In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of making homemade Roadhouse Rolls that will have your family and friends asking for more.


For the Rolls:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (110°F or 43°C)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg, room temperature

For the Honey Cinnamon Butter:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Proof the yeast:
    • In a small bowl, combine the warm water and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
    • Sprinkle the yeast over the water-sugar mixture and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes, until it becomes frothy. This indicates that the yeast is active and ready to use.
  2. Mix the dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.
    • Pour in the yeast mixture, melted butter, and the egg.
    • Stir everything together until a soft dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough:
    • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead it for about 5-7 minutes, or until it’s smooth and elastic.
  4. Let it rise:
    • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1-1.5 hours, or until it has doubled in size.
  5. Shape the rolls:
    • After the dough has risen, punch it down to release any air bubbles.
    • Divide the dough into 20 equal pieces and shape each piece into a ball.
    • Place the rolls in a greased 9×13-inch baking dish.
  6. Second rise:
    • Cover the rolls again with a damp cloth and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat and bake:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Bake the rolls for 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown on top.
  8. Make the honey cinnamon butter:
    • While the rolls are baking, mix the softened butter, honey, and ground cinnamon in a small bowl until well combined.
  9. Serve:
    • Once the rolls are out of the oven, brush them with some melted butter and serve them warm with the honey cinnamon butter on the side.
