A good recipe for The Best Dinner Rolls Ever is always a must-have in your recipe book. Whether you are organizing a family get together, hosting a party, or preparing a holiday spread, dinner rolls set the table complete. There is nothing quite like baking homemade bread that’s fluffy as clouds that melt in your mouth. This recipe uses rapid rise instant yeast, which means there is no waiting time of endless hours for the dough to rise. If you want, you can add dough enhancer to this recipe which helps in tenderizing the gluten in bread and gives it the elasticity required in soft bread. You can find dough enhancer at your local grocery or baking store. If not you can easily find it online as well. The rest of the bread ingredients include everyday items like flour, butter eggs etc.
