This is an updated post from when I first started my blog a year ago and I wanted to share it with you. These darling rolls will bring you RAVE reviews and they are so delicious!!
Turkey Shaped Dinner Roll Tutorial
To start you need a package of 24 frozen rolls. ( I use wheat rolls for the turkeys.)Take frozen rolls out of package and put on large greased baking pans to thaw (I use 2 pans). When rolls are thawed but still cold preheat oven to 350*
|We start with one single roll.|
|Take remaining smaller piece and roll between hands to make a short rope.|
|Shape into an elongated S and press against front part of first roll to make the head and neck.|
|With scissors cut a beak and make the ‘waddle.’|
|Push a pepper corn in for the eye and a thin slivered almond for the beak.|
|Here is a close up of the head, beak, eye and waddle.|
|With scissors cut back of tail to make feathers.|
Beat an egg well and brush over entire body and tail. (There is NO PHOTO showing this but it very important for the nuts and seeds to stick).
|Take sliced almonds and overlapping press in dough to make feathers. Press pepper corns, cracked mixed pepper corns, finely chopped pecans or walnuts, small seeds like sesame or cracked sunflower seeds into body. Press in firmly.|
I also put on a very light touch of Kosher salt on each roll.
Continue making turkeys. I put 6 turkeys on each pan. This recipe makes 12 LARGE turkeys.
Let rise 20 minutes. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Remove from oven when done and immediately stick two pretzel sticks in bottom pushing way in to make the legs. Let cool for a few minutes. Then using a large spatula place each turkey roll on a cooling rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
|Aren’t these baked turkey rolls just beautiful!. The nuts and seeds are toasted in the oven while the roll is baking And it makes the rolls absolutely delicious! Enjoy!|
