There can be as many as 180 calories in a dinner roll, so if you are trying to cut back on your calorie intake, it is important to be aware of the number.
One small sized dinner roll contains about 85 calories. Add a little butter and that number goes up to around 120 calories. One large sized dinner roll can contain 180 calories by itself, not to mention the butter which can contribute an additional 50 calories. The size of the roll will determine how many calories are found in it. If you are trying to cut back on the number of calories you consume throughout the day and want to enjoy a dinner roll with your meal, tear that bread in half especially if it is big! Rather than consuming a large dinner roll, tear off a piece of it and enjoy eating only half. You can still enjoy the taste of the bread without eating too much of it.
If trying to lose weight, or cut back, it is important to pay attention to how much butter you use on the roll. Rather than adding a tablespoon of butter, look for a light alternative spread, such as light cream cheese. You dont have to soak your bread in butter, but can even eat it plain because of the high number of calories in a dinner roll.
