Course: Bread
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 rolls


  • 1 C milk heated to 115°F
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 3 - 3 1/2 C all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp minced dried onion
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp water


  • Heat milk to 115°F. Mix in yeast and sugar. Allow yeast to proof for 5-10 minutes.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer add remaining dry ingredients and freshly minced garlic. When yeast has puffed up, lock mixer and turn it on low. Slowly add milk mixture and olive oil. Continue mixing until dough pulls away from the bowl. Add dough to a lightly greased large bowl. Cover and allow to rise in a warm location for 1 hour or until nearly doubled in size.
  • Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape into a ball, placing seem side down into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Cover and allow rolls to rise for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a small bowl beat together one egg with 1 Tbsp water. Brush egg wash over rolls.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until tops are golden. Cool slightly prior to serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to several days. Reheat rolls as needed.


-A stand mixer was used for mixing this recipe. If mixing by hand, it will require extra kneading and elbow grease.
-Substitute ingredients at your own risk. I cannot promise how it will turn out if you change ingredients.
-As with all baking and bread making, there are many factors that can play a major factor in the final result of the food, including but not limited to weather, elevation, various yeast issues, etc.
-Add a portion of flour at a time until the dough comes together.
