Anyone who knows me decently well knows about my love affair with bread and butter. I’m not even a baker at heart, but I somehow transform into one whenever I decide to make these rolls. Luckily, this recipe is pretty easy and you don’t have to be an expert baker, (by any means), to tackle this recipe!

Can These Be Made Ahead of Time?

Yes! Here’s how to make these rolls ahead of time:

  • Bake for no more than 12 minutes, before the tops start to brown too much.
  • Don’t top them with the melted butter yet. Let them come to room temperature and store them in an airtight container.
  • When ready to serve, bake for a few minutes at 350°, until the tops are golden brown.
  • Top with melted butter and serve!

How to Make Dough Rise:

If you’re baking on a chilly Fall or Winter day, it might be tougher to get your dough to rise as it needs to do so in a warm place. These tricks can get you out of a bind, just note that it may take longer for your dough to rise if these methods are needed:

Method #1: (👉I like this method best)Preheat the oven to 315 degrees and place the bowl on top of a warm spot on the oven. For me, the warmest spot is right in the front of the oven between the front two burners.

Method #2: Place a baking tray on the bottom rack in the oven. Remove the top rack. Boil water and pour it into the tray, then place the bowl of dough on top and close the door.

-Method #3: (Assuming you have a warm place for the dough to rise but it still isn’t)-Take a new package of yeast and mix it with 1/4 cup of warm water and 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. Let it sit for 10 minutes until it starts to foam. Knead the yeast mixture into the dough, and place it in a warm place to rise.

These sweet and buttery Copycat Texas Roadhouse rolls are just like from the restaurant itself! They have a hint of sweetness and pair perfectly with homemade honey butter.

Ingredients
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon Active Dry Yeast or 1 packet
  • 1 ¼ cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 4 Tablespoons melted Butter, separated
  • 1 large Egg at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups Flour
Instructions
  1. Bring the milk to a boil. Remove it from heat and let it reduce lukewarm.

  2. Mix the milk, yeast, and honey in a small bowl until well combined. Let it sit for 5 minutes.

  3. In a large bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of the butter, the milk mixture, the room temperature egg, and 2 cups of flour. Mix slowly until smooth. (Use a mixer with a dough hook if you have one, otherwise it works by hand.) Gradually add the remaining 2 cups of flour and mix until a dough has formed.

  4. Add salt, and mix/knead for 8 minutes. Then drop the dough onto a floured surface and knead for a few more minutes.

  5. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray and drop the dough inside. Cover the bowl (plastic wrap or a damp cloth works) and let it rise for an hour in a warm place.

  6. Spray 2 cookie sheets with vegetable oil. Punch down the dough and roll it out on a flat, floured surface until it’s about ½ inch thick. Fold it in half and gently seal.

  7. Cut into 24 squares of even size and place on the cookie sheets. Cover them and let them rise for about 40 minutes, until doubled in size.

  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top is a light golden brown.

  9. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and brush the top of the rolls.
