  1. Gee, I could almost smell those rolls. Homemade bread of any kind is my weakness. Now I could walk by three tables of dessert and never see them if there was bread on the next table. Yum.

  3. They look yummy. Our one daughter brought a loaf of homemade grain bread and some hot rolls yesterday for our dinner. They were very good. She also brought a lemon meringue pie, and my Mother brought an apricot pie. Both were Delicious.

  15. Those rolls look so good they are making my mouth water. Their size makes me think of the yummy yeast rolls the lunchroom at my elementary school used to make. They were heavenly. Bet your guests were loving them.

  21. Yum! They sound heavenly, and with the photo I can almost taste them. I'm lazy - most of my bread-making is done in the bread machine, but you're really tempting me to try these!

  23. I just wanted to comment and warn people not to try to make these with a hand mixer. I burned mine out. However, my hub liked the rolls so much that I finally cajoled him into me getting the holy grail of small kitchen appliances: a KitchenAid stand mixer!

    And Betsy, since I get so many great recipes from you, let me pass on onto you. It's not one of my own creation but still yummy:

    This would also work great in a crock pot, but I would still want to brown the sausage in the pan. I made it up to where you add the noodles in the morning, put it in the fridge so I could go spend the afternoon volunteering, took it out, reheated and added the noodles when I got back. It was so nice going out knowing dinner was practically done.

  24. Trishy...oh, so sorry about the hand mixer! But so glad you got the KitchenAid...that's what I have and it is wonderful..makes things so easy and fast. And glad you liked the rolls. I'm going to check out your recipe here! I, too, love things that you can do ahead...makes dinner time much less hectic! Thanks!
