The Best, Most Perfect Dinner Roll Recipe Ever

A dinner roll recipe might seem strange coming from the blogger (me!) who specializes in gluten-free food and baking. And it totally is. 

But I got a Kitchenaid stand mixer for Christmas this year, and I've been making all. The. Bread. 

Don't worry, I'm still making tons of gluten-free and healthy goodies! It's been a bit of a bread-splosion at our house lately. 

All that practice has yielded this, the Best, Most Perfect Dinner Roll Recipe Ever. I made these for Christmas, then again for NYE, then again just family and friends wolfed them down.

You need to make some too. This recipe is foolproof and yields delicious, buttery, soft fluffy flaky dinner rolls people will swear you bought at a bakery.

full recipe after the jump!

The best, Most Perfect Dinner Roll Recipe Ever

Time to make: 2 hours, 45 minutes
Makes: 24 rolls


  • 2 cups of warm water
  • 2 Tbsp instant dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar 
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter


1. In a large bowl (or bowl of your stand mixer) combine the warm milk, yeast, sugar, salt, butter and eggs. Let sit until your yeast has started foaming-about five minutes.

2. Add in 5.5 cups of flour, and combine using the dough hook. Turn the mixer on low, and add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour until the dough just pulls away from the sides of the bowl while mixing. 

3. The dough should be slightly sticky, but still soft to the touch. Add more flour (if needed) until the dough reaches this consistency. 

4. Once your dough is the correct consistency, cover your mixing bowl with plastic cling wrap, and let rise for 90 minutes. I find the best way to do this is to turn my oven on "warm" and place my bowl of dough inside, then turn the oven off to keep in heat while the dough rises. 

5. Grease a baking sheet (super lightly) and set aside. Punch your dough done and form into 24 balls. Handle your dough as little as possible while forming your rolls, the more you handle them the less they'll rise!

6. Place your roll balls onto your greased baking sheet, and cover again. Let them rise for another 60 minutes. 

7. Preheat your oven to 375, and once your rolls have risen, bake for 12 minutes, until lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter. 

8. Let your rolls rest (if you can, who am I kidding?) for about ten minutes before serving!

If you end up with more rolls than you and your family can eat during one meal (which isn't going to happen, who am I kidding?) you can store these in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator for up to several days. 

They don't keep for long, because they're not full of preservatives. So make sure you keep them stored in the fridge, or freeze them for later use!
