Wow, I can't believe I made such good rolls. I don't have a breadmaker, so here's what I did: I mixed the water and milk, nuked in in the microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds, poured it into the bowl of my KitchenAid mixer, then stirred in the sugar until it dissolved, then stirred in the yeast. I use yeast from a jar instead of packets, and I used 2.5 teaspoons. After it got foamy (I only waited about 10 minutes...I'm impatient) I mixed in the salt, butter and egg, then I started mixing the flour a half cup at a time. I let it rise for about 45 minutes in the bowl, then punched it down, divided it into 16 balls (I didn't feel like making crescents) and let it rise for another hour, then baked for 10 minutes. They turned out like something from a bakery. I have never, ever baked bread this wonderful. I am so bummed that I am home alone right now and nobody can see what a wonderful thing I just did! I also want to add, pay attention to the temperature of your oven...My oven tends to be extremely hot, so I only set it for 350 to bake these...they turned out perfect. I know 400 degrees would have blackened them. ~K

So yummy! I don't have a breadmaker, so I made these the traditional way (dissolve yeast and 1 tbsp sugar in warm water, let sit for about 10 min. Meanwhile, warm milk in saucepan until it just bubbles. Remove from heat, stir in sugar and butter until melted and cool to lukewarm. In a large bowl combine yeast mixture, milk mixture and egg. Stir in flour a little at a time and knead on lightly floured surface about 8 min.) Cover and let rise about 1 hr...punch down and then roll out. I baked at 375 for 12 min, but could have used a tad longer. Still very good.

There are never any rolls left when I make these for a dinner. After the dough raises, I divide the dough into 27 pieces and form into balls. I place 9 balls in a greased 9" pie pan, this gives me 3 pans of rolls. I let them raise for 30 minutes, then bake in the oven until lightly brown. I freeze the rolls in aluminum foil. When I need dinner rolls, I thaw the rolls, leave them wrapped in the foil and warm in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes. Delicious!

Excellent rolls! I made these into cinnamon rolls and they turned out great! I don't own a bread machine and for those who don't either here are the directions to use: pour water & milk into bowl, add sugar, stir to disolve, add yeast, allow to proof for about 20 minutes until creamy foam appears, add butter, salt, mix, add slightly beaten egg and flour cup by cup stirring mixture. Allow to rise for 45mins in a warm area, covered with clean dish towel. Turn out and continue with step 2. These are very light, tasty rolls!!

My absolute favorite bread recipe. I'm always asked to bring the rolls to get-togethers. I've used it for cinnamon rolls, monkey bread...almost everything. I do cheat, however; normally I cut the dough into 36 pieces and place 3 into each cup of a muffin tin. It makes big, light clover leaf rolls that everyone raves over.

These rolls are so yummy.I don't have a bread maker so I make it the old fashioned way and it still turns out perfect everytime. Mix the warm water, warm milk and yeast first. Let it stand for about 10 minutes for the yeast to proof. Then add the remaining ingredients. Let it rise until doubled in size (about 1hr.) Then follow the rest of the recipe. My husband and boys arm wrestle for the last one. This recipe is also wonderful for cinnamon rolls. Happy Baking!

GREAT!!! 5++++ What more can I say. I have used this recipe many times and always turns out GREAT!! If I am in a hurry I take dough out of bread machine and cut in 12 equal pieces. Roll dough into balls in my hand and then put them in my glass 9x13 pan and let them raise for 1 hour. Bake for 12 mins at 350.... These rolls are also good when made ahead of time and froze until ready to use. just pop in oven and warm up! Sooo Gooooood!!
