Texas Roadhouse’s Rolls

Indulge in the comfort of homemade Texas Roadhouse Rolls, a delightful treat that pairs perfectly with any meal or stands out on its own as a savory snack. This recipe guides you through creating these famous, fluffy rolls from scratch, topped with the irresistible honey cinnamon butter, a signature of Texas Roadhouse. The process begins with activating the yeast in warm water, ensuring the foundation for a perfectly risen dough. You’ll then blend the yeast with warm milk, buttermilk, sugar, and flour, creating a smooth and elastic dough. After a resting period for the dough to rise, you’ll shape it into individual rolls, bake them to a golden brown perfection, and finish them off with a brush of melted butter. The true highlight is the honey cinnamon butter, a simple yet divine combination of butter, cinnamon, honey, and confectioners sugar, creating a sweet and spicy spread that melts deliciously over the warm rolls. Whether served as a side dish or enjoyed on their own, these Texas Roadhouse Rolls are sure to be a crowd-pleaser, bringing a touch of southern hospitality right to your table.


Ingredients for Rolls:

  1. 1 Packet dry active yeast
  2. ¼ cup warm water
  3. ½ cup milk
  4. ½ cup buttermilk
  5. ¼ cup granulated sugar
  6. 1 egg
  7. Pinch of salt
  8. 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  9. 2 tablespoons softened unsalted butter

Ingredients for Honey Cinnamon Butter:

  1. 4 tablespoons butter, softened and unsalted
  2. ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  3. 2 teaspoons honey
  4. 1 tablespoon confectioners sugar


  1. Prepare the Yeast: In a bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Stir once and let it rest.
  2. Warm the Milk: Mix milk and buttermilk in a microwave-safe container. Heat until warm. It’s okay if the buttermilk separates.
  3. Melt Butter in Milk: Stir 2 tablespoons of softened butter into the milk mixture until melted.
  4. Mix Dough: In a mixing bowl, combine the milk mixture, yeast, sugar, salt, and 1 cup of flour. Beat on high with a dough hook until smooth.
  5. Add Egg: Incorporate the egg into the dough, beating well.
  6. Add Remaining Flour: Gradually add the remaining flour until the dough pulls away cleanly from the dough hook.
  7. Let Dough Rise: Form the dough into a ball in a greased bowl, slightly flour it, cover, and let rise for 1 hour.
  8. Shape Rolls: Roll the dough on a floured surface to ½ inch thickness. Cut into 12 rectangles, fold under the ends to shape into rolls, and place on a lined baking sheet. Let them rise for 20 minutes.
  9. Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  10. Bake: Bake the rolls for 12-15 minutes until they are lightly browned on top. Optionally, brush with melted butter.
  11. Make Honey Cinnamon Butter: Combine all ingredients for the butter in a bowl. Mix until smooth.
  12. Serve: Enjoy the warm rolls with the Honey Cinnamon Butter.

These rolls are perfect as a side dish for dinners or a treat on their own, especially when served warm with the homemade Honey Cinnamon Butter. Enjoy your homemade Texas Roadhouse’s Rolls!
