Alright I admit it….I love bread. Don’t kill me. I know, the Carbs! The gluten! The sugar! Oh no I can hear the Paleo police knocking at my door!!! But whatever, like I said I love bread.
Before I became an adamant clean eater I used to make these Parker House Rolls. Mmmmm rolls. At first they were my greatest nemesis. Will they rise or wont they…nobody knows! But once I learned to stop killing my yeast, I was a roll making machine. But then the unthinkable happened. I said goodbye to white flour! Oh white flour…all the good times we had. I may have fought it at first. You will pull my white bread out of my cold dead hands. But then I realized how good whole wheat flour actually tasted and I was on board!
Okay, sorry enough about my twisted love affair with bread. You don’t care. Let me get back to the rolls. So around the holidays I always make homemade bread. By hand. I love a bread machine too, but there is something about going through the process of making it yourself that always feels special to me. That being the case, I wanted to find a new bread recipe that I could serve at a holiday dinner and everyone would still love. And not pull the whole…Oh you made healthy stuff…yay… If you cook healthy you know exactly what I am talking about. The crest fallen look on everyone’s face when you tell them what YOU brought to the party. But these rolls may just be the cure! If you can convince them to just try one…they will be shocked..amazed..awed at your magical healthy cooking powers! Because guess what…these rolls actually taste like Parker House Rolls! No really it’s true!
Long Live Bread!!!
