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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You'll love the make-ahead nature of these refrigerator rolls. Whip up the dough and store it in the fridge for up to a week. When you're ready to have hot, baked bread for dinner, roll them into buns, let them rise and bake—Voila - hot yeast rolls for any occasion.
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.
