  • cups warm water 115-125 degrees
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. yeast - instant or platinum works great
  • cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 1/4 cup shredded or grated parmesan cheese

  • Line baking sheet with parchment or non-stick liner- set aside
  • Combine yeast with warm water & sugar in a large bowl - allow to proof approx 2-5 minutes
  • Add in oil, salt, egg & flour & mix until combined. (adding a little more flour if the dough is too sticky.)
  • Separate into 16 equal sized pieces & shape into rolls
  • Place on prepared baking sheet & let rise approx 5-10 minutes in a warm place. (I usually turn on my fireplace & set them on the hearth to rise)

  • Bake rolls for about 18-20 minutes.
  • Spread additional butter on top before serving
