Thanksgiving Rolls

Good morning! Friday again, wow this week flew by fast! I could use another day to get my work done so that I can relax this weekend. 

Squash Dinner Rolls
As I am on a roll, no bun, I mean pun intended, with Thanksgiving preparations I thought I would continue with bread or rolls as I prefer. I love yeast rolls! In fact, I could eat yeast rolls with lots of butter everyday.

Refridgerator Yeast Rolls

Sadly I cannot do that because I would have a butt as big as a Cinnabon! So I usually just eat them a few times a year at the holidays and family dinners.

Chive and Thyme Pull Apart Rolls

 There are lots, and lots, of great recipes and frankly I do not think you can go wrong with any of them.

Sour Cream Pocketbook Rolls

I am usually a purist, I really enjoy plain old fashioned yeast rolls, just like the ones my grandmother used to make.

Sweet Potato Biscuits

As with a few other items on my menu this year I am going to branch out and try the herb overnight yeast rolls. 

Orange Buttermilk Rolls

Do you make your own rolls for Thanksgiving dinner? Or do you pick them up from your local bakery?

Cloverleaf Honey Wheat Rolls

In addition to rolls for dinner I am also going to make some pumpkin cinnamon rolls to start to the day. I mean after all, if you are going to be a glutton you may as well begin at breakfast. Thankfully I do not eat turkey so I will not have to waste my calories on that.

Overnight Soft Herb Dinner Rolls

I hope that you are keeping warm and not one of the many without heat and power again.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Do you have some wonderful weekend plans? Or will you be working or relaxing at home?

Cinnamon Date Rolls

I will be doing a little of all of the above, and trying some new recipes. 

Cinnamon Breakfast Rolls

Enjoy your day and your weekend!


  1. I HEAR YA about the yeast rolls. Let me tell you, I can eat bread all day every day if I could, HERE IN THE STATES. In France or any other place where I could walk miles a day, that is not a problem! I used to love those yeast rolls that my mum made too. These days, we eat more turkey and French green beans and sweet potatoes with chopped apple, walnuts and cinnamon!


  2. Elizabeth you are making my mouth water. My mom use to make the best rolls from scratch, especially cinnamon and oragen rolls There is nothing like homemade roll are there, unless they're mine. I did not inherit my mothers skills for rolls!! I hope you have a terrific weekend. Not sure what we're doing but I do think it includes demo'ing a wall. FUN!!

  3. Elizabeth those herb dinner rolls look and some fabulous! That's one item I usually buy at the bakery but now I'm rethinking that idea.

    Hey I just tried polenta in slow cooker last night and it was so easy to make. I pinned a recipe on my board if you're interested. I threw in some rosemary to dress it up it was wonderful and so creamy!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  4. Yum...those rolls look so good right now! I love baked goods with yeast in them...have a great weekend!

  5. I love rolls of any kind. Bread is my weakness. I have made biscuits from scratch, but not rolls. I LOVE yeast rolls.

  6. You are killing me here! I LOVE bread way more than bread loves me and give me a hot buttery yeast roll and I am in total heaven. NO willpower when it comes to bread (or chcolate, pasta or cheese for that matter:) Everything looks soooooo good and a homemade roll is sublime!
    Happy weekend to you Elizabeth!

  7. oh, elizabeth! yeast rolls with butter make me soooooo happy. i cannot live without them. mouth is watering after this scrumptious post, and i am so looking forward to thanksgiving dinner.

    smiles to you.


  8. Yum! You must be everyone's favorite neighbor. You are always stirring up something amazing. I have always loved to bake bread. My rolls, nothing special, have already been requested for Thanksgiving. No turkey for you... oh my! Thanksgiving is the only time I roast a turkey and look forward to it all year. Have a wonderful weekend. Bonnie

  9. Ooh! You have my mouth watering. They all look absolutely divine. I would love any one of them with my coffee this morning.

  10. ..with butter of course! These look just delicious and I can imagine how your home smells while they bake. I think I'll try these for TG!

    Have a a wonderful weekend!
