These Herbed Wheat Cloverleaf Rolls are perfectly light and fluffy while only taking 45 minutes to make from start to finish! A light, savory herb flavor gives these dinner rolls a unique flavor perfect for pairing with soups, chicken, and, of course, Thanksgiving dinner!
This recipe is made in partnership with Red Star Yeast. As always, all opinions are my own.
Tomorrow is already November 1st! Which means it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving! I know there are some of you who already have your entire menu planned out, but for those of you who are just starting to think about what to make for Thanksgiving, I have an easy recipe for you.
It just isn’t a Thanksgiving meal without bread at our house, preferably homemade bread. Since we like homemade bread so much, we usually end up making a different recipe every year. This year is no different. We’re going to be making herbed wheat cloverleaf rolls.
Because the shaping takes a bit of extra time and the extra handling of the dough caused the dough to need a little longer rest time, these cloverleaf rolls ended up being 45 minute dinner rolls instead of the 30 minutes that I was aiming for. But they’re still a lot faster than most yeast rolls!
The perfect rise is achieved by using my favorite Red Star Platinum Yeast. I frequently talk about how Red Star’s yeast helps achieve the rise I need for my breads, and these rolls are no different.
Since the goal of these rolls (along with the goal of being light, fluffy, and delicious!) was to make them in as short of amount of time as possible, two packages of yeast are used instead of just one like most recipes call for.
All you have to do is mix the dough together, form it into balls, let it rest for 15 minutes, and then bake for 12-15 minutes. Easy! I like to brush a bit of melted butter on right after you pull the rolls from the oven to give them a nice sheen, but you can skip that step if you’re in a hurry.
The result is a savory dinner roll that is light, fluffy and completely irresistible! Then all you have to do is try not to eat them all while you’re making the rest of your menu!
