My mom has been making this homemade dinner rolls recipe for years and they’re absolutely divine. They make your house small amazing and the recipe makes perfectly soft and fluffy jumbo dinner rolls. The dough is extra soft and tender thanks to the addition of butter, milk, and eggs! So tasty and perfect for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner table.
New to baking with yeast? Don’t worry, these are the easiest rolls ever! Seriously, they’re fool-proof (even if baking rolls has given you trouble in the past).
I’m working hard at making sure that all of my favorite recipes are up-to-date and ready for you to make.
This dinner roll recipe makes big, fluffy dinner rolls that your whole family will love to eat. They simply turn out great every time. My mom has a handful of recipes that she’s “known for,” and this, my friends, is her nearly famous dinner roll recipe. She makes it for all the major holidays and family functions, and when she flies out west to visit all the grandbabies, we always request a batch of her famous dinner rolls. They are the stuff childhood memories are made of.
