Dinner Rolls

I am posting this one for dear friend and faithful blog reader Kristy Chapman. She really wants this recipe. We were on a field trip, and the kids were eating little sandwiches on leftover dinner rolls. I saw somewhere that people call these "sliders" and so that's what the kids were calling them too. They are cute, and the perfect size for kids. Sam could probably eat 2, but I don't make him 2. I just put more meat in his. Also Nathan is very picky, so he likes his meat on the side, and the roll by itself. And NO CHEESE!!! You make these in a bread machine, so it's really easy.

Dinner Rolls
1 1/2 cups water
2 tbsp butter, softened
1 egg
5 1/4 cups bread flour (I usually do 2 cups wheat, and 3 1/4 cups white)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tsp yeast

Place all ingredients in bread pan in order listed. Use dough setting on bread machine. When cycle is done, Grease 2 cookie sheets. Punch dough down and divide into 3 parts. Divide each of these into 8 parts. Shape each of the 24 pieces into a ball. Place 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets. Cover; let rise 30 to 40 minutes or until doubled in size. Near the end of the rise time, preheat oven to 375. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

So there it is, Miss Kristy! Easy and yummy. Let me know if you try it!
