Over the weekend, I worked on a bread roll recipe using my bread machine so that I could free up some of my time in the kitchen to continue working on making casseroles for the week. After testing the recipe twice, this will be the one I use for Thanksgiving dinner. This recipe is easy to follow and makes delicious homemade bread rolls for you to serve this Thanksgiving dinner.
How To Make Delicious Bread Rolls
Before you start, assemble all your ingredients. Be sure that the yeast is fresh. Cold liquids and butter can be heated in the microwave (I usually add the butter to the liquid and heat them together). Eggs are best added at room temperature. Try holding the egg in your hand for 5 minutes while you’re reading over the recipe, or put it in a bowl of water no hotter than 80 degrees F. Yeast that has been stored in the refrigerator will come to room temperature quickly enough without special treatment. Never put yeast in the microwave.
Easy Holiday Recipes:
Delicious Bread Rolls
1 cup warm water (105° F. to 115° F)
1 Tablespoon Bread Machine Yeast
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
additional melted butter
Place bread machine on dough cycle. Combine the warm water and yeast in bread machine. Let the mixture stand until yeast is foamy, about 5 minutes.
Add in butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Start bread machine and add in flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough is too stiff to mix (some flour may not be needed). The dough should no longer be sticky. Once dough cycle is complete, place dough into a new bowl that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours.
Grease a 13×9″ rectangular baking pan. Turn the chilled dough out onto a lightly floured board. Divide dough into 24 equal-size pieces. Roll each piece into a smooth round ball; place balls in even rows in the prepared baking pan. Cover with a dish towel and let dough balls rise until doubled in volume for one hour.
Preheat oven to 375° F. Brush tops of rolls generously with melted butter. Bake until rolls are golden brown and cooked through, 15-20 minutes. If they are browning too quickly on top, tent foil over the rolls until finished baking. Serve warm with plenty of butter. ( I pour melted butter on top of the rolls right when the come out of the oven.) Break rolls apart to serve.
