Garlic Parmesan Dinner Rolls
CLASSIC dinner rolls, except made even BETTER with garlic and grated Parmesan cheese! Soft, tender, warm, and buttery!!!
|1/2 cup||warm whole milk (105-110 degrees f)|
|1/2 cup||warm water (105-110 degrees f)|
|2 1/4 teaspoons||active dry yeast|
|3 tablespoons||sugar, divided|
|1/2 teaspoon||kosher salt|
|1/3 cup||unsalted butter, at room temperature|
|3/4 cup||freshly grated parmesan, divided|
|3 3/4 cups||all-purpose flour, divided|
|2 tablespoons||unsalted butter, melted|
|3 cloves||garlic, minced|
|2 tablespoons||chopped fresh parsley leaves|
Combine milk, water, yeast, 1 tablespoon sugar and salt in a small bowl; let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter, 1/2 cup Parmesan and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in egg until well combined. Beat in yeast mixture and 2 1/2 cups flour until a smooth batter forms.
Using the dough hook, gradually add remaining 1 â€“ 1 1/4 cups flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a soft, smooth ball of dough is formed. The dough should feel elastic and slightly tacky to the touch. Increase speed to medium-high and beat for 3 minutes.
Lightly oil a large bowl or coat with nonstick spray; place dough in bowl, turning to coat. Cover with a clean dishtowel and let stand in a warm spot until dough has doubled in size, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Gently deflate dough by punching down. Roll into a 15-inch rope; cut into 15 1-inch pieces, pressing each piece into a disk, then shaping into a ball.
Lightly oil a 9Ã—13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray. Place dough balls into the prepared baking dish; brush tops with butter and sprinkle with garlic. Cover with a clean dishtowel and let stand in a warm spot until dough has doubled in size, about 30-45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Sprinkle dough with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 18-22 minutes.
Serve warm, garnished with parsley, if desired.
