  • 1 cup milk lukewarm
  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast 1 packet
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg beaten

Garlic Herb Oil:

  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic finely minced
  • 1 tbs fresh dill chopped
  • 2 tbs parsley chopped
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt optional


  • Pour the warm milk in the bowl of a stand mixer with dough hook attached or a large bowl is hand mixing/kneading. Add the sugar to the milk then sprinkle the yeast on the tops. Whisk the mixture and allow it to proof for 5-10 minutes. The mixture should appear foamy if yeast is active.
  • When you see the yeast is active, add the oil, flour and salt. Start at low speed with the dough hook on the mixer. When a ball starts to form (you may need a bit of additional flour), increase speed to medium and knead for 6-8 minutes on the machine, or 10-12 minutes kneading by hand. Dough should be soft and elastic yet not sticky.
  • Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk; 1-1 1/2 hours.
  • After dough has doubled, punch it down to remove the air. Divide dough into 8 equal portions. Shape each into a ball and place 3 across, 3 down in a 9 x 9-inch greased square pan. Metal is preferred here. Cover and let rise until puffy--about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350F/180C and make the herb oil.
  • Mix all herb oil ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • When rolls are puffy, brush with the beaten egg and bake for 25-30 minutes; until they are a deep golden color.
  • Brush with the herb oil as soon as they are removed from the oven. Let them sit about 15 minutes to cool slightly before serving.
