30-Minute Garlic Parmesan Dinner Rolls
30-Minute Garlic Parmesan Dinner Rolls, the perfect bread recipe to serve with any meal. Great for holidays, so simple to make. Cheesy, garlicky goodness!
- 1¼ cups warm water 115-125 degrees
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 2 Tbsp. yeast - instant or platinum works great
- ⅓ cup canola oil
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 large egg
- 3½ cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp granulated garlic
- 1/4 cup shredded or grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp parsley
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 the dough into 16 equal-sized pieces & shape into rolls. (see notes below about kneading the dough)
Place on the 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).
Brush the raised rolls with melted butter & sprinkle with granulated garlic, cheese & parsley.
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Bake rolls for about 18-20 minutes.
Spread additional butter on top before serving.
**Note - I had a reader tell me that she replaced the water with milk & the egg with a heaping tablespoon of fat-free Greek yogurt. Followed the rest of the recipe as written & had great results.
*Kneading the dough - This dough doesn’t require a lot of kneading, however, when making bread the kneading is what creates the gluten in the dough that makes bread light and fluffy – so it does help if you want these to be fluffier. I found that the mixing process in the stand mixer was enough to create the right amount of gluten, while some people in different elevations or climates might require a bit more to get the same result. In this case - you will need to knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes. I have a video tutorial for my 1-hour dinner rolls that might be helpful – the steps are pretty similar and it would give you a better idea of how I create the rolls.
