Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls

These Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls are brushed with sweet honey butter and can be made in a bread machine or by hand! A perfect side dish idea for holidays and family dinners!


Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cup Milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoons melted Butter, separated
  • 1 large Eggat room temperature
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 4 cups all-purpose Flouror Bread Flour
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon Active Dry Yeastor 1 packet

Instructions

  • If using a bread machine, see next section below.
  • Bring the milk to a near boil. Remove it from heat when you see it begin to steam and small bubbles form on the side of the pan. Let it reduce to lukewarm, between 80-90 degrees.
  • Mix the milk, yeast, and honey in a small bowl until well combined. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Add salt, and mix/knead for 8 minutes. Then drop the dough onto a floured surface and knead for a few more minutes.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cut into 24 squares of even size and place on 2 lightly greased cookie sheets. Cover them and let them rise for 30-40 minutes,, until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top is a light golden brown.
  • Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and brush the top of the rolls.
  • Serve with Copycat Texas Roadhouse Butter.

If using a Bread Machine:

  • Bring the milk to a near boil. Remove it from heat when you see it begin to steam and small bubbles form on the side of the pan. Let it reduce to lukewarm, between 80-90 degrees.
  • Add the ingredients to the bread machine in the order listed in the ingredient section of this recipe card. If your manual indicates a different order, follow that.
  • Set the bread machine to the dough cycle, let it do the work from there.
  • Once complete, 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.
  • 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.
  • Cut into 24 squares of even size and place on 2 lightly greased cookie sheets. Cover them and let them rise for 30-40 minutes,, until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top is a light golden brown.
  • Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and brush the top of the rolls. Serve with Copycat Texas Roadhouse Butter.

Notes

Subbing Instant/Rapid Rise Yeast for Active Dry:

  • Cooks Illustrated recommends using 25% less yeast if using Instant instead of Active Dry.
  • In this recipe, that equates to 1 + 3/4 teaspoons.
  • Combine the yeast with the flour instead of adding it to the warm milk.
  • Proceed as outlined, no need to let the milk stand for 5 minutes after combining it with the honey.
  • Bread flour or all-purpose flour both work well in this recipe. 
  • Make sure your yeast is fresh and not expired!

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: 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.
