Our Best Rolls, Breads & Biscuits
Pepperoni Pizza Pull
This warm and cheesy pull-apart bread takes just a few minutes to make. Keep the ingredients on hand, and you'll always have a quick accompaniment for a soup supper with family and friends.
This family recipe for buttery, tender rolls comes from Kenda Friend of Indianapolis. "I'm convinced my husband married me for access to these rolls," says Kathy, who enjoys entering family recipes in cooking contests.
Sweet Potato Biscuits
Orange zest, nutmeg and smoked paprika add layers of flavor to these tender biscuits.
Melted cheese oozes out of these tender, flaky scones flecked with chives and bacon bits. Cheryl Christiansen of McPherson won best in quick breads with this scone at the Kansas State Fair.
Whole Wheat Pretzel Rolls
Soft pretzels' chewy, brown exterior comes from being boiled in an alkaline solution—the 1/4 cup baking soda in the water isn't a typo!
War Eagle Mill Buttermilk Biscuits
"My recipes are like my children. I'd hate to single one out as a favorite," says Zoe Caywood, who worked for many years as a miller at War Eagle Mill just east of Rogers, Arkansas. These biscuits are from one of Zoe's cookbooks. The recipe blends wheat and all-purpose flours for a fuller flavor than in traditional biscuits.
Old World Cheese Bread
Sweet Potato Rolls
Small bits of sweet potato fleck these moist dinner rolls from Sandra Schifferle of Lansing, Kansas. She puts Kansas wheat to good use in this recipe. For a quick prep, microwave your sweet potato, then cool and mash the veggie for the rolls.
Toasted French Bread Slices
For a quick and easy side, drizzle toasted French bread slices with minced garlic and fresh herbs cooked in olive oil.
Spinach Pizza Bread
Frozen bread loaf dough speeds prep time on this savory bread. An Italian bread popular in The Hill area of St. Louis inspired the recipe. Serve the spirals with a dipper of marinara sauce.
Our Test Kitchen blended sweet cooked onions with bacon and Parmesan cheese in this easy bread. For a twist, try on six-inch Italian bread shells (Boboli) instead of the refrigerated biscuits.
Sage Potato Rolls
For a pretty presentation, lightly dip the top of each dough ball into flour or brush with egg white. Top each with a sage leaf, brush with egg white, and place on prepared baking sheets.
Corn bread gets a makeover in this recipe including either whole kernels of fresh summer corn or canned corn. Spice it up with some cumin or chili powder.
Whipped Fresh Herb Butter
Homemade butter is a great conversation starter; your friends won’t believe you made it from scratch! This fresh, herby version from Urban Roots Farm in Springfield, Missouri, is perfect for melting over sweet corn or spreading on bread.
North Woods Rye Bread
This hearty raisin-rye bread is based on an old Swedish recipe. Try serving it warm, topped with honey or butter.
Herbed Country Twist Bread
You can add a different herb to each rope of this braided bread, or combine all the herbs and add them to the whole batch of dough.
Mama Carolla's Bruschetta
All our favorite Italian flavors -- garlic, tomato, basil and cheese -- meet in this crunchy side. The recipe is from Mama Carolla's Old Italian Restaurant in Indianapolis.
The recipe for this traditional German bread, flavored with dill seed, comes from a Kenosha, Wisconsin, reader.
Cornmeal adds crunch, and basil adds flavor to these biscuits from our Test Kitchen. They make a tasty accompaniment to any soup.
Blend rye flour, all-purpose flour, rolled oats, bran cereal and molasses for golden, tasty rolls. The recipe comes from a northwest Minnesota reader who earned a reputation at the Pennington County Fair for blue-ribbon food.
