Texas Roadhouse Rolls – Copycat Recipe

adapted fromGood Stuff Maynard
4 tsp. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
2 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
3 Tbl. of melted butter, slightly cooled
1/2 c. sugar
2 quarts all purpose flour (7-8 cups)
2 whole eggs
2 tsp. salt
Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar. Add yeast, milk, sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter. Beat thoroughly. Let stand until light and foamy. Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well.
Add enough flour to form a soft dough. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto counter and let dough rest. Meanwhile, grease a large bowl. Knead dough until smooth and satiny (or put in your kitchen-aid, use the dough hook and knead for about five minutes.)and put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top.Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk. Punch down. Turn out onto a floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes. Shape dough into desired forms. Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Baste immediately with butter. Yield: 5 to 6 dozen.
You can’t have the rolls without the butter, so I went searching for the butter recipe, and it is SOOOO easy I was shocked. I got this recipe from Food.com
 Texas Roadhouse Butter


  1. In a small bowl, with a handmixer, beat butter till fluffy.
  2. Add confectioner’s sugar at a time, blending well.
  3. Add cinnamon to mixture and blend well.
    Enjoy some super soft and yummy rolls!

I was just at Texas Roadhouse tonight and when I asked for more of the butter, the waitress said "Do you mean the honey cinnamon butter" I think their butter must be made with honey instead of confectioners sugar. Just thought I would let you know.

Saw this recipe on Facebook and went straight to the kitchen, pulled out all the ingredients and started mixing. After about 3 hours from start to finish they came out of the oven a beautiful golden brown and were absolutely delicious (even if I did make them). I will definitely be making these again. Wasn't complicated just a little time consuming but anything worth eating is worth the effort. Thanks for sharing....
