  • cups All-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Water
  • 2 tablespoons Butter or Margarine
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic-herb seasoning
  • ½ tablespoon Garlic-herb seasoning (to top the rolls)


  • Combine 3/4 cup flour, sugar, dry yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl and stir until blended. Combine milk, water, and butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. 
  • Microwave on HIGH in 15-second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch. Add lukewarm water (heated to 120˚F-130˚F) and if you are not sure always use a thermometer to check the temperature. Add the milk+water mix to the flour mixture.
  • Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1/4 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  • Stir in the remaining flour. Add garlic-herb seasoning and mix. The dough will form into a ball.
  • Time to pamper the dough. Transfer the dough on to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. 
  • Transfer the dough to a bowl. Cover with a towel. As with any other bread, these garlic skillet rolls also need some time alone, therefore, let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Cut dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls using your hands. Place in greased  8-inch round or square pan.
  • Cover with towel; let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. For pillowy-soft and fluffy dinner rolls, the second rise is an important step. After the resting time, generously top these skillet rolls with garlic herb seasoning.
  • Bake in preheated 375ºF oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. These garlic rolls will bake up beautifully in a cast-iron skillet because cast iron retains the heat really well, and you end up with nice crusty rolls.
  • Brush the freshly-baked rolls with additional melted butter and serve warm. 


Can I freeze these garlic dinner rolls?
Yes, you sure can! These pull-apart dinner rolls can be frozen after baking. Once the baked rolls have cooled completely, wrap the skillet with a plastic wrap and store it in the freezer. Stays well for a month.
When ready to serve, allow the rolls to thaw at room temperature. Bake them again in a preheated oven for 5-7 minutes until evenly warm.
I don't have a cast iron skillet!
No worries. You can bake these delicious garlic herb dinner rolls in a round baking pan or a round oven-proof casserole dish.
What other toppings can I use other than Garlic herb?
You can swap garlic herb seasoning with - 
  • Rosemary and sea salt topping
  • Italian seasoning
  • Cajun seasoning
  • Sea salt and Chili flakes
  • Or simply leave them as is - Plain!
