Thanksgiving Yeast Rolls



When your sister loves you and invites you for Thanksgiving, you want to bring something.  The only things she asked for are:

*For me to make the gravy.  This is very easy for me.  I was my grandma’s (Nana) gravy helper.  I can , usually , make lumpless gravy and enjoy chatting while stirring it.


*To bring rolls.  Well,  I love a good yeast roll.  I found a new recipe on .  (yesterday. )    EASY FLAKY PULL-APART dinner rolls. is the title of the recipe.   You can google it .   I tried it out and they were delicious.

They required two rises.  My uniformity was off, but the taste was spot on.   I will make them smaller next time  simply by cutting the dough into smaller pieces.

I’ve frozen the remaining,  half dozen rolls, and will thaw and see how best to reheat.  So with the big day of Thanks coming right up, and I have so much to be thankful for, I have to perfect the rolls.  I don’t want to be using my sister’s oven.  If they can be reheated quickly in the microwave that would be ideal.

Ok ,  Back to my surprise knit.  I’m almost finished.  Hope you enjoyed my baking post on my knitting blog, today.

  1. Those rolls look so yummy! We have to have a gluten free Thanksgiving this year because of Daughter’s Celiacs or else I would be making those too.


  2. Pro-reheating-tip…. put the rolls on a plate (or even a bowl works) cover with foil and put at the back of the stove. The heat of all the cooking things will quickly warm them!


  3. I need to check out that recipe! Lots of baking happened here for the first time in ages as we celebrated yesterday. Both local kids will be gone on Thursday, so we and a friend are going out!


  4. Oh I love bread. Any bread. Anytime. There’s a reason I need to lose weight! Ha ha! Your rolls look and sound absolutely wonderful. I’d like to make the gravy too. I used to help my grandma and she taught me her way of making it. Sometimes I think the old ways are the best don’t you? Have fun knitting. Blessings, Betsy


  5. Home made rolls are the best.

  6. Those rolls sound yummy. The smell of baking bread is the BEST smell. (Next to puppy breath and babies fresh out of a bath and all lotioned up.) I am trying to find a light and airy spelt roll recipe……not happening yet. Your blog, your rules. You want to post cooking on knitting blog… go for it!
