I know I say it ALL the time, but man, how did it get to be mid-November already?

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and this year I actually get to host. I’ve been planning my menu and collecting recipes for weeks. There are so many things I would love to try that  most definitely we will have WAY too much food for our small group, but you know those leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving.

Whether you are hosting yourself, or simply bringing a dish to share, it always helps to have plenty of  ideas to choose from, so I was very excited to partner with some friends to bring you more ideas than you could ever need. There is sure to be something for every one, from appetizers, and main dishes, to sides and of course dessert.  Consider this your one stop Thanksgiving recipe shop.

My contribution, harvest grain rolls.

I don’t know about you, but for me a holiday table  is not complete without fresh bread or rolls. These harvest grain rolls are probably my favorite, although these pumpkin wheat rolls were pretty darn good too.  They are loaded with whole grain goodness, but are anything but heavy. Mildly sweet, soft and buttery, they would make an excellent leftover turkey sandwich, that is is you have any rolls left. I’m betting we won’t have so much as a crumb leftover.

 Thanksgiving Recipe | Harvest Grain Dinner Rolls

harvest grain dinner rolls

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup flax, ground
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 envelope active dry yeast, I use Red Star
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter

Instructions

  • warm the milk with the butter, just until the butter begins the melt
  • combine all of the dry ingredients, including the yeast, and stir in the warm milk and butter
  • knead (either by hand or using a dough hook if a stand mixer) until you have slightly sticky but smooth ball
  • cover the dough and allow to rise until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours
  • punch the dough down, divide into 16 pieces, and roll each into a ball
  • place the rolls in a well greased baking dish, cover and allow to rise again for 1 hour
  • pre-heat the oven to 375
  • bake 20 - 25 minutes until the tops are a nice golden brown
  • remove form the oven
  • if you prefer a softer crust, brush with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven
  • serve warm
