Never Have I Ever Made ~ #1 … Dinner Rolls

For real!
I’ve never made, from scratch, Dinner Rolls. Yeah, I’ve baked all sorts of stuff, but not this. My mind was
BLOWN

I know I’ve told you all that I belong to this Food Forum that’s pretty cool, well, I saw this recipe, more like the photo grabbed me first, and MAN!
I simple had to try this myself.

 

S&P’s Cast Iron Skillet Rolls

makes 16 small or 8 large Rolls

1/4 C. Beer (any type will do, I drink Trader Joe’s Dark Beer, MMM)
5 tsp. Sugar
1 envelope Dry Active Yeast
1 C. warm Water
1 tsp. Salt
2 1/2 – 3 1/2 C. All Purpose Flour
Oil, whatever you have, just to coat the mixing bowl
about 2 Tbsp. melted Butter, divided or to taste
approx. 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt, or to taste

In the bowl of a Stand Mixer, bloom the Yeast with the Sugar and warm Water. Add the Beer and Salt; start the mixer with the Dough Hook attached, on the lowest speed and slowly add the Flour, just enough to form a ball and come away from the sides of the bowl.
Knead the dough on setting #2 for 10 minutes.
Lift up the ball of dough and coat the bowl with Oil, replace the dough ball and turn over to coat that too. Cover the ball of dough directly with a piece of plastic wrap, this will ensure that a skin does not form. Place the bowl in a draft-free place to rise, until doubled in size.
Preheat your oven to 375°
Turn the dough out on to a floured surface and divide into either 8 or 16 balls. Place them into a lightly greased 10 inch Cast Iron Skillet. Lightly brush the tops with melted butter and allow to rise again for 20 minutes.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove the pan, carefully, to a cooling rack and brush the tops of the Rolls with MORE melted Butter and sprinkle with Sea Salt.

We enjoyed our CI Skillet Rolls with a lovely Chef salad.

And the next morning, split and toasted for Breakfast.

Cook for your family !!
