People can't believe it when I tell them that these rolls are made with butternut squash. They taste best fresh out of the oven. You can use any type of hard squash, such as butternut, acorn squash or pumpkin.
My kids love these rolls. I usually prepare the dough in my bread machine rather than by hand. To do this, the recipe must be resized to fit your bread machine. For my medium-sized machine, I resize the recipe to make 7.3 servings (though, I then actually make 12 rolls out of the dough. The original recipe makes rolls that are too big for my liking.) The pureed squash is added along with the other liquids at the bottom of the bread pan. Remember to use bread machine yeast ("instant" yeast) instead of active dry yeast. The recipe also seems to work very well with other vegetables. I have tried butternut squash, carrot, and beetroot (which makes great "Red Nose Day" rolls!) - 12 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
After many failed attempts at using whole wheat to make dinner rolls, I was looking for a way to prepare rolls that were light and had fiber, and these are it! They're as light as regular dinner rolls, more tasty, moist and perfect. I've been recommending this recipe to all of my baking friends. However, be forewarned that this makes 12 HUGE dinner rolls. Cut the recipe in half unless you're having a dinner party. - 09 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
