Easy Recipe

Thursday night I mixed up a batch of Overnight Refrigerator Rolls, and popped the dough in the fridge.  Friday morning, while prepping my husband's meals for the week (he's a truck driver, away 4-5 days at a time),  I made the buns and let them rise slowly.

They were easy, mess-free to make and oh so good!

Overnight Refrigerator Rolls

1 pkg yeast
1/2 c warm water
1/2 c warm 2% milk
1 T sugar

Proof yeast in warm water, milk and sugar.

In a warmed mixer bowl, mix proofed yeast and:

1/4 c melted butter
1 t salt
1 egg
2 c all-purpose flour (I used hard bread flour, I prefer it)

Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.  Stir in enough flour (approx another 1 cup) to form a soft dough.  Place in a greased bowl, turning over once to coat dough with oil.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.  

In the morning, punch down and divide into 12 balls.  Place 2" apart on greased baking sheet.  Cover and let rise until doubled.  Bake 400 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes.
