Texas Roadhouse Copy Rolls and Butter!

I LOVE Texas Roadhouse. I usually eat 2 baskets of rolls and butter all by myself when we go, so I was searching around and found a recipe for the rolls on Envy My Cooking! The recipe is fairly simple, and doesn't take a ton of time. Here it is:

Texas Roadhouse Rolls - Copycat Recipe
adapted from: Good Stuff Maynard

4 tsp. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
2 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
3 Tbl. of melted butter, slightly cooled
1/2 c. sugar
2 quarts all purpose flour (7-8 cups)
2 whole eggs
2 tsp. salt

Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar. Add yeast, milk, sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter. Beat thoroughly. Let stand until light and foamy. Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well.

Add enough flour to form a soft dough. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto counter and let dough rest. Meanwhile, grease a large bowl. Knead dough until smooth and satiny (or put in your kitchen-aid, use the dough hook and knead for about five minutes.)and put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top.Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk. Punch down. Turn out onto a floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes. Shape dough into desired forms. Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Baste immediately with butter. Yield: 5 to 6 dozen.
Simple Enough??? So, you can't have the rolls without the butter, so I went searching for the butter recipe, and it is SOOOO easy I was shocked. I got this recipe from

  2. YES thank you for this! LOVE Texas Roadhouse!


  3. Love Roadhouse too! I don't cook/bake much...what does it mean for scalded milk?

  4. Scalded milk just means basically burnt milk.. You want to heat it on the stove until just after it boils, then pull it off.

  5. they were not as light and fluffy as trhouse... must have done something wrong..what were the bowls greased with
