- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1 cup warm whole milk (110° to 115°)
- 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup sugar

- Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 2 dozen.
Reviews for Butternut Squash Rolls
"OH MY!! These are addicting. I used the bread machine to do the work and then I put the rolls in the iron skillet. This is a keeper! I used almond milk and 1/2 butter and 1/2 coconut oil. Got another batch going right now."
"What a fun way to use butternut squash! Nobody eve argues about hot rolls at dinner time so It was a great success! I just zapped the fresh butternut squash from my garden in the microwave for a few minutes and was able to cook and prepare the squash easily. The rolls fit perfectly into two deep dish pie pans."
"loved this recipe i did make some changes for health. i split the butter i used 1 1/2 tbsp butter and 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil and also used coconut milk instead of reg. milk and turned out great. still had a great butter flavor and my in laws who will not try it if you tell them it is healthier could not tell a diff."
"I used a whole grain wheat flour instead of white & they turned out so good. My kids couldn't get enough of them!!! Will definitely make again!"
"I've made this several times, I usually substitute half whole wheat flour for half of the white flour. The Grandkids love these!"
"We love these rolls! They are very easy and seriously delicious. I use whole wheat flour in place of some of the all-purpose."
