These are so good, I made them when my children were younger.  So good the next day with jam or jelly on them.  They are not meant to brown like a yeast roll would.  Cooking more than the 15 minutes and they will be too dry and over cooked.  Follow Paula's directions to a tee and they won't fail...trick is not to 'over mix' item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm really not sure why everyone is complaining about it being bland. It's a very BASIC recipe and obviously you can and SHOULD add flavoring as you see fit. For me I baked it as instructed but the last 5-10 minutes of baking I glazed the top of the rolls with a blend of melted butter, olive oil, and rosemary. I made double batch and these little guys were gone FAST. My only complaint is the time!!! 15 minutes cooked the bread in the middle but did not brown properly (on bottom or top. I actually baked them a total of 30 minutes hence glazing at the 10 minute mark. Very good recipe though, thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these rolls just the other day and honestly thought they were bland. I couldn't really taste the mayo, it mostly acted to make the rolls have the texture of biscuits. I made them a second time and added a little salt and brushed butter on top before putting them in the oven but still they were just as bland. The best thing about them I thought was that they were super quick and easy, but that doesn't really make up for taste for me! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The rolls were fast to make and tasted wonderful. However, the cooking time for this recipe, did not work for me. It really depends on the oven being used. I had to add another 15 minutes to the cooking time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quick, Easy, & Delish item not reviewed by moderator and published
my family and i love these rolls. they r supper easy,great for working parents.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
SUPER easy to whip up! However, I didn't have self-rising flour, so I added 3 teaspoons of baking power and 1 teaspoon of salt. Still, super easy. I threw them in the oven and then started reading the reviews! That's when I panicked! I baked them for 15 minute and didn't achieve the light brown tops. I lifted one up after 15 minutes and saw that it was light brown and pulled them out of the oven. I then sampled one a few minutes later and was SO pleased. I don't know what I was worried about! I will for sure make these again. Just as the recipe says, and I might do the substitute for self-rising flour, I was that happy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wouldnt consider them rolls but I would consider them good bicuits. Maybe with a little gravy they would make a great breakfast! item not reviewed by moderator and published
these were so simple to make and they bake so quickly. although i kept them in for a few extra minutes to get them browned but they didn't. tasty and easy. def going to make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It is just my husband and my self so I made 1/2 recipe. They were great!! After the first time I now make them when the whole family is here . At a spur of a moment you can whip them up. Dorothy Boardman, Ohio item not reviewed by moderator and published
I might make these again -- the teenage boys at the Thanksgiving table ate them. But then again, what didn't they eat? IF I try this recipe again, I would blend all the liquid ingredients together and add them to the pre-shifted dry stuff. (Not they way the recipe reads). It is really a challenge to mix everything adequately and not create building mortar. And then maybe the teenage boys wouldn't be tempted to THROW the rolls before they ate them! (It was quite a party!) item not reviewed by moderator and published
So glad I looked at all your comments first. I made the following changes or additions: ADD 2 T cold butter, and 1/4 cup shredded cheese, EXTRA 1/4 t baking powder & 1/4 t salt (self-rising flour contains baking powder & salt). CHANGE to 3 T mayo & 1 T sour cream. Baked for 25 min. Rolls were perfect & still easy, however I could't have done it without the rest of you reviewers ~ so 4 stars. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
What makes these rolls so great is the ease in making them! They have few ingredients and can be whipped up in no time for dinner any night. They are also delicious!! My family of 5 LOVED them (especially me). Try them. Thanks Paula!!! Karen, Pittsburgh item not reviewed by moderator and published

easy to prepare with on hand ingredients. My family loved them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not only are these rolls really easy to make, they came out light and airy, and really tasty. I used skim milk because that's what I had at the time. I also added about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and I used a muffin top pan instead of a conventional muffin pan. I hate muffin bottoms :o) Very time I watch Paula I just want to run and make something she just prepared. This time I actually did... You go Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so good and very quick and easy. I added butter and one more tbs of sugar. It was so so good. My three year could not stop asking for them item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love these rolls. The only problem I have is getting them to brown. They come out of the oven white. I make them in the cupcake pan and also free form. They are so easy, they can be made during the week while making dinner. I use low fat mayonaise and splenda. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy to throw together at the last second! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I usually love Paula's recipes but had to throw out these rolls. They tasted of mayonaise and blagh flavor and were more like a biscuit. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Looked delicous on the show. They were incredibly simple and easy, but the taste- not so great. My husband who is not very picky didn't like them either. Won't be making them again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
As a last minute Easter dinner filler, I made these rolls, and they were a hit. Delicious and moist, everyone wanted seconds, but not everyone got seconds. A second batch will be in order for the next function. If you like light and fluffy, be forwarned. These may not be the rolls for you. They were definitely more dense than the store-bought variety. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is by far the easiest recipe for rolls I have eer tried. They turned out great. My family loves them. I substituted sour cream for the mayo the second time I made them and they were even lighter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm sorry, but these rolls were awful. They never browned and the consistency was heavy and dense. They looked much like an oversized spit ball. I love Paul, so I was very shocked and disappointed with this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
