Sourdough Slider Rolls

Sourdough Slider Rolls

These sourdough rolls are perfectly sized slider rolls but can easily be used as a dinner roll; they taste fantastic with a knob of butter dipped in your favorite soup or used to soak up the last morsels of a delicious curry. A bit of decadence with the addition of a sprinkling of tasty cheese over the top just prior to baking finishes these rolls of nicely and goes well with the tang of fresh sourdough bread. Unsurprisingly, these do not last long in our household.

Another awesome feature of this recipe is it is very easy to make especially if you have a stand mixer but you certainly do not need one to successfully make this recipe, just make sure the ingredients are well combined.
