There’s absolutely no need to be intimidated by homemade yeast bread baking. Especially with a practically foolproof recipe like this one for the best ever Ultimate Dinner Rolls.

I promise, it’s way easier than it probably seems. These will become the surprise star of your Thanksgiving dinner table… or just your Sunday night family dinners!

I actually originally developed this recipe in 2013 after testing tons of tweaks on dinner rolls for my Ultimate Dinner Roll Guide post here. I learned exactly what made dinner rolls fluffy or hard, tender or crusty, and compiled my favorite tweaks to create this recipe for Ultimate Dinner Rolls!

Over the years, I’ve continued to tweak and improve the recipe to make it even more soft, fluffy, and flavorful.

I hope you give this recipe a shot soon. If you’re still freaked out by working with yeast, get my *free* Beginner’s Quick Guide to Bread here.

How to Make Dinner Rolls

Ingredients for Dinner Rolls

  • Warm milk – whole milk produces the absolute best flavor and texture. We don’t recommend using a nondairy or low-fat milk unless you absolutely must.
  • Unsalted butter – a little inside the dough lends richness and flavor! Plus, even more brushed on the freshly baked rolls because YUM.
  • Eggs – also add richness and flavor. Two eggs go inside the dough and one gets brushed on top for an ultra shiny and golden brown exterior.
  • Granulated sugar – just a touch, not too much, to help make the rolls tender and golden brown.
  • Salt  – fine sea salt or table salt is an absolute must in the dough, but I also love sprinkling the freshly baked and buttered rolls with flaky sea salt for even more flavor.
  • Instant yeast – more on this below.
  • Bread flour – bread flour has a higher level of protein content than all-purpose flour, which helps create tall dinner rolls with a nice chewy, fluffy texture. If you don’t have bread flour, use the same amount of all-purpose flour. Your rolls may just be slightly shorter and less chewy.

Which Yeast Is Best to Use For Dinner Rolls?

This recipe utilizes a short cut ingredient: instant yeast, also called rapid rise or quick rise yeast. One of the three should be available at most grocery stores or you can buy my all-time favorite yeast on Amazon. These types of yeast are specifically formulated to allow you to skip proofing (aka the step where you combine the yeast with warm liquid for 5 minutes). You can add instant yeast directly into the mix with all of the ingredients.

If you don’t have or can’t find instant yeast, you can easily use active dry yeast instead. Add it right in with the dry ingredients like instant yeast, just know the dough will take about 20% more time to rise. Or, to speed up that rise time slightly, simply combine it with the warm water and milk called for in the recipe and allow it to proof for 5 minutes before adding into the bowl with the other ingredients.

Can I Knead the Dough By Hand?

Yes! Be sure to knead the dough properly to get rolls that hold their shape and bake up nice and fluffy. I call for a stand mixer to make easy work of kneading in this recipe, but you can also knead by hand. You can see my full tutorial on how to knead dough here.

How to Tell When Dough Is Risen

After kneading, shape the dough into a ball. Place in a lightly oiled mixing bowl. I like to use glass so I can see how much it’s rising. I’ll even snap an iPhone picture of the dough before rising so I can compare later. The dough should be turned over to oil the top so that it doesn’t dry out. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, foil, or a clean kitchen towel. Let the dough rise in a warm, draft-free location. Ideal rise temperatures are between 80°F and 90°F. Lower temperatures will require more rising time.

The dough is done rising when it’s about doubled in size and passes the “ripe” test. Gently stick two fingers in the risen dough up to the second knuckle and then take them out. If the finger marks remain, the dough is ready for shaping into balls. If not, cover and let the dough rise longer until it is.

The same finger test can be done again when the rolls are shaped and getting ready for baking. Here’s what my dough looked like before and after rising:

How to Shape Bread Rolls

Once the dough is risen, press it down to deflate it slightly. Use a bench scraper to section the dough into 12 equal pieces. Don’t worry if they’re not perfectly equal in size. However, if you’re a perfectionist you can actually weigh the entire mass of dough, divide that number by 12, then portion each piece perfectly by weight.

