best ever homemade dinner rolls and burger buns
We just celebrated Joe’s birthday and as per his request I made his favorite dinner rolls. Buttery and delicious, they were the perfect accompaniment to his other requests: Mushroom and Meatball Casserole, this time made with steak instead of meatballs, leaf lettuce salad, fresh cauliflower, and a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard Cake from Dairy Queen.
This roll recipe is from the King Arthur Flour Company and is truly best when using their flour, which can be purchased at most grocery stores. I have discovered that all my yeast breads are definitely better using their flours and well worth the little bit extra it costs.
I also use this recipe to make the most delicious hamburger buns that are especially good when they have a tasty pork chop inside that was grilled with apple wood chips! These are also easy to make and later in the week I intend to use it again to make miniature monkey bread bunt cakes with miniature loaf pans I forgot I owned but found in the back of my pan cupboard during the kitchen cleaning last week!
Best Ever Dinner Rolls
2 cups warm water
¼ cup melted butter
2 large eggs
6 ½ cups white flour
½ cup sugar
2 TBS. yeast
Combine all ingredients and mix either by hand or with mixer until you have a soft, smooth dough. Knead by hand for a few minutes or with a dough hook in your mixer. Place dough in greased bowl, turning once, and allow to rise for 1 hour.
Grease a 9 X 12 baking pan. Divide dough into 20 pieces, shaping into balls. Place in pan and cover. Let rise for 30-40 minutes or until they begin to get puffy. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden. (This will depend on your oven.) Cool on a rack and brush with melted butter. Makes 20 heavenly, buttery dinner rolls. Can be frozen with good results.
Best Ever Hamburger Buns
Mix as above but divide dough into 16 balls and flatten slightly. Place apart on greased cookie sheets and allow to rise for 30-40 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes. Cool on racks and spit for buns. Can be toasted before serving. You can also add 1 tsp. onion powder and 1 tsp. minced onion flakes or 2 tsp. garlic powder or powdered ranch dressing mix when mixing dough for a flavored bun. Can also be topped with sesame seeds before baking. Makes 16 buns and can be frozen with good results.

And you can learn about my thoughts on developing your own philosophy of education as well as finding the methods of homeschooling that work best for you and your children bylooking for my presentations on the Home Educating Family media site!
1.We must acknowledge that we are all sinners. “For we are all become as one that is unclean, and all our righteousnesses are as a polluted garment: and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. (Isaiah 64:6) and “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
2.We are all accountable for our own sins before God. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.” (2 Corinthians 5:10)
3.There is only one way to be forgiven of these sins and that is through the blood of Jesus Christ. “Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)
4.If we confess our sin to the Lord and repent of it (not allow it to rule in our lives) we can be forgiven and be in right standing with God. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousenss.” (1 John 1:9)
5.Genuine salvation will result in living lives of good works but none of those works contribute in any way to our standing before God which is based solely and completely on the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. “But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of God. (Hebrews 10:12) and “Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to His mercy He saved us by the washing of regeneration and the renewing of the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5) and “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8)
6.We all, men and women, boys and girls, have direct access to the throne of grace because everyone who is a born-again believer in Jesus Christ is called a “priest and king” in God’s economy. “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (I Peter 2:9)
I believe that many of the false teachings within the patriocentric movement are in direct contrast to these Scriptures and I would encourage each of us to first examine what we believe about Jesus and His work on the cross, its implications and its marvelous power.
Secondly, I would challenge anyone reading here to examine your own heart and ask yourself whether you have been trusting in good works….baptism, homeschooling, church attendance, modest dress, the list goes on and on, or if you have placed ALL your faith and hope in Jesus’ blood and righteousness alone.
And finally, I would challenge you to examine the teachings within your own church system, whether it is Protestant, Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, etc. Ask yourself what your church teaches about ecclesiastical authority and family authority. Does it line up with the Word of God? It is a top down system that requires certain works in exchange for a relationship with Jesus Christ or do you have the assurance that you are saved for eternity by His death on the cross in your stead? Does it teach that the fruits of the spirit and obedience to all the one anothers is what our lives will demonstrate or is there a list of man made rules?
If you desire to talk with me about this, please send me a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. My desire is that no one who visits this website will leave without knowing the glorious truth that we can have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and can enjoy a life filled with His goodness and grace!
