Copycat Texas Roadhouse Dinner Rolls and Cinnamon Honey Butter

These Copycat Texas Roadhouse Dinner Rolls are so soft and the Cinnamon Honey Butter puts them over the top! I use a bread machine to cut the active work down to 10 minutes which includes shaping the rolls. These are simple enough for any dinner but amazing enough for Thanksgiving Dinner! We love them piping hot just like at the Roadhouse but they also hold well leftover which the restaurant ones do not. They might even be better than the ones at the restaurant...

The Dough

  • 1 cup milk warmed in microwave for 30 seconds
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. quick rise yeast also known as instant yeast
  • 4 - 6 Tbsp. salted butter for brushing buns melted

The Amazing Cinnamon Honey Butter

  • 1/2 cup of salted butter softened but not at all melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


To Make The Dough

  • Place the ingredients in your bread machine in the order given. Set the machine for the dough setting and let it run. (Usually a 90 minute cycle.)

To Form The Rolls

  • Spray a 8" x 12.5" rectangular glass pan with cooking spray and set aside. (Any pan where the rolls fit with a bit of space around them is fine.)
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and divide and shape into 15 rolls as desired. I roll the dough out into a 14"x11" rectangle and cut it into equal squares. I fold each square in half and place in the pan to rise. Alternately rolls can be formed into round balls by tucking the edges of each piece of dough under.
  • Place the formed rolls into the glass pan (3 rolls by 5 rolls) leaving some space between each roll. Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Turn the oven on to 350 F for 1 minute. TURN THE OVEN OFF and place the pan of covered rolls inside. Let the rolls rise for 25 minutes. Remove pan from oven and preheat to 350 F.
  • Remove the plastic wrap and bake for 15-18 minutes in the preheated oven. Rolls are done when they are cooked through and lightly brown on the outside. Remove from the oven and brush again with melted butter. Serve immediately for the best flavor.
  • Store leftover rolls in an airtight container.

To Make The Honey Butter

  • Use a fork to whip together the soft butter with honey and cinnamon. Serve at room temperature with the hot rolls. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
