Cornmeal Rolls

If you follow me on facebook, you’ll know that we just had an amazing weekend with friends and family. We had our little Rachel blessed and sealed to us in the temple.

It was such a special experience that all of us will remember forever. We are so grateful to have her in our family; she is such a joy!! It was awesome having our extended family here to share this time with us. I wish the weekend could have lasted a little longer.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought it was probably time to start sharing some Thanksgiving worthy recipes. I love homemade bread and rolls. Like a lot.  I am always up for trying new recipes for yeast rolls. I found a recipe for cornmeal rolls ages ago, and I finally got around to making them. They were super yummy and a nice change from my favorite roll recipe. The cornmeal adds a slightly nutty flavor, and the rolls are a pretty golden yellow color. I think they would be a fabulous addition to Thanksgiving dinner. Because you can’t have Thanksgiving without homemade rolls. At least I can’t!

What is your one “can’t have Thanksgiving without it” food? I wanna know! 🙂

Cornmeal Rolls

1 2/3 cups milk
2/3 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp instant yeast (I use SAF brand)
1/4 cup warm water
2 eggs
1 cup freshly ground white wheat flour (or 1 cup all purpose flour)
3 cups flour

Bring milk to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Stir in cornmeal and whisk for 3-4 minutes or till thickened. Remove from heat and add sugar, butter, and salt. Cool to lukewarm. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add cornmeal mixture, eggs, and wheat flour. Beat until smooth. Gradually add enough flour to make a soft and slightly sticky dough. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Form dough into balls and place on greased cookie sheet or in a 9×13″ pan. Let rise till doubled (usually about 30-40 minutes). Bake at 350° for about 20-25 minutes or till lightly brown. Brush with butter while still hot.

-Makes about 15-18 rolls

  2. Congratulations on your sealing. What an awsome experience for your boys (and you and your husband of course.)

  3. Congratulations!! I bet the temple workers were all a buzz for your sealing…

    Can’t live without homemade rolls for Thanksgiving. It’s a busy day, so I make my rolls the night before, pop them in the fridge and bake them the next day. If I don’t have room in the fridge, I put them in the garage (during the winter). I’ve also discovered that freezing rolls free ahead of time free up my day as well!

  4. So happy for your great day! Love the roll recipe- I am much to lazy for homemade. 😉 My assignment this year? Green bean casserole.
