Bisquick Dinner Roll Recipes

I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t enjoy the taste of a fresh dinner roll, not to mention the wonderful aroma it leaves behind as they are baking. Whenever my mom made a batch of bread, she would always make a small pan of rolls with the leftover dough. Although we know them as dinner rolls, they can be enjoyed anytime of the day. I will often have one at breakfast smeared with strawberry jam and a nice cup of tea.

Sweet Potato Dinner Rolls

Sweet Potato Dinner Rolls

I love sweet potatoes but my kids do not.However, they don't even realize that I’ve added them to this recipe which makes it all that more enjoyable. Anytime that I can incorporate vegetables into something that they will actually eat is a bonus. The sweet potato gives these rolls a rich color and taste, and makes them the perfect addition for a holiday meal. You will notice in this recipe, I have listed salt as an ingredient. Usually, recipes which contain Bisquick do not need added salt as the mix comes with salt already added. However, for this recipe, extra salt is needed with the use of sweet potato puree, as it is mostly bland.
Prep Time 1 hr 30 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Servings 6 people

Ingredients
  

  • 4 ½ tbsp active yeast
  • 1 cup buttermilk, cream
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 ½ cup sweet potato puree
  • 6 tbsp butter, melted
  • 6 cups Bisquick
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, stir four and one-half teaspoons of active yeast and one cup of buttermilk. Allow to rest for five minutes.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk two beaten eggs, one and one-half cups of sweet potato puree, six tablespoons of melted butter, three tablespoons of white sugar, and one teaspoon of salt together. Add the yeast mixture and mix until well combined.
  • Using the dough attachment with your stand mixer, add three cups of Bisquick, one cup at a time, until a thick dough forms.
  • Slowly add the remaining Bisquick, a bit at a time, until the dough is stiff enough to knead.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly Bisquick floured surface. Continue to knead, adding more Bisquick if necessary, until you have a smooth, elastic dough. The dough should not feel tough.
  • Place the dough into a greased bowl. Turn the dough in the bowl to coat the entire ball of dough with oil.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled.
  • Divide the dough into two equal pieces. Then, divide each of those into twelve equal pieces, depending on how big you would like your rolls.
  • Roll each piece of dough to form smooth balls. Place the rolls on parchment lined baking sheets and cover with plastic wrap. Allow the rolls to rise for thirty minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 three hundred and fifty degrees and bake the rolls for thirty minutes, or until golden on top.
  • Rotate the baking sheets halfway through baking if you cannot bake them all on the same rack.
  • Brush the rolls with melted butter, and add a sprinkling of flaked sea salt if desired.

Final Thought

These recipes will be sure to make it into your book of favorites. Simple ingredients and a little time make these dinner rolls the perfect snack or accompaniment to any meal. Don’t be tempted by the store-bought varieties, as most contain preservatives and don’t come anywhere close to a fresh homemade dinner roll. I hope you enjoy!
