  • 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.


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.
