These simple pumpkin dinner rolls are the perfect accompaniment to any winter or fall meal, and are topped with toasted pepitas!
Hello, from Big Sky, Montana! Yes, we did that weird, somewhat insane thing that people sometimes do and went from cold, below-freezing temperatures at home in Michigan… on vacation… to cold, below-freezing temperatures in Montana! I know, I know.
We got settled into our condo on Saturday, and are spending one beautiful week here in the snowy town of Big Sky. Our week will be filled with skiing and dog sledding and hot tubbing – just some of my favorite things!
So today, in honor of our ski trip, I want to share a recipe with you guys that was inspired by one of my all-time favorite ski resorts: Alta!
Alta is a ski resort located just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. We have been several times with my family, and it’s one of our favorites. Especially because we have a tradition of eating lunch in one of the tastiest restaurants on the mountain: Alta’s Rustler Lodge.
This lodge is the definition of sophistication, and there is nothing like being able to kick off your ski boots, warm up by the fire, and have a delicious 5-star white-linen-tablecloth meal in the middle of a ski day workout. And when we visited last time, their bread basket featured a pumpkin dinner roll with toasted pepitas – I was hooked! I absolutely love pumpkin, and so I knew I had to recreate it at home.R
For this recipe, I adapted the classic dinner roll recipe from The Kitchn and converted it into a pumpkin-lover’s delight. The Kitchn’s recipe is the perfect easy recipe for dinner rolls. Even people who don’t bake can still make perfect dinner rolls with their recipe, so I highly recommend it!
I adapted the dinner roll recipe to the Rustler’s flavor combo by adding canned pumpkin to the dough. You could also take it one step further if you want something even more pumpkin-y (for example, in the fall) and add pumpkin pie spice! I topped the rolls with pepitas before placing them in the oven, which gives the seeds a delightfully crunchy texture afterwards.
Now it’s your turn: what would you add to your dinner rolls? Share with me in the comments below!
