Homemade Bread and Rolls for Thanksgiving Dinner
I don't make homemade bread or rolls all that often, but for the holidays, I make the effort. If you're the same way these Thanksgiving breads will make you a superstar to your friends and family. You'll find everything from soft, flaky yeast breads to buttery crumbly cornbreads, domed, airy popovers and sweet quick breads in this collection. Any one of these homemade rolls or bread recipes would be welcome on your Thanksgiving holiday table.
Hatch Pepper Skillet Cornbread Recipe
Instead of store-bought rolls for your Thanksgiving bread accompaniment, bring in a showstopper. Cornbread fans will love this ultimate skillet cornbread (loaded with Southwestern flavors). Filled with corn, hatch chiles, roasted red pepper and of course cheddar cheese. Serve in a cast iron skillet (to keep the bread warm) and cut into wedges to go with your holiday meal.
Cheddar Chive Popovers
No kneading, proofing or rising required, these easy popovers are even low in carbs and high in protein. Best if you have a popover pan, but you can also make them in a muffin tin. The popover batter does need to rest for 15 minutes before baking. Also, these cheddar chive popovers are cooked at a higher temperature for 20 minutes before lowering it to finish baking. Timing on this Thanksgiving bread is crucial -- make sure you're using a timer.
Soft Parmesan Dinner Rolls
When you just want a big batch of soft, melt-in-your-mouth homemade rolls, these parmesan dinner rolls are the best. Airy and light and perfect for sopping up excess gravy and cranberry sauce. This is the bread everyone wants at Thanksgiving.
Homemade Crescent Rolls
Skip the Pillsbury dough boy and make your own soft, buttery, yeasty crescent rolls. Makes a large batch of rolls and any leftovers are delicious for breakfast the next day. This recipe is pretty foolproof, so even novice bakers can feel confident with these yeast rolls.
Parmesan Black Pepper Buttermilk Biscuits
When you want flaky, layered buttermilk biscuits, start with this simple butter-flecked dough. Use a biscuit cutter to cut thick rounds (don't twist the cutter or the biscuits won't rise).
Garlic Herb Parker House Rolls Recipe
Parker House Rolls have that classic, tell-tale butter fold that makes them irresistible. This recipe makes a 13x9 inch pan of pure buttery, garlicky bliss.
One of the first homemade rolls I ever attempted, Anadama rolls are hearty, yeasty with a hint of molasses. I like to seed the bread with poppy and benne seeds, but you can use your favorites too.
Country Ham Biscuits with Apricot Butter
These are called angel flake biscuits and they're a very different style than what you might be used to. They're made with yeast AND baking powder with no salt added. That's because you fill them with salty country ham and a slather of apricot butter. Honestly, I could skip the turkey and trimmings if these ham biscuits were on the buffet.
Aunt Lynne's Famous Super Moist Pumpkin Bread Recipe
Thanksgiving isn't complete without pumpkin bread and this recipe has been one of the most popular one's on my website since I shared it over 8 years ago. No wonder. It's my Aunt Lynne's recipe and it's perfectly spiced, sweet and flavorful. No nuts in this one, though you could add some if you like. It's a MUST MAKE.
Bourbon Brown Sugar Banana Bread
This sweet bread is rich and flavorful, studded with crunchy nuts and spiked with bourbon. Add a few slices of this quick bread to your bread basket and watch it get gobbled up.
Hatch Green Chili Bread
This may look like a simple quick bread, but this heavenly loaf is savory and sweet with a little heat. This hatch chili bread is really nice with grilled or smoked turkey, chicken, pork and beef.
