Easy French Rolls

Easy French RollsThese rolls are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They make fantastic Roasted Vegetable Sandwiches, and they are perfect dinner rolls as well.

Makes 8 large rolls.


  • 2 1/3 c all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp gluten flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 c hot tap water


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the all purpose flour, gluten flour, salt and yeast until well-blended.
  2. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the water to make a very wet dough.
  3. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for 4-5 hours. The dough will swell up and have air bubbles in it.
  4. Scrape dough onto a floured work surface and sprinkle top with flour. Fold over about a dozen times. Cut into 8 even pieces.
  5. Roll each piece of dough into a ball by rotating it while pulling the sides under and tucking them into the center bottom. Place dough balls onto a parchment lined baking tray, spacing them at least an inch apart.
  6. Cover tray of dough balls with a clean towel. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and leave dough balls to rise for 40 minutes.
  7. Bake rolls about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a cooling rack.
