Directions

  • In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in 1 cup warm water. Let stand until creamy; about 10 minutes.

  • In a large bowl, stir together the yeast mixture with milk, eggs, salt, butter, parsley, chives, and 4 cups flour. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough has pulled together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and put in a warm place to rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

  • Grease two 9x13 inch baking pans. Deflate the dough, and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 24 pieces. Shape each piece into a round ball, and place into the prepared pans. Cover the rolls with a warm, damp cloth, and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg white with 2 tablespoons of water; brush egg wash over tops of rolls.

  • Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Delicious have made it twice now. I found that I needed to add about 2 cups of water to the dough when mixing it to get it to pull together properly. Read More

I made these rolls twice. The first time I did the recipe by the letter and was very disappointed. Though they smelled divine while baking the taste left much to be desired. After all the word of chopping fresh chives and parsley you couldn't even taste them! Besides that the rolls were flat and just looked sad. The second time I made the recipe I tripled the herbs and made only 15 rolls. I also added some butter and fresh garlic to the egg white brush on. The results were steller. The rolls tasted slightly herby and were big and fluffy. I whipped some of the leftover chives into butter making chive butter and served it alongside the rolls. They were a big hit this way.

These were nice big tender rolls. I only put 15 in a 13x9 inch baking dish and 3 in a pie plate. They took about 30 minutes to bake and were very good. I added parmesan cheese. Thanks! Read More

What a great recipe. This was my first time ever making bread and it came out so good. I was a bit nervous about the bread rising but everything came out fine. I used basil and parsley and substituted milk for Soy milk. Thank you so much:) Read More
