Honey Glazed Dinner Rolls are soft fluffy dinner rolls perfect for any meal, your family will love these homemade rolls. The rolls can be served right out of the oven or you can serve them cold, they are perfect either way.
Honey butter rolls are made by substituting honey for the sugar that most bread recipes call for, and after they are baked they are brushed with melted butter and honey. The tops of the rolls have a bit of a sweet sticky top that is delicious.
These rolls will be perfect with just about anything that you make for a meal. My favorite thing to serve honey rolls with is a hot bowl of soup. It is the perfect combination. Also, if you don’t want the honey on top of the roll simply omit it, the rolls will still taste great!
Honey Dinner Rolls Ingredients
Honey Butter Glaze Ingredients
- Make sure that your yeast is fresh.
- Don’t use too much flour, your rolls will come out dry and crumbly.
- Make sure to set the dough in a warm spot to rise. If you need to add a little warm water to the sink and set the bowl in the warm water, it will do the trick.
- When making bread I go with more of the feel of the dough, than making sure I use the amount of flour the recipe calls for. The dough should be slightly sticky. You don’t want dough that does not lightly stick to your fingers, it would be too much flour.
- You can freeze these dinner rolls for up to 6 months. Make sure to freeze it in an air-tight container or wrap it well before freezing.

Mix one cup of flour, salt, and yeast together in a large bowl.
In a microwave-safe container combine the milk, butter, and honey and heat.
Add the heated milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir in.
Gradually add the remaining flour. Knead until smooth and elastic. Cover and place in a warm stop for about an hour or double in size.
Preheat the oven and grease a couple of baking sheets.
Divided the dough into 15 balls. Place them on the greased baking sheets and flatten them with your fingertips.
