How To Dress Up Dinner Rolls
We’ve all been there. 15 people?! That means 15 dinner rolls…. Oh wait! They only come in packs of 90. Maybe the guests will be really hungry?
At many events we go to, the hosts talk about how they bought way to much bread or rolls. It just doesn’t seem to be in high demand. But, you need to supply rolls which leaves you in a catch 22. Buy too many rolls and have too many leftovers? Buy less rolls and risk running out?
Sometimes all it takes to entice guests to take bread or rolls is a little bit of “dressing up.” There are so many combinations, it’s easy and quick.
Buy one roll for each anticipated guest. It’s okay. Please buy a good quality bakery roll.
Slice the rolls. You will also need a dish of olive oil (extra virgin if possible) and a pastry brush.
Mix up your dippers. Crushed fennel seed and sea salt? Rosemary and black pepper? Your choice! Put the herb/salt or spice combination in a plate.
Brush, dip, and serve!
- Fresh chopped parsley and garlic powder
- Sesame seeds and dried onion
- Rosemary and sea salt (Or kosher salt. Call it sea salt. Technically you’re right.)
- Warm honey instead of oil, dip in poppy seeds + dried, crushed lavender
- Crushed coriander and white pepper
- Crushed fennel and sea salt
- Chives and coarse black pepper
- Butter instead of oil, toasted Panko bread crumbs, and Old Bay seasoning
What would your favorite combination be?
