A popular delicious food? Challenge accepted!
I LOVE to cook! I also love to cook BETTER than someone else. That sounds harsh, but I just like good food. And hearing praises of my food haha! Okay..kinda harsh.
So I don’t have any particular recipes until I perfect something. Once it’s perfected, it’s written down and placed in my drawer of recipes. My pride and joy that I’ll pass down to my daughter in law the day my 3 year old grows up and marries…
Making Texas Roadhouse Rolls have been a pretty difficult feat. I’ve been trying for 5 solid years. The closest I’ve come to them, my husband said they tasted like something Texas Roadhouse would poop out…that’s my dearest!
This time around, he ate the roll and butter in 0.03 seconds. He came to me and gave me the Japanese bow of respect. Then snatched 2 more rolls and retreated back to his online test. He later told me about how crazy identical they were!
So here I am to share my recipe!!
- 1 cup warm milk (body temperature)
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (or 1 package)
- 1/3 cup sugar (real sugar)
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for the board
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup real butter
- 1 teaspoon salt
Honey Cinnamon Butter
- 1 cup softened real butter
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
(I dumped all of the ingredients into my bread machine and pressed “dough”. But you can make this the old fashioned way)
In a small bowl, stir together the warm milk, sugar, and yeast. Allow the yeast to proof and begin to activate while you prepare the other ingredients. Using a stand mixer or your super strong arm, combine the flour, egg, 1/3 cup melted butter, and salt. Add the milk mixture and process until you have a smooth dough. Note: It will be stickier than regular bread dough. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turn the dough to grease all sides, and cover with a towel. Let rise until it has doubled in size.
When the dough has doubled, punch it down and turn it out on a floured board (This is where you take it out of the bread machine after it beeps). Let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out the dough into a large, flat rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 16 portions with a sharp knife (or pizza roller) and place on a greased baking sheet and let rise again, until doubled.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake the rolls for 10 minutes on the greased baking sheet. It’s important that the pan is greased and not floured. I hope I made that clear!
The rolls will be light brown when they’re ready to be removed from the oven. In my propane oven they went for 14 minutes. So I said 10 minutes to be safe and you WATCH! These are tooooo good to ruin. You can brush the tops with butter when they’re fresh from the oven for the extra goodness.
I wish I had a picture to post, but they don’t last long…So why don’t you post your picture when you make them!! Yay!
