Every once in a while we all love a really good dinner roll ~ whether with our dinner, or smothered in butter and eaten alone, fresh from the oven.
I really hope that I’m not the only one who gets a little giddy inside when I smell fresh bread baking in the oven – whether I’m hungry or not, my stomach gets excited to entertain deliciousness that only comes from patiently waiting for the bread to rise once, then again, before being baked to perfection in the oven for what seems like forever.
We have made our fair share of bread rolls over the last few years – we have our favorite quick hamburger buns, french bread, cheater sourdough, and the most amazing sweet potato rolls. We’ve cut back from eating grains so although we don’t make bread for ourselves now, we do make for friends and family (hence the reason for these rolls!)
They are too good “not” to make and deliver!
Rolls are my favorite homemade baked item to gift to friends and family and they are always well received.
Every other week I have a local friend that I visit in my area that lost his wife to cancer in December of 2016. He’s from the same small town we grew up in as kids, and he had a business just around the corner from my Dad’s silo business and so we’ve known him for years.
Like many, he moved down to Arizona when he retired and although he is much older in age, he loves to sit and talk when I come over and especially loves it when I bring fresh baked rolls over with me.
If you are looking for the perfect light and fluffy dinner roll, look no further. These french bread rolls really are the most incredible rolls you will ever make and they pair up nicely with this recipe for Instant Pot Sloppy Joes.
This easy recipe can make up to 20 rolls (we average about 18 depending on size), but feel free to make the rolls slightly larger to use as French Dip sandwiches.