As you’re shaping each piece into a round, make sure to pinch the dough into one central point to create a tight ball. This will help the rolls rise beautifully. Don’t flour your work surface when shaping the rolls because you want some resistance to roll them into taut balls.

You can also get creative with the shapes! Check out my article for 5 Ways to Shape Bread Rolls here.

How to Make Dinner Rolls Ahead of Time

Basically all yeast dough can be made ahead of time and baked off later on! For this recipe, I like to make the dough all the way through to rising once and shaping the rolls. Once the rolls are shaped, cover them and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Bring to room temperature as the oven preheats before baking as the recipe directs. If the rolls haven’t doubled in size yet, allow to sit at room temperature until they do.

Refrigerating basically stunts the rise time and can actually allow more flavor to develop!

The rolls are best served the day they’re baked. However, you can easily reheat the rolls briefly in the oven or toaster oven at 300°F until warmed through to refresh.

How to make
Ultimate Dinner Rolls

Yield: 12 rolls
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Rising time 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 50 minutes
This simple recipe for homemade ultimate dinner rolls makes beautifully golden brown rolls with a soft and fluffy texture! Tons of baking tips, video for how to shape rolls, and make ahead instructions included.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 cup warm milk (100 to 110°F)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted plus more for greasing
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fine salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) instant yeast
  • 4 1/2 cups (572 grams) bread flour

For egg wash & finishing

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Melted butter
  • Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling

Directions

  1. Combine the water, milk, 1 tablespoon of the melted butter, eggs, sugar, salt and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add 2 cups of the flour and stir with a wooden spoon until the dough forms a rough, shaggy mass. Attach the dough hook to the mixer, turn to medium-low speed, and gradually add the remaining flour, kneading until a mass of dough begins to form. Continue kneading on medium-high speed for 4 to 5 minutes until a soft, smooth ball of dough is formed. The dough should feel elastic and slightly tacky to the touch.

  2. Lightly spray a large clean bowl with cooking spray and place the dough in the bowl. Cover the bowl lightly with plastic wrap. Let rise for about 1 hour to 90 minutes at room temperature or until the dough is big, puffy, and about doubled in size.

  3. Grease a 9x13-inch or similarly shaped baking pan with butter. Gently deflate the dough. Use a bench scraper, knife, or pizza wheel to divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place in the prepared pan. Lightly cover the dough with plastic wrap and let the rolls rise for about 1 hour, or until about doubled in size.

  4. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  5. Brush the rolls gently with the beaten egg. Bake the rolls for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with salt. Serve warm. Store leftovers in a plastic bag for up to 3 days.

    If your goal is to have an empty dish at the end of a meal… look no further! For this baker, I’m loving how effortless the ultimate roll recipe was to make. And bonus! These fluffy, buttery, and soft rolls were a {huge} hit at Friendsgiving. They’re 100% going to be a staple at our family gatherings.

    These rolls turned out gorgeous—there’s no doubt about that. I got so many compliments about how amazing they looked! They were huge and a beautiful gold color. However, despite following the directions to my best understanding, the rolls were incredibly heavy and dense. I believe my dough was under-kneaded. I’m wondering if Tessa’s idea of medium-high and my idea of it are different. KitchenAids pack a punch, so maybe I just didn’t do it as high as I should have. I had it on speed 5, maybe? I’d love to try them again but knead them longer!

    • #
      Emily — November 18, 2021 at 4:06 pm

      Hi Samantha! I’m sorry to hear your rolls were dense. We can’t specifically state which speed to have the mixer on as all mixers are different (including KitchenAids from different years!), but you could try a little higher next time to see if that helps. The most important steps though in creating light and fluffy rolls are to use a digital scale to measure your ingredients (or check out this article here on How to Measure Flour) and to ensure that your dough doubles in size for each rise time. I recommend taking photos of your dough before rising and after to compare as it’s hard to tell sometimes 🙂 I hope that helps! Please give this recipe another try and let us know how it goes, I can’t wait for you to enjoy them how they’re meant to be!

      • #
        Samantha — November 18, 2021 at 7:01 pm

        Ohh, that makes sense! I DO weigh my ingredients, so I know that wasn’t the problem. I think I just didn’t knead it enough. Thank you!

