Image of Dinner Rolls: a quick microwave bread recipe provided with nutrition facts for dinner rolls
[Makes 24 rolls (2 1/2 inch round shape)]    Cooking time: 45 minutes

1 package (14 oz.) machine mix bread flour (white)
1 tablespoon (4 g) active dry yeast, included in bread mix
1 cup low-fat milk

1. Set aside 1/3 cup flour for flouring board.

2. Pour the milk into a microwave safe plastic bowl (7 cups).* Cover with a vented microwave lid and cook on HIGH (1200W) for 40 seconds until it reaches 75 - 85 degrees F. Cool milk, if it reaches over 85F. Yeast will not activate if milk is too hot.

3. Combine half of the remaining flour and milk. Beat with a wire whisk until it is smooth. Add the yeast and mix well.

4. Add the remaining flour and mix well with a wooden or rubber spatula until smooth. Shape into a ball.
