These One Hour Ranch Dinner Rolls are perfect for entertaining this holiday season! They’re super quick to make and who doesn’t love a freshly baked homemade roll?!
So what sets these easy dinner rolls apart from the rest? I’ve infused the dough with Hidden Valley® Ranch Dip Mix! I teamed up with Hidden Valley and Glad® Press’n Seal to create an amazing holiday recipe that is perfect for entertaining.
I immediately thought of Dinner Rolls!
We serve homemade rolls with dinner, use them to make leftover ham sandwiches, they’re perfect for gifting and who doesn’t love carbs during the holidays?!
I picked up a slew of these Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mixes at Walmart (located in the dressing isle) and couldn’t wait to try all the flavor options inside these classic rolls!
I worked really hard to perfect this recipe, and I KNOW you’re going to have a major success with it too!
How to Make One Hour Dinner Rolls:
You’ll want to start out by using a rapid rise yeast for this recipe. This is what makes it possible to have fluffy rolls in just one hour!
Combine warm water (about 110 degrees), sugar and yeast in the bowl of your mixer and let it “proof” for 5 minutes. The mixture should begin to foam or bubble, indicating that the yeast is activating.
What happens if my yeast doesn’t activate?
- If you’re finding that your yeast is not activating, you’ll want to start over with new yeast.
- Make sure your yeast is not old and expired.
- Double check that the temperature of the water isn’t too hot, as this will kill the yeast.
Once your yeast mixture is ready, you’ll add in your flour, butter, salt and Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix.
I made these rolls using the Bacon Ranch, Chive and Onion and the Greek Yogurt Dip Mix. All of them had amazing flavor profiles. The ranch flavoring doesn’t overpower the rolls, but gives it a nice herby flavor.
One of my biggest pet-peeves when working with flour or powdered sugar in my stand mixer is when flour or sugar flies out of my bowl when I turn on my mixer!
I came up with a genius hack that will solve this problem and it doesn’t cost a fortune!
Simply wrap the outside of the bowl and mixer with a sheet of Glad Press’n Seal and you’re set!
Bonus – you can also reuse it to cover the bowl of bread dough when it’s rising!
How do I know if my dough is ready?
- When you’re mixing the dough, start with 3 cups of flour and add 1/4 cup more at a time until the dough starts to pull away from the edges of the bowl. You shouldn’t use more than 4 cups.
- The dough should be slightly tacky to the touch, but not stick to your fingers.
- Cover the dough and place in a warm area for 15 to 20 minutes, or until about double in size.
Once your dough has risen, gently punch it down and shape divide the dough into 12 equal size balls and place in a lightly greased baking dish.
Let the dough rise again for just 15 minutes before popping in the oven to bake.
Let your rolls get a nice golden brown on top, then brush with butter as soon as they come out.
