Ten Minute Rolls and Why I am glad the first only “Rolls” around once a month.

The first of the month is always a busy week around Our House. I guess it must be around everyone’s house who gets paid once a month on the first.

There are bills to pay and dogs to groom and groceries to buy. Then there was a fabulous concert and a nail appointment and a much needed Saturday afternoon nap. Sunday was church and lunch with my Ham Boys. Then a wonderful trip to Lake Alan Henry with a group from church on Sunday night.


The Ham Boys

Monday finally rolled around and I thought FINALLY! WHEW! I’m gonna get to settle in and blog for awhile. WRONG! There was a trip to the bank and a much needed oil change for “Grammy’s Little Red 300”. 

Today was a long overdue luncheon date with a favorite cousin, a trip to the pharmacy to pick up prescriptions and a Christmas present to tuck away, that we happened upon for a grandson.

It’s not to say that all those things aren’t important. They definitely are. It’s important to pay the bills and we all have to take time away from whatever job we have to kick back and relax. But sometimes all that relaxin’ is as tiring as working an 8-hour shift at the hospital. (Believe me, I’ve done my share of those.) 

Right now I’m just ready for a day to be able to stay home and do my current job. Which happens to be homemaking and blogging.

The recipe I’m sharing with you today is one that is good for those crazy days when you’ve been running around doing all those things like shopping, bill paying and the list goes on and on. It’s fast and easy and “Oh So Good!”

I found it while visiting my friend Christy Jordan on her blog, Christy Jordan’s Southern Plate. She’s a Good Ole Girl from Alabama who has been sharing some of the best Southern, Family recipes around since 2008. (She’s even been on TV with Ms. Paula Deen!)

Back on July 29th, 2013 Christy had a horseback riding accident that left her with a fractured left knee and fractured right ankle. Her legs may have been broken, but her spirit was not. (You just can’t keep a Good Ole Girl from Alabama down.) She kept on sharing and cooking and encouraging others through it all.  I hope you’ll stop by and visit with her sometime. I promise you will be blessed.

Ten Minute Rolls

  I’m really excited to share this recipe with y’all. It’s a definite favorite of mine and the Cowboy’s. I probably make these little rolls at least twice a week. I hope you’ll bake some up and share them with your family soon.  


Here’s how I made them:


Baking Powder and Salt

I don’t usually keep self-rising flour in the house.
So I just use 1 C. flour, 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt.
(I omit the dash of salt that Christy recommends.
They are salty enough for us without it.)

My favorite jar.

Then I mix the milk and mayonnaise in this little jar. I love that it has the measurements on the side and the lid makes it super easy to mix things with a little shake.

dry and wet ingredients

Then I pour the milk and mayonnaise mixture into the dry ingredients and stir it all together with a fork.

roll/biscuit dough

I stir it all up until it looks like this.

Then I spoon the dough into a prepared tin. I’ve found that spraying with non-stick cooking spray works better than shortening or butter. You’ll also notice that I put water in the empty cups on the tin. I don’t remember where I found this little tidbit. (Probably on a website somewhere.) But, It seems to make the rolls brown better.

Ten Minute Rolls

Here are the results. Crispy on the outside. Tender and flaky on the inside. Yum!

NOTES: Sometimes I add about 1/4 C. grated cheese, (cheddar, Mexican blend, Italian blend) whatever I have on hand and a clove of finely minced garlic. (Makes them like Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Kinda, Sorta.)

  1. They look yummy. Thanks for sharing on The Weekend Potluck. We get paid twice a month, thank goodness, but there’s still always a lot to do when payday rolls around, so I get where you’re coming from! HUGS.

  2. GREAT idea to use mayo in the biscuit! That never would have occurred to me. I think these are about to become a staple in my house!

    Thanks for sharing at Wine’d Down Wednesday! I am pinning this onto our new WDW Pinterest Board. Hope to see you back again next week!

    • Hey Britni,
      Thanks for stopping by my little corner of Texas to visit. You really don’t taste the mayonnaise. It’s like a replacement for shortening or butter. They are delish! Enjoy!
