These sweet bread machine rolls are soft and light yet just dense enough to hold up well for making meatball subs or any of your favorite sandwiches.
These would also make some wonderful dinner rolls. You could probably even get creative and braid them!
Here's what you are going to need:
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 beaten egg
3 1/2 cups bread flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast or Active Dry Yeast
Here's what you need to do:
Place all of the ingredients in the bread machine in the order that is recommended by the manufacturer. Mine recommends that you put in the wet ingredients followed by the flour, sugar, salt and the yeast last.
Turn on the dough cycle and let the machine do all of the work! If you want, you could add some Italian Seasoning at this point too.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.
Divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Each portion should weigh about 5 ounces.
**If you want to make dinner rolls out of these, divide into 12 portions.
Shape each portion into whatever shape of roll you would like. Place the rolls on a greased baking sheet. Space the rolls about 2 inches apart. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place, free from draft for about 20 to 25 minutes.
Bake in a preheated 350° F oven for 20 minutes. When finished, you can brush them with melted butter if you'd like but it's not necessary. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
