Sourdough Dinner Rolls Recipe

These Sourdough Dinner Rolls are a delightful addition to any meal, boasting a tangy flavor and soft, fluffy texture. Perfectly complementing soups, stews, or holiday feasts, they are a versatile and comforting choice for any occasion.

Why You’ll Love This Sourdough Dinner Rolls:

These dinner rolls are made with sourdough starter, adding depth of flavor and a slight tanginess. They’re easy to make, freeze well, and can be enjoyed fresh out of the oven or reheated.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup active sourdough starter
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Additional melted butter for brushing

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine sourdough starter, warm milk, melted butter, honey, and eggs. Mix well.
  2. Add flour and salt to the mixture. Stir until a soft dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.
  5. Punch down the dough and divide it into 12 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place them in a greased baking dish.
  6. Cover the rolls and let them rise again until doubled about 1 hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Brush the risen rolls with melted butter.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Brush with more melted butter immediately after removing from the oven. Serve warm.

Serving Suggestions:

These sourdough dinner rolls are delicious and served alongside soups, salads, or as part of a holiday dinner spread. For a twist, sprinkle sesame seeds or sea salt on top before baking.

How to Store Sourdough Dinner Rolls:

Store leftover rolls in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. To freeze, wrap individually in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag for up to 1 month. Reheat thawed rolls in a 300°F (150°C) oven for 10 minutes.

Additional Tips:

  • If you don’t have an active sourdough starter, feed your starter the night before using it in the recipe.
  • For a sweeter variation, add a tablespoon of sugar in addition to honey.
  • Ensure the milk is warm but not hot to avoid killing the yeast in the starter.
