  • 1/4 cup warm water about 110 degrees
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm milk I recommend 2%, about 110 degrees
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 - 3 1/4 cups bread flour plus additional for surface
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated


  • Combine warm water and yeast in a small measuring cup or bowl. Let sit 5 minutes or until frothy. Meanwhile heat milk in 2 cup measuring cup in microwave to approximately 110 degrees. Add butter. Stir gently.
  • Using a large mixing bowl and fitted with flat beater combine yeast mixture and milk mixture together. Add egg and honey. Mix for 30 seconds. Stir in 3 cups flour and salt. Once fully combined switch to dough hook and scrape down sides of bowl. Increase speed to medium. After 2 minutes if dough still seems sticky add in up to 1/4 cup more flour. Knead for another 3-5 minutes or until dough comes together and is smooth. It should slaps sides of bowl and stick to the bottom. Let dough rest for 10 minutes
  • Lightly flour a smooth work surface. Plop dough down and flatten to a 1/2 inch or so rectangle. Divide into 12 equal pieces using a pizza cutter or dough scraper.
  • Roll each piece into a smooth round ball. Use the palm of your hand to roll gently until it pulls together.
  • Place dough balls in a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan and cover with a kitchen towel. Meanwhile preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Let rolls rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. When close to fully risen, mix together melted butter, garlic and Italian seasoning. Brush over rolls. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 17-25 minutes or until golden brown.
