Scott’s Bread Sourdough Rolls

By Scott Hutchins


  • 5 oz. Active (bubbly) starter
  • 13.5 oz. Filtered or bottled water
  • .75 oz. sea salt
  • 20 oz. Bread flour


  1. Mix together until flour is incorporated. Let rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Stretch and fold dough onto itself for 2-3 minutes. Let rest for 15 minutes.
  3. Stretch and fold again for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Place dough into a bag or bowl with lid and place into the fridge overnight.
  5. Next day, divide dough into 12 equal portions, one at a time. Shape each portion of dough into a tight ball. Place on a silicone covered sheet pan.
  6. Cover the rolls on the sheet pan with plastic wrap and let rise for 3 to 4 hours. Once dough has risen to the point where the rolls are touching, it’s time to bake.
  7. Preheat your oven to 420 degrees and then bake the dough for 25-28 minutes.
