Herb Dinner Rolls

I made these yesterday and froze them for Thanksgiving.  These are some seriously good rolls.                                                

1 tablespoon active dry yeast
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon each minced parsley, thyme, chives and rosemary leaves. 4 tablespoons total.
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 egg for the dough and 1 egg for brushing
1 cup milk or half-and-half
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tablespoon kosher salt

Mix all ingredients except for the 1 brushing egg and the kosher salt.  Knead until you have a smooth ball of dough.

Place it in a buttered bowl, cover and let it rise until doubled. 

It will take about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

Divide it into 16 equal pies and form them into balls.  Place them in a buttered oblong pan and cover.

Let them rise until they are touching.

Beat an egg with 1 tsp. of water and brush the rolls.

Sprinkle them with sea salt.

Bake them at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

Yum, eh?
