Edit: (That was way too long)
Today I made dinner rolls with a very simple recipe. Its straight forward and doesn't require a preferment as it's white bread.
4 1/4 C. White Bread Flour
1 1/2 C. Whole Milk
3 Tbsp. Sugar
1 1/2 Tsp. Salt
1 Large Egg
2 Tsp. Instant Yeast
1/4 C. Butter, Shortening, or Vegetable Oil
Beaten egg for egg wash
Since this is instant yeast you can just mix it in with the other dry ingredients (flour, salt, sugar). Once you mix all the dry ingredients you can mix in the liquid ingredients. Mix this until it forms a ball on the end of whatever you're mixing with. At this point it is ready for kneading. So sprinkle flour on a work surface and knead until the dough is ever so slightly sticky, but not so much that it sticks to ur hands in an inconvenient way. The dough should be elatsic and smooth.
Let this rise for about two hours, at which point the dough should have doubled in size. Then divide the dough into 18 separate pieces and shape them into rolls. Brush them with the beaten egg, then let them rise for about 30 to 45 minutes. Once the oven is preheated, the rolls can go into the oven to bake for about 15 minutes.
Thats what I did, and heres the result...
I hope this helps.
