Need a new bread/ dinner roll recipe. Can I have yours, please?

We pretty much have bread at every dinner. I have done variations on no-knead recipes and "bread in 5 minutes a day" for a couple years now and need to mix it up! Any suggestions? I do not have a bread machine, but am perfectly happy to knead!

  1. this one is easy and delicious -- I make it into rolls instead of loaves -- my grandfather used to ask me to make these regularly.

    1. For something a little different, we like to make these rolls with dried cranberries in them. I don't add the nuts the recipe calls for and add some orange zest. Very good with pork!

      1. You could try popovers -- I use Ina Garten's recipe, that and a thyme variation are easily googled.
        They're fun to make, different and delicious.

        1. Buttermilk Rolls
          1/4 cup warm water
          1 pkg dry yeast
          3/4 cup lukewarm buttermilk
          1/4 tsp baking soda
          1 tsp sugar
          1 tsp salt
          3 tablespoons soft shortening
          2 1/2 cups flour
          In bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in rest of ingredients except half of flour. Add rest of flour and mix by hand. Turn out onto floured surface. Knead until smooth. Roll dough to 1/4" thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter. Brush with butter. Fold over and press. Place close together in prepared 9 x 13 pan. Let rise until double. Bake in preheated oven at 400 for 15-20. Makes about 18 rolls.

          1. Breakaway Bread

            1 pkg dry yeast
            1/2 lukewarm water
            1/2 cup shortening
            1/3 cup sugar
            3/4 tsp salt
            1 egg, beaten
            1 cup boiling water
            6 cups plain flour

            Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. In large bowl, pour boiling water over shortening and dissolve. Add sugar, salt, egg, flour and dissolved yeast. Mix well and refrigerate overnight. The next next day knead dough approx. 2 minutes and roll out about 1/4" thick. Cut with biscuit cutter. Dip each piece in melted butter and stack in bundt pan. Let rise 2-3 hours. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. When serving do not cut, break or pull apart.
