Honey Wheat Dinner Rolls

A holiday meal isn’t complete without dinner rolls, right? They are always my favorite part of any meal, especially during the holidays.  I really enjoy using leftover turkey and rolls to make sliders the day after for lunch, it’s always such a tasty meal!

These honey wheat dinner rolls are super easy to make, they are no-knead and ligt and fluffy.  I highly suggest putting some butter and honey on them, they are perfect that way! I made these dinner rolls to go with a whole mini Thanksgiving feast complete with turkey and carrots and it was a the perfect way to celebrate the holiday.  The only thing that was missing was a bit of Apple Cider Cranberry Sauce, I would have enjoyed to make that again! It’s been way too long since I have had any cranberry sauce.
