Good morning! Nothing seems more fitting today than a tasty recipe for some soft, buttery and flaky brioche rolls, best fresh out of the oven (or warmed up). I’ll be honest – these are not “light” rolls but they are OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD. They’re easy to make but sound super fancy – think Valentines Day. I’m usually a dessert over bread person but I just might be changing my mind. How about you? Bread or dessert? Or both??
Alternating between egg and flour additions.

BRIOCHE BREAD ROLLS RECIPE
*makes 12 rolls
3/4 c warm milk
1 T yeast
1/4 c + 2 tsp sugar
4 c flour
5 large eggs
2 sticks of chilled butter, sliced thinly dash of salt (if using unsalted butter)
optional: 1 tsp + 1 egg (egg wash)
In a large mixing bowl (of stand mixer), combine yeast, 2 tsp sugar and milk. Allow to stand for 5 minutes.
(I have highlighted each of the ingredients below to make things a bit easier to read)
Stir in1 1/2 c flourand1/4 c sugar. Turn mixer to high and add in 1 egg. Mix well and add in1 c flour. Mix well. Add in2 eggsand mix for about 5 minutes or until thoroughly combined. Add another 1 c flour. Beat well.Add1 eggand beat on low for 2 minutes and then beat on high for 2 minutes. Finally, add in1/2 c flour, mixing well after the addition and follow that with the last1 egg. Beat for 5 minutes.
Gradually beat in butter, one slice at a time. Beat well after each addition and mix until butter is incorporated into the dough. *Small/tiny chunks of butter are fine as long as they are smaller than the size of a pea.
Place dough in a buttered bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap first and then a large blanket. Place in a draft-free area. Allow to rise for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Punch down edges and gather dough together. Divide dough into 12 equal parts (each part will be about 1.5-2″ in diameter). Shape each part into a ball (dough will be very “wet/loose”) and place in greased muffin pan. Cover with the plastic wrap and blanket and allow to rise another 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350. Bake for 11-12 minutes until lightly golden on top.
I was at the grocery store a few weeks ago when I decided to take home a spaghetti squash and a butternut squash. I had used butternut squash many times in the past and knew exactly what to do with it and figured spaghetti squash worked the same way. Until I googled it and realized…
Be honest. Do you spell it chicken cordon blue or chicken cordon bleu? IMO, this is one of the toughest foods to pronounce. You want to pronounce it all French and chic-like but there’s the issue of the word chicken so your tongue gets confused and tries to pronounce it shee-kun cor-dahn bleu but that just…
I’m so excited to share this coconut curry recipe with you today. My mom used to make this years ago and I remember it being one of my favorite recipes. The flavors are all so different but somehow they all combine together and make it work. My best friend made an unladylike face when…
**sponsored by zappos** We drove down to North Carolina last week because A wanted to attend a furniture trade show in the furniture capital of the USA: High Point. There’s really nothing to do in the area so I took the pups on a hike while he visited a few vendors’ booths and then we…
Dressing for formal night on a cruise ship can be a bit intimidating. Gone are the days when formal nights exclusively meant tuxes for men and long gowns for women. In today’s modern day society of cruising, any elegant dress will do, be it a floral silk-type dress like mine, a long evening gown or…
I ran across an interesting debate while preparing for this post. I was curious if raw mushrooms are safe to consume and so I googled it. There are two sides to this debate (obviously) – some people think it’s dangerous because they contain some not-so-good-for-you components and others find it completely safe and even healthy….
