With just 7 ingredients, these Homemade Dinner Rolls are light, soft, and buttery. The perfect addition to any dinner table!

Ingredients 1 ⅔ cups (400 ml) whole milk ½ cup (113 g) unsalted butter, melted ¼ cup (50 g) granulated sugar 2 teaspoons salt 3 large eggs, Divided 4 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast, 2 envelopes 5 cups (650 g) bread flour

Scald the milk


Boil the milk then remove from heat and let stand until a skin forms on the surface.

Combine the wet ingredients


Transfer the warm milk to a stand mixer and whisk in melted butter, sugar, and salt. Once the mixture is warm to the touch, whisk in 2 eggs and the yeast.

Add the dry ingredients


Add the flour and knead until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Knead and let rise


Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead by hand until very soft and but still moist. Transfer to a large, oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for about an hour, until it has doubled in size.

Shape rolls


Shape the dough into 20 balls and arrange the dough balls in a buttered baking pan.

Let rise & bake


Allow the rolls to rise until they've almost doubled in size. This should take 30 to 45 minutes. Then bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.



Enjoy warm with butter.
