French Rolls

Dinner rolls are a must for our Thanksgiving dinner.  This year, I am making a recipe for French Rolls that I found from  Our Best Bites  website.  I love the texture of the dough and the great flavor.  This is also a very easy dough to make and it tends to be forgiving.  I have made this recipe several times and the dough has always always made perfect rolls.

A wonderful bread to grace your Thanksgiving Day table or anytime. 

French Rolls
From Our Best Bites
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 1/2 c. warm water
1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
4-5 1/2 c. flour
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 egg, separated
2 Tbsp. cold water
1. Combine yeast, water, and sugar in large mixing bowl and allow to stand 10 minutes or until bubbly.
 2. Add salt, vegetable oil, and egg yolk (set white aside for later) and combine. Add 3 c. flour and mix well until combined. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough that barely sticks to your finger. Knead, either by hand or in mixer (my personal and very lazy choice) for another 2-3 minutes. 3. Cover and allow to rise 1 hour 30 minutes.
Punch down dough. Spray muffin pans or a 13x9-inch baking sheet and divide the dough into 12 equal pieces.  Shape into balls.   Use a scale if you have one to get equal-sized buns.
It’s okay if they touch (or will touch after having risen). Cover and allow to rise another 1 1/4 hours or until doubled. Keep an eye on things–if they seem like they’re getting so big that they might collapse, hurry and get them into the oven.
4. Preheat oven to 375. Mix egg white with water and brush over dough. Bake for 10 minutes and repeat brushing the dough with the egg wash.
Bake an additional 8-10 minutes or until bread is golden brown and your house smells like heaven.
