Nothing says “welcome to my home” better than the smell of freshly baked rolls. I can almost smell these rolls just thinking about them. They are SO good…some of the best rolls ever! Make them for your next celebration, birthday party, dinner party or holiday gathering!
Best and Easiest Dinner Roll Recipe
1 cup whole milk or canned evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter (one stick)
1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp salt
4 cup bread flour
2 tablespoons yeast
1-2 tbsp water if needed)
9 x 13 pan
*Please note, if you have a bread machine add all ingredients to the machine and use dough cycle.
Warm the milk to about 95 degrees F.
Mix all of the ingredients together (except the water). Once mixing if the dough seems dry add 1 tablespoon of water. Add the second tablespoon if really needed, but usually not necessary.
Once all of the ingredients are fully mixed place the dough on a lightly floured surface.
Knead until the dough for approximately 7 minutes. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a damp towel. Place the bowl in a warm area.
Allow the dough to rise until it has almost doubled in size (about 1 hour).
Grease your 9×13 pan.
Split dough in half and then split those halves in half again so you have 4 even sections.
Divide each section in half again and then divide into 3 even balls. You should then have 24 balls of dough.
Shape dough balls in your hand by rolling. Continue until all rolls are smooth and ball shaped.
Place the rolls in your buttered pan. It’s easiest to make 6 rows of rolls, 4 rolls deep.
Cover the rolls with a damp towel and let rise in a warm area for 15 to 20 minutes. You can let them rise for up to an hour if needed. The rolls should have doubled in size.
Remove the damp towel and bake at 375 degrees F for 14 to 17 minutes or until the rolls are light golden brown. The color will be very light and subtle so make sure you don’t over cook.
Yields 24 rolls.
