This buttery butter rolls recipe may become a welcome addition to your family dinners because they are rich and flavourful. Every family has a bread tradition at all holiday gatherings whether it is crescent rolls, store-bought rolls or homemade rolls. Homemade buns recipes can vary between size, texture and flavor. Some may be larger and dusted with sesame seeds as a base for burgers while others may be topped with cheese. This butter rolls recipe is closer to the classic white dinner roll but has the bonus of being brushed with butter at the very end of baking. This recipe also makes quite a few meaning that you will have several to feed the whole family and possibly more for the following day, too.

Traditional bread ingredients include flour, water, yeast and salt, and sometimes sugar. This dinner roll recipe adds the bonus of melted butter, plus eggs, which lightens the dough and sets these buns apart from other versions. As with any bun recipe, though, you will have to let the dough rest until it is doubled in size before you shape it into buns and allow them to rise again. Leigh Anne, the author of ‘Your Homebased Mom’ recipe blog, uses muffin tins to turn her butter rolls into uniformly shaped buns. The real key to making this bread recipe will be to use a non-stick muffin tin that is greased very well so that the buns come out without tearing. If you don’t have a muffin tin that you trust to bake these rolls in, however, you could always place the buns side-by-side on a parchment-lined baking sheet. They won’t bake to the same popover shape that Leigh Anne’s dinner rolls do, but they will be just as delicious.

Homemade bread is far superior to store-bought bread because it tastes divine, especially when warm, and you know what is going into it. Store-bought loaves of bread and buns often contain unnatural preservatives that are difficult for the human body to digest. When you create these easy dinner rolls at home, you will be ensuring that your family eats a roll with natural ingredients, like butter, eggs, and flour. This bun recipe is best when served warm because they are drenched in the goodness of butter, but if they happen to sit around beyond the day they are made you could always warm them in the oven to bring them back to their ideal quality.

Leigh Anne shows you how to turn this buttery roll recipe into an elegant treat by assembling them like a cloverleaf rather than a round ball. Cloverleaf rolls look impressive, but are very easy to assemble, requiring you just put three balls of dough into each cup of the muffin tin. The dough does the rest to bake into fluffy dinner rolls. Of course, you could always turn this bun recipe into whatever shapes you like whether it be round rolls or twisted ones.
