Spoon Bread Rolls!

Even at the EZ DOH home, there are times when there is NO bread in the house.....How can that be?!!! It seems I have the EZ DOH going at least once a day, so you'd think there would be an excess of bread, but.....the problem is, I give so much of it away! I need the feedback from folks other than my hubby, and my friends are usually my willing guinea pigs  (You know who you are.....I appreciate you!!).

 Sooooo, it was one of "those" days.....on the run all it's 4 o'clock and I start thinking about making dinner. Ugh.... And I've really got a hankering for some fresh bread,too... I began to leaf through the rather large pile of recipes that I still want to try. "Spoon Bread" caught my eye. I was a little suspect of it, as it's made in muffin pans. When I've tried that type of recipe in the past, the bread turns out a little too "tough" overall, so I just wasn't sure. However, I was in a hurry, so I just decided to go with it.....and I was so glad I did! These rolls were pretty.....they were soft....they were fast......and they were melt-in-your mouth (I let them melt in my mouth twice - I had two!!). And the final test......I had one the next day and it was still so tasty I could have eaten two more!

Be warned - the dough is a little sticky and "batter-y".....I just sprayed my hands with cooking spray so the dough wouldn't stick to me while I shaped them - It really wasn't bad. I've still got a couple of rolls left- I may pop them in the microwave to freshen them up a bit...I'm thinking lunch!!

Spoon Bread Rolls

1 Cup warm water
1 Tbsp/packet Red Star Platinum yeast 
½ Cup warm milk
3 -3 ½ Cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 Cup softened butter, plus 1 Tbsp butter for brushing tops of rolls
1 tsp. salt
1 egg

Place yeast and warm water in the EZ DOH and stir to dissolve yeast. Wait 1 minute, then add 1 cup of flour, then remaining ingredients, including remaining flour. EZ DOH-it until dough is well-mixed. It will be smooth, but slightly sticky. Spray hands with cooking spray, remove dough from bucket, spray bucket and return dough to bucket. Let rise until doubled. Remove dough from bucket. Spray a 12-muffin tin with cooking spray. Divide dough into 12 equal portions. Gently form each roll, smoothing the top. Place in muffin pan, cover and let rise approximately 20 minutes. Uncover dough and place filled muffin pan in a 400 oven. Bake 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from pan immediately. Brush tops with additional melted butter.  ENJOY!!
