Best Homemade Garlic Rolls

Homemade garlic rolls

Homemade garlic rolls: the most delicious alternative to regular bread!

Garlic rolls are a delightful culinary creation that never fails to tantalize the taste buds. These fluffy rolls are infused with the bold and aromatic flavor of garlic, making them a perfect accompaniment to various dishes or even a delectable snack on their own. The magic lies in the combination of soft, doughy bread and the pungent, savory notes of garlic, creating a mouthwatering treat.

The process of making garlic rolls begins with a basic bread dough, typically enriched with ingredients like butter and milk to ensure a tender texture. Once the dough has risen to perfection, it is rolled out into a rectangular shape. A generous amount of minced or crushed garlic is then spread evenly across the surface, ensuring that every bite carries a burst of garlicky goodness. The dough is then carefully rolled into a log and sliced into individual rolls, which are arranged closely together in a baking dish. As they bake, the garlic infuses the rolls, creating a heavenly aroma that fills the kitchen.

When served fresh out of the oven, garlic rolls are a treat for both the eyes and the taste buds. The exterior boasts a golden brown crust, while the interior remains soft and fluffy. Each bite delivers a delightful combination of the bread's warm, comforting flavor and the bold, savory essence of garlic. Whether paired with pasta dishes, soups, or enjoyed on their own, these garlicky delights are a true crowd-pleaser, leaving everyone craving for more


  • 400 g (3 1/4 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 50 g (1/4 cup) sugar
  • 5 g (1 tsp.) salt
  • 7g dry yeast
  • 250 ml (1 cup) warm milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 55 g (1/4 cup) butter
  • 8 g (1 tbsp.) chopped garlic

Garlic butter:

  • 8 g (1 tbsp.) minced garlic
  • 1 g (2 tsp.) dried parsley
  • 55 g 1/3 cup melted salted butter


In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and instant yeast.

Pour in milk and add one egg.

Knead the dough with a mixer for 5 minutes. Cover with a tea towel and leave to rest for 20 minutes.

Add softened butter and garlic and continue kneading until dough is elastic.

Transfer the dough to a bowl greased with oil, cover and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

Transfer the dough to a work surface, shape into a square and divide into 25 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball, cover and leave to rest for 15 minutes.

Deaerate the dough ball a little more by tucking in the edges and placing them in a greased mold. Cover and leave to rise for a further 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the garlic butter: In a bowl, combine the chopped garlic, dried parsley and melted butter, mixing well.

Brush the tops of the leavened rolls with garlic butter and bake in a preheated oven at 180C/350F for 15-17 minutes.

When the rolls are still warm, brush them with a little more garlic butter and enjoy!
