This is just an easy and quick alternative to buying dinner rolls. The first time I made these, they turned out super bland. Joel, my husband, was kind enough to tell me he liked them, but I'm no dummy - they tasted like nothing. So, I gave them another shot just recently and put a little twist on them. I added about 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. They were perfect! Enjoy!

3 tablespoons melted butter, divided
1 cup milk, warmed for 30 seconds in the microwave (should be lukewarm to warm)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 C parmesan cheese
Special equipment: muffin tin
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Using a pastry brush, coat 8 muffin cups with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter and put the tin in the oven for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the eggs in a blender until light yellow. Add the warmed milk and blend. Add the flour, salt and remaining melted butter, and blend until smooth. Pour the batter into the warmed muffin tin and return it to the oven to bake until golden, about 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
