STEP THREE: Add milk and mayonnaise to the mixing bowl and stir until all ingredients are combined.
STEP FOUR: Divide bread dough batter into equal portions between 12 greased muffin pan cavities.

If you would like to brown the tops, use a pastry brush to spread melted butter over the top of each roll.
STEP SIX: Place on the top shelf under the broiler for an additional three to five minutes until the tops of the rolls are browned.
STEP SEVEN: Allow dinner rolls to cool for five minutes in the pan.
STEP EIGHT: Remove from tin and place baked rolls in a serving basket to keep warm until serving.
