Sourdough Dinner Rolls

Our first recipe from It went really well with meatloaf, though not very many of the rolls actually made it to the table! They were pretty easy for homemade bread too… we might just make them again to go with tomorrow’s turkey!


1 cup sourdough starter
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar OR 2 tablespoons brown sugar OR sucanat
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 -4 cups flour
(we used half whole wheat, half bread flour)
butter, melted


Lightly oil a 9 x 13 inch pan or line with parchment paper
Preheat oven to 375
In a large mixing bowl combine starter, water, yeast, salt, sugar and oil
Stir in flour, adding flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough is manageable
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead well
Place dough in a bowl and cover, set in a warm place to double in size
When double, punch dough down and with lightly floured hands, form into rolls
Place on prepared pan and let rise until doubled
Score rolls with an X shape
Bake approximately 20 minutes at 375 F
Last 5 minutes of baking, brush with melted butter and return to oven
Try to let them cool before you scarf them down! Mmmm!
