These rolls were good! I, too, was looking for a way to use up cucumbers that didn't involve a salad. I had regular sour cream and a regular package of chives and they worked just fine. They were very tasty but didn't rise to a normal "fluffy" roll texture. We ended up eating them with the Potato-Mushroom Chowder (26739) and my dh is still raving about this meal. We found that you had to eat them quickly because they went hard within 2 - 3 days so seal tightly. Thanks for a wonderfully different recipe!

I have an a huge harvest of cucumbers this year so this is perfect for me. We all love them. I used bread machine yeast and as soon as I added the wet to the dry ingredients, I put it all in the bread machine on dough cycle. These rolls are a great conversation starter, too as no one has ever heard of cucumber rolls!
