Whether you prefer soft, steamy yeast rolls, crusty French rolls, flaky buttermilk biscuits, or buttery crescent rolls, a bounteous bread basket is a Thanksgiving essential. You can bake any of these rolls or biscuits a few weeks in advance and keep them in the freezer, tightly wrapped, until the day before Thanksgiving. Thaw them at room temperature and warm them in the oven right before dinner.
Butter and eggs make these yeast rolls tender and rich. This recipe makes 30 rolls, enough for a hungry crowd and, if you're lucky, leftovers for turkey sandwiches later.
