“These muffin tin rolls are an easy crowd pleaser.”

4 ingredients, no joke! You don’t even need to knead! If that doesn’t win you over right there, I don’t know what will. When I first saw these rolls on the Paula Deen website I got excited, but then I looked at the ingredients. To make her rolls she used mayo. To be completely honest with you guys, mayo freaks me out. I know I wouldn’t have been able to taste it or whatever but I just couldn’t do it. I needed to find a way to replace that mayo so I wouldn’t be creeped out when tasting theses.

After doing some research I found out that I could use low-fat greek yogurt instead. This made me giggle considering mayo is like 1,000,000% fat. I went to the grocery store searching for that low-fat greek yogurt and grabbed one that was 0% fat. Is low-fat and 0% fat the same thing? I don’t eat yogurt but I’m assuming it’s not the same. 

0% was all I could find so I was just hoping the recipe would turn out… and it did! *insert celebratory dance music here* If you didn’t pick a Taylor Swift song, we’re no longer friends… just kidding 🙂

You know in the food fight scenes in a movie where someone ends up throwing the basket of rolls at everyone… I want that role (no pun intended). How fun would it be to whip soft and fluffy rolls at everyone? Probably way more fun than throwing something messy like spaghetti. 

Could you imagine having to wash spaghetti out of your hair? Oh my. When I was in High School my fellow classmates talked about having a food fight for our senior prank. Luckily it never happened! I did plan on being sick that day though. 🙂

    Okay, the 4-ingredient part definitely caught my eye. And then you went and substituted yogurt for the mayo. Now I HAVE to make these!

    My sister always makes that Paula Deen version to bring to Thanksgiving. I personally prefer your addition of Greek Yogurt…I’ll have to suggest that to her. And I’m not gonna lie – I’ve ALWAYS wanted to be in a food fight!

    I’m totally making these! I am so glad to find another mayo hater. Seriously, just the look of the consistency alone looks so gross. I often use Greek Yogurt in it’s place. I’ve never seen this recipe before but I love it! Pinning!

    My husband hates mayo too, but he loves dinner rolls. Your substitution is a great idea! I’ll have to give it a try!

    Great adaptation of an old, old recipe. I remember making these for dinner parties in the 80’s :-). BTW, you can also use sour cream.

    I was definitely won over by the no need to knead 😉 these look so great! I couldn’t chuck any at anyone though because I’d be too busy eating them lol. I’d be the fat kid in the movies getting hit with all the food but not caring because I’m too busy stuffing my face hahaha

    I’m all over these. In fact I may not even share. Sharing is over-rated. Okay, maybe I’ll share one.
