Dinner Yeast Rolls

Sena Wilson


My grandmother always made the best dinner rolls. However, no one had her exact recipe. She was a pinch here and a pinch there kind of gal! It has taken me years but this recipe, according to my family, is now their favorite "grandma" rolls. Hope you enjoy them!

  • 3 c
    all purpose flour plus if needed
  • 2/3 c
    milk (110 - 115 degrees)
  • 5 Tbsp
    butter, melted
  • 1/3 c
  • 1 tsp
  • 2 pkg
    yeast (for large rolls)
  • 2
    eggs, slightly beaten

How to Make Dinner Yeast Rolls


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm milk with 1 tsp. of the sugar. Add melted butter. Let set 5 - 10 minutes. Add eggs, salt, and remaining sugar to yeast mixture. Stir in flour one cup at a time with your mixer. After all the flour had been added, knead with a mixer dough paddle for 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Place in a oiled bowl and let rise until double in size (approximately an hour). Punch down on a dough cloth and pinch off medium size balls of dough. I use a muffin pan and place two balls in each muffin cup brushed with butter. Let rolls rise again.
  3. Start baking in a cold oven with temperature set at 375 degrees. Bake 18 - 22 minutes or until slightly brown on top. Brush lightly with melted butter.
