I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Parker Rolls
...in your mind.

Parker Rolls


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Neutral oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Kosher salt or sea salt


  1. Put the milk, water, butter and sugar in a small pot – slowly warm up until butter melts, but don’t let get beyond about 115 degrees
  2. Sprinkle the yeast over the top, stir and let sit until the yeast becomes foamy, 4-5 minutes. If it doesn’t, your yeast is no bueno, so throw it out and start again. Sorry if this happens
  3. Put the flour & salt in the bowl of a stand mixer, and using the dough hook give it a brief mix to combine.
  4. Beat one of the eggs with the extra yolk, and add that along with the yeast mixture to the flour in the mixing bowl
  5. Knead on medium (about 5 minutes) or until the dough is smooth, and just slightly tacky
  6. Put into a large, lightly greased (oil or butter) glass bowl, cover with a towel and put in a slightly warm (not drafty) spot for one hour, or until it has doubled in size (my favorite part)
  7. Lightly flour a flat surface, poke 3 fingers into the dough to slightly deflate it, and turn the dough out onto the counter. Knead a couple minutes, and separate into 15 equal pieces
  8. Shape into smooth, round balls by pulling the edges towards the bottom to gather tightly
  9. Put into a butter greased 9x13 dish, or large cast iron pan, cover again with a towel and let rise about 30 minutes
  10. Preheat your oven to 350
  11. Beat the last egg with 1 tablespoon of water, and brush the rolls
  12. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the rolls have lightly browned and doubled in size – I like to brush them about halfway through again with the egg wash
  13. Remove from over, melt the butter with the honey, brush over the top and lightly sprinkle with the salt
