Happy #SundaySupper! This week it is an honor to team up with LAND O LAKES® and feature their latest product, Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. Today’s theme is Simple and Fresh Summer Recipes. When you create a fresh summer meal with produce you bought at the local farmer’s market, chances are you’ll need some bread to accompany it. How about some Honey Butter Dinner Rolls? It only takes a few minutes to make the dough. Then while it is resting, you can finish prepping the rest of dinner.

I’ve made these dinner rolls several times before, once for Thanksgiving (or was it Christmas?) and again just last weekend to go along with some wedding soup. Since I recently made them with regular butter, I thought it would be a good test to use the Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. The butter is premeasured into half sticks with a flavor wrapper designed to keep the butter tasting fresher longer.
I will admit I still have a bit of a cold, so my palette isn’t very strong. I could tell there was a difference using the Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt, but if I had to blindly guess what was used, I’m not sure if I would’ve guessed Olive Oil & Sea Salt. It’s one of those deals where you would notice the difference without it rather than saying oh hey I taste olive oil and I taste sea salt. Does that make sense? Plus baking tones down the flavors, so the flavor would be stronger if you simply melted it in a skillet. I know because I made a quick orzo dinner with it.
At first glance, this recipe may seem time-consuming, but most of it is resting and rising time. While you are waiting, you can finish prepping dinner. They only take a little over 10 minutes to bake, so you can pop them in the oven when dinner is almost ready. Fresh and simple indeed.
This recipe involves yeast, but don’t be scared! This is a low-key recipe for those who are new to baking with yeast. It is important you measure your water temperature. Too cold means the yeast won’t activate. Too hot and the yeast will die. There is a little bit of kneading involved, but I find that very relaxing. Then you break the yeast into balls and place them into a round cake pan. This gives the dinner rolls a bit of a rustic look after you break them apart. Then you brush these fluffy dinner rolls with a honey butter glaze.

- 2 – 2 1/2 cups flour
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 package (1/4 oz) yeast
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 3/4 cup warm water (120 – 130 degrees)
- 3 Tbsp LAND O LAKES® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt, divided (or unsalted butter + 1/2 tsp salt)
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tsp honey
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp onion powder
- Pinch of sea salt
- In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt (if using). Add water and 2 Tbsp butter. Beat for 3 minutes or until smooth. Turn off the mixer. With a spoon, stir in the cheese and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (1/2 – 1 cup).
- On lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 4-6 minutes. You may need to add a little bit more flour if the dough is still sticky, but don’t add too much. Cover and rest for 10 minutes.
- Grease a 9-inch round pan. Divide the dough into 12 pieces, shape into balls, and place in the pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375F. When ready, bake the rolls 11-14 minutes or until lightly browned.
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 Tbsp butter, honey, garlic powder, and onion powder. Brush over the warm rolls and sprinkle with some sea salt. Let cool until the glaze sets.
