After finding this super easy whole wheat dinner rolls at Finding Joy in My Kitchen, I knew that I could have them ready super fast and that I could even form some of the rolls into hot dog buns!
Plus, they are whole wheat and don't have a ton of sugar. Where could you go wrong? I don't know.
I didn't have enough whole wheat flour for the whole thing, so I ended up using 1 c. whole wheat and 2 c. all purpose. They were quite tasty none-the-less!
Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls (from Finding Joy in My Kitchen)
1 1/2 tbl. active dry yeast
1 c. + 1 tbl. warm water
1/3 c. oil
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 c. flour (any combo of whole wheat and all purpose you like. Or all of one or the other)
In a mixer bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water. Allow to sit and bubble up for 3-5 minutes. Then add in the oil, sugar and salt. Mix it together a little bit.
Next, add in the flour (I already had a dough hook on my mixer at this point), one cup at a time until all is added.
Knead by hand or with the dough hook for 3-5 minutes until a nice, easy to work with dough has formed. You may need to add a bit more flour to make the dough nice and easy to work with.
Divide the dough into 9-12 sections and roll into balls or form into logs for hot dog buns. 12 makes smaller rolls, and 9 makes larger ones. I was able to make 4 hot dog buns with half and 6 dinner rolls with the other half. Very tasty.
Put your formed dough pieces onto a greased cookie sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes. Then bake in a 425 degree oven for 8-10 minutes until they are golden on top. Be careful not to overcook them!!
