Herb Dinner Rolls

I recently saw a recipe for herb dinner rolls on my friend Marjie’s site which inspired me to make these rolls. I used my Mom’s Dinner Roll recipe and added some fresh basil, fresh parsley, and a bit of dried oregano to make these extremely delicious dinner rolls. They were so flavorful with the added herbs and a huge hit with my dinner guests. These rolls will make your holiday dinner extra special.

  1. These look soooo good! Much better than resturants version I’m sure they have more flavor! I want to make these but I don’t have a bread machine.. I’m thinking about buying one though but afraid their too expensive or won’t purchase the right type. What do you have? Also on the cloth part do you keep it on while baking? What does that do? thanks! 🙂

    1. Jessa,

      My bread machine is an Oster and I love it. You remove the cloth after they dough as risen. You bake them WITHOUT the cloth.


    1. Sorry I am not much help because I always use my bread machine but I am sure you can find the appropriate steps if you Google “how to make bread with a stand mixer”.

  2. Athena, I tried these herb rolls not using a bread maker and they turned out great! YUM! I proofed yeast in the 1cup warm water and added the sugar. Once its proofed and foamy (after 5-10 min) I added the egg which i scrambled first and the 2tbsp which I melted. While the yeast was proofing, I put 2 cups of flour in the mixer with the salt and herbs. I slowly added the yeast, eggs butter and sugar mixture. I added the rest of the flour as needed for the dough to become silky and supple and no longer sticky. I then transferred the dough to a greased glass bowl covered with plastic wrap and let it rise until it doubled, maybe an hour. After the dough rose, I punched down the dough, divided it into 15 peices and put it in a large greesed baking dish and let it rise again, covered, for 35 minutes then baked according to the origional directions. Yum!