love these. yummy and effortless! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I like that you can whip these up quickly. They are a little bland but I wasnt expecting anything more. They could be easily seasoned with herbs for a savory meal or with lemon zest for strawberry shortcake. Will make them again and will recommend them to family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This are definitely "easy" rolls. But i felt them to be salty. They taste better when they are sweet. So i added 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I discovered this recipe about two weeks ago, and have already made it 4 times. I usually double the recipe as it only makes six, but they don't ever last long around here. The last time I made them in the place of biscuits for a Saturday morning "biscuits" and gravy breakfast. What a hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published

That pretty much sums it up. These are so delicious and so simple!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I know you look at this recipe and you think mayo in rolls well, I had to try them and all of us think these are really fluffy, light biscuits and very easy to make. I'm really not a biscuit maker, anyone could make these. I did have to make one change, needed to bake them for 25 minutes in a silcone muffin pan. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these rolls in a matter of moments, but they tasted like it took all evening. Anyone will love these - they taste SO homemade, like you slaved over the oven. Only 4 ingredients which makes it soooo quick. Loved them - thank you Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious!! Very easy to make. If you have trouble browning them just put a little melted butter on the top and put under the broiler for just a minute. They are wonderful! Thanks Paula!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I give it a two because it was easy to prepare. My family took one bite and hated them. It is really more of a bisquit consistency then a roll. Won't be making these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I will definitely make these often, but be very, very sure that you use the SELF-RISING flour! The flavor from the mayo makes them a little special. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and boys LOVE bread. This is such an easy recipe and you will have most of the ingredients without having to make a trip to the store! They gobbled up these tasty rolls before I could get them to the table. Thanks Ms. Paula~ you are the best! item not reviewed by moderator and published
these rolls are great, an easy. have been makeing them for years. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm a caterer - but NOT a baker! Baking anything is always a struggle for me. So I resort to bakeries and that gets expensive - and when you're in business for yourself, every penny counts! These rolls are even easy enough for ME - and yummy enough for me to serve! Plus they cost virtually pennies to make!!! Yay Paula! Another winner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are fabulous and my girls had a wonderful time making them. Thank you Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were good...more like a biscuit than a roll. They literally took 3 minutes to mix up, 12 minutes to bake. The only alteration I made was to add a pinch of salt to batter. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was a little hesitant at first to try these since it had mayo included, it just sounded a little odd. But to my surprise, these rolls are really great. I should not have doubted one of Ms. Paula's recipes!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm pretty neutral about these rolls, but my family loves them! They are a cross between a biscuit and a muffin. I do love how easy they are to make, and fix them often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very bland, and waiting for them to brown held up the meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
For Thanksgiving and again at Christmas, I make the rolls for our family's gatherings, which usually numbers 35-40 people. These rolls were indeed easy. Since many of us enjoy eating a slice of ham or turkey on our rolls, I made them by dropping heaping spoonfuls onto cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart, instead of in the muffin pan. They cooked quickly, looked beautiful and got rave reviews in the taste department. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the same mistake in not using Self Rising Flour the first time. Second time, using the right flour, the rolls were just excellent. Makes exactly 12 and are just as advertised.....easy! Thanks so much, Paula! But, I have a question. I re-heated the few that were leftover the next day and found that they crumbled....like cake can & will. What can I do to prevent that from happening? Thanks for any input. Love the show. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried these recently and I will never again buy supermarket rolls for dinners! The best part is that they are so easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This reminds me of the southern yeast biscuits of 20 years ago, without the work. Fantastic quick dinner bread. You can almost taste the missing yeast. Try it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
not great. But, very fast and easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
easy and wonderful item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved these rolls -- so easy to make and so tasty. My husband says they remind him of cornbread (consistency-wise). If you try them, BE SURE to use Self-Rising flour. I didn't on my first try and made pucks. When I actually followed the recipe and used the right flour, they turned out GREAT. Very very tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Wonderfully rich and full of flavor. Goes well with soups for Fall as well as the colder Winter months. I have shared this recipe with several of my friends and will be trying it for the first time for family up North! Thanks Paula for sharing such a great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yes, these were easy to prepare, but I would rather purchase frozen rolls than to make these. I didn't care for the texture or the taste for that matter. This is the first recipe out of many of Paula's recipes that I have not liked. So I guess that's not too bad. Paula is still my favorite by far. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is really easy, but I would have rather picked another recipe that was a little harder to have better rolls. They were good, but not the best. But I still love Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy Rolls is right! They were delicious and no leftovers here. Another wonderful recipe from Paula. THANKS. item not reviewed by moderator and published
