These Rosemary Dinner Rolls are perfect roll recipe for the holidays or any time of the year! Soft, tender, fluffy and deliciously flavored with fresh rosemary.
You might be thinking that the last thing you need is another roll recipe, but trust me when I tell you that you need this recipe in your life.
Say hello to these rosemary dinner rolls! They’re soft, pillowy and are studded with fresh rosemary. They are pretty spectacular and my boys would all agree. After making these rolls three times within just a few days, you’d think they would have been tired of them . . . they weren’t. Braydon probably could have eaten a dozen in one sitting.
These rolls are the perfect for a holiday meal as well as your regular run-of-the-meal weeknight meal. They are the perfect pairing with pretty much any soup or chili. One of these rolls dipped into a bowl of hot soup is just heavenly!
Now you’re probably not going to want to slather raspberry jam on these beauties, but some turkey, cranberries and stuffing piled on one of these would make the most delicious turkey sandwich ever!
Be sure to place them on the baking sheet so they are almost touching each other. After they raise they will be puffy and the sides should be touching. Before putting them in the oven brush them with a beaten egg and sprinkle them with some course sea salt if desired.
A FEW HELPFUL HINTS:
- I like to keep my rolls as close to the same size as I can, so I use a kitchen scale to weigh each dough ball. I use about 2.2 oz of dough per roll and get a dozen rolls. If you make them slightly smaller, you could get around 16 rolls.
- You can use dried rosemary, but I highly recommend fresh. If you use dried rosemary, use half of the amount.
- Don’t add too much flour. Start by adding 2 cups and then add 1/4 cup at a time. You may not use the full 3 cups or you might end up needing a little more. You want the dough to be soft and slightly tacky still.
- These rolls are best served warm so I suggest reheating them as necessary. You can pop them in the microwave for a few seconds or wrap them in foil and reheat them in the oven for a few minutes.
When you eat one of these rolls, please do me a favor and don’t skimp on the butter. My grandma used to always say you can never have much butter and she was right!
