Parmesan cheese

salt and pepper

How to make these dinner rolls

Herbed Garlic Butter. Start by melting the butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan on medium-low heat. Add the garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. *The butter should not be really hot, you just want it melted.

Frozen Rolls. In a 13×9 baking dish arrange the frozen dinner rolls, making sure to leave about 2 inch space in between each one. 

Liberally brush each roll with the garlicky butter.

Let Rise. Cover with saran wrap and let them rise until double, which takes about 4-5 hours!

Cheese. Once they have fully risen, sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese.

Bake. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until they are nice and golden brown and fluffy inside!


Herbs. If you have a favorite herb go ahead and use it. This would be fabulous if you do a mix of dried herbs, such as,  thyme, rosemary, and sage.

Cheese. The parmesan cheese is optional but you can definitely substitute with any other cheese. Cheddar, or mozzarella would be great subs.

How to make ahead

These rolls can be prepared the same way. Instead of letting them rise on the counter for 4-5 hours, you can cover and refrigerate for 10-12 hours. Once they are double in size, then they are ready to be baked.
