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.


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


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!
