I wish I knew how to cook. Better yet, I wish I could bake. One thing I can tell you is that I love those warm Texas Roadhouse Rolls with cinnamon butter from Texas Roadhouse.

Sunday night I had the opportunity to visit the new DeKalb location. When my server brought out those bread rolls, my tummy was in heaven.

When I got home, I did a little internet surfing and came across this "alleged" recipe for those tasty Texas Roadhouse Rolls. I make no guarantee that if you follow this recipe that your rolls will take the same, but it would be fun to give it a go.

Anyone want to give it a try? Here is the recipe.

  • 4 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1/2 c. warm water
  • 2 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
  • 3 Tbl. of melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 quarts all purpose flour (7-8 cups)
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tsp. salt

Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar; let stand until frothy. Combine yeast mixture, milk, 1/2 cup sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter (about the consistency of pancake batter). Beat thoroughly. Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well. Add enough flour to form a soft dough. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto counter and let dough rest. Meanwhile, grease a large bowl. Knead dough until smooth and satiny and put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. (I used the dough hook on my Kitchen-Aid to knead this for about 4-5 minutes). Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk. Punch down. Turn out onto a floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes. Shape dough into desired forms. Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Baste immediately with butter. Yield: 5 to 6 dozen. Serve with Cinnamon Honey Butter.

Now, I need a volunteer to make some of that Texas Roadhouse cinnamon butter to go with the rolls and I'll be set. Perhaps Q98.5's resident recipe queen, Susan Tyler, might be interested.
