In a bowl, combine warm milk, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the melted butter and activated yeast mixture. Mix until a dough forms.


Knead the dough on a floured surface for 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.


Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until it doubles in size.


Punch down the risen dough and divide it into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into a round ball.


Place the shaped rolls in a greased baking pan, leaving a small gap between each.


Cover the pan with a damp cloth and let the rolls rise for an additional 30-45 minutes.


Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).


Brush the risen rolls with beaten egg for a shiny finish.


Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.


Optionally, brush the warm rolls with melted butter for added richness.


Allow the Homemade Dinner Rolls to cool slightly before serving.
