Tips: This was a great bread machine bread that I made to go with Chicken Wild Rice Soup. I used slightly less than one tablespoon of butter. Unless you measure your butter in measuring spoons, I think it's just your best guess as to where to cut the stick of butter to equal 4 1/2 teaspoons. If you have plans to make stir-fry or any other dish that called for plain rice, plan ahead and make a little extra then you'll have it ready to go when you're ready to make this bread.
