Muffin Pan Dinner Rolls

60 Minute Dinner Rolls are soft and tender yeast dinner rolls that can be made from scratch – start to finish – in just one hour! A great easy dinner roll recipe.

What smells better than freshly baked bread (other than freshly baked cookies)? There’s pretty much nothing that smells better.

So, when we want fresh bread, but I didn’t plan ahead and start a loaf of no-knead bread the night before, this is my go-to recipe.

These 60 Minute Dinner Rolls are quick and tasty, and, from start to finish, they’re ready in about an hour (hence the name).

These are the perfect rolls for those nights when you want dinner ready.

No one will ever guess that they didn’t take you hours of kneading, rising, and prep.
