Oh how I love my bread machine. It was the one thing I REALLY wanted for a wedding present…and I didn’t receive one, but my sister did give me one for Christmas soon after. I used it until it died, and then my in-laws gave me another one. The bread machine just makes having homemade bread so easy.
This Dinner Roll recipe is what I make for Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners whenever we celebrate at home. Many years I also make them for our New Year’s Day family fondue party. We love dipping bread in cheese fondue. They also are perfect for left over ham sandwiches.
1 cup water
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 1/4 cups bread flour
1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons yeast
Divided evenly the recipe makes 15 rolls. I decided to make some small and large. You can shape the rolls into balls and then place them on the greased cookie sheet and the rolls will come out rounder and prettier. I prefer to just drop them onto the cookie sheet. It’s faster and they still taste great! Cover with a cloth and let rise for about an hour or until the dough has doubled. Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 12-15 minutes.
