There's no denying it, Thanksgiving can be a hectic holiday. If you're longing for a new homemade recipe to add to your menu, then we've got the perfect solution. This year, leave those canned rolls on the store shelves. Yeast Rolls are the ideal authentic side dish that you can prepare intermittently as you're doing the important prep work for the more-intricate dishes like the turkey. The appeal of this dish goes beyond its minimal degree of attentiveness; while you're letting the Yeast Rolls do their thing, the nostalgic and delightful aroma of yeast will waft through your kitchen, making everyone feel at home at your Thanksgiving feast.
