Maddox Dinner Rolls

by Laura

Today’s recipe is a version of rolls like the ones found at Maddox Ranch House in Perry, Utah.  It has always been a treat to eat at Maddox.  They are well known for their fried chicken and turkey steaks along with their rolls and pies.  I have been in love with their Maddox dinner rolls.  They serve them with raspberry butter.  Their rolls are so light and pillowy.

I was excited to discover a recipe out there on the internet for a version of their rolls.  These aren’t exactly the same, but the closet thing I had found so far!  Since I don’t get to Perry, Utah very often these will have to do when I get a craving.  They are perfect for Easter dinner.  You can serve the Maddox dinner rolls up with raspberry butter and I also have another flavored butter recipe for you tomorrow that I am also in love with!

Maddox Dinner Rolls


  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 Tbsp yeast
  • 1/2 cup of warm water
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 5 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour


  1. In a saucepan, add the salt, milk, and butter. Cook over medium heat until the butter is melted. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. In a bowl, combine the yeast and warm water. Add a sprinkle of the 1/2 of sugar to the yeast and let sit for a few minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture, sugar, eggs, cooled milk mixture and flour. Stir just until blended and no lumps of flour remain. Do not over mix. The dough will be sticky and very loose and be more batter like.
  4. Let the batter/dough rise until double (about 90 minutes).
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spoon it into 36 greased muffin tins. Fill 1/2 of the way. Let it raise again until the dough is slightly domed out of the muffin tin.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.
  7. Cool on a wire rack. Makes about 36 dinner sized rolls.

I have never heard of Maddox, but these rolls look just like the ones my mom used to make growing up! Can’t wait to try them.=) Always up for warm bread.

These look wonderful, I’m always a sucker for dinner rolls that look this good!

That’s so crazy! A friend of mine (from my hometown in Texas) family owns the Maddox restaurant. She always talked about visiting her grandparents and working at the restaurant in the summer and always raved about the food. I have never been but maybe one day I’ll make it out there to try the food myself! In the meantime I’ll have to give the rolls a go! And raspberry butter, that sounds amazing!
