Sourdough Dinner Rolls

I made these when I was on my sourdough kick earlier this year. I mistakenly thought that they would be like mini loaves of sourdough, but I did not brush them with water or anything that would allow them to crisp up so they had the texture of hamburger buns. Thus, when I'm in the mood for something different with my classic cookout food, I make these instead of my usual hamburger and hot dog buns. I've seen this recipe on a number of blogs, but likely found it at the Sourdough Diva.

(sorry, no pictures!)

1 cup sourdough starter
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
3-4 cups flour
2 TBS butter, melted

In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine all ingredients except flour and butter. Turn on the mixer and add flour 1/2 cup at a time, kneading until dough is smooth but not sticky.

In a greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled.

Punch down dough and form rolls. Let rise until doubled.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes. In the last 5 minutes, brush with melted butter and return to oven.

Last 5 minutes of baking, brush with melted butter and return to oven.
