So you've got your frozen turkey, your homemade stuffing recipe, and your guests are bringing dessert — you're off to a great start. But, just remember that it's OK if you don't make everything from scratch. In order to help you out, we've rounded up some of the best store-bought bread rolls for Thanksgiving below. Don't think of it as cheating. Think of it as giving yourself more time to focus on the main dishes.

Having the right bread rolls on the Thanksgiving table is key. Not only are they delicious on their own, but they're the perfect tool for soaking up sauces, gravies, and the like. Growing up, my brother would even use them to make mini turkey and gravy sandwiches right there at the table. The fun of sitting down to eat Thanksgiving dinner is that after working hard all day long, you can enjoy your meal however you'd like.

So let yourself worry about the turkey and the potatoes, but go ahead and get a hand from the grocery store when it comes to making the dinner rolls. The bread is the lowest maintenance part of the food spread so no one will judge you, and if they do, they really don't belong at your Thanksgiving table anyway!
