Soft, tender, buttery and with a garlic and herb punch these Sweet Potato Herb Parker House Rolls are a must for any dinner table!
I’m not even going to waste a moment of time today, we are getting straight to the point and down to business. These rolls, you need to drop everything you are doing right this instant – get to the kitchen and make them now.
You might think I’m joking but I’m serious, just thinking about these dinner rolls again makes me excited that I get to make them again in a few days for Thanksgiving. Everything that you dream about in dinner rolls is rolled up into these Parker House rolls. They are soft, tender, served hot, already glistening with butter, include a touch of sweetness from the sweet potatoes and a tiny herb punch.
I also get that working with yeast can be intimating and scary, especially when you pair it with added holiday meal prep stress but I promise coming from a non-bread baker these are the easiest rolls ever to tackle.
To help eliminate the daunting task that comes with making fresh bread, I take a few steps to make my life a little bit easier. Especially when the dinner to-do list is a mile long.
First, do as much ahead of time as possible. Yup, that’s right these rolls do come to the table piping hot but they can absolutely be baked one even two days ahead of time. A quick refresh with some melted butter in the oven is all it takes to make it seem like they just finished baking moments before hitting the table.
The next is to minimize prep: Toss a few extra sweet potatoes in the oven when you make your pies or casseroles and save them for the dough. Keep it in the refrigerator when you’re ready to roll (pun only slightly intended).
The biggest helper though comes from Gourmet Garden Herbs and Spices. They are a staple in my kitchen year round when I need a little fresh herb pick-me-up but don’t have any on hand but are especially perfect for these rolls. The garlic, parsley and basil Stir-in Tubes easily get mixed into melted butter that flavors the interior of the dough. No need or worry about chopping herbs or making sure they are at maximum freshness. Plus I love that it stays fresh for up to 3 months, unlike expense herbs from the store that wilt if you look at them funny.
So now what are you waiting for? Run to the store, grab your ingredients and get baking! I’m telling you, once you’ve had these rolls you’ll be cooking up every possible excuse to add them to the dinner menu.
