Just Like Lambert's "throwed" Rolls - Copycat

There is a fantastic restaurant in Sikeston, MO where they throw the most delicious rolls at you before, during and after your meal. This is a copy cat recipe of those exact rolls. If you get the chance, visit the restaurant. If not, try these rolls anyway. They are so very good! (The Lambert's restaurant is in Sikeston, MO.) They have subsequently opened one in Ozark, MO and Foley, AL) Show more

Most Helpful Review

I was nervous when I used a lot more flour than the recipe called for but when my Mom (whose bread is repeatedly asked for at dinners) asked me "these were store bought, right?" I knew I'd done good. She went on to say "are you kidding me, yeast breads don't usually rise this much in the cold weather" My little trick: When letting bread rise during the winter, I heat my oven to 200 and then turn it off, letting the covered bread rest in the warmed oven. This method has never failed me. YUM See all activity
