Yum! What great and healthy dinner rolls. Very easy to make and very herb-y. I ended up adding about an extra 1/2 cup of flour, and I subbed honey for the sugar. My only caution -- don't make them when you are home alone -- they will disappear before anyone believes that you made them... ;-)

Great recipe. I needed a good recipe for rolls for our Easter dinner. I needed 1/4 cup extra flour (used a combo of organic white flour & whole wheat), skipped the thyme & used 3/4 tsp Italian seasoning. I didn't have any wheat gluten. I weighed the rolls out to 2oz each so they would cook evenly, and baked @ 350 for 15 min. Next time I might try 18 min just to get a better crust on top, but they were so soft & fluffy as promised. Thanks for sharing!
