Gary’s Bread Rolls
My brother, actor Gary Wilmes, has been perfecting the art of bread and pizza making. He shared a very simple no-knead bread dough that has been working out great for my kids and guests this summer.
Mix all ingredients well with your hands. Cover and let sit for 12-18 hours. On a floured work surface, shape it into a ball and fold in 4 sides, turn over and let proof for 1-2 hours. (I have skipped this step and not noticed marked differences.)
Divide dough (it will be pretty sticky- may want to cut it with a large knife or bread tool) into as many shapes or long rolls as you like, brush with oil (optional) sprinkle with salt, pepper or a few herbs and bake for 13-17 minutes at 500 degrees. (I line a cookie sheet with parchment for easy clean up.) The oven needs to be VERY hot and you will want to check the rolls to prevent burning.
