Bread Machine Dinner Rolls

My family LOVES having a bread item with their dinners. I like changing it up from rolls, to garlic bread, to biscuits, etc. I made these dinner rolls a few days ago using the dough cycle of my bread machine and they were amazing! If you have ever been to Texas Roadhouse and had their rolls, these are quite similar! My kids went crazy over them and the recipe itself made 16 rolls, so I was able to put the leftovers into the freezer for a later time! If you are short on time during the week, make these on a weekend and throw them in the freezer. Simply take them out before you want to eat them and either stick them in the oven to warm up, or allow them to thaw to room temperature! Either way, your family will love these!!



  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/4 cups bread flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp bread machine or active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted (use for brushing on rolls once cooked)



  1. Place all ingredients into the bread machine pan in order listed above. *Do not add the melted butter yet.
  2. Lock pan into bread machine and select dough cycle.
  3. Once cycle is completed, remove dough using floured hands and place into a bowl.
  4. Cover and allow to dough to rest for about 10 minutes.
  5. Grease a cookie sheet and divide dough into 16 equal pieces.
  6. Roll each dough piece into a ball and place on a cookie sheet.
  7. Cover cookie sheet and allow to rise for about 30-40 minutes.
  8. Heat oven to 375 and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and brush melted butter on top of rolls.
  10. Serve!

    Have you ever made sweet Hawaiian rolls in the bread machine, like King’s brand?

    If so, could you pass that recipe along?

    I know this recipe is for a bread machine, which I don’t have, but these look so great! Do you by any chance have the recipe for these without the use of a bread machine? Thanks!

    Hi, below are the directions we always follow when adapting a bread machine recipe to homemade…..hope that helps. Make sure you use dry active yeast instead of the bread machine yeast 🙂

    1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water (110° to 115°).

    2. If any of the following are included, add the eggs, additional liquid, sugar, honey, herbs, salt and most of the flour.

    3. Beat until smooth.

    4. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough that pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

    5. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until smooth and elastic.

    6. Place in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top.

    7. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled.

    8. Punch dough down; shape dough, let it rise and bake as directed in the recipe.
