Something about eating in a restaurant that gives you peanuts are cool. I have never understood how steakhouses would think to provide peanuts as an appetizer. I think of steakhouses as an out West kind of thing with cowboys. When I think of peanuts, I think of the South like Virginia. Any insight about the two combination?
I do like steakhouses but we rarely eat at any since it isn't my husband's first choice. We have ate at Texas Road House restaurant a couple of times. The restaurant serves a basket of rolls which are great. When I saw this recipe, I figured I would try it. The rolls are great. I did freeze half the recipe. These photos are from the freezer batch since there were no left overs from the first batch I had made. Yes, they are really good. I even had purchased some cinnamon butter and it was the perfect combination.Like Texas Road House Rolls
2 cups milk
3 Tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope of active dry yeast
1/2 cup water, around 100 degrees
8 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp salt
- Warm the milk in a large pot with the butter and sugar. Heat the milk to just below a simmer and allow to cool about 100 degrees.
- Add the yeast to the water and allow to sit for about 3 minutes.
- Add the yeast water to the milk and stir.
- Add two cups of flour and mix.
- Add the eggs and salt to the pot. Stir.
- Add 5 cups of flour and mix. The dough should be soft and not overly sticky. If the dough is sticky, add a little of the remaining flour.
- Place the dough onto a clean, floured surface.
- Knead the dough about 5 minutes.
- Place the dough in a grease bowl and flip it over. Cover the bowl and let rise about 1 hour.
- After the dough has doubled, punch it down. Let rest for 10 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 20-30 pieces. (Freeze at this stage if desired.)
- Allow the pieces to rise about 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake rolls for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
