Make Thanksgiving Morning Less Hectic with Overnight Honey-Wheat Rolls from Taste of Home

Taste of Home

Being in charge of the Thanksgiving meal is a lot of work.  Planning the menu, doing the grocery shopping and the preparation of everything can lead to stress, especially for a first timer!  This Taste of Home recipe will help with the stress level by taking care of some of the prep work the night before, freeing up your Thanksgiving morning for other things!


  • •1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • •1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • •2 egg whites
  • •1/3 cup honey
  • •1/4 cup canola oil
  • •1 teaspoon salt
  • •1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • •2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • •Melted butter, optional



  • •In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add the yeast mixture, honey, oil, salt, whole wheat flour and remaining water. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • •Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide in half. Shape each portion into nine balls. To form knots, roll each ball into a 10-in. rope; tie into a knot. Tuck ends under.
  • •Place rolls 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 50 minutes.
  • •Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter if desired. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
