Flavored Dinner Rolls - Super Simple and Oh So Good!

I don't think that I have ever met anyone who has said that they don't like bread but I am sure that there are some people out there who don't care for it.  I'm not sure why that would be and honestly, I feel bad for those people because they are certainly missing out!  Really, does it feel like dinner if you don't have some sort of bread on your plate?  It would just seem wrong to me.  It's kind of like the whole potato thing - it isn't a complete dinner without a potatoes!

Here is an easy way to bake fresh rolls for your lunch or dinner that will make your family oh so happy.  It does take a while for them to rise because you are going to put them into your pan frozen and then they have to rise, which takes about two hours but then you just put your dressings on top and throw them in the oven and they are ready to devour!  If you are going to be home this is a great way to throw this side together and forget about it until right before you eat.  Here is what you need to do:

Lightly grease a medium cast iron pan.

Place your 15 frozen bake and serve rolls on the bottom of the pan.

Cover the whole pan with a clean tea or dish towel and let rise in a warm place for at least two hours. It is going to look lovely when I pull this towel off!

This is about 1/2 way through the defrosting process and they are now getting pretty soft.

And this is what they look like when they are just about ready to hop into the oven.

Melt the 4 Tablespoons of butter in a small dish and

gently brush the melted butter over each roll.

Yes, these look like they are slathered in butter because they are.  I'm not ashamed to say that they are totally drenched but you really want to do this.  They are going to get extra hot cooking in this cast iron pan AND because everybody loves super buttery rolls.  Don't deny it.  You know you do!

Then sprinkle with your choice of freshly chopped herbs (Thyme, Rosemary, Garlic).  I didn't have any fresh herbs today so I just chopped fresh garlic super fine and brushed it on half the rolls and then popped them in the oven.

When they were about half done I opened up the oven and sprinkled some cheese on top of half of the rolls so that I would have a couple of different types of rolls.  Try to use fresh herbs because it is just better but if you don't have any, the dried stuff will work.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Oh my, don't these look like they need someone to bite right into them?

You will end up with delicious rolls that are light, fluffy and oh so full of flavor. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Flavored Dinner Rolls - Super Simple!
10-15 Rhode's Frozen Bake and Serve Rolls (or any frozen rolls you have)
4 Tablespoons melted Butter
2 teaspoons FRESH herbs of your choice (Rosemary, Thyme, Garlic, etc.)

Lightly grease a medium cast iron pan and place your 10-15 frozen bake and serve rolls on the bottom of the cast iron pan and cover with a clean dish or tea towel. Place in a warm place to rise for about two to three hours. If it is hot in your house, two hours should be enough.  Remove the towel and gently brush the butter on top of each roll.  Sprinkle with your choice of fresh herbs or seasoning on top of the rolls and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
