Easy Bread Machine Dinner Rolls

Diane Hopson Smith


These rolls were made using my bread machine, using the dough cycle and then forming the rolls.

Very soft tender roll.

I'm posting this recipe by request.

Very easy, especially when the machine does all the hard work.

Directions Step-By-Step

This recipe is for 1.5 lbs and will make 18 rolls. Be sure to set your machine up for 1.5 lbs and set on the dough cycle.

I have a Breadman Bread Machine. Check instructions on your machine as different machines may vary.
Add ingredients to your bread machine in order listed.

Start machine and let it complete the cycle.
Once cycle is complete; place dough on a lightly floured service and divide into 18 pieces; shape.
NOTE: you may want to put some oil in your hands to keep dough from sticking to hands.
Place on a greased baking sheet; cover with plastic and let rise for 30 minutes in a warm place. I spread a little melted butter to tops of rolls. This was not part of the recipe but I like the butter.

NOTE: I turn light on in oven and place rolls there to rise. I take out of oven a few minutes before ready to bake so the I can heat oven.
Heat oven to 350 degrees; bake 15 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Spred more butter if desired.

NOTE: It took about 23 minutes in my oven.
