Toaster Oven No Knead Rolls

I'm an unabashed lover of bread.   Well, let me qualify that, I love home made bread.  The very act of making the bread, kneading it, watching it as it rises and then the amazing aroma of the baking bread.
It makes my heart sing and my mouth water.

However, sometimes, you want home made rolls and don't have time to either let it rise slowly or even feel like kneading the dough.  

Which is where this month's Multicooker Monday offering comes in.  Sue of Palatable Pastime is our hostess for this particular foray.  

We're a group of bloggers who are asked to make something with one of our favorite or even not so favorite kitchen helpers, ie: Toaster Ovens, Crockpots, Instant Pots, etc.  Honestly, with some of the great recipes other bloggers have posted, I've almost made up my mind that I need more kitchen toys. 

But for right now I'll stick with the few I already have. 

Although that toaster oven with convection air fry capabilities is getting higher on my list of must have toys, kitchen appliances.  

To be honest, I almost forgot about Multicooker Monday this month, but managed to come in under the wire.
Whew...

I do a 2-3 week menu plan, and use it to plan out shopping trips, and also try to keep track of what is in the freezer, to vary our meals. 
Variety is the spice of life?

It works,  mostly.

On the menu plan the other day was Steak and Salad, and for some reason, just Steak and Salad, isn't quite enough for me.  I need a carb to go with it.  

Either potatoes or bread.   That completes the meal for me.   And I was out of potatoes until my next shopping excursion, so I opted to make some bread.  

It didn't hurt that I was able to score some bread flour recently, so I felt like I could go ahead and make some of my No Knead Rolls, but with the hot weather, I didn't want to turn on the oven, so I baked them in my little toaster oven.   Which fits perfectly with the theme of Multicooker Monday. 

I also didn't want to make a full recipe, 6 rolls are more than enough for us.  We ate two with our meal, and I had the rest for breakfasts the next few days.  They make a great egg and bacon breakfast sandwich, substantial enough for the entire day of working.

They're also good toasted with a little butter and honey on top.  Using my toaster oven, of course.

These rolls are basically a quick and easy yeast roll that tastes great, and is nice and hearty.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Bread Flour + 1-2 tablespoons for dusting
  • 3/4 cup milk,  warmed to 120 degrees
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons  melted butter

Instructions:

  1. Warm the milk, add the egg to it and whisk together.  Sprinkle the yeast over top, and wait a couple of minutes.  Add the flour and mix in.  Then add the salt.  This is a wet and sticky dough, so don't be surprised.   Cover the bowl and let rise for an hour or until doubled in size.  I use the bread proofing setting on my oven and let it rise there for 1/2 hour.  Punch down the dough, and then separate it into 6 equal portions.  I dust the dough with a little flour at this point as the dough is very sticky and hard to handle.  Form into 6 equal balls, and place on a greased pan that will fit into the toaster oven.  Brush the tops of the rolls with a little melted butter and place a piece of plastic wrap over top.  Let rise for 1/2 hour or so, or until the rolls have doubled in size.   Turn the toaster oven on to 400 degrees and place the rolls inside.   Bake for 15 minutes and if not browning enough on top, turn the oven up to 450 degrees and bake an additional 3-5 minutes.  Brush the tops with butter as soon as they are out of the oven.  Serve hot.
  2. NOTE:  This particular day I started the dough at 4:15 pm, and started baking them at 5:40 pm.  We ate at 6:05 pm.    It really can be that quick to make and enjoy lovely home made yeast rolls for dinner.

    1. The only fat in this bread is the butter on top. Please read the recipe.

  2. I don't have a toaster oven but I love how quick your no-knead rolls are, Sid. Worth turning my oven on!

    1. Totally worth turning an oven on, they only bake for about 15 minutes. I can handle the heat that long.

  3. I could easily make these in my Breyville. I do reccomend it when you are ready Sid.

    1. You totally could. I've got my eye on a Breville as well, but it may be out of my price range. We'll see.

    1. These are great, and quick to make. Not a super light roll, a little more dense but I think they're great.

    1. I know you do, you're the bread queen, and I bow to you. These are not a fluffy roll, but instead are a little more dense, due to the milk and egg, but the flavor is great and they're also quick and easy to make.

    1. I was very pleasantly surprised that it worked that well. I've been challenged to us my little toaster oven more and have to say, I'm totally in love with it.
