Yummy Dinner Roll Recipe (Bread Machine Recipe)

This recipe actually came into exsistence out of necessity.  I had planned to make my normal dinner rolls for dinner earlier this week, when I discovered that we had no milk. 

I don't know if anyone else has this problem or not but our house have these magic refrigerator fairies, they come along and drink all the milk.  It's truly amazing, no one will claim responsibility for using all the milk and not telling mom, so it has to be the fairies. 

Sooo, my dinner roll recipe requires milk, which I have none of, and I really needed to make some rolls for dinner.  I ended up tweaking my breadmachine breadstick recipe (which I discovered I have not yet posted here) for dinner rolls.  I wasn't sure how it would turn out, and honestly, I was expecting the worse, but everyone loved them.  They are actually much, much better than my normal dinner roll recipe. 

Here's the recipe:

1 package dry yeast
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup canola oil
4 cups all purpose flour


1.  Add all ingredients into the pan of your bread machine in the order listed.
Yes, the order listed.  I know you normally don't add the yeast in first and let it touch the water in bread machine recipes but do it here.

2.  Set bread machine to the dough cycle.

3.  Removed dough from bread machine pan, and roll out onto a lightly floured surface.

4.  Use a small plastic shot glass to cut dough into small balls.  Place on a greased baking sheet.

5.  Allow rolls to rise 30 minutes.

6.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 18 minutes.

7.  Brush tops of cooked rolls with melted butter.


  1. These sound great! I've been meaning to start using my breadmaker again... if I have 4 cups of flour (which surely I do) then I am going to try these for supper tonight.

  2. Updating to say these were great! My husband compared them to rolls at a local restaurant which he loves, so that is good enough for me to keep making them! Thanks!

  3. Thanks for posting your thoughts on them after making them! I am glad you liked them!

  4. going to be trying these very soon!

  5. Just made them and they are really good. I am pinning the recipe. I did a lot of small ones using a glass slightly larger than a shot glass (but they were a little too small even after rising). I also made slightly larger rolls and I think that is how I would do it next time. The kids loved the small ones though and kept popping them in their mouths and want me to give them for school tomorrow. Not sure we are going to have any left for school though. I would only add a little more salt next time. The large rolls I added the melted butter and drizzled with poppy seeds before baking. I loved them and I am making this again. I did not have milk either and came across this recipe looking to make rolls without milk. Thanks
