"My husband, Milt, gave me a bread machine for Christmas, and it certainly has been a time-saver," writes Roxann Field of Hutchinson, Minnesota. "With some trial and error, we came up with this recipe. Quite often, we are asked to bring the golden rolls to family gatherings or potlucks—and we get compliments every time."

"I have made this recipe many times. It is my husband's favorite recipe and so easy to make. I don't modify the recipe except don't always put in the sunflower kernels. I make the rolls for hamburgers/sandwiches and get 10-12 out of the recipe."
