Herb Dinner Rolls

These were delicious! They have a light texture. I used dried basil and parsley.

1 cup of water
2 tbsp of butter, softened
1 egg (hold under warm water before breaking it)
3 1/4 cup of bread flour
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped or 1 T dried
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped or 1/2 T dried
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tsp regular active dry yeast

Place all dough ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed. Select the dough cycle and press start. Once the bread machine stops, grease a cookie sheet and divide dough into 15 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Brush with butter then cover with a cloth.

Let the dough rise in a warm place 30 to 4o minutes or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy.


  1. These look delicious. I don't have a bread machine. ;(

  2. I'm always looking for a great dinner roll recipe! Thank you, Beth!

  3. Kim, I am sure you can make these with out the bread machine. I would dissolve the yeast in the warm water, add the rest of the ingredients and knead for 5 minutes. Put the dough in a greased bowl, and let rise for 1 hour. Punch down and divide into rolls--finish following the recipe.

  4. I'm making these tonight. Is the dough supposed to be a little tough to knead? It seemed a bit stuff. We'll see!
