BUTTER BOMB WHEAT ROLLS

Guaranteed to be the most addictive menu item on any holiday table, these bread machine wheat rolls (yes, they're that easy!) deliver unmatched homemade flavor. They're insanely delicious.

Have you ever visited Texas Roadhouse or Logan’s Roadhouse restaurants? If so, you might agree with me that the best part of any meal at either of those places is the fresh-from-the-oven yeast rolls that are served before the meal. I so love those rolls that I once spent months trying to replicate them at home–only I wanted a slightly healthier version. After many an attempt, I finally came up with this bread machine recipe for wheat yeast rolls. I serve them frequently when we have guests for special occasions and I can assuredly tell you that these rolls are my most complimented menu item. These bread machine wheat rolls are so soft to bite into, yet they have a distinctively nutty quality, thanks to the wheat flour. They’re also slightly sweet.  Personally, I prefer my version over the restaurant one because the restaurant uses white flour and they have a somewhat gummy texture. Not mine.

 

One of the best things about this recipe is that it comes together in a bread machine so you can pretty much throw everything in and forget about it until it’s time to shape your rolls. Start to finish they take about three hours to make but most of that is inactive bread machine, rising or baking time. You can do your part in twenty minutes.

I make these for every major holiday and they’re always the first thing to disappear from the table. They’re excellent served with compound butter (either honey or herb) and freeze well if you’re serving a small family. I can almost guarantee that if you serve these bread machine wheat rolls at your next gathering, your guests will comment on them for years to come.

Bread machine wheat yeast rolls (Texas Roadhouse copycat)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons butter, cut into small chunks
  • 2 1/8 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons dry milk powder
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • egg wash

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to the pan of your bread machine in order listed. Program your machine to run the dough cycle as directed in manufacturer's instructions.
  2. When dough is finished, turn onto lightly-floured surface. Divide dough into sixteen equal portions (each should weigh about 2.5 ounces, if you have a kitchen scale and want to measure them).
  3. Shape each portion into a ball and place on a lightly-greased sheet pan or pie plate. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and place in warm spot. Allow rolls to rise for 45 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350º. Brush rolls with egg wash (egg white beat with a teaspoon of water or milk) and bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked to an internal temperature of 190º on an instant-read thermometer.
  5. Can be frozen for up to six weeks.

  1. These folks were great! Can’t say they tasted like Texas Roadhouse, but a solid wheat roll with good texture.

  2. This recipe is great and needs no additions or subtractions. Sixteen great rolls. I have made them numerous times and they are consistently good. Only question is : If you freeze them, do you freeze them before or after baking?
