Gravy Soaker Rolls

Gravy Soaker Rolls

Here’s another one of my Thanksgiving staples: gravy-soaker rolls.   These rolls come out with a crisp exterior and a soft center, and the egg wash makes all the difference for presentation.

There are better rolls for just eating on their own, but these are perfect for soaking up gravy, butter, or mopping up your plate! Bonus: they make great rolls for turkey sliders with Thanksgiving leftovers!  When my mother-in-law mentioned that these rolls reminded her of ones she had when she was younger, I couldn’t not bring them to the annual festivities.

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm milk, 3/4 cups of water, sugar and salt. Make sure the mixture is not hot as that may harm the yeast.
  2. Remove from heat, and gently stir in 2 eggs; then the yeast.
  3. Measure flour into a large bowl, digging out a hole in the center to the bottom. Pour wet mix into the center; cover, and let sit for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the margarine.
  5. When the flour mixture has sat for 30 minutes, pour the melted margarine into the bowl and mix well. Then knead lightly to create a dough, adding more flour little by little if the dough is still sticky. Cover, and let rise for 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, grease a large cookie sheet.
  7. After the dough has risen, shape the dough into 24 rolls, then place them on a baking sheet. Remember to leave space between the rolls as the rolls will rise. Let rise again for 30 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F and beat 1 egg with 1/4 cup of water.
  9. After the rolls have risen, paint the tops of the rolls with the egg wash mixture. Then sprinkle sugar on the top.
  10. Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until done.
