra croutons if that improves the experience.
  • Toss them with pasta and a spicy marinara sauce.
  • Grill them with olive oil. Add lemon, garlic, and tarragon.

NATIONAL SARDINE DAY HISTORY

National Day Calendar® continues researching the origins of this uncanny holiday.

“Bohemian Rhapsody Interrupted by Bernie Lookalike”

ST PANCRAS INTERNATIONAL

Bohemian Rhapsody Interrupted by Bernie Lookalike? Shocked Crowd! Cole Lam 12 Years Old

PLEASE SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE* Queen Bohemian Rhapsody never fails to pull a reaction from a massive crowd! This was a little funny as the gentlemen interrupted me when I started to play Bohemian Rhapsody to ask me if I could play Bohemian Rhapsody. I assume one of them must have seen me play @Queen Official Bohemian Rhapsody here before, or maybe on YouTube! Check out the reaction of the audience when it “appears” that they may be wanting me to stop or get off the piano – and then all smiles when it is clear that they were asking for another song! Played on Elton John’s donated Yamaha @Yamaha_Global piano at London St Pancras International Station. There’s usually a nice crowd here – and this time it was enormous!

“The Christmas Candle” Good Movie for Today

“Just by accident… I was looking for something else and this “The Christmas Candle” came on and  then…  I receive a phone call,  an had to put this aside.”

Later, I got back to the computer and was now looking for… that which I was earlier looking for … and once again this very same story was continuing… so, nothing to do… just  started listening and watching  and then… could not stop!

As, I was watching for a good amount of time… started to think … that I had seen this… maybe years and years ago… maybe on TV…  so now,  I am watching… and it is such a good story, compared to what is generally on TV today… just thought someone else may like, to take the time to watch… as it is a very good “Christmas Time” story to watch… and make you feel good, too… that you did take the time to watch.

Sit back and enjoy!
