Jumbo Dinner Rolls Recipe

The dough is extra soft and tender thanks to the addition of butter, milk, and eggs! So tasty and perfect for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner table.


1Heat the milk and butter together in the microwave to scald the milk and melt the butter, 2 to 3 minutes. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes.


In a large mixing bowl, combine milk/butter mixture, water, yeast, sugar, and salt. Let yeast rest for 5 minutes.


Add half the flour, and mix for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix until incorporated.


Add the rest of the flour, ½ cup at a time, until a soft dough forms. The dough should be soft and elastic, but not sticky. Knead with your mixer or by hand for 5 minutes.


Let the dough rise in a greased bowl for 30 minutes. After rising time has passed, divide the dough into 32 pieces. Roll each piece into a round roll, and place it on a greased, rimmed baking sheet.


Once all the dough is shaped, cover the rolls, and let them rise for another 30 minutes. Once the rolls have at least doubled in size, bake at 400 degrees F. for 14 to 18 minutes.


Remove from the oven, and butter the tops of the rolls while still hot. Serve warm or at room temperature.
