stephmodo: Bread Machine Rolls

Bread Machine Rolls

• 19 February 2009

I've been using this recipe for years...well, since my mother-in-law gave me her old (but still working!) bread machine. I can't tell you how nice it is to have an easy and delicious recipe like this on hand. I'm sure I'm not the only one who loves homemade rolls, but not the often time-consuming process of making them. I typically under bake them a little to keep them soft and not too brown on their bottom sides :)

In the wintertime it's nice to make a good soup and serve it with these rolls. A nice minestrone would be perfect. In fact, while we are on the subject of minestrone soup, does anyone have a great recipe you'd care to share?

  1. my friend Brit posted one a few weeks ago, but I haven't tried it yet. You can view the recipe here:

  2. my most very favorite minestrone soup ever:

  3. I agree, I'd love a great minestrone recipe- hold the hamburger, if you find one, please post it!

  4. This is my go-to minestrone recipe: To simplify and make it vegetarian (for my hubby), I omit the pancetta, and substitute chicken stock for veggie and canned beans for dried, and it is still oh so good.

  5. i just made winter minestrone last night and it is lovely. gourmet jan 09 page 95. or search epicurious under "winter minestrone." It's the one with pancetta, escarole and chard. mmm.

  6. The reason I love this recipe is because of the "pesto" you put on top of your bowl of soup. It is divine.


    2 c. onions, chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 c. celery, chopped
    ¼ c. parsley
    ¼ c. olive oil
    Saute in soup pot till tender
    5 c. beef broth
    1 c. carrots chopped
    4 c. water
    2 tsp. Basil leaves
    2 c. canned diced tomatoes
    1 tsp. Salt
    16 oz. Tomato sauce
    ¼ tsp. Pepper
    2 c. cabbage
    Add to finished batch of ingredients and simmer 1 hour.
    1 ¼ c. zucchini chopped
    16 oz. Kidney beans, undrained
    1 c. chopped green beans, chopped
    16 oz. Garbanzo beans
    4 oz. Pasta
    Add to soup and cook till pasta is done.

    2 cups fresh grated parmesan,
    2 c. fresh basil,
    16 Tbsp. Extra virgin oil,
    4 Tbsp. Lemon juice.
    Mix together and add to individual bowls as you like it. If you add to all of the soup, the cheese sticks to the pan.

  7. those rolls look so good! this is my favorite easy minestrone recipe (and lately I like making a vegetarian version with veggie broth and no meat):

    Minestrone Soup

    1 lb lean ground beef
    3 celery stalks chopped
    1/2 medium onion chopped

    Drain fat. Then add:
    1 (15 oz) can of chopped tomatoes
    2 large carrots sliced on angle
    2 cups beef soup broth
    2 Tbsp dried parlsey
    1 tsp oregano
    1/2 tsp garlic salt (I will use a couple of cloves of fresh crushed garlic instead, if I have some on hand)
    15 oz can drained kidney beans
    15 oz can drained garbanzo beans
    1 oz can drained green beans
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1/2 tsp basil
    2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
    2 tsp salt
    4 cups water
    1 1/2 cups rigatoni noodles (I like leaving these out)

    then I chop up whatever fresh veggies are in my fridge as well...zucchini, radishes, cauliflower, etc.)

    Simmer for 20 min. Add 2 Tbsp diced green pepper at end.


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
