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.)

- Once bread maker beeps remove pan and cut dough into 24 pieces and shape them as you like.
