Thanksgiving rolls in Seattle?

LemonyRoux Nov 13, 2012 02:33 PM

Due to an injury to my left hand which prevents me from making my traditional Thanksgiving rolls, I'm seeking to purchase some ready-made. I prefer the softer variety for this meal. Any suggestions?

    I like the rosemary rolls from Macrina. You can order them in advance from the Sunset Hill Greenmarket in Ballard if that's convenient.

      I always think of Franz Butterflake rolls as the traditional holiday roll, if I'm not baking my own.

        The butterflake rolls at Top grocery are pretty good, with more butter than many other brands.

          I like Macrina's potato rolls. I'd call them soft, but not squishy. I LOVE Ezell's rolls and think they are the perfect type of roll for T-day dinner, but I'm not sure about obtaining large quantities for the holiday.

            Grand Central Bakery has several kinds of rolls you can order ahead for T-day - parkerhouse, potato, and ones with a more shiny harder crust. Also pies, etc. Several locations.

              Thank you everyone for your thoughtful suggestions. I ended up making Rhodes dinner rolls - the frozen kind you let raise then bake. Much to my chagrin my family preferred these to my homemade ones. Well, that's a couple hours saved next Thanksgiving . . .
