In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and instant yeast.

Pour the milk and add an egg.

Knead the dough with a mixer for 5 minutes. Cover with a towel and let rest for 20 minutes.

Add the softened butter and garlic and continue to knead until you obtain an elastic dough.

Transfer the dough to a greased bowl with oil, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Transfer the dough to a work surface, shape it into a square, and divide it into 25 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball, cover, and let rest for 15 minutes.

Degas the ball of dough a little more by tucking in the edges and placing them in a greased mold. Cover and let rise for another 30 minutes.

In a bowl, combine the minced garlic, the dried parsley, and the melted butter, and mix well.

Brush the tops of the risen rolls with garlic butter and bake in a preheated 180C oven for 15-17 minutes.

When the rolls are still warm, brush them with a little more garlic butter and bon appétit!
