Soft and fluffy dinner rolls baked till golden and brushed with garlic and oregano-infused butter is a delicious, easy side dish recipe.
Recipe type: Bread, Side dish, Vegetarian,
Serves: 15-20 dinner rolls (depending on size)
  • 5 cups (750g) flour (I used cake flour which gives a more delicate texture to the bread)
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups (500ml) lukewarm water
  • 1 x 10g sachet instant yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
for the garlic butter
  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  1. Combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment.
  2. In a jug, combine the lukewarm water, yeast and sugar and mix well.
  3. Pour the yeast mixture into the flour and mix on a low speed until the dough starts to come together. Add the oil and continue mixing until the dough has come away from the sides of the bowl. Continue mixing for another 2 minutes.
  4. If doing this by hand, follow the same directions but once the dough comes together in the bowl, turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes.
  5. If needed, add a little more water. The dough needs to be soft and smooth and a little sticky.
  6. Once the dough has been kneaded, place in a greased bowl and cover with cling film. Allow to rise for 1 hour.
  7. After an hour, knock back the dough and form rolls (mine were just slightly smaller than a tennis ball).
  8. Place the rolls in a baking dish of your choice lined with parchment paper.
  9. Pre-heat the oven to 180°c.
  10. Place the rolls in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Tap the top of the rolls, if they sound hollow they are done.
  11. In the meantime, combine all the ingredients for the garlic butter in a small saucepan and melt together.
  12. When the rolls come out of the oven, brush them generously with the garlic butter and serve.
