Onion and Herb Soft Fluffy Dinner Rolls

Has it actually been almost a month since I last mentioned how much we love this roll recipe??? Time flies:@) This will be my 5th variation as it's always fun to change up a favorite just a bit and make it into something new. If you're looking for a soft, fluffy roll with big flavor for those lighter soups of spring or Easter dinner, these Herb and Onion Dinner Rolls were a big hit! Oh and, they're on the table in 90 minutes. I thought you might like that too...
Note: To ensure it had time to soften, I measured the minced onion then crushed it a bit with a mortar and pestle. 

Onion and Herb Classic Dinner Rolls Using Rapid Rise Yeast-adapted from
2 to 2 1/4 C A/P flour
2 Tblsp sugar
1 envelope (2 1/4 tsp) rapid rise yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C milk
1/4 C water
2 Tblsp butter
1 Tblsp plus  tsp dried minced onion
3/4 tsp Italian Seasoning/herbs 
Melted butter or olive oil mixed with a pinch of dried parsley for brushing on top
  1. Combine 3/4 C flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in large bowl.
  2. Heat milk, water and butter until warm (120 degrees), add to flour mixture and beat at medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
  3. Add 1/4 C flour, onion and herbs, beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  4. Stir in enough remaining flour 1/4 C at a time to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  5. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces, shape into balls and place in greased 8" round pan (we prefer a 9" pan). Cover and let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
  6. Brush with butter/olive oil/parsley and bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until done. Remove from pan and brush with additional butter if desired.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)

  1. The herbs look so pretty on your rolls and I love that they're on the table so quickly.

  2. I love soft dinner rolls and even for breakfast this morning, I'd love one of those. I'll bet your boys finish off the whole pan of them in no time!

  3. I would rather eat bread than dessert! These look fabulous! Did you save me one? heehee! Hugs!

  4. Oh yum, Lynn!! Those are the best-looking rolls, whatever version you decide to make!! I could probably eat half the pan warm from the oven. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe and the photo. Have a wonderful day!

    Big Hugs,

  6. Wow, these look gorgeous, I could eat just these rolls alone for dinner. Beautiful pics!
