Buttery Dinner Rolls

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Servings: 12 -15 rolls


  • 2 tbsp warm water
  • 3/4 cup warm milk
  • 1/4 cup 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted, plus more for bowl and pans
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs divided
  • 3 to 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 packets 1/4 ounce each active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp)


  • Place all dough ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed making sure to only use 1 egg. Select the dough cycle and press start. Once the bread machine stops (it was one and a half hours on my machine). Grease a 9x13 glass baking dish or large round Dutch oven or baking pan. Divide dough into 12-15 pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Place 2 inches apart in the baking dish.
  • Cover with a clean dish cloth (don't use plastic wrap). Let rise in a warm place 45 to 60 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, beat remaining egg until blended; brush onto rolls. Bake until golden brown, about 17-20 minutes, rotating pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through. Melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave; add the minced garlic, stir until well combined. Brush the garlic butter over the top of the rolls; sprinkle with sea salt. Let rolls cool 10 minutes before serving.
