Last year I saw this really cute idea for “Thankful Rolls” over at the Idea Room and made these rolls for our Thanksgiving dinner. You can liven up your Thanksgiving table conversation with these creative rolls that have a personalized message inside…kind of like a fortune cookie.

It makes it really interesting when you include your guest’s names in the messages. My friend Wendy was our host last year and her son-in-law happened to get this roll. Thankfully they have a good relationship or it would have been awkward.
Just write down your message on a piece of paper and wrap it in a rectangle of aluminum foil. You could also write it on parchment paper and you wouldn’t have to wrap it. Place it in between two dough balls from your regular dough recipe and then let your dough rise.

You can make either regular sized rolls or mini-rolls like I did here. I used the leftover dough scraps from my Lion House Rolls and baked them in a mini-muffin pan. Bake your rolls as you normally would according to your recipe directions.Then at dinner we had a separate “Thankful Rolls” basket that we passed around and read in the middle of dinner. It’s a fun way to get the conversation going and to remember why you are celebrating Thanksgiving.Thankful Rolls - a fun way to liven up the conversation at the Thanksgiving table. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com
