Pumpkin Dinner Rolls

I’m obsessed with Pumpkin Dinner Rolls!  f you follow me on social media you might know I have a thing about baking bread.  This Summer I started to get really into it, especially Sourdough bread and Slow Cooker Bread. I keep my Sourdough Starter in the fridge, bringing it out weekly to feed and bake something delicious with it.  

With so many garden pumpkins on the counter, I made a big batch of fresh pumpkin puree to freeze for later use.  Craving some pumpkin bread, I came up with these soft and fluffy Sourdough Pumpkin Dinner Rolls.

Savory Pumpkin Recipe

These Pumpkin Rolls are so fluffy and moist, they are hands down one of my favorite savory pumpkin recipes.   Some people associate pumpkin with sweet recipes, like homemade pumpkin pie and pumpkin rolls, but did you know pumpkin makes a perfect ingredient for dinner dishes too? I love using pumpkin savory meals, like Pumpkin Chili and Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese too!

With floured hands, form the dough into dinner roll shapes. After letting them for 30 minutes more, bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. During the last few minutes of baking, I like to brush with melted butter to give them a crispy look on top.

Can you freeze pumpkin dinner rolls?

Absolutely! Bake them as usual, and then let cool completely.  Then place them on a cookie sheet and freeze, making sure they don’t touch each other.  Once frozen, put in a freezer bag and put them back in the freezer.  When you want one (or more),  you can throw them in the microwave for a quick defrost!

Enjoy these Sourdough Pumpkin Dinner Rolls everyone!
