EASY GARLIC PARMESAN ROLLS

These rolls are everything I want in a homemade dinner roll. Soft, pillowy, buttery, garlic-y, and the best part- the cheesy bits that get golden and crispy on the tops of these rolls when they bake. Because I use frozen dinner rolls the recipe is short and easy- just the way I like it!

HOW TO USE FROZEN DINNER ROLLS

Part of what makes these Easy Garlic Parmesan Rolls so easy is that you start with frozen rolls. Rhodes Rolls are what I use as they are what I can get at my local grocer. Feel free to use your favorite brand. All you need to do is season the frozen dough balls and then let them rise before baking. Did I mention how easy this recipe is? šŸ™‚

BAKING ROLLS AT HIGH ALTITUDE

Baking rolls at high altitude is a love/hate for me. I’ve had plenty of roll success but trust me, I’ve had more roll fails than I’d care to admit. Just another reason why using frozen rolls is so helpful. The only tip I can offer here is that your rolls will rise more quickly at higher altitudes so keep an eye on them and don’t let them over rise!

MY LOVE FOR CARBS IS REAL

Truth: I may or may not have eaten 3 rolls, standing at the counter, because I was too impatient to let them cool. (And, too lazy to sit down). I then may or may not have licked my fingers instead of using a napkin.

Did I feel guilty?

Not for a single second.

HOW TO MAKE EASY GARLIC PARMESAN ROLLS

No need to thaw the rolls. Simply melt the butter and toss the rolls with the melted butter, grated parmesan cheese, and garlic salt. Let the rolls rise in a warm spot and then bake them off.

That. Is. It.

These are perfect for holiday entertaining as they are the least fussy recipe and you can forget about them until just before baking!

Easy Garlic Parmesan Rolls


  • Yield: 20 rolls 1x

Description

Easy Garlic Parmesan Rolls made with frozen rolls that are a perfect high altitude shortcut!


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
  • 20 rise and bake frozen rolls (like Rhodes)

Instructions

  1. Place the melted butter, garlic salt, and parmesan cheese in a large bowl.
  2. Add the frozen dough balls to the melted butter mixture and quickly toss the rolls to evenly coat the dough in the butter and cheese.
  3. Place the rolls in a 9Ɨ13ā€³ pan and allow them to rise until doubled. Bake rolls according to package directions until the rolls are evenly golden on top.
  4. Remove from oven and slightly cool and easy to pull apart. Serve warm.

Notes

Breads rise quicker at altitude. Keep a close eye on them and start checking them 30 minutes or so before the rising time recommended on the package.
