Dinner rolls are a staple on Thanksgiving tables, whether you like crusty rolls or soft, fluffy rolls, there is nothing better than hot bread slathered with butter. SIGH, I often have to really exercise some self-control. I could easily eat 3 dinner rolls at supper (I won't, I'll limit myself to two,but, man, I love bread). Amish Thanksgiving tables are no different than yours or mine: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and ROLLS...plenty of rolls!
So, drum "roll" (get it?), here are 5 dinner roll recipes you'll want to consider for your special supper!

NEWLY PUBLISHED! MENNONITE REFRIGERATOR ROLLS: This is a recipe that was just published on Amish365.com this morning, you do have to chill the dough overnight but the taste will be worth it. Check it out here.
KING ARTHUR'S AMISH DINNER ROLLS: This is a pretty easy recipe from King Arthur Flour. The photo looks appealing. Click here for the King Arthur Flour Amish Dinner Roll recipe. As an aside, many Amish cooks use Robinhood Flour...I'm not sure why, but that is something I've experienced from my earliest days visiting Amish kitchens...I guess that's not very.."correct" of me to put that in a post about King Arthur, but in the interest of providing a full picture, I wanted to throw that out there. Here is the King Arthur Amish dinner roll recipe.
HUTTERITE DINNER BUNS: So lucky to have found this recipe and anyone who lives in, say, Montana or South Dakota and has the occasion to buy Hutterite goods at Farmer's Markets, you know first-hand how wonderful of a baking tradition they enjoy. Now you can sample it in our own home with this Hutterite recipe. For newbies here, the Hutterites share many of the same religious roots as the Amish and Mennonites but they, centuries ago, branched off and began living communally which remains their cornerstone today. One of these days I will visit a Hutterite colony!
