What is Sourdough Discard?

Sourdough discard, the portion of your starter that’s removed before feeding, is often seen as a byproduct of the sourdough process. However, it’s a versatile ingredient that can add depth and flavor to many recipes. Utilizing the discard in these rolls not only minimizes waste but also imparts a unique tanginess that complements the savory garlic butter beautifully.



226g warm water

1 Tbsp sugar

1 egg

100 sourdough discard

400g all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

3 Tbsp butter, softened

Garlic Butter

1/3 cup butter

1 tbsp garlic


fresh parsley


  1. In your kitchen aid bowl, add water, yeast, and sugar. Mix and let sit for about 5 minutes or until it becomes foamy.

  2. Next add your egg, sourdough discard, flour, whole wheat flour, salt, and butter to the yeast mixture.

  3. Place your bowl on you kitchen stand and start mixing on low. Once it forms a ball knead for 5 minutes.

  4. Form dough into a ball and let rest for 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.

  5. Spray a 9x13 inch casserole dish with non stick cooking spray.

  6. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down to release the air. Turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 15 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place in the casserole dish. Cover and let rise for 45-60 minutes.

  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place rolls into oven and cook for 20-25 minutes.

  8. While the rolls are cooking make the garlic butter. In a pot mix together butter, garlic, salt, and parsley. Let cool a little before adding to the rolls once they come out of the oven.

  9. Enjoy!
