Ingredients

  • 1 package frozen Bridgford White Rolls Dough   or frozen Parkerhouse Style Rolls
  • 1/2 stick melted butter
  • Toppings: grated cheddar cheese grated parmesan cheese, poppy seeds, minced dry onion, sesame seeds, chopped fresh dill, chopped fresh chives, lemon pepper, chopped fresh parsley, paprika, or chopped almonds.

Instructions

  • Spray coconut oil or a non-stick spray in an ovenproof pie dish or pan.
  • Arrange the frozen dough roll pieces about 1" apart in the pan or dish.
  • Let the dough rise for about 3 hours, in a warm place in your kitchen. Or if you want to let it rise slowly overnight, cover with clear wrap and leave in the refrigerator overnight. The dough will double in size in about 2-3 hours on the counter or overnight in the fridge.
  • When you are ready to bake, brush each dough piece with melted butter.
  • Sprinkle toppings on each roll, alternate flavors to make it pretty.
  • Bake per the package, 375 degrees for 15 minutes.

Notes

Are These Dinner Rolls Good To Make Ahead?

You can rise the dough overnight in the fridge, just cover with clear wrap. In the morning, brush with melted butter, and decorate with toppings, and bake. Leftover rolls can be reheated for 10 minutes in a 300-degree oven.
Nutrition information excludes optional toppings.

Can I Reheat Dinner Rolls?

Yes! Leftover rolls can be reheated for 10 minutes in a 300-degree oven.

What are the Best Dinner Rolls to Buy?

I love baking from scratch.... but boy storebought rolls come in handy! Especially when you're making these Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls where the magic happens in the toppings.
I love Bridgford frozen dough because it bakes up so well, as good as homemade! If you can't find Bridgford in your area, try looking for Rhodes Bake-N-Serv dinner rolls. (The Rhodes store locator is here.) Just like Bridgford, they come frozen and need time to rise before baking. (this post is not sponsored by these brands)

Can I Make Party Dinner Rolls with Already Baked Pull Apart Rolls?

I have tried making Party Dinner Rolls under a broiler to quickly melt the cheese and adhere the other toppings, but it's just not the same. The butter doesn't infuse and they burn easily... so skip it and go for frozen unbaked dough!
