Ingredients + everything you'll need
Here is a list of all the ingredients you'll need to make a batch of these brown butter herb dinner rolls.
• Bread flour + all-purpose flour
• Active dry yeast
• Warm water
• Brown butter
For this recipe, we will be using a stand mixer. You will use a dough hook attachment to knead the dough. You can definitely do it by hand if you prefer or don't have a mixer, but if you've got one, I highly recommend it.
Additionally, a food scale would be helpful for this recipe if you've got one. You will also need a 9 x 9 baking pan.
What is brown butter?
If you haven't had brown butter before, you are seriously missing out! Brown butter is butter that is melted down. You continue to heat the butter once it's melted, until it turns a nice golden brown color. The milk solids in the butter will start to darken, and get nice and toasty. It's delicious to use in baked goods like cookies and breads.
How long do I let the dough rise?
The dough for these rolls will need to rise twice. For the first, the dough will rise for 90 minutes The second rise will be shorter. Once the dough is divided, prepped and in the pan, you will need to cover it and allow it to rise for another 40 minutes.
How do I get golden brown rolls?
What's the secret to getting a nice brown top on your dinner rolls? The answer is milk! Once your rolls have finished proofing before baking, brush the tops of them with a little bit of milk. It will ensure a beautiful, golden top.
So, if you've got a couple hours, you've got time to make a fresh batch of brown butter herb dinner rolls. You won't regret it!
Happy baking! ♥
