What are garlic parmesan dinner rolls?
These super soft dinner rolls have a buttery, fluffy inside, a golden brown crust and the most scrumptious, salty garlic parmesan topping that perfectly complements any classic meal. These rolls are perfect with a creamy tomato soup, a saucy pasta dish, and obviously a must in your holiday bread basket.
And the only way to make homemade bread is with Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast.

You get pillowy soft, bakery-worthy rolls in AN HOUR.

Tips for making homemade dinner rolls
Let’s address the elephant in the room. I know homemade dinner rolls can sound intimidating, but once you get the hang of making bread it’s actually a really fun activity. Plus there’s something super satisfying and therapeutic about kneading, resting, and shaping bread. And it certainly doesn’t hurt that they’re just plain delicious to consume.
Use Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast: We love using Fleischmann’s® yeast in our recipes because it is super reliable, easy to use (no need to hydrate it in water!), and their website has a wealth of knowledge if you’re new to baking with yeast. From which kind of yeast works for which recipes, how to activate your yeast, and everything in between Fleischmann’s® is your one stop shop for all there is to know about homemade bread!
Go overboard on the topping: The texture of these homemade dinner rolls is unparalleled. They’re soft, yeasty, fluffy, and downright delicious. So you’re going to need a strong garlic parmesan topping to match. The salty, cheesy topping will perfectly complement the rolls!
Don’t over bake your dinner rolls: Remember that your rolls will continue to cook as they cool off so your rolls should be slightly underbaked when you take them out of the oven! This will keep them super soft and pillowy and prevent them from drying out.
Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl.
Heat milk, water, and 1/4 cup butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Stir into flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
Add the egg and 1/2 cup more of the flour. Beat for 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. (Or, if desired, place dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow it to rise in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours.)
Divide dough in into 20 even portions and roll each piece into a smooth ball. Brush each dough ball melted butter and sprinkle with a heaping spoonful of the parmesan and garlic mixture. Arrange in rows ¼ inch apart to allow room to expand. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
Once rolls are proofed, preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake the rolls for 18 minutes or until golden brown and hollow sounding when you tap on the bottom of a roll.
