One thing you should know about us is that we LOVE bread! We go though loaves and loaves per week. But with every meal we need some sort of bread and these Texas Roadhouse Rolls are a favorite.
I love how easily they come apart. And we love using them for Chicken Sandwich buns, try it out and believe me!!!
Texas Roadhouse Rolls
- 4 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
- 1/2 cup Warm Water
- 2 cups Whole Milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
- 3 Tablespoons Butter, melted and cooled slightly
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 7 cups All-Purpose Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 2 teaspoons Salt
- Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar, in the bowl of a stand mixer. Once yeast has dissolved, add milk, sugar and 2 cups of flour. Beat thoroughly on medium speed. Let stand until foamy (about 2 minutes). Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well.
- Add in another 5 cups of flour, slowly, to form a soft dough. *NOTE* Do not use more than 7 cups of flour total. The dough will be very soft and somewhat sticky, you may think it needs more flour, but it does not.
- Knead dough on a floured surface, until it is smooth and satiny. ( I kneaded mine in my stand mixer with the dough hooks, for about 4 minutes) If you knead it with your hands, you will need to grease up your hands with some cooking spray, to help the dough from not sticking to your hands.
- Once kneaded, place into a large, greased bowl. Place dough inside, and turn over to grease top. *NOTE* Again, dough will be sticky so you may need to grease your hands to handle while putting dough in the bowl to let rise. Cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
- Once dough has risen, remove from bowl and place onto a lightly floured surface. Lightly flour a rolling pin, and roll dough out into a large rectangle, that is a 1/2 inch thick. Carefully handling dough, fold the rectangle in half, to form a smaller, 1 inch thick rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, slice dough into 24 large squares or 48 small squares. Place squares onto greased cookie sheets. Cover, and let rise again, until doubled in size.
- Bake rolls at 350 for 16-18 minutes, or until lightly golden on top. Remove from oven, and immediately brush tops with butter.
Here is how you shape the rolls. First, you place your dough on a floured surface.
Then with a rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangle shape about 1/2″ thick. My kids love helping in the kitchen…
Next fold the dough in half and slightly roll the top.
Then using a pizza cutter, cut the dough and place onto baking sheet. I cut mine slightly bigger because like I said I use them for Chicken Sandwich buns.
Now enjoy a delicious roll that pulls apart perfectly… Oh and if you did not get why they are called Texas Roadhouse Rolls it’s because they are a copycat recipe from the restaurant. And that is my favorite part about going to that restaurant but now you can have them in your own home.
