No Knead Garlic Parmesan Dinner Rolls

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 3 hours
Total Time 3 hours 30 minutes


  • 4 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise™ Yeast
  • 1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup very warm milk
  • ½ cup very warm water
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of the flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Gradually add warm milk, water and butter. Beat two minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  2. Add 1 egg and ½ cup more of flour, beat two more minutes. With a spoon, stir in remaining flour (2 cups) to make a soft dough.
  3. Grease the top of the dough, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.
  4. Remove from refrigerator. Punch dough down. Remove dough to lightly floured surface. Divide in half and make 9 balls from each half of dough, rolling gently in hands. Place rolls into two, 9inch round baking pans (that have been lightly greased. Cover and let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about an hour.
  5. Beat remaining egg and brush over the top of the rolls. Sprinkle with the garlic salt, kosher salt and parmesan cheese. Bake at 375 degree F for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  6. Remove from pans and enjoy warm. Or allow to cool and store in airtight container.


  • I allowed my dough to rise for about 4 hours in the refrigerator.

  2. Making bread is one of the most rewarding experiences in the kitchen. And I totally get it. I used to be scared of yeast too!

  3. Made the dough yesterday, put it in the fridge and forgot about it. Took it out today and its perfect. Thanks for this Great recipe. Looking forward to making more stuff.

  4. These look so good Aimee! I used to be scared of yeast too. Now I get excited when my yeast proofs. Hehe. Perfect, light and fluffy with a nice hint of garlic & Parm! Win, Win!! 🙂

  5. I printed the recipe and even with a magnifying glass am having a hard time reading it. Guess I will have to hand copy it. It does sound good

    1. I would change the settings on your options when you print. My website can’t control that. ENJOY 🙂

  6. Isn’t it funny how we get scared of a certain product but when we start using it, it turns out easy? I used to hate yeast, until I started making pizza crust. Now that’s pretty easy. I guess I need to branch out into other things huh? I love that these rolls are no knead and have cheese and garlic in them!

  7. Yeast used to scare me, too, but I’ve got in under control now 🙂 Yum on the dinner rolls!

  8. There’s nothing like home made dinner rolls! Hard to resist since you don’t even have to knead!

  9. Baking with yeast doesn’t scare me, but I love the time saved not having to knead this dough! Who can say no to fresh bread?

  10. Seriously. I *just* ate dinner, and now all I can think about is these rolls. They’re gorgeous!

  11. Love that these are so easy they don’t even need kneading! No excuse to not make them then, right! 🙂 Pinned! And I think everyone was once scared of yeast but like you said, there’s nothing to be scared of!

  12. HAHA! How did you KNOW I was going to scroll down you jedi mind reader.
    I have recently been baking with yeast, and it totally isn’t as scary as I once thought…plus you added cheese. So, there’s that.

  13. I’ve been on a mission this year to get down and dirty with yeast. I used to always kind of shy away from yeasted bread recipes. But not anymore! These look delicious. I can just taste how fluffy and warm they are!
