Texas Roadhouse Rolls Ingredients

To make these delicious rolls from scratch, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • active yeast: 1 package or 2 1/4 teaspoons (make sure it is fresh!)
  • warm water: approximately 100 degrees Fahrenheit to activate the yeast
  • milk: any variety is fine but 2% or whole milk preferred
  • butter: unsalted
  • flour: all purpose
  • sugar: to add a bit of sweetness
  • salt: to limit yeast growth and bring out flavor
  • egg: to act as a binding agent

And if you will be making the cinnamon butter to pair with them, you’ll need the following:

  • butter: unsalted
  • cinnamon: gives the butter that signature flavor
  • honey: adds a nice sweetness
  • powdered sugar: to make it light and fluffy

You could do this without a stand mixer, but the dough hook makes this job so much easier! If you don’t have a stand mixer, I highly recommend one. I love my Kitchenaid Artisan in Green Apple. The dough hook helps so much with making bread.

How to Make Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls

Making these amazing rolls at home isn’t as hard as you might think! Start by heating your milk either on the stove or in the microwave to 180 degrees Fahrenheit to scald the milk. I recommend doing this over the stove so you can keep a close eye on the temperature. Add 2 tablespoons of softened butter and let cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the yeast to warm water and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Let dissolve and get foamy. This will take at least 5 minutes.

Combine using your whisk or paddle attachment on your mixture. Add egg and beat until combined. Add 2 additional cups of flour, one at a time, scraping down the sides and mixing after each addition. Switch to the dough hook and add flour, 1/2 cup at a time on low speed until dough forms and pulls away from the sides. Knead the dough with the dough hook on medium until the dough is smooth, 3-4 minutes.

(Be sure to dust your hands as the dough will be sticky.) Form the dough into a ball and place in greased bowl.Turn over once to oil both sides of the dough. Cover and place in a warm place at least 1 hour or until doubled in size. You can also put it in the oven with the inside light left on if you have an older oven.

Using a dough scraper or pizza cutter cut out rectangles of dough about 2×3 inches. Take the rectangles and fold the short edges under, meeting in the middle to make a rounded shape on top. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Cover the rolls and let sit until doubled. How long this takes can really vary, depending how warm it is in your kitchen. Allow for anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour or more. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. If you let your rolls rise in the oven, be sure to remove the rolls first! Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until deep golden brown, approximately 11-13 minutes. (May take longer, depending upon your oven.) Remove and brush with melted butter.
