I just love homemade bread. It’s especially my favorite when it’s hot and fresh out of the oven. Nothing beats its smell or texture when thickly spread with butter and lightly drizzled with honey. Yum.
There is one thing I don’t like about homemade bread making, though. It’s something I absolutely hate and it actually turned me off bread baking for a long, long time.
It’s the waiting time. Waiting for the dough to rise. Waiting for it to double in size. Waiting waiting waiting. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t mind waiting when I know that the outcome will be soft, fluffy bread. But life is always busy and I can’t justify the time to wait for it to rise. I know some people leave the dough to rise and busy themselves with other jobs in the meantime, but I’m not that kind of person. Once I start a task, I finish it before moving on to other things.
Enter rapid-rise dough. Whoever invented this concept is a pure genius. These garlic rolls can be ready in thirty minutes. As in, thirty minutes from start to stomach. Yep, that’s all! No more waiting time.
I made these rolls for lunch one day and as soon as they came out of the oven, I cut mine in half lengthways and put sliced cheese and ham inside mine. So good, you guys, so so good.
