Basic Dinner Rolls using a Breadmaker

Dinner Rolls by 3glol.net

I got a bread maker a little while back and have been playing with it.  One of the “dough” recipes that were included were these dinner rolls.  I know you need a bread maker for it, but thought if you already had a bread maker but didn’t have a basic recipe for dinner rolls, I would be helping you out.


I plan on making yummy doughs and breads, but wanted to get the basics out of the way and get a little experience before I started “creating” my own.  This bread maker is awesome to have.  Call me lazy, but I love throwing the ingredients in there and walking away.  Then when it’s ready I come back and finish whatever up that I need to.  Works great for peeps who are short on time. If you don’t have one and you make a lot of doughs or breads…this is the way to go. Even if you don’t want to use it for the breads…use it for the doughs and finish up on your own.  And no, I’m not promoting any particular machine here. Just my personal experience. 😉

The trick I have learned with these is that there is a definite order the ingredients are added.  It goes wet, then dry, then the yeast.  You also need “bread maker” yeast.  And in some cases, actually quite a few, you need “bread” flour.  All purpose flour doesn’t work in lieu of.  But luckily for us, this recipe calls for all purpose flour.  So, if you are considering one, keep that in mind.

These dinner rolls take about 5 minutes to put all the ingredients in and then you just walk away.  1 1/2 hours later, come back and cut the dough and throw it in the pan.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Pretty easy for homemade dinner rolls, don’t you think?

I served mine with Parmesan Tilapia.  But dinner rolls go with so many different meals.  They are very versatile.

What meal do you have to have dinner rolls with?

Rock on!
