Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

These rolls have become a family favorite. Richard makes the dough in the bread machine. Recipe from For The Love of Cooking

  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp of butter, melted; plus more for brushing on top of rolls
  • 1 egg (hold under warm water before breaking it)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 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 (it was one and a half
hours on my machine).
Grease a 9x13 glass baking dish.
Divide dough into 15 pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Place 2 inches apart in the baking dish. Brush with melted butter then cover with a clean dish cloth (don't use plastic wrap).
Let rise in a warm place 30 to 40 minutes or until doubled in size. Brush top with butter. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
