Copycat Texas Road House Rolls
2 cups milk
3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp active dry yeast (1 1/2 pkg)
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup honey
7 1/2 cups flour, divided (give or take 1/2 cup)
2 tsp salt
Put milk in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly.
Melt butter in microwave - set aside.
Combine yeast, warm water, 1 Tbsp sugar in a mixing bowl. Allow yeast to bubble.
Add remaining sugar, honey, milk, and 3 1/2 cups of the flour to the yeast mixture. Beat for a couple of minutes.
Add butter, eggs, and salt and stir well.
Add additional flour, 1/2 cup at a time until dough begins to separate from the sides of the bowl.
Let rest for a few minutes.
Knead dough for about 5 minutes. Add additional flour by tablespoon if dough gets too sticky.
Put dough into a greased bowl; turn dough to grease top.
Cover with plastic wrap or kitchen towel. Let rise till doubled in size, about 45 minutes to an hour.
Punch the dough down for about a minute.
Using half of the dough at a time, roll the dough out till it is about 1/2 inch thick.
Fold the dough in half, so it is now about 1 inch thick. Roll over the dough with a rolling pin to seal the edges.
Cut the dough into approximately 2 inch squares.
Place the squares on a greased baking sheet and cover loosely with plastic wrap.
Allow to double in size again. About an hour.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.
Immediately rub the tops of the rolls with butter.

My family loves these. Making bread or rolls requires time and effort. This recipe produces rolls that are definitely worth the effort.
