Like Logan's Roadhouse Dinner Rolls

I made these for Father's Day. Everyone loved them and thought they tasted just like the restaurant ones. They were easy to make. I used a jelly roll pan and got 18 good sized rolls.

LIKE LOGAN'S ROADHOUSE DINNER ROLLS
Carol on Taste of Home BB

SPONGE:
1/2 c. warm water (105-110 degrees)
1 tsp. granulated sugar
1 (1/4 oz.) pkg. active dry yeast

DOUGH:
1/2 c. warm milk (105-110 degrees)
1 egg
1/3 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. granulated sugar (can use as little as 1 Tbsp. sugar up to 1/3 c. sugar-it all depends on how sweet you like your dinner rolls)
1 tsp. salt
3-3 1/2 c. bread flour

GLAZE:
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. honey

To make the sponge, stir yeast and 1 tsp. sugar in warm water until yeast and sugar are dissolved; let sit until mixture is foamy, about 15 minutes.

To make the dough, combine milk, sugar, butter and salt in a large bowl, mixing well. Add egg and yeast mixture; mix well. Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough.
  Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 8-10 minutes.

Butter the inside of a large bowl. Add dough; turn dough to coat surface. Cover with plastic wrap or a clean linen or cloth towel and let rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour.

Punch down dough. Shape dough into rolls. The amount of rolls you get out of 1 batch depends on how big or small you make them. I prefer pan rolls so I weigh the dough and make the 2 greased 8" round cake pans-9 rolls in each pan. Each piece of dough used weighs 1.9 oz. I shape them into round balls, but you can shape this lovely dough into any roll shape you choose. Rolls can also be baked in 1 greased 13x9-inch pan or on greased baking sheets-it's up to you. Once you decide on the shape, place the rolls in or on the greased pan(s), cover LIGHTLY with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or a clean linen or cotton towel and let rise until double, 20-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.**Beth used a Jelly roll pan and got 18 rolls.

For the glaze, melt butter in a small saucepan; stir in honey until well mixed.
Brush the honey-butter mixture generously over tops of rolls. If there is any honey-butter mixture left over, you can use it to brush the tops of the rolls again when they come out of the oven.

Bake @ 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until rolls are golden brown. Remove from oven; brush with any remaining honey butter if desired. Immediately remove from pans
