Bread is such a key food group to a great Thanksgiving Day meal. You definitely need a soft roll to make mini sandwiches with the turkey or ham you’re serving, but it’s fun to get creative and serve another delicious type of bread/roll too.

  • Traditional soft bread – In addition to the brioche buns and my mom’s dinner rolls, you could make my whole wheat honey recipe into rolls instead of bread.
  • Chewy bread – My mom’s French bread is THE most popular bread recipe on the blog. The pretzel rolls are one of MY faves, and can easily be warmed up in the microwave.
  • Sweet rolls – You can definitely serve up some sweet rolls (like the two linked below), but they also make a great morning or mid-day snack. Wanna make just ONE pan? Try my Giant Cinnamon Raisin Twist Roll!
  • Something different – There is nothing better than a buttery biscuit or a good sweet cornbread as an addition to your holiday table.

If you like my Mom’s Homemade Cinnamon Rolls recipe, then you will LOVE this one for Sticky Caramel Cinnamon Rolls, aka Caramel Rolls! It’s another Norma Jean recipe, and hers were the best. The dough is super soft, filled with a sweet cinnamon sugar mixture, and then baked on top of a caramel “goo” – as my mom called it. 🙂
