Crusty Rolls From the Bread Machine

I don't know about you but I feel like no matter how hard I try to plan our meals or take the time to make a thorough shopping list, without fail I always need to go back to the grocery store at least 3 extra times every week.  Last week I noticed we were out of bread and I needed to make sandwiches for 2 kids and 1 husband and I really did not want to go back to the store again.  I have been trying to make a lot more bread lately, and after having my bread machine for years and watching it collect dust for more than half of that time, I have finally learned how to utilize this thing.  I stopped making bread for a while in it because I hated that crater on the bottom from where it was attached the mixer inside the machine (you know what I'm talking about right?)  I have finally learned that a bread machine is great for prepping the dough and then you just finish it in the oven.  Now I use it all the time!  There was the Rosemary Focaccia, the Challah , Pita and even Pretzels! Now I can add these yummy crusty on the outside and soft on the inside dinner rolls to that list.  Enjoy!

  1. Boy does that recipe look delicious. I cannot wait to try it. Come visit us. We have an awesome couscous recipe this week.

  2. Wait, you only run back to the store THREE times?

    These rolls look fantastic! I bet they taste better than storebought anyway.

  3. lol, I am exactly the same way about going back shopping. Sometimes I feel like I practically live at our Walmart... Their workers should know me by name by now, but thankfully it's such a big place that they don't.

    Your rolls look wonderful. I'd be in major trouble if I had a bread machine, we all love bread in our family ;)


    I finally got my coffee filter wreath tutorial up. I think you'd enjoy it. I'm sure dip-dyeing coffee filters in batches has been done before many times but I kind of am excited to have "discovered" this for myself.

  4. Hi Danielle,
    Maybe I will have to get a Bread Machine. Hmmmm. Those Rolls look so good. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and have a great week end.
    Come Back Soon!
