These fast and easy Greek yogurt bread rolls are a game-changer for busy weeknights or when you just can’t wait to get that bread fix.

So, let’s dive right into how you can make this 2 ingredient bread with Greek yogurt that is not only crusty on the outside but also soft and chewy on the inside—almost like the artisan rolls you’d buy at a bakery!

So, What Are These Two Ingredients?

2 ingredient bread Greek yogurt and flour
  • 2 cups (250 g) self-rising flour
  • 1.5 cups (350 g) plain Greek yogurt

That’s it; just 2 main ingredients are needed! I like to use self-rising flour because it already has baking powder and salt mixed in. If you don’t have self-rising flour on hand, don’t fret! You can make your own by mixing 2 cups of all-purpose flour with 3 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Top Tip: To Sift or Not to Sift? While sifting isn’t mandatory, doing so can give you fluffier rolls. In my opinion, it’s worth the extra step.

As for Greek yogurt, in my opinion, nonfat plain Greek strained yogurt works best. If you use high-fat or whole-milk Greek yogurt, your dough could end up a bit wet, but it still works. I’ve also tried alternatives like applesauce, pumpkin puree, and whole milk regular yogurt. The texture changes, but they still yield pretty good rolls!

Making 2 Ingredient Bread With Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt bread instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C): I can’t stress enough how important this is for even baking.
  2. Prepare the Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Combine Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, add your self-rising flour and Greek yogurt. Stir just until they come together to form a dough. You’ll notice that the dough is quite sticky, and that’s totally fine.
  4. Knead the Dough: Place the dough on a surface dusted with a touch of flour. Knead it for a couple of minutes until you achieve a smooth texture. Check the video below in the recipe card.
  5. Form the Rolls: This is where it can get a bit messy due to the sticky dough, but don’t worry. Lightly wet your hands, and take a portion of the dough, rolling it into a ball. I recommend spacing these dough balls about 2 inches apart on your baking sheet.
  6. Bake: Pop them into your preheated oven for about 25 minutes. I find that this is the sweet spot for rolls that are golden and crusty on the outside and soft on the inside.

Top Tip: For perfectly baked rolls, look for a golden-brown crust and listen for a hollow tap sound. A clean toothpick test also confirms they’re ready.

And there you have it—delicious 2-ingredient emergency bread rolls, perfect for nearly any occasion or meal.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even experiment with adding herbs or spices to the dough. Once, my husband requested a dash of garlic powder and some chopped rosemary for an extra kick, and they were a hit even with my kids!

3 Delicious Ways to Serve This Greek Yogurt Bread

Greek yogurt bread with butter

These 2-ingredient yogurt bread rolls are versatile, making them the perfect canvas for various toppings and side dishes. Here are my three favorite and scrumptious serving suggestions to make your meal extra special:

  1. Butter and Jam: Oh, you can’t go wrong with a good old butter and jam combo, can you? As soon as these rolls come out of the oven, I like to slather on some butter—letting it melt into every delicious crevice. And then, the jam! Whether it’s strawberry or blueberry, you’re in for a treat. But if you ask me, nothing beats mango or passionfruit jam; they’re my personal favorites. This pairing doesn’t just make these rolls scrumptious; it turns them into something you’d want to wake up to every morning or grab as a quick, delightful snack. Trust me, it’s that good!
  2. Turkey Barley Soup: For a hearty, wholesome meal, these bread rolls are the ultimate side dish to a warm bowl of this Turkey Barley Soup. Their crusty outsides and soft insides make them perfect for soaking up the rich, flavorful broth. Trust me, the slightly tangy notes of the bread wonderfully complement the savory, meaty goodness of the soup.
  3. Homemade Margarine: If you’re into plant-based options or just looking for a lighter alternative to butter, homemade margarine can be a fantastic choice. You’ve got to try these rolls with my homemade margarine. Add your favorite herbs or a hint of garlic—it’s a simple way to make these rolls even more special. Check out my easy homemade margarine recipe here; you won’t regret it!

Greek Yogurt Bread Storage and Freshness Tips

For short-term storage, keep these Greek yogurt bread rolls in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days. To freeze, place them in a freezer-safe bag; they’ll be good for up to a month. To enjoy later, simply thaw or warm in the oven.

Notes

  • Self-Rising Flour: If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make your own by adding 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to each cup of all-purpose flour.
  • Greek Yogurt Substitutes: If you don’t have Greek yogurt, you can try using plain yogurt, but you might need to adjust the flour quantity. Other possible substitutes include buttermilk, sour cream, or even mashed bananas for a different flavor.
  • Temperature: If possible, use ingredients at room temperature for even mixing.
  • Sticky Dough: The dough will be quite sticky, which is normal. Wet your hands or use a bit of extra flour to handle it more easily.
  • Even Sizing: Try to make all the dough balls the same size so they bake evenly.
  • Baking Time: Keep an eye on the rolls as they bake. The time may vary depending on your oven, so it’s a good idea to check them a few minutes before the estimated time.
  • Customization: Feel free to add herbs, cheese, or spices to the dough for added flavor. You can also brush the rolls with melted butter or an egg wash for a golden finish.
  • Scaling: Need more rolls? Feel free to double the ingredients. Just keep an eye on the cooking time—it may vary.
