Herb Buttermilk Dinner Rolls

When I couldn't find a recipe for dinner rolls, I created my own using a variety of herbs for extra flavor. —Sue Friesen, Thorold, Ontario
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup warm buttermilk (110° to 115°)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour


  • Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add buttermilk, 2 tablespoons butter and the next 7 ingredients. Stir in 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough, which will be sticky.
  • Turn onto a heavily floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 75 minutes.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 4 portions. Divide each portion into 6 pieces; shape each piece into a ball. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 50 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Bake rolls until golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Brush with remaining butter.

    Have not tried this yet, but I have a quick question: can this be made in a bread maker? It looks delicious!
