Dinner Rolls

Dinner Rolls

When people tell me that they have a bread maker or slow cooker that they never use or they just gave away it takes everything I have in me to not scream NO!  at them.  These are the two most used small appliances in my home.  They sit on my counter all the time.  Each has a dedicated spot so that it is always in my sight and I can quickly load it up and press start.

Even if I don’t use my bread maker for bread I am using it for pizza dough, rolls, pretzel bites.  At least 2-3 times a week I make some kind of bread, dough or rolls with it.  Homemade dough is far cheaper than frozen dough and tastes better too. It takes less than 3 minutes to put the ingredients into the bread machine and push start.  Forty-five minutes later I take the pan out of the bread maker, cut off 12 chunks of dough, then place them in a greased pan.  Let raise for 30 minutes and then bake and eat.  Yummy!

We had these rolls to accompany a slow cooker soup.  I used my now almost 10-year-old Breadman bread machine and their recommended recipe for Dinner Rolls – 24.


Every time I make rolls or bread my family asks why we don’t do it more often.  Fresh hot rolls, right from the oven with real butter on them?  Unexplainable deliciousness!  We had 2 pans and enough leftovers to make breakfast sandwiches the next morning with.  (Toast them in the oven with a bit of butter, add your choice of egg, meat and cheese.)


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups flour (I used all-purpose)
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast


  1. Place all ingredients in order starting with the egg in your Breadman bread maker.
  2. Press Program 6 for dough
  3. Once bread maker beeps remove pan and cut dough into 24 pieces and shape them as you like.
  4. Place cut dough pieces on a greased baking sheet.  Cover with a clean towel and allow to rise in a warm area for 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-25 minutes.
