The Best Soft Dinner Rolls Ever

These dinner rolls are perfect for Thanksgiving Dinner (or any other time). They are super easy to make, and the softest rolls you’ll ever make and are well worth the extra rise time they require.

My favorite way to enjoy these is fresh, warm, and with butter.

Soft Dinner Rolls

The key to making these rolls so soft is keeping your dough soft and giving them plenty of rising time. Also, the eggwash is completely optional, but you’ll miss the beautiful golden color that is provides.

I hope you enjoy them!
