2 French Bread Rolls

One of my favorite go-to bread roll recipes is the french bread rolls. I love to use the bread machine to make sure they turn out perfect every time. Once I place all ingredients into the bread machine and the dough is made perfectly, I let it rise, and then punch it down. I then create balls of dough and let those rise on pyrex pans until doubled in size. After this, I bake in the oven for the set amount of time.

Now, if you don’t have a bread machine, you can still make them, but they may not turn out as perfectly, i’m just being honest. there is definitely a difference between bread machine rolls verses kneading the dough out yourself.  One reason this is my go-to recipe is because these are rolls without the use of butter. So if you’re looking for a “healthier” bread roll option that does not include butter, yet still so yummy, then try out this french bread roll recipe and check it out for pictures as well.
