Homemade Dinner Roll Recipe For A Bread Machine

Need so save some “dough”?  With food prices going up and up, I make my own breads and rolls to save money on our food budget.  This is a great recipe for dinner rolls or small loaves of bread that tastes great with almost every meal.  I have also altered and adjusted this recipe for high altitude baking.

Ingredients

1 cup warm water
2 1/2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 egg
3 1/4 cups flour (add 3 tablespoons extra flour for high altitudes)
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
3 teaspoons regular active dry yeast or quick-acting yeast

Directions

1.  Place ingredients in bread machine in the order listed above.  Then select the dough cycle or Sweet Dough on some machines.
2.  When dough is complete, grease a baking sheet.  For dinner rolls, divide dough into equal pieces, about 15, and roll into a ball.  Place about 2 inches apart onthe baking sheet and brush with melted butter.  Cover and let rise for 30-40 minutes.  They will almost double in size.  You can also make small loaves by dividing into 4 to 5 equal pieces and make them loaf shaped.  Separate by 4 inches on baking sheet.
3.  Heat oven to 375 degrees.  When hot, bake for 10-15 minutes for rolls and 15-18 minutes for small loaves, or until golden brown on top.
4.  When done, you can brush with butter again to make them soft, but I do not.  

Voila!  You have made the best bread or dinner rolls for your family.  Plus you saved money too!  Win-Win, I say.

Thank you for reading and trying my recipes!
