I am pretty excited to share this recipe with you today! These rolls are dead easy, will be the talk of the dinner table and come with some history. On PEI, there is a very popular lobster supper restaurant that bakes these fresh rolls all day everyday from which this recipe has been adapted from.
As you can tell from the ingredients below, these rolls are very wholesome and traditional. No additives, no extras – just plain old fashion goodness. You are going to spend most of your effort on the kneading. Not that these are intense to knead, however you will want to put forth the effort to ensure the quality.
- 8 Cups Flour
- 1 Tbsp. Salt
- 1/2 Cup White Sugar
- 1 1/2 Packages Quick Rise Yeast
- 3 Eggs
- 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil ( Olive Oil )
- 3 Cups Waters
- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F.
- Combine flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
- Add yeast to dry ingredients; mix well.
- Add remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well.
- Add dry mixture to wet ingredients; mix well and knead ( about 5 minutes).
- Let set for about 10 minutes.
- Cut dough into small ball pieces and begin kneading them and shape them into the pan.
- Let rise 60-75 minutes or until they double in size – cover with tea towels to keep them warm and moist.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
- Brush tops with butter once removed from the oven.
Zesty Tip: Place your dough to set in a warm place to yield better results. I like to put mine on top of the pre heating oven.
Well there you have it! A pretty simple roll with lots of flavor and tradition. Give this recipe a try, I am sure you will like it. Try it fresh from the oven, topped with butter or dipped in your homemade stew.
Have yourself a great Wednesday and I look forward to sharing some more recipes with you.
