Easy Dinner Rolls

Yield: 24 rolls


  • 1 package (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional melted butter, optional


  1. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine yeast and warm water. Let stand until yeast is foamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat in flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough is stiff and not sticky. With your hands, gently form a smooth, round ball of dough.
  2. Lightly coat a large bowl with olive oil. Place dough into the bowl. Cover with a clean, dry towel or plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours or up to 3 days.
  3. When ready to bake, grease a 13 x 9-inch pan. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 24 equal-sized pieces (a pastry cutter can help with this). Form each piece into a smooth round ball; place balls in even rows (6 rows by 4 rows) in the prepared pan. Cover with a dish towel and let dough balls rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375° F. Bake until rolls are golden brown, 15-20 minutes. If the tops are browning too fast, cover rolls with aluminum foil until finished baking. Brush warm rolls with melted butter, if desired, and serve.
  5. Enjoy!

  13. 5 stars
    I made these rolls on Sunday and they were delicious! Did have to use 3 cups of flour after misreading the recipe liquid volume and insufficient salt (does need the full teaspoon) and they still came out looking the same as in your pictures. Used the leftover dough this evening to make ‘calzones’ using leftover meat sauce as the filling. My family enjoyed this recipe. Thank you/angela

  14. hi! I was searching for easy dinner rolls recipe and was wondering if I can use instant dry yeast instead? I live in the Philippines and I don’t see any active dry yeast in the grocery. Do I still need to proof it? Thanks! :)

  15. Instant yeast is fine, but there is no need to dissolve it in water before using.

  16. How long will the dough keep

  17. Honestly, I’m not exactly sure but refrigerated up to 1 day should be fine. However, I’d recommend making the rolls the same day you make the dough.
