These sourdough sandwich rolls are so easy to bake in advance and then freeze for later use. Just pull them out of the freezer on the morning you want to use them and you're ready to go! They're also great because it's grilling season and nothing makes a burger better than putting it on your own homemade bun. The sourdough in these rolls is the perfect combination with any burger flavor you can come up with. Just a little tang and of course you can adjust the strength of the sourdough flavor by how long you let it rise. If you like it light follow the directions as listed below with just two quick rises. If you like it stronger, let it sit in the fridge overnight for the first rise before forming into the rolls.
