Friday Recipe: Lambert’s Throwed Rolls from Tammy’s Recipes


Can you believe November is already here?! Oh.My.Goodness.

November 1st hit and immediately I began to think about Thanksgiving, I can't help it.  Partly it's because I want to be prepared.  But the other "partly" is because I'm dreaming about the new dishes and the old favorites that will be present at our Thanksgiving table.  It's very exciting!  However...

...many, many years ago I made the mistake of making homemade rolls for Christmas.  It was a mistake because from that time since I have been charged with providing the rolls for every Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Sometimes I make traditional rolls from the Betty Crocker cookbook.  Sometimes I make my mom's classic Angel Biscuits.  But this year I'm thinking about changing things up and making  "Lambert's Throwed Rolls."

I had seen these rolls popping up all over Pinterest but I didn't think much about it until my friend Amy (and fellow food nut) mentioned them in an Instagram post.  And now I can stop thinking about them!

Amy says “A family favorite when we visit Springfield, MO.  I found the recipe for their rolls and holy cow…they are goooood.  I even threw them at my kids to get the full effect.”

I feel like I’m missing  part of the story.   Are you supposed to chuck them at people?  Because I don't think my dad would appreciate me hurling bread at him, although Jake might find it funny.  Why are they called “Throwed Rolls?”  And who is Lambert? Is that a restaurant?  Or is Lambert the baker who first made them?  I just don’t know, maybe someone can enlighten me.

At any rate, Amy says they are tasty and that’s good enough for me so I think I’m going to give them a shot this year.  Via Pinterest I found a recipe for them over at Tammy’s Recipes.  If you aren't afraid of yeast (I’m not) these should be pretty straight forward.  They look fluffy and buttery and I think they will go beautifully with turkey.  And stuffing.  And gravy.  And… well, you get the picture.

Let me know what you're planning for  Thanksgiving!  Happy weekend, friends!!

    Those look like "buns" for sure!!!! Looks like a Coppertone ad. Haha. I'm going to try these too. I noticed on Tammy's website that Lamberts is a restaurant and throwed part, (my computer wants to auto correct that word) is because they throw them to customers. Haha. You're right Care, we are probably not going to eam each other with rolls at Thanksgiving either!!!!

    Oh my goodness this post made me so happy with good memories! Lambert's has a restaurant in central Alabama and we always go when we drive down for family visits (if you ask me it's like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow). They are like Cracker Barrel (I don't know if Cracker Barrel is country wide) on real-southern-food steroids! They serve what is probably a half gallon of sweet tea to every person per cup. The appetizers (collard greens, fried okra (YUM), mash potatoes, etc) are endless - as soon as you start running low they bring back more. They are most known for their thrown rolls - guys come around with big carts of rolls just out of the oven and if you want one you just raise your hand and they throw one to you from across the dining room. If you ever get a chance be sure you go!
