Texas Roadhouse Rolls Recipe

Bread. Rolls. Carbs. They’re pretty much my life-line.

So it should come as no surprise to anyone that one of my favorite yeast rolls are those served at Texas Roadhouse restaurants.

Now, in case you have never been to a Texas Roadhouse before, let me explain the glory of these rolls to you: The roll itself has just a hint of sweetness and a fluffy texture that still maintains its structure.

They’re served hot and topped with melted butter, and served alongside what can only be described as the holy grail of condiments: cinnamon honey butter.

Did you just swoon and/or drool a little? Because I certainly did.

I needed a solid base recipe for these rolls. When I need a solid recipe I turn to my most valued source: my book of my great-grandmother’s recipes.

I have made dozens of my great-grandmother’s recipes and they never let me down, so I knew I could count on her expertise for fantastic yeast rolls. With just a little bit of tweaking for spot-on flavor, this recipe was also a success.

This recipe makes a perfect copycat of the rolls you get at Texas Roadhouse. It uses half a cup of honey for the perfect amount of sweetness and uses two eggs, which helps give the rolls the structure and texture of the original.

But please, for the love of all that is holy, do not even consider making these rolls without making the cinnamon honey butter. Literally, honey and butter and cinnamon are the only ingredients you need to make the best butter you’ve ever had.

In fact, I encourage you to make extra and put it on everything. Put it on rolls. Put it on toast. Put it on sweet potatoes. Put it on squash. Put it on all the things.

  • 2.5 Bread Flour
  • 4.5 Instant Yeast (2 packages)
  • 1.25 Water
  • 0.5 Milk
  • 0.5 Honey
  • 0.33 Unsalted Butter
  • 1.5 Salt
  • 2 Egg
  • 3 All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Butter melted (optional)


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, whisk together 2 cups of the bread flour and the yeast.
  • In a saucepan, combine the water, milk, honey and butter. Heat over medium heat just until warm – butter does not need to be completely melted.
  • With the mixer running on low, pour the milk mixture into the bowl of the stand mixer. Beat for 2 minutes until well combined.
  • Add the remaining bread flour, salt and the eggs. Mix on low speed until well combined.
  • Add the all-purpose flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing on medium speed until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Place dough on a well-floured surface and knead for 5-8 minutes, until smooth and elastic.
  • Place dough in a lightly-greased bowl, cover lightly with a clean tea towel and place in a warm place to rise. Let rise for about 1 hour until doubled in size.
  • Gently turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a large rectangle 1/2-inch thick. Use a dough blade, knife or pizza cutter to cut dough into 24 squares. Place rolls onto buttered baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Cover lightly with a tea towel and let rise for about 30 minutes or until puffy.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Bake rolls for 15-18 minutes, until golden. Brush with melted butter upon removing from the oven. Serve warm with Cinnamon Honey Butter
