Honey Butter Dinner Rolls
Serves: 12 rolls
  • 2 - 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 cup warm water (120F-130F degrees)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Honey Butter
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
For the rolls:
  1. In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, salt, yeast, garlic powder, and onion powder. Add water and melted 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375F. When ready, bake the rolls 11-14 minutes or until lightly browned.
For the honey butter:
  1. In a small bowl, combine butter, honey, garlic powder, and onion powder. Brush over the warm rolls and sprinkle with some sea salt. Let cool until the glaze sets.
