No holiday meal would be complete without light, buttery dinner rolls. But before you reach for a tube of Pillsbury crescent rolls or drop a pretty penny on mass-produced rolls from the grocery store, consider this simple recipe for dinner rolls. It requires no yeast and no kneading, but the rolls still manage to be fluffy and delicious.

The recipe for these Momma’s Easy No Yeast Dinner Rolls calls for only five ingredients, and they are most likely things you already have in your pantry and fridge. Requiring just 15 minutes to bake, these dinner rolls are a one-bowl delight that make both prep and clean-up a breeze.


Feast and Farm offers an equally simple dinner rolls recipe, except this recipe calls for just four ingredients (that are also likely be items you already have on hand). Rachel Ballard of Feast and Farm suggests delicious ways to make your rolls even more delightful, such as by adding shredded mozzarella and jalapenos, or Italian seasoning and cheddar.

Now, if you are looking for a dinner roll recipe that is a bit more decadent, look no further than this recipe for flaky, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth dinner rolls from Modern Honey. The recipe does use yeast and requires kneading, however, Melissa Stadler at Modern Honey offers some creative ways to cut down on this work.


First, she advises that you use a stand mixer and allow the mixer to do the kneading for you. Yes, a stand mixer can actually knead for you (though you won’t get that great arm workout from hand-kneading). Second, she suggests allowing your bread dough to rise in a warm oven, as this will cut the rising time in half (as opposed to letting the dough rise on the counter).

And there you have it. Homemade dinner rolls that will impress your family and friends without making you lose your cool on Thanksgiving Day.
