Soft dinner rolls

I'm looking for great dinner rolls, maybe three inches across--soft, not a crisp crust. Any recommendations?

  1. Like a Parker House Roll?

    I've been on the lookout for some good ones for years. I can't think of anywhere that matches what we are looking for.

    1. re: St Paul Susie

      PJ Murphys has a decent soft parker house roll. If anyone is still searching.....

    2. For special dinners I love the Hawaian products, most super markets carry, warm em up add a little butter, mmmmmmmm

      1. In the freezer section at any grocery store, pick up Rhodes rolls, let them raise, bake, brush tops with melted butter and crush some kosher salt over the top. Wonderful and simple.

        Additionally, I will occasionally let these rise, chop into pieces and then fill cupcake pans with this and a brown sugar, Karo syrup, quality butter mix. I then top with pan roasted nuts and bake. I let these cool and then freeze for quick, decadent breakfast rolls.

        1. Great Harvest on Selby. Brought home a dozen, consumed by the two of us in less than 48 hours. Awesome.

          1. A Baker's Wife on S. 42nd St. And 28th Ave. They are a staple every thanksgiving. Buy twice as many as you think you'll need, though, because they will disappear fast.
