Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Have you ever been to Texas Roadhouse? Their rolls are UNREAL! These are very similar to those and my families new favorite homemade rolls. Our next door neighbor came over and had a few. She loved them! My husband cant wait to have sandwiches on them tomorrow and wants me to make another batch ASAP. I think I found my new go-to roll recipe.
2 teaspoon active dry yeast plus 1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1 cups milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
3-4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1. Add yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar to the warm water. Set aside.
2. Place milk in microwave for 45 seconds. Add butter to milk and stir in until butter is completely melted. Check the temperature of the milk, it should be lukewarm. If it is not lukewarm allow it to cool.
3. Once yeast has doubled in volume, add yeast mixture to milk mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the sugar and enough flour (about half) and mix until it reaches the consistency of a muffin batter. Let rest for 10 minutes.
4. Add the egg and salt to the mixture. Beat well. Add enough remaining flour to for a soft dough.
5. Knead dough in mixer with dough hook until smooth and satiny.
6. Cover and let rise in a warm area until doubled in size.
7. Once doubled in size, punch and let rest for 1- minutes.
8. On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into a long rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, cut the rectangle in half. Cut each half into six pieces.
9. Place on a greased baking sheet and let rise until doubled.
10. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
11. While hot, butter the tops of the rolls if desired.
