This recipe makes wonderfully soft rolls to use for your sandwiches or burgers, etc. Recipe courtesy of Quick Cooking.
- Place all ingredients except melted butter in the pan of your bread machine according to manufacturer's directions.
- Select dough cycle.
- Check dough after 5 minutes mixing and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water (or more) if needed.
- When cycle is complete, remove dough to a lightly floured board and punch down.
- Divide dough in half and roll each half to 3/4" thickness.
- Cut with a 2 1/2" round biscuit cutter and place on greased baking sheet.
- Brush tops with melted butter, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 hour).
- Bake at 350° for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Turned out so soft and nice. Going to use them for BBQ pork sandwiches later today.
I've always found sandwich rolls rise too high and make the sandwich more bread than filling and my boyfriend hates that! These, however, are different. They don't tower up and they're substantial enough to hold some sloppy (wet) ingredients without falling apart. I love them! What a great recipe. Thanks for submitting.
I have been looking for a soft bun recipe all my life which really works. This one came very close. I think I didn't allow the dough to rise enough or didn't add enough yeast because the buns were more like scones than rolls. Very sweet and delicious though. So I made them again, this time with less sugar and 12oz of flour instead of the 30oz called for in the recipe. I don't use bread makers. The dough was more a paste and after rising, it was difficult to handle without flour on the board. I tried a glass dish like chef Dee suggested and made walnut size balls and they turned out beautifully as you can see in the picture. Thanks so much for the inspiration.
