There’s a lot to love about Thanksgiving dinner: plump, juicy turkey legs; tart cranberry sauce; crusty stuffing; creamy mashed potatoes; marshmallow-topped sweet potato casserole; and, of course there’s the salty, velvety gravy that gets poured over the top of it all. (If you’re not pouring gravy on top of everything on your Thanksgiving dinner plate, you’re doing it wrong.)
Though no one component is better than the sum of the meal’s parts, the humble dinner roll—especially once it’s been dragged across the plate to gather little bits of all of those delicious parts—might be the most important bite on your holiday spread.
But picking the right roll is tough! Should you go with the classic fluffy dinner roll or something more rustic? Maybe it’s time to shake things up and serve a honey-wheat dinner roll or something made with a potato based dough. The guide below will (hopefully) help make this tough—and crucial—decision a bit easier.
