9 Best Breads for Your Thanksgiving Table

The most important step to your best “Bakes-giving”? The bread basket, of course! From warm rolls to blissful browned butter biscuits and everything in between, these nine breads will take center stage at your holiday table!

1. Sage Browned Butter Biscuits

These aren’t your average buttermilk biscuits. This Sage Browned Butter Biscuits recipe is the ultimate savory bake. Using browned butter infused with sage to create flaky, fluffy layers and cold buttermilk for a tangy richness, these biscuits are a perfect side for any meal. Top the golden-brown rounds with flaked sea salt and slather with softened butter for a beautiful, tasty finish.

2. Cranberry-Sage Fantails

Elegant and deliciously buttery, these golden-layered Cranberry-Sage Fantails will elevate any fall feast. Their shape resembles a flower in bloom, with each petal forming a perfect pull-apart bite flecked with tart, rubied cranberries, and the earthy aroma of sage.

3. Sweet Potato Muffins

These soft sweet potato-packed muffins are complemented by a crunchy oat and walnut streusel while the sweet heat of cinnamon and nutmeg add a cozy level of spice.

4. Brioche Loaf

This sweet and simple Brioche loaf gets its gorgeous bubbly top from a simple braid. With braided breads, it’s important that the ends are sealed and not tucked or folded under the loaf; otherwise it may rise and bake slightly misshapen.

5. Parker House Rolls

Legend has it that Parker House rolls were created by accident as a disgruntled baker slammed a tray of rolls in the oven. The jolted rolls emerged with their signature folded appearance, and the guests raved about them. It’s that pocket-like fold that creates a crispy golden exterior with a steaming hot and tender interior.

6. Pull-Apart Milk Bread Wreath

Our savory Pull-Apart Milk Bread Wreath features the most versatile of doughs, Japanese milk bread—a tender enriched dough that receives a moist boost from tangzhong, or Milk Roux. Packed with dill, butter, and garlic powder, the bread dough is mixed, proofed, shaped, and assembled the day before. The day of, only a final proof and short bake remains!

7. Genius (Quick) Croissants

The improved way to croissant! Made with the same ingredients as the traditional but with a less-fussy, beginner-friendly method, these Genius (Quick) Croissants are the gateway baked good to the world of lamination.

8. Dill-Sour Cream-Potato Scones

Falling somewhere between scone and biscuit, these Dill-Sour Cream-Potato Scones boast an irresistibly fluffy texture thanks to the addition of mashed potatoes. Sour cream lends a subtle tang and richness, and fresh dill brightens the dough with a sweet, anise-like flavor. These scones are everything you love about mashed potatoes but in quick bread form.

9. Cranberry-Orange Crescent Rolls

Buttery and rich, these Cranberry-Orange Crescent Rolls are studded with dried sweetened cranberries, orange zest, and a touch of vanilla and baked to golden perfection. Whether you serve them alongside something sweet or savory, this recipe makes a batch big enough to share all the holiday cheer.
