Seasoned Dinner Rolls

Bread is awesome.  No meal is complete with bread of some form, and these rolls have some flavorful spicing that will smell great while they're baking.

Yield: 24 rolls


  • Rolls
    • 4 1/2 - 5 cups flour, divided
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 2 1/4 tsp yeast
    • 1 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 tbsp wheat gluten
    • 1 tsp milled flax seed
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 2 tbsp butter
    • 2 eggs
  • Topping
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 2 tbsp chopped sliced almonds
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp basil
    • 1/2 tsp oregano


  1. Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, salt, wheat gluten, and flax seed.  Set aside.
  2. In a sauce pan, combine the milk, water, and butter.  Heat on low until the butter is melted.  Do not exceed 120°F.
  3. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix well.  Add the eggs and mix until combined.  Add enough remaining flour to form a dough and knead for 6 minutes.  Place in a greased dish and let rise in a warm place until doubled, 45-60 minutes.
  4. Punch down the dough.  Divide into 24 pieces.  Roll each into a 12"-14" rope and tie into a loose knot.  With the two ends, tuck one over the top into the middle of the knot, and the other under the bottom.  Place in a greased baking dish.
    • If you aren't feeling adventurous then you can just roll them into balls and they'll still taste just as good.
  5. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  6. For the topping, brush the rolls with the egg.  Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and sprinkle over the rolls.  Bake at 375ºF for 12-17 minutes until golden brown.  Serve warm.
