Happy Thanksgiving! Well, to my Canadian friends at least. I know all you Americans won’t be celebrating for another month! But when you DO start planning your Thanksgiving meal, keep these dinner rolls in mind!
We had our Thanksgiving meal yesterday, and these buns were the perfect compliment to the turkey dinner. I know a lot of people (my husband included!) think that bread is just a waste of time when you’re having turkey dinner. He figures there are just too many good things to eat to bother with bread. But I always like to have buns with turkey dinner, even though there ARE so many other good things to eat!
These dinner rolls came from my obsession with putting pumpkin in everything. But don’t worry, they don’t taste like pumpkin, you actually can’t really tell it’s in there, it just helps make them really soft and fluffy. Even though they’re whole wheat. They come together quickly, especially if you have a stand mixer to do the kneading, and can easily be frozen, like any bread, if you want to make them ahead of time.
These buns were perfect, and I’m looking forward to turkey sandwiches on them with the leftovers! What do you think, bread or no bread with turkey dinner? Do you agree that it’s a waste of time, or does it need to be there?!
