Low Sodium Dinner Rolls (hamburger buns)


1 cup + 2 Tbsp warm water (110F to 115F)
1/3 cup oil
2 Tbsp active dry yeast
2 Tbsp sugar
1 large egg
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour (bread flour will work too)


1) Preheat oven to 400F

2) In a medium bowl combine the water, oil, yeast and sugar. Let rest for 15 minutes or until very foamy.

3) Stir in the egg and 2 cups of the flour by hand.

4) Add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until all the flour is incorporated, and a dough has formed.

5) Shape the dough into 12 equal rolls (flatten slightly for hamburger buns) and place on a sheet pan. Let rolls rest for 10 minutes

6) Bake for 10-15 minutes in the preheated oven until they are golden brown
