Hold the steak, hold the loaded baked potato and hold the Cactus Blossom. The real reason we go to Texas Roadhouse is for their fresh rolls and creamy whipped Texas Roadhouse butter.

Why Texas Roadhouse only serves four dinner rolls with their famous cinnamon honey butter is beyond us. It never lasts more than 5 seconds on a table. While the rolls are good on their own, it’s the whipped butter infused with the perfect balance of cinnamon and honey that takes these pillowy orbs of carb heaven to the next level. Luckily, you can now bring a little smear of Texas butter bliss into your kitchen.

Of course, it’s important to use good butter, so pick up one of our favorite butter brands before you start.
