Why use a bread machine
I use my bread machine a lot. In fact, for the longest time, I didn't have a bread machine because it broke and I didn't want to get a new one. That was mistake. After purchasing a new one, there will forever be a bread machine in my house.
There is a dough setting on a bread machine where you can pull out the mixed up dough and shape and bake it however you want. That is the setting used most often at my house.
A stand mixer can be used, however the bread machine just makes the process easier. It doesn't need to be "watched". Set the settings and walk away and let the machine do the rest.
Using the correct flour
There is a debate about using bread flour or all purpose flour. Bread flour has more protein in it which causes more gluten to be produced. Therefore, the rise is better.
That said, all purpose flour is what I always use because it is cheaper, to be honest. I can truly say, I don't see a major difference in the two flours and my baked breads and rolls are always delicious and fluffy. So the choice of bread flour verses all purpose flour is up to you.
Making the dough
Put all the ingredients, in the order listed, in the bread machine and use the dough setting. That setting will mix the dough, let it rest, and rise.
Baking the bread machine dinner rolls
The machine will beep when the dough is done, so you can take the dough out and shape the rolls.
The pan to use will need to be greased and it is wise to grease your hands as well.
For starters, take the dough and smooth is over the top to make a round ball of dough. It doesn't have to be perfect, but the more smooth you make the top, the more smooth it will turn out.
Next, the dough will need to rise. Letting the oven preheat to 375 degrees and having the rolls rise while the oven is preheating typically works well. They can let rise for up to an hour.
Then bake for 15-20 minutes or until done.
If there are any rolls remaining, they can be stored in an airtight container on the counter or in a closable plastic bag.
These light and fluffy bread machine dinner rolls will become a favorite at your house. They just may be asked for time and time again!
