It’s great to have bread with your meal – and to have it on-hand for leftovers sandwiches – but it’s hardly the main event. And The Kitchn has some easy tips for making perfectly OK store-bought dinner rolls taste great:

  1. Serve them warm. You can put them in the oven, wrapped in foil, or microwave them under a damp towel.
  2. Brush on melted butter. This works best with oven-warming – just do it before the buns go into the oven.
  3. Top with fresh herbs. Finely chopped rosemary, sage, thyme or oregano make this an excellent upgrade. (The butter you just brushed on will help them stick.)
  4. Sprinkle with flaky salt. Do this right before serving (and go with unsalted butter for trick two) and you’ll get a bonus texture and flavour pop.

Now just remember to let the butter you serve with your rolls has come to room temperature, too.
