Homemade Sandwich Rolls

These are super delicious, fluffy sandwich rolls that come together easily and work so well for just about anything you'd like to use them for! Loose meat sandwiches, butter and jam, alongside dinner, as a breakfast sandwich roll...

Look at that beautiful fluffy yeast - it was very happy and active on the morning I started the dough for these soft and tasty rolls. 

This is a great basic roll recipe that can be used in many different ways; and I can't wait to whip up another batch the next time we need some rolls! 

Homemade Sandwich Rolls

2 cups warm water, divided
2 TBS plus 1 tsp sugar, divided
5 tsp yeast (2 packages)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp salt
2 eggs
6 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1/2 cup

  1. Combine the 1/2 cup warm water with 1 tsp of sugar and the 5 tsp of yeast in the bowl of your stand mixer, blend gently and set aside for 10 minutes, until yeast has activated and is frothy / bubbly.
  2. Add in the remaining water, vegetable oil, salt, and eggs. Blend. Add in 6 cups of flour using the dough hook on medium speed until mixture comes together. Blend in a little extra flour as needed so dough is still soft, but not overly tacky. Do not over mix.
  3. Remove dough from the bowl add a little vegetable oil to the bottom, return dough and flip to coat both sides in oil. Cover with a tea towel and set aside to rise in a warm place for at least an hour (or until doubled in size).
  4. Line two baking sheets with silicone mats.
  5. Punch dough down, divide into 6 pieces. Break each of those 6 pieces into 3 rolls, rolling gently to even out the shape and divide between the two baking sheets. Cover rolls with tea towels and set aside to rise again (about 60 minutes), until well risen and puffy.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown on top and cooked through in the center.
