Sourdough Roll Roundup! These are the best rolls using sourdough for your Thanksgiving dinner. For many of these, you can make the dough ahead of time. Shape them and bake them the day of. There’s nothing better than having hot fresh rolls with a Thanksgiving dinner. So which ones will you be making? Have your pick! Any of these would make the best sourdough rolls for Thanksgiving dinner!
Discard Rolls: These are the best sourdough rolls for Thanksgiving discard recipes. If you want something quick, easy and delicious with a little sourdough tang, you can’t go wrong with these sourdough discard options.
This is the most popular recipe on my website for a reason! Soft, tender and delicious. These are easy to knead together and the only “surprise” ingredient is cornstarch, which makes them very tender and fluffy. These are a fan favorite for good reason!
These are the perfect rolls to make with leftover mashed potatoes, or even the day of after you make your mashed potatoes. I don’t know that I’ve ever had a roll I love the texture of more than these sourdough discard mashed potato rolls. So tender and delicious thanks to the mashed potato in the recipe. Definitely make these the day after Thanksgiving to enjoy with all that leftover turkey!
Natural Yeast Rolls: These rolls are all made with 100% sourdough, natural fermentation. They will take longer to make start to finish but have the full health benefits from the fermentation and taste incredible.
I have a special place in my heart for these sourdough no knead crescent rolls. This is such an easy recipe. Mix up the easy dough, let it sit to ferment for awhile. Refrigerate it overnight and then roll out, roll up and let rise again. Couldn’t be easier and they are so fun to pull apart and eat with a Thanksgiving dinner. I’ve made these rolls the past few Thanksgivings and they are a hit every time.
Do you love Hawaiian rolls? These sweet sourdough Hawaiian rolls are probably the sweetest roll I have on my website, but boy are they delicious. Tender, fluffy and sweetened with pineapple juice and some sugar, these rolls are a hit wherever I bring them. If you love a sweeter Hawaiian-style roll, these would make the perfect roll for your Thanksgiving.
The most similar to a sourdough artisan bread out of all these rolls, these sourdough ciabatta rolls are easy to make and delicious. If you can make a loaf of artisan bread, these rolls are even easier! Just cut your artisan dough into pieces, let them rise and bake on a baking sheet. You can make these rolls as big or small as you want. If you want an artisan-style roll, you can’t go wrong with a sourdough ciabatta.
I think this is the softest recipe out of the whole bunch. Super soft and tender, these rolls are made with shortening instead of butter, making them light and tender. I add some melted butter on top and in the middle. They are rolled a unique way and definitely make a statement on the dinner table. If you’re looking for the softest roll possible, I would pick this one!
Parmesan herb sourdough rolls are rolled into balls and then coated in a buttery parmesan herb mixture before rising. This gives these rolls a unique crust and a delicious flavor. I also add some parmesan cheese into the dough itself, making them extra delicious as a sourdough version – just a hint of tanginess with the cheese pairs so nicely. If you want a little bit crispy on the outside but soft and tender in the middle with flavor, this is the recipe for you this year. Definitely one of my favorites!
A pretzel bun but in roll form, these sourdough pretzel rolls are delicious. With an outer pretzel flavor and crust but the soft and chewy middle we all know and love from a pretzel, these sourdough pretzel rolls taste so yummy and would be perfect with Thanksgiving leftovers. If you love anything pretzel, you’ll want to make this recipe for your Thanksgiving this year.
No-Yeast Options: And if you want a quick option that doesn’t take much time, try some of these biscuit-style rolls. They will taste delicious with a Thanksgiving spread.
These sourdough cheddar biscuits are quick and easy and taste so delicious with the cold sourdough discard from the fridge. The flavor combination of sourdough discard and sharp cheddar cheese is incredible and if you don’t have time for yeast rolls, these are easy to make and taste incredible.
If you’re looking for a make-ahead option, these flaky sourdough biscuits are incredible. So many flaky layers and you can whip these up, freeze them before baking and bake straight from the freezer. Talk about easy and delicious! Just add a few extra minutes of bake time and you’ll have flaky and tender biscuits in no time. Perfect for your Thanksgiving table!
And last but not least, if you are more of a cornbread fan than a biscuit fan, you can’t go wrong with this sourdough discard cornbread. Definitely more of a West Coast style cornbread (my kids call it “corn cake”), but delicious with a Thanksgiving dinner in its own right.
Which one are you making for Thanksgiving? I’d love for you to leave me a comment on this post and let me know!
