To make very quick homemade dinner rolls, dissolve 1 1/4-ounce package of yeast and 2 tablespoons sugar in 1 cup of water. Add 1 beaten egg, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 1/4 cups flour, and allow the mixture rise for 15 minutes. Bake the rolls in a muffin tin.
Add the egg, salt and flour after the yeast starts to bubble, and spoon the batter into greased muffin tins. Allow the dough to rise for 15 to 20 minutes, and bake the rolls for 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
To make Bisquick yeast rolls, combine 2 1/2 cups of Bisquick, 1 package active dry yeast and 3/4 cup water, and beat the mixture vigorously. Knead the dough about 20 times, on a smooth surface dusted with Bisquick. Shape the rolls, and place them on a greased baking sheet. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth, and allow them to rise for about one hour. Bake the rolls for 10 to 15 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and brush them with butter after baking.
To make savory dinner rolls, combine 1 16-ounce package of Pillsbury baking mix, 1 cup hot water, 2 tablespoons melted butter and 1 large egg.

Cover the rolls with plastic wrap, allow to rise until doubled, and bake rolls at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 16 to 18 minutes.
