Homemade Dinner Rolls

Believe it or not, dinner rolls are way easier than you may have  thought. They’re buttery, soft, and seriously the best bread around!

Whether it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just a great weeknight meal, homemade bread just makes the meal.


– whole milk – sugar – active yeast – unsalted melted butter – sea salt

Add  the 1 ½ cups hot milk, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and yeast to a standing  mixer with the hook attachment. Whisk with a whisk until combined and let it sit for 4-6 minutes or when a raft forms.

Add the remaining sugar, 7 tablespoons of melted butter, and sea salt. Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the flour in 4 or so batches until combined. Add 2 eggs and then knead for 3-5 minutes.

Cover and let rise until it has doubled in size for 60 minutes. Punch  down the dough and form 20 small golf ball-sized dough balls and place  1” apart in a cookie sheet tray.

Cover with a towel and let rise for 30 more minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining egg and 2 tablespoons of whole milk until combined.

Brush  the tops of the bread with the egg wash and bake at 350° for 25-30  minutes or until browned on top and soft and cooked in the middle.
