Dill Dinner Rolls

Dill Dinner Rolls

A few years ago I was at a blogging conference where they served the most incredible Dill Dinner Rolls.  Since then, I have been baking batch after batch of dill roll recipes in search of the “perfect” match.  Last week, I finally gave up on the fancy, intricate, and delicious-sounding recipes (none of which were quite right) and decided to just toss a handful of fresh, chopped dill from our garden into our favorite Rustic Italian Bread recipe.  To my amazement, they were spot on!  Sometimes, the easiest, simplest, most straightforward route really is the best one.

These rolls are versatile, addictive, and perfect for batch-making.  I let them cool completely and then store them in a freezer bag in the freezer until we’re ready to eat them.  Let them thaw on the counter while you prepare the rest of the meal (or defrost them in the microwave for 15 seconds), and it’s as if you pulled them straight from the oven!  Truth be told, this is true for most bread recipes, and my freezer is always stocked with several kinds of buns, rolls, and loaves.  Bread baking being one of my most-favorite tasks in the kitchen, I tend to binge-bake. ☺

Dill Rolls

If you’re a novice bread baker, this is a great recipe for you to try!  If you’re more experienced, this one will be easy-peasy and is sure to become one of your regular makes.  Either way, I’d love to know what you think!  Drop me a comment below.
