My Favorite Fresh-Herb Dinner Rolls


Years ago these were the signature dinner rolls served in the bread basket at a local organic restaurant and farm.



Back then, they offered a few of their most requested recipes online.  I'm so happy I saved this one because I don't think they offer the herb rolls at the restaurant anymore.  A few years ago the restaurant added a bakery which produces mostly more stubstantial artisan-style breads, served at the restaurant and sold at local food stores and Farmers Markets in the area. The finest baked goods come from their ovens, and I have enjoyed everything I've tried...

However these remain my family's absolute, all-time favorite recipe for dinner rolls. The combination of whole wheat, white flour and oat makes them light and fluffy, and a bit more healthful than all white flour rolls. (There is a good dose of olive oil in the recipe, too.)


You can use any fresh herbs that you like. I prefer to use a combination each time I make them; usually rosemary, thyme, chives, and sometimes oregano or sage.





The perfect accompaniment to a hot bowl of soup, or along with a healthy salad ~ I also make them every Thanksgiving. (They freeze and reheat beautifully if you wrap them airtight after baking and cooling.)

If you would like a copy of the recipe you can find it HERE on my recipe blog. I hope you enjoy!

Have a wonderful day, friends. Thanks for stopping by ~ I love your comments !!

  6. I can almost smell them through the screen. Bread gets a bad rap ... all great things in moderation.

    YOur photography is the best. I could just pick these rolls right off the computer screen!

  20. Your rolls look so fluffy. I love homemade rolls and herbs always add such a pleasant flavor to dress things up a bit more. My go to recipe so far as been Tyler Florence's Parker House Rolls http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2010/02/tyler-florences-parker-house-rolls.html, but yours look like they could be another family favorite.
