The BEST Soft Everything Dinner Rolls
I’ve been holding out on you friends. I made these dinner rolls way back for Thanksgiving, but never got around to posting them. But there’s a legitimate good reason. I figured you were probably getting bombarded with dozens of dinner roll recipes along with all the usual TGiving recipes that your brains were probably about to burst.
I really wanted to share them when they could get the attention they so deserve. So….say hello to your new favorite ultra-fluffy, buttery Soft Everything Dinner Rolls. As the saying goes…better late then never, right? And just ahead of time for your Easter dinner this year!
I made these for the Thanksgiving holiday last year because dinner rolls were my contribution to the Thanksgiving meal at my sister and brother-in-law’s house. And since my nephew Cody who is a student at the Culinary Institute of America was going to be there I knew I had to use a tried and true recipe.
I was browsing on Red Star Yeast’s site and came across the recipe for Homemade Dinner Rolls and knew it was the one. I read through the recipe and when I scrolled to bottom I noticed it was Sally’s recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Enough said. I knew they’d be the best! The only change I made was to add the everything bagel seasoning.
I have made these dinner rolls several times since Thanksgiving, sometimes plain, sometimes with the everything bagel seasoning and sometimes with a garlic butter topping.
I even tried them with some added cinnamon, walnuts and raisins and they were absolutely delicious. That recipe will be coming at you sometime soon too.
What I love about bread recipes is that you’ll only need a handful of ingredients and as long as you carve some time to let the dough rise properly you’ll have the most delicious rolls to enjoy! Better than store-bought for sure.
Soft Everything Dinner Roll Ingredients
- whole milk
- Red Star Platinum Yeast
- granulated sugar
- unsalted butter
- all-purpose flour or bread flour
- everything bagel seasoning
These would also be delicious with the Curried Chicken Salad recipe I shared on Monday. They’re fun to make and even better to eat!

A Few Cook’s Notes for Soft Everything Dinner Rolls
Sally mentions that you can use all-purpose flour or bread flour for this recipe. I used bread flour.
I also used the Red Star Platinum Yeast as Sally recommended as opposed to just regular yeast.
Most markets now carry already prepared Everything Bagel Seasoning in the spice aisle. If your market doesn’t carry it you can use my recipe HERE for my homemade bagel seasoning.
- 1 cup whole milk, warmed to 110 degrees
- 1 packet (0.25 oz.) Red Star Platinum Yeast
- 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar, divided
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temp and cut into 4 pieces
- 1 tsp. table salt
- 3 cups all-purpose flour, or bread flour
- 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
- 2 Tbsp. Everything Bagel seasoning
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk the warm milk, yeast and one tablespoon of the sugar. Cover and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes. (If you don't have a stand mixer, this can all be done by hand with a large mixing bowl and a large wooden spoon or rubber spatula).
- Add the remaining one tablespoon of the sugar, egg, butter, salt, and 1 cup of the flour. With a dough hook mix on low speed for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then add the remaining flour. Beat on medium speed until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl, about 2 minutes. The dough should be a little sticky, but if it appears to be too wet, add another tablespoon or two of flour.
- Beat the dough for an additional 2 minutes or knead it by hand on a lightly floured surface for 2 minutes.
- Lightly grease a large bowl with nonstick spray. Place the dough in the bowl, turning it to coat all sides in the oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. Allow it to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until it has doubled in size.
- Spray a 9×13 inch baking pan with nonstick spray, Set aside. When the dough is ready, punch it down to release the air. Divide the dough into 15 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place in the prepared baking dish. Cover rolls with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel. Allow to rise about 1 hour.
- Adjust oven rack to a lower position and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top. Rotate the pan halfway through baking time. If the tops are browning too quickly, tent the pan with foil. Remove from the oven, brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with the everything bagel seasoning. Allow rolls to cool for a few minutes before serving.
- Cover the leftover rolls with foil and store at room temperature for 2-3 days.
