Herb Dinner Rolls

Herb Dinner Rolls- (reminds me of Macaroni Grill)


1 cup water (70° to 80°)

2 tablespoons butter, softened

1 egg

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon each dried basil, oregano, thyme and rosemary, crushed

3-1/4 cups bread flour

2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

Additional butter, melted

Coarse salt, optional


In a bread machine pan, place the water, butter, egg, sugar,salt, seasonings, flour and yeast in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting(check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed). When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface.

Divide dough into 16 portions; shape each into a ball. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.

Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter and sprinkle with coarse salt if desired. Remove from pans to wire racks.

Yield: 16 rolls.

You can also make this the regular way without a bread machine. Kneed with dough hook for 5 min. Let rise, punch down the roll into balls, let rise and bake.

*I use instant yeast so I don’t punch dough down I roll into balls and let rise.

**Pick whatever herbs you like, so if you don’t like rosemary leave it out
