Blue Ribbon Recipe

Everyone needs a basic dinner roll recipe in their recipe box, and this is a great one to save. It's a super easy yeast roll made with basic pantry ingredients. Once baked, they're nice and fluffy, savory, and have a hint of sweetness. We drizzled honey over the homemade yeast rolls, and it was amazing. Perfect for the holidays or Sunday dinner.
