The Best Classic Dinner Rolls
This is my go to best Classic Dinner Roll Recipe. I make this bread for Thanksgiving every year plus other holidays or just to go with regular dinner too. I love this recipe because it reminds me of dinner rolls that you receive at restaurants or the kind you find at the grocery store, only these are even better because they are homemade. For Thanksgiving I make one batch for the dinner & one to make stuffing out of.
I have my sister to thank for this recipe. She made hamburger buns using this recipe & I turned around and made dinner rolls with the same recipe & the texture is perfect. I bake them in a 9×13″ glass pyrex dish. I like glass pans so I can see if the bottoms are golden brown and done. Whole recipe makes about 18 rolls, I usually place them in rows of 3.
You can knead the dough using your preferred method. Some use a stand mixer with a dough hook, a bread machine, or by hand. I use my bread machine to knead the dough on the dough setting for 10-15 minutes then I turn it off & let it rise. If you are using a bread machine you could also just use the dough setting & let it complete, it just takes a little longer.
