I don't have a Bread Maker and I was out of eggs, yet wanted dinner rolls! I found this recipe on allrecipes.

I made these because my sister in law who has an egg allergy was coming. I was surprised that the taste is pretty good. I think they could use some milk in place of the water for some protein (cause there is no egg in this recipe). If not some milk, then some bread flour or wheat gluten added. I thought they were a bit on the soft side, and I like them a bit chewier. But still a great recipe. Next time I am just going to tweak it slightly. This is a good recipe for a first time roll/bread maker. I got about 19-20 from this recipe because I made slightly larger rolls. Thanks for the recipe!
