Texas Roadhouse Rolls

Never eaten at this place but I noticed these rolls on a friends blog and gave them a try. They were quite tasty and enjoyed by everyone in the house. Even the dogs were fighting over them. I did make a mistake in making them though. In my haste to finish and do things with the family I left the salt out. This did not cause problems with the rising but I did have to cook them awhile longer to get them brown and they did taste slightly blah. The salt is a needed ingredient. Overall they were enjoyed and will be made again. I found this recipe at Sherri's blog,
TEXAS ROAD HOUSE SWEET YEAST ROLLS - From the trainer for all the bakers of the Texas Roadhouse chain (so they say)
1/2 sol. oz. cake of yeast or 1 pkg. active dry yeast (next time I think I will use 1 1/2 packets)
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups milk- scalded and cooled to lukewarm
3 tablespoons of melted butter - cooled
1/2 cup sugar
2 quart all purpose flour
--2 whole eggs
2 tsp. salt
Soften 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 soft dough. Sprinkle small amount of flour on counter and let dough rest.
Meanwhile, clean and dry bowl; grease clean surface of bow. Knead dough until smooth and satiny. Put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in bulk.
Punch down. Turn out on 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 F for 10-15 minutes (until golden brown). Baste immediately with butter
Yield: 5 to 6 dozen (depending on the size - I made mine kind of big and got about 3 dozen)

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. I made these last night, and let them rise on the baking sheet overnight in the off oven. I just covered them with a tea towel. In the morning, I preheated the oven and they turned out great. Kind of flat, so I've been slicing them horizontally and putting slices of ham in -- ham biscuits! thank you!

  2. I'm glad you liked them. Sorry they didn't rise like you had hoped.

  3. I am pretty sure that you need to add lemon juice to the mixture. The Texas Roadhouse baker I used to watch would use fresh squeezed lemon juice as part of the recipe.

  4. I started to make these and got confused at the "medium batter" could you please explain a little bit more what that is?

  5. A medium batter looks like a pancake batter. Sort of thick but not as thick as a bread dough.
