These Sage Parmesan Garlic Buns are the best buns you will ever make. Fluffy and buttery rolls topped with garlic and sage are too good to pass on!
This chilly weather calls for one thing: Homemade rolls with herb butter and soup!
Homemade bread is one of my favorite things to bake and fall is the best season for that. As fall recipes are mostly soup and chili, rolls would be a great side to pair with those recipes and there’s almost nothing out there that can beat homemade rolls!
These garlic buns are a family favorite that I bet you will love, too. They’re fluffy, airy and full of great flavors. These are basic rolls that are brushed with a mixture that I would like to call “magic butter”. It’s melted butter with sage, garlic and Parmesan cheese. I think we can all agree that this is kinda magic. Like these garlic butter mashed potatoes, these buns are also perfect for any occasion, from a simple family dinner to large gatherings to Thanksgiving or Christmas parties!
The smell of sage in butter is so heavenly, I can spend the rest of my life frying sage in butter with garlic and not complain. Now imagine this amazing mixture on top of airy and light buns. That’s why I’m telling you these garlic buns are something that you don’t want to miss, especially for Thanksgiving dinner!
Notes and tips to make these sage Parmesan garlic buns:
- I used instant yeast to make these rolls, you can simply use active dry yeast instead. If using active dry yeast, make sure to dissolve it in water (follow the package instructions) before mixing it into the dough.
- If the weather is cold where you live, wrap the bowl in a kitchen towel and let it rise. do the same for the second rise, too.
- You can make more garlic, butter and sage mixture and brush some more on the rolls once they’re out of the oven.
- Keep the leftovers in an airtight container to keep them fresh for up to 3 days.
- It’s optional to use garlic and onion butter in the dough but I strongly recommend it. You can also add fresh chopped rosemary and thyme to the garlic butter mixture.
