Honey Wheat Butterhorns

Honey Wheat Butterhorns | At just $0.11 per roll, honey wheat butterhorns make a delicious breakfast or a perfect accompaniment for dinner. Their slightly sweet flavor is irresistible!

Though my husband enjoys most of the foods I prepare, he rarely stops in his tracks over the flavor of one. A couple of weeks ago this rare reaction occurred after he took a bite out of a breakfast sausage link encased in a honey wheat butterhorn. I have a feeling I’ll be making lots of these over the coming months!

Ingredients

(Adapted from the Whole Wheat Butterhorns recipe from Taste of Home.)

  • 3 cups white whole wheat flour or a half and half mixture of whole wheat and unbleached white flours
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid rise yeast
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup warm water
  • Cooked breakfast sausage links (optional)

Instructions

In a large bowl combine the flour, yeast, sugar, honey, and salt. Heat the water and melt the butter.

Butterhorn ingredients

Add the water and butter to the flour mixture and mix together until a soft dough forms (it will be slightly sticky). Cover loosely and let rest for 10 minutes.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 12-14 inch circle. Cut into 16 wedges.

Roll into crescent shapes (cooked sausage links can be rolled into the middle of the crescents, if desired). Place the butterhorns on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet (or a lightly greased baking sheet). Cover loosely and allow to rise in a warm place for 30-40 minutes or until double in size.

Notes

We eat the butterhorns that contain sausages for breakfast and use the remaining ones as dinner rolls. They have a slightly sweet flavor, so we don’t add additional butter to ours at the table (you can if you really love butter, though, or you can brush them with butter when you first pull them from the oven). Their sweet flavor is a perfect complement to the savory flavor of sausage!

All of the ingredients for these butterhorns are things I typically have on hand, but I calculated the cost of them anyway. The ingredients for the butternhorns cost $1.68, which is just $0.11 per roll! (This price includes everything but the salt.) The rolls that contain a sausage link cost $0.51 per roll. They’re super tasty, relatively healthy, and super affordable!

  1. My mom used to make butterhorns, and your photo reminded me of hers and of my mom who is with Jesus…sweet and delicious memories both : )

    These sound good and really easy! I’m thinking I would have time to get them prepared and while waiting for them to double in size I can be getting in the shower and getting ready for work. Then come out put them in the oven and finish the usual touch ups on appearance. Sound like a plan! Thanks for an other great idea!

  3. Those look great!

  4. I love this! They look so sweet and soft, and I know the honey wheat combo is always great. Thanks for sharing this! Found you through Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways. 🙂

  5. Oh how my mouth is watering just thinking of this luscious rolls. I use to make my own crescent rolls years ago…love your ‘healthier’ version. And wrapping the sausage up in it is brilliant. Thanks ever so much for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck. Please come back soon…and have a wonderful week ahead.
