Can I make and form my rolls a day (or two?) ahead of time, refrigerate and just throw in the oven when the turkey comes out? I'm thinking about the Parker House rolls in the Martha Stewart Baking Book, which I've heard good things about, but I'm accepting any and all suggestions. I am trying to do everything ahead of time, except maybe the mashed potatoes, so that I can relax with my twenty guests. ;-)
I think you could refrigerate them for a day or two, or freeze them for longer. I will probably do that this year as well. Throwing them in the oven when the turkey comes out sounds just about right.
They will rise in the refrigerator, so I would not leave them there longer than overnight. However, you could form and freeze them, then take them out to rise an hour or so before baking, and you should get good results.
