French Bread Rolls

Ya’ll let me tell you that these rolls may be the BEST homemade French bread rolls I’ve ever made.

The “I can’t stop snacking on them kind of good”!!

Oh my gooooooodnesss, I may have to make another batch of these soon. Hmmmm….perhaps even today! 🙂

*1 1/2 cups hot water
*1 tablespoon active dry yeast
*2 tablespoons sugar
*2 tablespoons vegetable oil
*1 teaspoon salt
*4 cups all-purpose flour

In a small bowl, stir together the hot water, sugar, and yeast.  Let this sit for 3-5 minutes until it becomes foamy and bubbly at the top.

Pour the water-yeast mixture into the bread machine.  Add the vegetable oil and flour. Pour the salt on top of the flour.

Start the bread machine on the “Dough” cycle. Once the dough is well kneaded, about 15 minutes, removed from bread machine and place the dough in a large bowl.  Cover the bowl with wax paper. Lay a dish fowl on top of the wax paper. Let the dough rise until its doubled, about 50-60 minutes.

Once the dough has doubled, remove the dish towel and wax paper. Save the wax paper & leave the dish towel out.

Punch the dough down to remove any excess air. Separate into 10-12 pieces and roll into balls.  Place the balls on a lightly greased baking sheet.


Once the dough balls are on the baking sheet, cover with wax paper and a dish towel. Let the rolls rise until doubled, about 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the tops are lightly browned.

Slice in half and smear with butter and enjoy!

Happy Baking!