    Would it be okay to double this recipe and use a half sheet pan? Would that affect the recipe at all?

    • #
      Emily — November 18, 2021 at 3:57 pm

      Hi Elisabeth! While we haven’t tried that, you should have no issues doubling the recipe and using a larger pan 🙂 Please let us know how it goes!

    Delicious rolls. Pretty dense structure. Would be great for scooping mashed potatoes

      Emily — November 17, 2021 at 9:37 am

      Hi Nathan! Thanks for your feedback! These rolls are actually supposed to be pretty light and fluffy. If your rolls turned out dense, I would make sure you’re measuring your flour with a digital scale as well as ensuring that the dough doubles in size for each rise time. I hope you give this recipe another try!

    Lisa Villard — November 14, 2021 at 11:39 am

    These were so delicious. Delicate yet study enough to sop up some gravy. The only thing was how sticky the dough was. I found it difficult to roll into small balls but it worked out.

    • #
      Emily — November 15, 2021 at 4:26 pm

      So happy you loved them, Lisa! If you live in a more humid climate, you may need to add additional flour. I’d start by just 1 tablespoon at a time until it’s not unbearably sticky.

    Shelby — November 14, 2021 at 7:41 am

    What type of pan is best? I have a 9×13 glass dish but didn’t know if baking time would be longer with this?

    • #
      Emily — November 15, 2021 at 3:24 pm

      Hi Shelby! We prefer using a metal 9×13 pan, like USA Pan, as they conduct heat a lot more quickly and efficiently. We haven’t tried a glass pan, though other readers have with success! You will need to adjust the baking time by a few minutes as glass conducts heat more slowly, just make sure to keep an eye on them! Please let us know how it goes!

    Rose Dubois — November 13, 2021 at 3:10 pm

    Nikki — November 11, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    I thought these were okay. I let them rise one hour each time, but they got bigger than in the pictures. They were a good texture, but maybe next time I’d cook them a little less time (I did 20 minutes) and add a little more salt. But I will say, I am not a professional baker and I am probably to blame as pretty much every other recipe I’ve made from this blog is amazing.

    • #
      Emily — November 12, 2021 at 11:19 am

      Hi Nikki! We definitely recommend following the sensory indications in a recipe as well, so 1 hour, or until about doubled in size. If you live in a warmer climate, your rolls can rise much more quickly 🙂 Do you have an oven thermometer? If the rolls got too brown, I’d make sure your oven temperature is accurate (everyone’s oven is different!) and then lessen the baking time or reduce your temperature based on your findings. And feel free to add more salt, I highly recommend sprinkling with the flaky sea salt if you hadn’t already, it’s so delicious!

  30. #
    Kaitlin — November 11, 2021 at 3:04 pm

    These were great. Very easy and came out of the oven beautifully golden and delicious looking. I only had enough bread flour for half the recipe so I used a combo of all purpose and bread flour. I’d like them a tiny bit saltier next time but that’s just my preference. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • #
      Emily — November 9, 2021 at 12:59 pm

      So glad you enjoyed them, Melissa! We absolutely love sprinkling flaky sea salt on the tops of the rolls after brushed with melted butter. If you skipped that step, I would highly recommend it! Otherwise, feel free to up the salt a bit to suit your preference 🙂

    I made this Recipe as part of the November 2021 Contest, and because FRANKLY….I LOVE BREAD!!!! For the most part the response was extremely positive. I got one semi-“Complaint” that the rolls were slightly dense. As far as everyone else…They were Tasty, Soft, Flavorful and downright Yummy. I would like to figure out the Dense issue but if that is the only complaint…I’d Call this a Raging Success. Thanks for the Recipe and I look forward to future contests and trying other recipes you have.

    • #
      Emily — November 9, 2021 at 12:16 pm

      Hooray! So happy to hear they were such a success! Dense rolls can be due to too much flour being added, so make sure you’re using a digital scale to measure your ingredients. You also want to make sure you’re allowing the dough enough time to rise. Were they completely doubled in size before baked? A little tip from me: I actually take a picture of what I’m making before the rise so I can compare it an hour or so later to ensure they’ve doubled in size. Hope that helps!
