No Knead Skillet Rolls

Today was one of those rainy, dreary days and temperatures only went to the mid 60’s, even though it’s the second day of summer!  I made some ham and beans in my Instant Pot today and when I make ham and beans, I always make homemade bread, but today decided to make these quick and easy skillet rolls.  Now you don’t need to have a cast iron skillet to make these, but you do need a skillet or you could even use an 8″ X 8″ cake pan that will withstand 400 degree temperatures.  I used my cast iron skillet and they turned out perfect.

You will need:

    • 1 tablespoon rapid rise dry yeast
    • 1 cup warm water
    • ¼ cup white sugar
    • ¼ cup melted salted butter
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 large egg
  • 2½ to 3 cups all-purpose flour
    1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    1. In a large mixing bowl, combine yeast, water, and sugar. Stir in melted butter, salt, and egg until combined.
    1. Slowly add in the flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough forms into a ball and easily pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl.
    1.   I recommend a  12″ skillet, but depending on the size of your skillet will determine how many rolls you need to make.  I made 9 rolls, but you can divide them into 12 even pieces shaped into balls.  Place into a cast iron skillet that you have lightly oiled. Cover and let rise 20 minutes, or until double in size.
  1. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
    Brush with another tablespoon of melted butter if desired.

    Look how nice these rolls are!

    These rolls are so light and airy!! I bet you can’t eat just one!

    Slather those babies with some butter!

    I mentioned I made ham and beans in my Instant Pot. This is how I made them. The old “stove” method would have taken me about 2 hours with a constant eye on them to make sure the broth doesn’t boil away and they burn.  In the Instant Pot, you just set the time and forget it!
    1 bag of dry navy beans, rinsed and soaked for about 1 hr in cold water, then drained
    Add, I package of cubed ham
    5 cups of water with 3-4 Tablespoons of Ham boullion – or ham broth if you have it.
    3 stalks of celery, chopped
    1 small onion, chopped.

    Put everything in the Instant Pot, set manual setting for 30 minutes or use the bean/chili setting.
    Natural Release for 10 minutes, then Quick Release…be careful of any hot liquid, or you can just use a Natural Release until all the pressure is released.
    Open the Instant Pot and give everything a good stir.  I turned the saute feature on for about 5 minutes to let some of the broth cook down, but this part isn’t necessary, it’s just that we like our broth to be thicker.
