Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Whenever I would go to Texas Roadhouse, I would fill up on the peanuts and rolls before my meal was even served! There was something so amazing about those rolls and the cinnamon honey butter just put them over the top. And, of course, I could never turn them down. But, with restaurants closed right now, the neverending basket of Texas Roadhouse Rolls is not an option, so I decided to make my own. I am not sure I should have, though…they were just as good and just as gone😊.
Texas Roadhouse Rolls Ingredients
Milk: I prefer to use whole milk in this recipe, but you can use skim or 2% as well. It should be heated to about 105-115°F to activate the yeast properly.
Flour: In this recipe, you will need bread flour. Bread flour has a higher protein than other flour (above 12%). It also gives this bread a chewier texture.
Butter: I use unsalted butter in both the rolls and the honey butter for this recipe.
How to Store
Store any leftover rolls in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. I do recommend room temperature storage over the refrigerator, as placing baked goods in the refrigerator often leads to them drying out faster.
How to Freeze
Allow the rolls to come to room temperature. Wrap each roll individually in plastic wrap, then store them in an airtight, freezer-safe container. Wrapping them individually will help to prevent freezer burn from occurring. If stored properly, these rolls can last up to two months in the freezer. Allow the rolls time to thaw completely before serving.
Texas Roadhouse Rolls
- 1 tablespoon water, warmed (about 105-115°F)
- 6 tablespoons (75 g) granulated sugar, divided
- 1 packet (2¼ teaspoons) active dry yeast
- 1 cup (245 g) whole milk, warmed (about 105-115°F)
- 7 tablespoons (99 g) unsalted butter, melted, divided
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 3 ½ cups (444.5 g) bread flour
CINNAMON HONEY BUTTER
- ¼ cup (½ stick / 57 g) unsalted butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, combine the water, 1 teaspoon of sugar, and yeast, letting it sit for about 5 minutes (or until sugar and yeast are dissolved). (Note, this will be a thick mixture)
- Add in the remaining sugar, milk, 6 tablespoons butter, and salt and mix until just combined.
- Add in the egg and mix to combine.
- Add the flour to the yeast mixture, and mix for about 3 minutes at medium-high speed. Scrape the dough into the center of the bowl.
- Switch out the paddle attachment for the dough hook. Knead the dough on low for 3-4 minutes.
- Lightly spray a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Place the dough into the bowl.
- Cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours (or until doubled in size).
- Lightly spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside
- Gently punch down on the risen dough to deflate it. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. (You can do this by continuing to divide the dough in half until you are down to 12 pieces. Or, roll the dough into a log and use a bench knife or stiff spatula to cut it into 12 pieces.)
- Round each piece into a smooth ball and place in the prepared baking dish, evenly spaced.
- Cover the rolls with a kitchen towel and let them rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or until about doubled.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F when the rolls are nearing the end of their rise time.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and brush with the remaining tablespoon of melted butter. Serve warm with the cinnamon honey butter.
CINNAMON HONEY BUTTER
- In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed, add the butter, confectioners' sugar, honey, and cinnamon. Beat the ingredients together until fully incorporated. Serve with the warm rolls.
