At my house, we start each holiday meal with rolls and a salad before digging into the main course. Any other day, I can devour a restaurant bread basket with the best of them, but on holidays, I tend to reserve my appetite in anticipation of specialty dishes. When did bread become a pit stop to the turkey and stuffing? After all, quality rolls are an essential component to leftover sandwiches.
This holiday season, give bread a lead role. Spruce up your favorite recipes and add some new methods to the mix for holiday breads that can’t be ignored.
1. Sprinkle with Holiday Herbs
Traditional flavors like rosemary and sage encapsulate the very essence of the holidays. Have you considered using aromatic herbs typically reserved for a roasted turkey in your favorite bread recipe? Try Grandma’s Rosemary Dinner Rolls or Sage & Gruyere Sourdough for a scrumptious twist on a classic recipe that will leave your kitchen smelling divine.
