- Active Dry Yeast
- Warm Water: Make sure the water is warm. This is very important to activate the yeast.
- Milk: Allow it to set and come to room temperature.
- Butter: Melted butter is best. Keep it in a small bowl until ready to use.
- Large Egg – Allow this to set at room temperature.
- All purpose Flour
How to make Texas roadhouse rolls
First, get out your stand mixer. Add the ¼ cup warm water and the instant yeast. Mix them together and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. The yeast needs to completely dissolve.
Second, add the milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt to the yeast mixture in the mixing bowl. Mix everything together slightly and use the dough hook. This will take about 1 minute.
Next, gradually add the flour to the bowl. It is best to do this 1 cup at a time and mix after each addition until the mixture forms a soft dough.
Keep in mind that you may not need all the flour depending on the environment you live in. The dough will pull away from the edges of the bowl when you mix it. This is how you know it is ready.
Once combined, put the dough in a large bowl. Make sure the bowl is coated in oil before putting the dough inside.
Cover with either plastic wrap or a damp cloth. Allow the dough to rise.
The dough will need about 1 to 2 hours to rise in a warm area and should double in size. Leave the bowl on the counter to rise.
Texas Roadhouse Bread Recipe
After the dough has risen, punch it down and roll it out on a floured surface. Roll the dough until it is about 1/2” thick.
Next, cut the dough into square pieces. You want to end up with about 20 to 24 square pieces.
I like to use a pizza cutter to cut the squares. It is important for the classic Texas roadhouse square shape.
You will need 2 baking sheets. Spray with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper, and put the dough squares on the baking sheets spacing them 1” apart.
Now, cover the rolls and let them rise for about 30 minutes. They should double in size.
While you are waiting on the rolls to double in size, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Once the oven is ready, bake the rolls for 12 to 15 minutes or until the rolls are a light golden brown on top.
Use the remaining melted butter to spread on top of the rolls. I like to use a pastry brush to quickly and easily spread the butter on the rolls.

Tips for copycat Texas roadhouse rolls:
- Make sure that your yeast is not expired.
- Ensure that you use warm water and not hot water as hot water will kill the yeast for this recipe.
- When measuring your flour, scoop or shift the flour into the measuring cup. Do not scoop the cup into the flour as this might cause too much flour in this bread recipe.

They will last for up to 6 months in the freezer. When ready to eat, you can thaw them on the counter and even heat in the oven for that fresh baked taste.
