As far as fresh made bread items go, this recipe is actually pretty easy as it requires no kneading, just plenty of rise time in a warm space. Make these rolls to go with sliders, or to serve alongside a warm stew.
2 cups warm water
1/2 ounce active dry yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, melted
6 cups of flour
3 medium onions
3 tablespoons olive oil
In a bowl, mix the warm water, yeast and sugar together and let sit until foamy, or 10 minutes. While that is happening, chop your onions finely and saute them in the olive oil on medium until golden brown.
Stir the salt, eggs and butter into your yeast mixture. Gradually add in the flour and onions, stirring well. Brush the dough mixture with a little oil and cover with Saran Wrap, allowing the dough to rise for an hour or so in a warm place.
Once the dough has doubled in size, divide the dough into quarters, and then divide those quarters into quarters, until you have sixteen balls of dough. Gently roll these balls between your palms and place into a buttered 9 x 13 inch pan. Cover loosely again and allow the dough to rise for another 40 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, brush the dough with butter and bake for 20 minutes.
