If you're hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, chances are you want to wow your guests with your cooking prowess. There's nothing more fun than going all out once a year in the kitchen, so make it count this time by making everything from scratch! Once you've got the turkey, side dishes and desserts all figured out, try this recipe for delicious dinner rolls, inspired by the Food Network. They're much more impressive than store-bought varieties, even though they're simple to make. You'll be the star of the kitchen when you place these on the table.

Dinner rolls
Makes about 24.
1 ½ cups of milk
1 stick of unsalted butter, cut into pieces - plus more for brushing
½ cup of sugar
1 package of active dry yeast
½ cup of warm water
3 large, lightly beaten eggs
1 ½ teaspoons of salt
6 cups of flour.

Directions: Bring the milk to a simmer on the stove, then remove from heat and mix in the butter and sugar. Let cool. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and let it sit until it gets foamy. Combine the milk mixture with the eggs, yeast, salt and half of the flour. Mix until smooth, then slowly mix in the remaining flour. Knead dough on a floured surface for 5 minutes. Cover in a greased bowl for about an hour, until it's double the size. Pinch the dough into rolls, then place on a lined baking sheet. Cover and let them rise until they're double the size, for about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, then bake for about 20 minutes - until golden brown. Brush on melted butter before serving.
