Anyone who knows me decently well knows about my love affair with bread and butter. My friends learned this during the (billions) of weddings we went to last year. When we get to that reception, my eyes dart RIGHT to the tabletops. Not to admire the centerpieces, or to check out the color scheme, or to see where we are sitting… but to see if there is butter on the table. Because if there is butter, there is a 99% chance that there will be dinner rolls. And dinner rolls, make me happier than they should. (Clearly.) These Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls are no exception either. They’re so soft, sweet, and brushed with warm, melted butter. Perfection.

This copycat Texas Roadhouse roll recipe is actually pretty easy. The only hard part is waiting for the dough to rise a couple times. Waiting is boring. I decided to watch Sister Act II while the dough rose- and I can’t believe I just admitted that. Am I the only one who thinks that movie is awesome?  If anyone else can come forward with the same confession, you’d make my day week.

The Copycat Texas Roadhouse honey butter that goes with these rolls is really easy to whip up too, (hey, something to do while you wait for that dough to rise.)

Although the recipes makes 24 rolls, they last like… 2 days in our house. My husband pops them in like popcorn, and we already went over my bread and butter issues, so. Although I did manage to give a few to my friend- she’s preggers. I told her that they were buns for her oven. (God I’m funny.)

If your dough doesn’t 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
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher 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, 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.
