"These are the BEST dinner rolls I've ever made. They also make great buns for sandwiches. For a festive presentation, sprinkle with poppy or sesame seeds before baking." — Kay

These rolls are tasty and foolproof. Letting them rise the longer amount of time results in a softer, fluffier roll. I skipped the eggwash step to minimize the fuss. The rolls turned out delicious.
I also tried tossing in about a tsp. of dill, oregano and basil at the beginning, then shaping the rolls a little larger for hamburger buns. Again, the recipe turned out delicious.
Note: For bread machine baking, it is IMPERITIVE to measure the flour carefully, by spooning it into a measuring cup and leveling off the top. If you scoop the flour from the bag using the measuring cup itself, the flour compacts and the resulting bread will be dry, dense, or worse.
I'm sorry, but.... I have tried this recipe twice and neither time seemed correct to me. I will echo the 11/29 reviewer's comment that the dough was dense and sweet. This is not a bad recipe; I think it would be great for cinnamon rolls. I'll keep looking for a dinner roll recipe, though.
These are wonderful! I have made these several times already, and the only two changes I made are
1. I use butter on the top rather than an egg wash.
2. I make them a little smaller, with up to 18 in a batch.
That having been said, these really are wonderful, homemade rolls!
Another review mentioned freezing the dough, and I have found that it works well. Here's how: make the dough, then divide it into the rolls, shaped appropriately. Do not let the dough rise, but freeze the pieces on a flat baking sheet. After they are frozen, you may store them in a freezer-appropriate container - I end up with two layers, separated by waxed paper. Freeze, then when it is time to bake a few, take the desired number of rolls, then thaw the dough on full power in the microwave for 50 seconds (this worked well for me, but is more than was recommended by an earlier reviewer). Let them rise in a warm place for at least 40 minutes, then bake them as the recipe says. This is a great way to make just a few rolls, as you need them.
Absolutely delicious! I was a little leery after reading the reviews about the bread being sweet, so I cut the sugar down by 1/2 tablespoon. I also didn't have any powdered milk, so instead of the water, I heated some skim milk and added it. I found these rolls to be superb, and not sweet at all. I think the criticism that the rolls were heavy can be fixed by letting the rolls rise an additional 15 minutes. Also, you needn't bother with the egg white wash! If you want glossy rolls, just rub a little butter on the tops after they come out of the oven. They will wow your family at dinner, with such little effort!
Lovely, yeasty rolls. Make only what you will consume in one sitting, as they lose a lot of quality by the next day. Easy to make. Not the absolute best I've ever had, either in texture or taste, but a very good everyday dinner roll.
Make them "brown and serve" style by baking them about 15-18 minutes at 250 degrees, removing them before any browning has occurred. Cool completely and freeze. When ready, take out what you need, brush with egg wash, and bake on a cookie sheet in preheated 400 degree oven for 7 minutes, or until nicely browned.
Outstanding! I followed the recipe as written, but didn't have a pkg. of yeast. FYI - 1 pkg of yeast is equal to 2 1/4 teaspoons!!! These will be a common item on our table!
Thanks for the recipe. These rolls are very easy to make. I wasn't sure how much yeast was in a .25 package as I buy the jars so I used 1 1/2 tsp. They came out great. Can't wait to try them today on a sandwich. Best roll recipe I have tried yet!
This is the best roll recipe I have found. With my bread machine, it takes 3 hrs from start to finish from the oven. Also, I use a metal 9 x 13 cake pan and it takes exactly 20 min. I don't use the egg white and water but instead when they come out of the oven, I coat them generously with butter. That makes them nice and soft. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
