Dinner Rolls (Thanksgiving: Let's Eat Week)

Day 3 of Thanksgiving: Let's Eat Week is upon us.

Quick recap. Day 1 was the completely delightful Garlic Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes. Day 2 was the bacon loaded Brussel Sprouts with Bacon, Garlic, and Onions.

Today, the carb gods are upon us, and there are Dinner Rolls.

Here is a not so secret secret. I love myself really good rolls. Heck, I love myself some really good anything bread.

Here is another secret, that you may not know about me...

On Thanksgiving, I go light on pretty much everything but three things. Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, and Rolls. In fact, I have been known to forgo a slice of pie just so I can have another roll. Yeah, I take my roll-eating pretty seriously.

Now that you know that, we can proceed and you can feel secure and trust me when I say these rolls are super yummy. You know since I am practically a roll professional and all.

You can feel confident about showing up to a Thanksgiving meal with these.

Happy carb eating!

Dinner Rolls 

3 cups warm water
2 1/2 Tablespoons yeast
4 eggs
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon Salt
10 cups flour

Pour the warm water into a bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over the water. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes, until the mixtures is foamy. Whisk in the eggs, butter, sugar, and salt. Whisk until everything is well mixed.

Add the flour in two cups at a time, stirring now with a wooden spoon. Once the flour has been mixed in, knead the dough while it is in the bowl. Knead for several minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1 hour.

Once it has risen, punch the dough down. Dump on the counter. Divide the dough into 3 equal sections. Roll each section into thick pizza like rounds. Cut
into 8-10 equal pieces. Form the pieces into rolls.

Place them in lightly greased baking pans. Place the rolls right next to each other, touching. Let them rise for another 1/2 hour.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Butter the top of the rolls when they are done.

Come back for more Thanksgiving: Let's Eat Week tomorrow.
Tomorrow I am sharing my very favorite Spinach Salad recipe.
