Ah, the holidays. This time of year is food blogger heaven, both for the amount of food to make, as well as creative recipes to photograph and publish. It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is coming up in just a few short weeks!
I’ve made no secret in years past that I don’t go nuts for Thanksgiving like a lot of people do. Jay is always telling me I should get more into it, because if there’s a designated “foodie” holiday, Thanksgiving is it. My dislike of turkey overshadows a lot of it, though I’ve made turkey most years, because Jay and the bambino really enjoy it, and I enjoy creating things from the leftovers.
For me, I could skip the turkey and go straight for the sides. Mashed potatoes, green beans (NOT the abomination of a casserole with the crunchy onions on top), gravy, cranberry sauce, and of course, soft, fluffy dinner rolls to sop up every last bit. And while we’re not doing a traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year, there’s no reason these Salt and Pepper Dinner Rolls can’t be part of the meal.
Soft, slightly sweet, though the sweetness is tempered by the salt and pepper on top, these are a dinner roll lover’s dream. I made them with Immaculate Baking Company’s All-Purpose Organic Flour, and they turned out beautifully. Immaculate Baking Company is based is Minneapolis, and their mission is to make wholesome baking products, many of which (like the flour) are organic, or gluten-free. I’ve been using them for a couple years now, and they’re great if you don’t feel like baking from scratch.
And they’ve got A LOT of baking products–Cookie doughs, cookie mixes, crescent rolls, cake mixes, cinnamon rolls. Use their store locator to find which ones are available in your area, though you’re going to want to call ahead and make sure your store has them in stock. You can also find loads of recipe inspiration on their website, and to help with your holiday baking, they’re offering a $1.00 off coupon for any of their products!
