🔄 Substitutions and Variations
- All Purpose Flour - instead of bread flour.
- Salted Butter - this can add a nice flavor to the garlic butter.
- Black Pepper - another flavor that could be added to the garlic butter.
- Olive Oil - brush with this instead of butter.
- Fresh Herbs - use your favorite with the parsley.
- Garlic Powder - instead of fresh garlic.
- Flaky Sea Salt - sprinkle some after brushing the butter on top.
- Parmesan Cheese - grated parmesan cheese on top of the rolls is divine.

I use a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment to kneed my dough. And bake in a 9x13" baking dish.

Store the garlic butter rolls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
You could keep them at room temperature, but that could only be for 1 day.
These dinner rolls freeze well, so store in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months.
Expert Tip: For the best warm place, heat the oven for a couple minutes then turn off. Store the bowl with the covered dough in here - it'll help the rolls to rise nicely.
Use a kitchen scale and weigh the flour out, for accuracy.
I like to brush with egg wash, for optimal browning.

All purpose flour is good to use too. Bread flour is my absolute favorite to use when making bread though, because of the protein content.
