These rolls are amazing... they have the texture and everything of hamburger rolls! They go together in less than 1 hour and are delicious. Thanks, Lynn -- you've done it again.
40-Minute Whole Wheat Hamburger Rolls - Lynn's Kitchen Adventure
1.5 T yeast
1 C + 1 T warm water
1/3 C oil (I used just a little less)
1/4 C sugar (I used less)
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 1/2 C flour + 1/2 C (as needed)
Dissolve yeast in water. Then, add sugar and oil and allow the yeast mix to rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly beat the egg, and add to it salt; stirring to combine.
Add egg mix to the yeast mixture and stir. Slowly add in the flour.
Knead dough, adding enough so that the dough is smooth and elastic. DO NOT LET RISE :)
Cut the dough into 12 (if you want large-sized rolls), or 16 (if you want smaller rolls) sections and roll into balls (hamburger rolls) or logs (brat/hot dog rolls).
I'm still not excellent at shaping these, but they tasted great nonetheless!
Place the rolls on a lightly greased cookie sheet and cover. Let rise/rest for 10-30 minutes. I let mine rise for about 30, allowing them to puff up a bit more (since I opted to make 6 hot dog rolls and 10 hamburger rolls).
Bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned.
