Recommended bakery for dinner rolls

fldhkybnva Nov 6, 2013 06:48 AM

Does anyone know of a recommended bakery that sells the very-hard to find soft, buttery rolls? I'm looking for a place to order for Thanksgiving

    It's not quite soft like a Martin's Potato Roll, but The Swiss Bakery does a very good softer roll called a snowflake roll. I'm pretty sure they bend time around Thanksgiving to make as many as they do.

      Great Harvest Bread Company has a Southern Style Yest Roll that I think is what you are looking for, that type of roll is really difficult to find in this area. But I think it's what you mean.

        I called and they are only making the following rolls: old fashioned white, challah, stuffing and cranberry orange, perhaps the roll you are referring to is the old fashioned white? If so I put in an order for that along with the challah and stuffing although I might cancel the challah rolls as I hear they can be somewhat dry.

          Hmmm they must have changed the name. I would think it would be old fashioned white, hope they have the same recipe as before.

            We'll see. I called back and they are are offering wheat rolls so I'll be getting a dozen old fashioned white and wheat and a loaf of stuffing bread just out of interest.

          Thanks for the suggestion, but not sure these are the ones I'm looking for. I just had a full taste with dinner and they are super dense and dry not like the light yeast rolls, oh well I'll keep hunting or learn how to make them :)
