I can’t think of anything better than a soft, warm dinner roll with melted butter slathered onto it to eat with my dinner. I’m a big fan of Sister Schuberts yeast rolls, but they aren’t so great for my hips so I avoid them at all costs. I can remember there was a point at which we had those with almost every meal at our house. We love them that much. Now I like to make sure we don’t double dose on carbs so I watch how many I include in our meals.
But rolls simply call my name sometimes. They taunt me with their bready and golden pillows of perfection. I smell their sweet, comforting scent that’s fill up the kitchen and feel compelled to grab the butter.
They remind me of potato chips in a way. There’s almost no way that I can eat just one. That’s why I at least try to make them a little more nutritious by making them wheat. I came across this Whole Wheat Rolls recipe at Salad in a Jar that looked easy enough and like it would make a great buns for some sliders that I was making. (Recipe to come!) So I decided to try it out and they turned out perfect!
And between you, me, and the fence post, I had a complete fail making wheat rolls just hours before I made this recipe so you can imagine my relief when these came out of my oven. It was funny too, because my husband came in to find these beauties while my disaster rolls were already at their fate in the trash can. I almost took a picture of them to show you. But I didn’t want you to be biased towards these, so I decided not to. 😉
If you’re looking for a wheat dinner roll recipe for sliders like I used them, or simply to complement your meal you should try this one!
