Scrumptious Dinner Rolls :: Spring Recipe Series

With all of this time I have on my hands these days, I like to find new recipes to make for my guys. While searching for a quick and easy bread recipe to make with my roasted chicken dinner I came across the most incredible sweet dinner roll recipe. With a few modifications, it turned out to be one of the BEST breads I've ever made. Spread a little melted butter over the top when you take them out of the oven and then get ready for an amazing bread eating experience.  They go well with just about anything... ENJOY!!!


  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened


  1. Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 cup butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle; press Start.
  2. When cycle finishes, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Depending on the size of the roll you want roll out 12-16 balls and place side by side in a greased baking dish. Cover with clean kitchen towel and put in a warm place, let rise 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
After rising for about an hour
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.

Notes:  I chose not to use my bread machine on this recipe, but instead used my Kitchen Aid stand mixer. 

I warmed the milk and water first, added the yeast and sugar to the mixing bowl and let it bubble for about 15 minutes.  

Then I added the rest of the ingredients (I added the flour 1/2 cup at a time).  

When I took the rolls  the oven I slathered melted butter over the top and served them immediately. 

The rolls are great for breakfast and stored in a baggie can be used for a few days afterwards.
