We use these as hamburger buns, and also serve them anytime a meal calls for rolls. I've made them smaller to use as slider buns, and I've made them oblong to use for hot dogs or subs. It does require a bit more effort to make these than it does to just buy buns or rolls, but that effort is more than worthwhile.
Bread Machine Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls
(To print this recipe, click here)
Ingredients (serves 12)
- 1 1/2 T melted butter
- 1 c milk, scalded, then cooled
- 1/4 c water
- 1 egg
- 3 1/2 c flour (I use 2 c white whole wheat + 1 1/2 c bread flour)
- 1/4 c sugar
- 1 t salt
- 2 t yeast
- Add ingredients to bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer. For me, it's wet ingredients first, then dry ingredients, with the yeast on top. (And yes, you do want to scald the milk. Something about proteins and enzymes)
- Set bread machine to the dough cycle and start. Don't forget to check back after about 5 minutes to make sure everything's mixing correctly. Scrape down the sides, and add water if the dough is too dry, or flour if the dough is too wet.
- When the dough cycle is complete, punch down and turn out dough onto a floured surface. Cut into 12 even-sized pieces. Let rest for 10 minutes.
- When the resting period is done, shape into rolls and arrange in a greased 9x13" pan.
- Cover loosely with a towel and let rise until double. The length of time will depend on the temperature of your kitchen, but I generally let them rise for 30-60 minutes.
- Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Baste with melted butter, if desired (I never do).
For the authentic Texas Roadhouse experience, serve with Cinnamon Honey Butter.
Mix together 1/2 c. softened butter, 1/4 c. powdered sugar, 1/4 c. honey, and 1 t. cinnamon.
