Good Old American White Rolls
Rich and delicious rolls to accompany your next meal whether breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Yield 12 rolls



  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast


  • Place room temperature ingredients in pan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select dough cycle. Do not use the delay timer. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time. When cycle has finished, continue with next step.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles.
  • Divide dough into 4 equal parts; divide each part into 3 pieces.
    For pan rolls, shape each piece into a smooth ball, place in a greased 9×13-inch cake pan.
    For individual rolls, place balls in greased muffin pan cups or 2 to 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets.
  • Cover; let rise until indentation remains when touched.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Bake: Pan rolls – 20 to 25 minutes; Individual rolls – 12 to 15 minutes. If desired, lightly brush with melted butter. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.

A nice, sweet glaze topping for these rolls can be made with 3 tablespoons of melted butter and 2 teaspoons of honey. Brush the rolls with this mixture right after you remove them from the oven.
