Not sure if the original is worth a 5, but I altered the recipe which is why I'm giving it a 5. I used 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast, 1/2 tsp sugar 1/2 cup warm water, 1 cup plus 4 Tbsp flour, 1 Tbsp Oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp oregano 1/2 tsp basil, and 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese. All I can say is YUM YUM...straight from the lips and onto the hips!!!

These were easy to make considering it was my first experience with a yeast rising bread. In fact my eleven yr. old daughter helped me make them. The texture of the rolls were very good, almost a cross between a biscuit and a roll. I think I'll try a different combo of spices next time as the sage, nutmeg flavor wasn't my favorite. Will try with rosemary or maybe dill.

These were good, easy rolls... nothing spectacular, but definitely a good recipe to have around when you want to whip up some quick rolls for dinner. I added parmesan cheese to the batter, which was very good. I just want to know-- in what world does this recipe make 8 rolls??? I made 12, & I filled the muffin cups almost to the top!!

This is the only bread recipe that I can do with awesome results. It is the easiest and the quality of the rolls are great, especially during the holidays. I have also made more than the recipe calls for. I suggest using a 12 muffin tin. I have used different herbs that I like such as thyme, and rosemary when I make them with a roasted chicken. Experiment with the recipe. And make sure to place this one in your recipe box, because people will be asking for the recipe.

I will look forward to trying these - my children are grown but they stil love rolls.

These were very good rolls, and I gratefully extend my thanks to the author. However, there are a few pointers I'd like to share which may help other readers: 1) You may need to add more herbs, they could've used a "kick" 2) I used my 6-muffin jumbo tin and it worked well;I would not have have enough batter for the 12-muffin tin, unless I made these super small, and if you do that, what's the point? 3) Don't drop them by spoonfuls into the tins - wet your hand and grab blobfuls, it's much easier! This recipe is a keeper and we enjoyed them last night with spaghetti & meatballs.

Surprisingly good. I'm used to garlic herbed rolls and these were on the sweeter, lighter side. A nice change from the typical herbed roll. Be prepared for very gooey batter but they rose well and baked sooner than the time allotted for. I only needed to spray cooking oil (Pam) in the muffin pan and they didn't stick at all. Everyone loved it and they were very quick. I love how it didn't require kneading and only used one bowl.

These are very easy to make. Cross between a biscuit and a hearty dinner muffin. It went well with the Italian Sausage Soup on this site. I did 'tweek' it a bit on the spices, I added parmesan cheese (from the can), Italian seasoning and garlic powder instead of sage, tarrogon, and nutmeg due to having an Italian dinner. But the basis of this recipe IS a keeper! I'm sure with different meals, your mind could go wild and the list could be endless.
