Bread Machine Dinner Rolls

I came across this recipe and tried it. The rolls really are amazing! So soft and tasty. I used bread machine yeast and they turned out very nice! I wanted to get the ingredients in my own post in the event the original post ever goes offline for whatever reason. The rolls are *that* good! :-) So here goes…


  • 1 c. warm water
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp quick rise yeast (bread machine yeast works too)
  • melted butter for brushing buns with


All ingredients go into the bread machine in order. When the dough is done, preheat the oven to 375 (350 works, just increase bake time a few minutes), and cut into 16 equal pieces. Roll into balls, place on baking sheet, and brush with melted butter.  Let them rise for about 20 minutes in a warm spot (I like to turn the oven on for a minute at 200 F, turn it off, then shove them in there.  Bake at 375 for 12 – 15 minutes (350 for 18 minutes works too) on middle or upper rack. Optional: add garlic powder, Parmesan, or whatever toppings you want before placing in oven.

Note:  I tried this with whole wheat flour (Five Roses or Robin Hood, I can’t remember which brand but it was one of those two).  It is fantastic!  I also took half the dough to make rolls then the other half to make a loaf (I did it for a white batch and a whole wheat batch).  Same temperature and time for the loaf as the bread.  Awesome!  And it makes really good toast.  Hubby and I are really impressed with this recipe.
