I was looking for an easy yet tasty sourdough dinner roll, and happened upon this recipe. My family wants them all the time now! They are tender and simply delicious!

These rolls had a very good flavor, but I was not crazy about the texture. They were a little to heavy for my taste. When I buttered them, they became very doughy. Will not make again.

I loved these rolls! I used a little extra flour, and they were still light and flavorful. Will definately use again.

Wonderful dinner roll. Moist and soft. I will be making this again and again.

I am new to Sourdough Starter, this is the first time I had my starter work so I wanted to get going with something easy, and this recipe was all that. Thanks to the reviewer who mentioned bringing the starter to room temp first. I made only 8 rolls, covered them with oiled saran wrap, stuck in the laundry room out of drafts, and let them sit for 45 minutes. Then I baked them in a lightly oiled cast iron skillet! Look at my purty photo! We tore into these babies like wild hounds. My friend who was here at the time ate three of them loaded with cold butter and preserves, apologizing that she simply couldn't stop. Thanks Debbie!

Easy to make with starter, but didn't like the texture. Seemed more like a biscuit than a dinner roll.

Excellent, tender and light. But I did bake them longer than the recipe indicated -- just till they got brown.
