The bread is nearly as good as the main event at some restaurants. If everyone is truly honest with themselves, they would all admit they go to Texas Roadhouse for the rolls. The Texas Roadhouse is known for its yeast rolls – The best rolls out there!

I also confess that I go to Outback for this amazing honey mollases bread and Olive garden for these delicious Garlic parmesan breadsticks.

The best delicious, soft, and fluffy homemade dinner rolls that melt in your mouth and taste just like Texas Roadhouse Rolls! They are an incredible addition to any meal.
If you have ever been to Texas Roadhouse and tried their soft and fluffy bread rolls for yourself, you know why everyone goes crazy for their heartwarming taste. If you haven’t, then it’s about time to recreate those flavours at home.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Dough at bread maker + waiting time: 3 hours 10 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours 35 minutes
Servings: 32 Rolls



  • 1 1/4 cups Milk - 80-90°F/26-32°C
  • 3 tbsp Butter - room temperature
  • 3 tbsp Honey
  • 1 Egg - room temperature
  • 4 cups Bread flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 1/4 tsp Active dry yeast


  • 1-2 tbsp Butter - melted


Using the dough setting and hand shaping

  • Place all ingredients for the dough in a bread machine in the order listed above (or specified for your bread maker).
  • Use the dough setting.
  • Check the dough consistency during the kneading cycle. If needed, add more flour or liquid.
  • Prepare baking sheets. Line with parchment paper or grease bottom and sides well and set aside.
  • When dough setting finishes, remove dough.

Second rise

  • Remove dough from the bread machine and divide the dough into two balls.
  • Fold the dough according to instructions and let it rise.

  • Before shaping the loaves, let it rise for about 30 minutes to 1 hour or until about doubled in size, in a lightly greased bowl covered. Resting allows the gluten to relax and makes handling easier.

Shaping the dough

  • Spray 2 large bowls with cooking spray and drop the dough balls inside. Cover the bowls (plastic wrap or a damp cloth works) and let it rise for an hour in a warm (25-30°C/80-85°F) place.
  • Roll each ball out on a silicone mat (or flat, floured surface) until it’s about 13mm/½ inch thick. Fold it in half and gently seal.
  • Cut into 16 even size squares and place each 16 on two cookie sheets with parchment paper (or lightly greased).
  • Note: use a pizza cutter for quick, easy cutting without tearing the dough, which a knife would do.
  • Keep all the rolls with about a 5cm/2” distance between them.
  • Cover them and let them rise for 40-50 minutes at a warm place (25-30°C/80-85°F) until doubled in size.


  • Preheat oven to 180-190°C/350-375°F and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top is a light golden brown. Rotate the baking sheets halfway through.
  • Brush the top of the freshly baked rolls with melted butter.
  • Remove immediately from pans and let cool on a rack for at least 15 minutes before slicing. Leaving them on the pan to cool could result in a soggy bottom crust.
  • Serve warm and fresh with Copycat Texas Roadhouse cinnamon honey Butter.



Make-Ahead Method

Prepare dough and refrigerate overnight

Prepare rolls, let them rise twice, cover with plastic food wrap, and refrigerate overnight until ready to bake.
Remove from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. Then bake as outlined.

Bake and Reheat

Bake for no more than 12 minutes before the tops start to brown too much.
Do NOT top them with the melted butter yet. Let them come to room temperature and store them in an airtight container.
When ready to serve, bake for a few minutes at 180°C/350°F until the tops are golden brown.
Top with melted butter and serve!

Freeze unbaked rolls

Freeze unbaked rolls for up to 1 month.
Arrange on a baking sheet and cover them. Let them thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
Bake as instructed.


If you have any leftovers (doubtful, but it happens sometimes), you can store thoroughly cooled rolls is in an airtight container or plastic bag or wrapped in foil on the counter at room temperature for about 3-5 days.
Cooling them first is essential, so you don’t trap them in excess condensation.
I do NOT suggest storing them in the refrigerator. The refrigerator tends to dry the bread out and become stale faster than at room temperature. So, the counter or a breadbox works best for storage. Keep freshly baked rolls in a cool, dry area.
Freeze in a freezer bag or airtight container for up to 6 months.
They can be thawed right on the counter when ready to eat.

Recipe Variations

You can customize the flavour of these rolls by adding some other ingredients, like sesame seeds, or the butter brushed on top of the rolls can be infused with garlic flavour or cinnamon honey.
  • For the sesame seeds, brush the dough with a white egg wash and sprinkle the sesame seeds before baking.
  • Add egg (or yolk) wash before baking for a golden-brown colour.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet first and add 2-3 garlic cloves for the garlicky butter. Sauté these cloves for 3 minutes until garlic turns golden brown. Then remove the garlic from the butter and allow it to cool down. Now use this butter to brush your freshly baked Texas rolls.
  • And the cinnamon honey butter is just what these roadhouse rolls love! Spread this butter over the top a warm Texas roll, and you have the MOST fantastic combination ever!

Cinnamon honey butter

If you’ve been to Texas Roadhouse, you probably won’t be able to tell the difference between their delicious honey & cinnamon butter and this. If you’ve never been there, you have to try this. The sweet cinnamon/honey/butter combo is to die.
It tastes perfectly with various bread, rolls, muffins, pancakes, toast, corn on the cob, mixed vegetables, baked potatoes, and even sweet potatoes.
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick Softened, but don’t melt the butter to make it easier to mix. Ensure that it has been at room temperature for at least an hour. Do NOT microwave it to achieve this, as it will mess with the consistency. To ensure that your butter is creamy and smooth, use high-quality butter. Unsalted is best; salted butter is acceptable to use. For a delicious combination of salty and sweet, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt or use salted butter.)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar (You’ll want to use powdered sugar to ensure as smooth a spread as possible without making it grainy like sugar and provides fluff.)
  • 1/4 cup honey (The star ingredient of our butter! It helps to thicken the spread. You can substitute equal parts maple syrup if you’d like.)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (This will give your butter so much flavour. It adds a nice little spicy punch.)
Mix all ingredients with an electric mixer until it's well blended, creamy, and smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use and enjoy!


You can store the honey butter in the refrigerator for a week. You can even freeze it by taking chilled honey butter, placing it in between some wax paper and wrapping plastic wrap around it.

The dough can also be made using a mixer. Just knead the dough with the dough hook for about 8-10 minutes on a low setting. When kneading by hand: about 10-12 minutes.
