These rolls are soft and delicious and mixing them up in a bread machine makes them easy.

I made these in the KA, kneaded for about 10 minutes, let the dough rise for about an hour, punched down and deflated the dough. From that point, I followed the rest of the recipe. The texture is light, the rolls are tender, they have just a hint of sweetness, and they cooked perfectly at 15 minutes. Great dinner rolls, but will make good slider buns or a bun for a breakfast sausage patty. I might try an egg wash the next time rather than brushing them with butter. Thanks, Beth, this is a 5-star recipe, we loved it! Read More

The recipe calls for the yeast to be added in the mix but if you are using a mixer you aren't supposed to do that. You are supposed to dissolve the yeast into a hot liquid. There should be different variations of this recipe. Read More

Wow, wow, wow! We loved these! I got rid of my bread maker so I used my KA. I proofed my yeast by combining the water sugar and yeast and let it sit for maybe 15 minutes. I mixed in the butter, egg, salt and 1/2 of the flour with a wooden spoon and then mixed everything else up on my KA using the dough hook. I had it on I think 2 or 3 for about 3 minutes. I turned it out in an oiled bowl and placed it in my plate warmer for an hour on low. I punched the dough down and followed the rest of the directions from there. I made mine bigger and had only 12 rolls. These would make phenomenal hamburger buns! They were delicious with our stew, but I can't wait to make burgers with these. Read More

FINALLY!! I have been looking for a soft, fluffy dinner roll recipe and after trying myriad different ones, this is the one!! I don't have a bread machine so took other review ideas. I put sugar, 110 degree milk (instead of water as some reviews said) and yeast in my KA mixing bowl. Mix well and let sit 10 mins. Added butter, egg, salt and 1/2 of flour and mixed with wooden spoon then added remaining flour and mixed with dough hook for 5 mins. on speed 3. Put dough ball in oiled bowl and proofed in my oven on proof setting for 1 hour. (100 degrees F.) Took out risen dough and punched down and cut into even sections. You can make them whatever size you'd like. Roll into balls and put into greased baking pan. Brush w/melted butter and cover with saran wrap and proof another 30 mins. Bake and enjoy!! The ONLY thing I would change other than using milk instead of water is I would add a little more salt but that's personal preference. I used 3 cups of flour and it was perfect. Try them!! They are so easy and DELICIOUS!!! Will not try another recipe now. Read More

I wanted to add to my review. I use all purpose flour, and it comes out great no matter what I make with it. I'm photo of the rolls and a loaf of bread I made with this recipe. Amazing results, soft bread slices real nice!! Thanks again for this incredible recipe :) Read More

Made these last night. Used the breadmaker dough setting. The dough was very wet and sticky had to add a lot more bread flour to keep from sticking to the sides. Once I punched it down and removed from the pan it was still very sticky and hard to handle and I had a tough time separating into the pieces. All that being said the rolls are great everyone here loved them and I will be making them again. If not for the stickiness issue (and that was probably my fault some way) they are a 5 for sure because of the ease in making them and the great texture and taste. Updated made them again and they are perfect - figured it was user error last time. We are in love with the flavor and texture. My rating is a definite 5 Read More

Wow I make bread on a regular basis but these dinner rolls blew me away because of their light and delicate texture. I made them on the dough cycle in my bread maker dissolving the yeast and sugar in the water before I added the egg flour and salt. The dough was almost too soft to make the filled chicken pockets that I used it for but I think it was worth the extra hassle of working with a loose dough to get the super light texture. That said I don t think two to three tablespoons of extra flour would hurt. I fluffed my flour before measuring so it might have been on the scanty side for bread. I m going for cinnamon rolls with this next. Read More

Oh my my! These rolls are amazing..... I make them almost every Sunday with dinner. My kids would eat them everyday. To change things up I sometimes add a packet of dry Italian dressing mix. And other time I make a mixture of butter honey and garlic powder and brush overtop after they are done baking. What a wonderful recipe?? Read More

These are amazing. My secret, is I heat my oven to it's lowest temperature, and then turn it off, and put the rolls in with a small (metal) cup of water so they don't dry out for the final rise, and these rolls turned out huge and so fluffy! Read More

I made these exactly as the recipe is written for Thanksgiving. They turned out really well. I didn't know exactly how to shape rolls, so I divided the recipe into 16 fairly rough balls (using quite a bit of flour as it is pretty sticky) and cut a 1" "x" in the tops with a pair of scissors then let them rise in the 9x13 pan. After baking, they look like they came from a bakery, with great taste and texture. This recipe is a keeper. Read More
