Homemade Classic Dinner Rolls

When you are cooking for a big family, it can seem like an exhausting thought to make dinner rolls for everyone. The way I’m going to teach you is going to make making dinner rolls so much easier. If you’ve never made these before, you might be surprised as to how easy they are.

Ingredients for Dinner Rolls

How do you even make dinner rolls? Do you need super fancy ingredients? You do not! I am going to walk you through some of the ingredients needed to make this delicious side that everyone needs at their dinner table.

  • All-purpose flour – Most of us have all-purpose flour in our pantry. Get that beautiful white powder out, so you can make these rolls! You have never put flour to better use.
  • Sugar – Don’t worry, you don’t use a lot of sugar, but you do need a little bit to complete this side.
  • Salt – Another easy ingredient that you will use in these rolls is salt.
  • Milk and water – You will need liquid to help you complete these yummy dinner rolls.
  • Butter – Don’t forget about butter because this is going to help make your rolls soft and buttery.

These ingredients for dinner rolls will help you create the most amazing rolls your family has ever had. Biting into soft rolls is so comforting and something everyone should experience in their life at least once.

How to Freeze Homemade Rolls

Making these Homemade Classic Dinner Rolls are easy, but that doesn’t mean you want to make them all the time. If you’d like to make these rolls and freeze them, but them in a 9 by 13 pan and wrap them with Saran Wrap twice around. These will freeze for up to three months!

If you want to freeze in groups of 3-6 that also works well. If you have a larger family, you may want to do groups of 6 or 12. Make sure they are double wrapped, so you don’t feal with freeze burn.

How to Heat Up Dinner Rolls

You can easily pop these dinner rolls in the oven again and reheat them up. I like to brush butter on top of the dinner rolls so that they are nice and buttery when they come out of the oven. You can also place them on a microwave-safe dish and pop them in the microwave in 20-second increments. I also like to place a little butter on top, so it melts on top of the roll.

Homemade Classic Dinner Rolls are fabulous in so many ways. You get to make these from scratch and it won’t take you any time at all, I promise. For once, you’ll have warm and doughy dinner rolls for your large family table and everyone will love them!

Here are more bread, rolls, and biscuits your family will enjoy!
