Nate’s brother got married a week ago. The wedding was in southern/central utah so we had a little bit to drive to get there. But it was a beautiful ceremony. The bride and groom both looked absolutely amazing.
After the wedding, lots of pictures and driving back to Orem the family wanted to go to a quick late lunch/early dinner before the reception. The bride and groom wanted to go to Texas Road House, so that’s where we went.
Have you been to Texas Road House? To start you off they bring you some of the most amazing rolls in the world. They are covered in butter, so fluffy and delicious and then they give you some honey butter to top them off with.
I had been wanting to make homemade white rolls for a little while now, and after going to Texas Road House I knew that I had to find a copy cat of their rolls. I don’t know if these are exactly like their rolls, but they sure are delicious. And, I’ve got a honey butter recipe coming up to follow soon, that tastes so great on top.
Plus, I got this recipe from one of my favorite blogger friends – Allison at Cupcake Diaries, here.
Copycat Texas Road House Rolls
- 2 cups milk
- 3 TBS butter
- 1 TBS active dry yeast (or 1 package)

- ½ cup sugar, divided
- ½ cup honey

- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp salt
- Put milk in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly.
- Melt your butter in the microwave. Set aside.

- Add butter, eggs and salt and stir well.
- Add additional flour ½ cup at a time until dough begins to separate from the sides.
- Let rest for a few minutes.
- Knead dough for about 5 minutes. Add additional flour by the tablespoon if dough gets sticky.
- Remove dough from bowl and grease bowl.
- Return dough to bowl and turn it over so it all gets covered in grease.
- Loosely cover bowl with plastic wrap.

- Once the dough has doubled, punch it down for about a minutes.
- Roll the dough out till it is about ½ inch thick.
- Fold the dough in half, so its now about 1 inch thick and roll over the dough a little to seal the two halves.
- Cut the dough into approximately 2 inch squares.
- Place dough on a greased baking sheet and cover loosely with plastic wrap.
- Allow to double in size again. About 1 hour.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.
- Immediately rub the tops of the rolls with butter.
Enjoy these rolls plain or topped with honey butter or jam.

These rolls are especially delicious hot out of the oven!
