We have been loving this bread machine roll recipe this summer. It makes light and fluffy rolls, very quickly too I might add. I love the hands-off aspect of making these rolls. I don’t have to knead them, just toss everything in the bread machine and walk away for a bit.

Bread Machine Roll Recipe
We have been using these rolls for everything! From a side with our chili, which is why I first made them when I stop to think about it, to use them as hamburger buns, whatever you want to have rolls for.
What You Need:
- 1 cup warm water
- 3 tbsp margarine
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 3 tsp yeast
- 1 large egg
- 3 cups white flour
- 1 tsp salt
How to Make these Bread Machine Rolls
I put everything into my bread machine in the order I have it listed.
You don’t want the salt right in there with your yeast or it can kill your yeast which is why I save the salt for last.
Every bread machine is different. I have had 3 now, and they each have their own settings, different times for each setting, etc.
In these pictures, I used the bread dough setting which just kneads the dough, not a lot of rising time in there. You could also use the pizza dough setting or a dough setting. The pizza dough and dough setting as my old machine had, will include a rise time in a warm machine.
Grab a cookie sheet and some parchment paper. Roll out your dough, flattening it some. You want to cut it into equal-sized pieces. Mine are not the same size, but I’m okay with them.
Roll each piece into a ball. I flatten them down a little now and again before I bake so they have more of a flatter hamburger bun shape instead of balls.
Cover them, and leave them to rise for about 30 minutes in a warm place. I set them on top of my oven while it is pre-heating.
Bake at 400 for 12 minutes. If you are making larger rolls, I get 12 “regular” sized rolls out of this recipe, the 12 minutes bake time is perfect, if you make larger you may need to bake for a few minutes longer.
My kids love to eat these fresh from the oven with nothing on them. Who doesn’t love anything bread-related fresh from the oven?
