Mayonnaise Rolls to the Rescue

During the month of October, I will be participating in the Write 31 Days hosted by Crystal Stine. My category is Food, Health & Wellness and my theme is "Into The Kitchen". 

Sundays can either be busy with church, social or sports activities or lazy afternoons to be whiled away with a book or taking a leisurely walk with mother nature as your companion. Whatever your day holds, you will likely still be putting dinner on the table.

For me, Sunday dinners usually mean either leftovers from the week or something simple I can whip up in a jiffy. Wow, I haven't used that word in a while. It reminds me of my mom telling me something or other would be 'ready in a jiffy'.

One of the things she would whip up to go with dinner was what she called lazy bread, which is something akin to drop biscuits, I think, only with a softer dough. Anyway, maybe one day I will run across her recipe. In the meantime, I found this recipe for mayonnaise rolls. These are so easy and quick to make and bake. Hot bread is on your table...you guessed itin a jiffy.

What you need:

1 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup milk (I use skim)
3 tablespoons regular mayonnaise (light or non-fat will NOT work)
3/4 teaspoon sugar (optional)

I say the sugar is optional because I have never added it, and we love these rolls as is.  Also, please heed the mayonnaise warning. I gave this recipe to a co-worker once, and she reported back to me that it didn't work which was because she unfortunately had used light or non-fat mayo.

Mix all ingredients together, and spoon into a greased 6-cup muffin pan. Bake at 425° for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. The recipe may easily be doubled.

Whether you are putting a simple dinner together on a Sunday evening or want some hot bread to go with that soup that has been simmering all afternoon, these rolls are the answer.

If you enjoyed this post, please leave a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts.


  1. Hi Linda - these'd be very good with soup and some cheese topping - both for the soup and for the rolls! Cheers Hilary

  2. Yes, Hilary, they are very good with soup. I never thought about cheese-ing the up. Might be good!

  3. These look good, and easy...two of my favorite things!

    1. Nikki, thank you so much for stopping by. They are absolutely good and easy. The one thing I forgot to mention is that if you are fortunate enough to have any left, they are great sliced open and toasted. :)
