Katie gave me her mom's bread machine roll recipe and I have been collecting compliments off it ever since. With soups, roasts, just about anything, who wouldn't LOVE some hot fresh rolls?! On Sunday, I throw all the ingredients in the bread machine and set the timer so they are perfectly proofed when I get home, 10 minutes of work, endless familial gratitude!

1 egg
1 cup + 5 TBS warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups flour
2 tsp yeast

Put in the bread machine in that order, mix on dough mode (oh, how I love my bread machine, I could never make bread products without it!). When done, pound into rolls (you can make 12 big babies in a 9X13 or 16ish more normal sized ones on a cookie sheet), flip-flop then in some melted butter. Cover with some plastic wrap and let rise to about double in size (1/2 hour or so - speed up the process by putting them in a cold oven with a bowl of hot water under them). Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. I slather more butter on top when they come out. The thought of these is making my mouth water. They are SO good and SO easy! My eternal gratitude Aunt Pat!!!
