how to make Texas Roadhouse Rolls at home

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls are easy to make right in your own kitchen!

  1. Combine milk, yeast and 2 tsp of sugar. Proof for 5 minutes or until frothy. Add the eggs, remaining sugar and brown sugar and mix to combine. Mix in butter. Next add flour and salt.
  2. Swap your mixer attachment to a dough hook and knead on medium speed for 6 minutes, until the dough bounces back after pushing on it. Remove the bowl from the mixer and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  3. Turn out onto a clean floured surface. Roll the dough out into a rectangle about 1⁄2″ thick. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into strips, then cut into square or rectangle rolls. You should get about 40 rolls total.
  4. Spray a baking sheet with baking spray, then place the rolls on it, spacing them out 1⁄2″. Let the rolls rise for 30-45 minutes or until risen. Towards the end of the rising time preheat the oven to 350°.
  5. Place the rolls into the preheated oven on the middle rack.
  6. Bake for 35 minutes, until golden brown. For best results, turn the pan around mid-baking. Once baked, remove from the oven and place on a wire cooling rack. Brush the hot rolls with melted butter. Serve warm with cinnamon honey butter.

Tips

  • Having the correct temperature of milk is very important when making these rolls!
    • If your milk is too hot it will kill the yeast and you will need to start over. If it’s too cold, the yeast won’t activate. The ideal proofing temperature is between 105°-110°.
