For Bread Machine Dinner Rolls
  1. Measure carefully, placing all ingredients except for melted butter in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle. Do not use delay cycle.
  2. Remove dough from the pan. I pour about 1 tablespoon of oil on my clean countertop and place my dough on it. Cover the surface lightly with oil and then cut it into quarters. Next cut each quarter into four pieces and roll it into a ball.
  3. Lightly grease a 10" cast iron skillet and place a bowl in the middle of it upside down. Place 14 rolls around the outside edge of the skillet, (between the skillet and the bowl). Cover with a towel and place in a warm place to rise, about 30-40 minutes, until double in size.
  4. Remove the bowl and fill the center with Bacon Swiss Dip.
