Is there anything better than homemade bread, fresh from the oven? (The answer is, no.)
I'm a bit of a sucker for homemade bread, but most of the time, I'm just too lazy to make it from scratch. Which is why I love the fact that you can buy premade dough from Checkers and other supermarkets.
Yesterday for dinner, I made these brown onion rolls - by what can only be described as cheating.
What you'll need:
1kg of premade dough (let it sit out of the fridge for a few minutes to warm up a bit)
1 250ml tub of cream
1 packet of soup powder (I used brown onion soup, but veggie soup also works nicely)
What you'll do:
Pour the cream into a baking dish and sprinkle in 3/4 of the soup powder. Give it a bit of a stir.
Divide the dough into balls, about half the size that you want your rolls to be.
Take each ball, roll it a bit in the cream, then pack them together in the baking dish.
Top with the remaining soup powder.
You should have something that looks like this:
Now, put them in an oven that's preheated to 180°C and bake for about 20 minutes. (Each oven is different, so you want to take them out when they're all nice and risen and golden).
What you should have:
(If there is any excess soup powder, like you can see here, just tip the dish and tap it loose.)
And voila! Serve as is, letting each diner tear off their own roll. Best served warm.
If you have leftovers, keep them refrigerated in an airtight container. Reheat in the microwave for an even easier breakfast :)
