This Parker House Rolls Recipe is a must make recipe for the upcoming holidays. Buttery, melt in your mouth delicious!
Thanksgiving is one week away. Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday I was sharing some of my family’s favorite Thanksgiving recipes last year. Like my Dreamy High Pumpkin Pie or Sweet Potato Casserole. I would never hear the end of it if I skipped making those two family favs.
This Parker House Rolls Recipe is that kind of recipe as well. Let’s face it, Turkey may think he’s the star of the show on Thanksgiving but we all know better. The rolls are the guys everyone is fighting over.
Just the aroma alone that fills your kitchen when you have a batch of these buttery dinner rolls baking is intoxicating. Now that’s what memories are made from.
The Parker House Hotel, now called the Omni Parker House is where these famous rolls where first made. There are many different versions of the Parker House Roll Recipe so I’m not quite sure what the actual ingredients of the original are but this is the one our family loves. It’s Bobby Flay’s version so you know it’s a show stopper.
Parker House Rolls Recipe
- 1 1/2 Cups Milk
- 1 Stick Unsalted Butter, Cut into pieces plus extra for brushing top of rolls
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1 Package Active dry yeast
- 1/2 Cup Warm water
- 3 Large Eggs ,lightly beaten
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
- 6 Cups All-purpose flour
- In a small saucepan bring milk to a simmer. Remove from the heat, stir in the butter and sugar. Let cool. Dissolve yeast in warm water and let sit until it activates and becomes foamy.(About 5 minutes) Combine milk mixture, eggs, yeast, salt, and 1/2 of the flour in a mixer with the dough hook attachment. Mix until smooth. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and stir until a smooth ball forms.
- Remove from the bowl and knead by hand on a floured surface for about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 60 to 70 minutes.
- On a floured surface, punch down the dough and shape into round balls. (I like to form a log with the dough first and then cut 24 evenly sized pieces. Then I roll into a round ball) Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Cover again and let rise until doubled, about 30 to 40 minutes.
- Preheat the oven 350 degrees F. while they are rising.
- Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter before serving.
