  1. Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt in large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place butter and milk in small saucepan. Cook over low heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat: let cool until between 120º F and 135ºF.
  3. Add milk mixture and 1 egg to flour mixture. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.
  4. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place into a greased bowl; turn, greased-side up. Cover; let rise in a warm place 1-1 1/2 hours or until double in size. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.
  5. Generously grease bottom and sides of 9-inch square pan. Divide dough into 16 even pieces, rolling each into a ball. Place dough balls into the pan; cover; let rise about 30 minutes.
  6. Whisk beaten egg and water together in small bowl; brush tops of rolls with egg wash. Sprinkle with sea salt, as desired.
  7. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  8. Bake rolls 35-40 minutes or until tops are dark golden brown and internal temperature reads between 190ºF-200ºF.
  9. Sprinkle warm rolls with chopped parsley and flaky sea salt, as desired. Serve warm.
