Buttermilk-Oat Dinner Rolls

Buttermilk-Oat Rolls

On Sunday night we got the chance to go see Les Mis at a local theater with my husbands company.  Have you see Les Mis, the movie or the musical?  I had not seen the movie before, and didn’t really know anything about the story. The extent of my knowledge was there was a character named Cosette.  One of my best friends in high school was named Cosette.  Her mom had watched the movie and loved it so much while she was pregnant, she named her daughter after one of the characters.  I am glad that I finally know the story, and had the chance to see it live.

Back to Thanksgiving sides.  Yesterday we covered the Thanksgiving Stuffing, today are the dinner rolls.  I might have a slight carb addiction because these are two of my must haves at Thanksgiving.  I am not always particular about the roll, like I am the stuffing, but there has to be dinner rolls involved.  A warm roll with the butter melted into all the nooks and cranies is just perfect for any meal.

Buttermilk-Oat Rolls

Last winter I made Classic Oatmeal Bread, and it was a quick favorite of mine.  So when I saw this recipe for oat dinner rolls, I had to try it.  I am a big fan of hearty oat bread, and these rolls did not disappoint.  Fresh out of the oven they were tender and soft.  These aren’t super light and fluffy like some rolls, they have body to them, which is why I like them.  I put butter on mine, my husband drizzled honey on his.  Either way they were delicious, and sure to make a great side for your Thanksgiving dinner.

  1. We never had stuffing in our house when I was growing up, then I married a man whose mother makes the best stuffing in the world. So, I’ve been practicing. Rolls are also not something that were on the dinner table as a kid, but are something that I’ve added now that I have my own family. Like you, I’m always up for something different as far as they go. Your oatmeal rolls look amazing and just may grace our table!

  2. Hi Erin! My easiest, go-to rolls are by the Pioneer Woman- so easy and people scarf them up!

  3. I have your same carb addiction because I love dinner rolls too. These look wonderful!

  4. I’ve seen the movie and the musical (but just a highschool performance) and enjoyed both. Loving these rolls too!

  5. These rolls look hearty and good, I love oatmeal bread too, great rolls!

  6. Dinner rolls definitely have to make an appearance at Thanksgiving dinner! Love these!

  7. We just watched Les Mis (the movie) this past weekend! I fell asleep for a good portion of it but the parts I did see were good :) Anyway, I love the oats in these rolls – sounds so hearty and perfect for fall.

  8. I have yet to see Les Mis – hubby keeps saying we need to see it next time it comes to San Francisco. Glad you liked it. Speaking of like, these rolls I am loving!!!

  9. I love this idea! The texture seems wonderful. I’d love to try them.

  10. Beautiful rolls Erin-one year I bought rolls for Thanksgiving (trying to same time) and I never heard the end of how horrible they were, so I always make my rolls and like to try different recipes and this one looks like a winner ;)

  11. LOVE Les Mis…and these yummy looking rolls! :)

    I wonder if you can use a little bit of whole wheat in with that flour?
    I love all your recipes. thanks

    • Thank you!!
      I would try maybe 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 white whole wheat flour to start with. I made whole wheat rolls once, by just subbing the entire amount in regular recipe, and they came out a little tough. Still working on a soft and fluffy 100% whole wheat version :)
