Easy Sourdough Rolls The Southern Lady Cooks

These little sourdough rolls are so easy to make and my family loves them. They are only SIX ingredients! This is a great way to use your sourdough starter. If I am making these for a gathering, I’ll make them small and serve them as mini ham sandwiches for an appetizer. They are also wonderful with jellies,  jams, ham salad, or pimento cheese spread.   You could also make these rolls larger and make around 10 of them instead of 20- 25 small ones.  The larger rolls are great for sliders.  These rolls are fluffy and delicious and great any way you make them!

Easy Sourdough Roll Ingredients Needed:

All-purpose flour

Baking soda

Baking powder

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Grease a 9 inch cake pan or cast iron skillet with cooking oil and pinch off pieces of dough and roll into balls about the size of a walnut. Cover with a dish towel and place in warm spot. (I put on top of stove while it is heating). Let rise for 1 hour.
