Classic Parker House Roll Mix

SKU: M31-1


  • Made with buttermilk like the authentic 1867 recipe.
  • This package contains one mix. Each mix makes about 12 rolls.
  • SAF yeast packet is enclosed. You provide only water and butter/oil.
  • Directions and tips for perfect rolls are included. You can make this mix in your bread machine, by hand, or with a stand-type mixer. If you use your bread machine, you will form the rolls and bake them in your oven.

    These are easier to make than most dinner rolls because you don't have to shape them. You make three little dough balls, roll the balls through melted butter, and place them in a muffin tin. They're so easy, kids can help out!

    "Another great bread! Made the rolls with my 4 year old daughter and we enjoyed the process. My girl exclaimed "Two thumbs up!" -Elizabeth

    Don't miss these classic buttery dinner rolls. Parker House Rolls are perfect for guests and just right for the family. Now make them with the ease of your bread machine, with your stand-type mixer, or by hand.

    The original Boston Parker House Hotel Rolls, circa 1860, were folded with a pat of butter tucked in the fold. Competitors, in an effort of one-upmanship, adopted a fancier cloverleaf shape but kept the same rich, buttery texture.

    These heritage rolls are based on an 1867 recipe with which we took the liberty of adding the tang of buttermilk. You will find the buttermilk to be the perfect touch for these slightly crusty, light, brioche-like rolls.

    "I just LOVE these rolls. I made them for my Christmas dinner, and they were wonderful. I now plan to use the dough and turn them into cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing. Can't wait." -Betty Giguere

    They are easy to make and oh, so good. Your family will love them. Because these are nearly foolproof, you'll make perfect rolls every time. With their buttery goodness, your family will fall in love with them.

    These rolls are delicious!

    I just tried the classic Parker house roll mix and they turned out great! I used my bread machine for the kneading and initial rise. It takes a little time to divide the dough into 36 balls, roll in butter and put in pan, but it’s worth it in the end. The entire family gave them a 5 star rating. This recipe is a keeper!!

    Bought some of the bread as a gift and the rest was for my family. I always make my own home made bread but wanted to try your packaged mix. I loved it and couldn’t tell the difference. I am anxious to try the roll mixes!!
    I will definitely buy more of your mixes and recommend them highly!

    Dinner rolls

    Soft, fluffy, fantastic dinner rolls, at age 70 I use my bread maker on the dough setting, my youngest son fell in love with the cheddar herb, so I sent him some to try in the bread machine he had never used. He's hooked.
