These garlic butter rolls are crunchy on the outside and doughy on the inside. They are the perfect pairing to any meal, and you won’t be able to stop at just one!
Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is finally here! Is anyone else as exhausted from their week as I am?
For some reason I have had far more work to do for my MBA courses lately. I’ve also been working a lot on the recipes I post to this site. There’s just so much to do! And that’s not to mention preparing for my trip coming up.
Trip? What trip you ask?
In about three weeks I will be going to spend six weeks with my dear boyfriend in Italy! I can’t wait but I have so much to do before I leave, it is overwhelming! Thankfully I’ve been able to tackle some of the bigger things, but there is still more. Even for my blog I need to plan posts for the first week I am there and majorly suffering from jet-lag. It’ll be a busy last three weeks but I cannot wait to go!
The last time I’ve seen him was in early October. Here’s a pic of us grape stomping at a vineyard located on Mt. Vesuvius!
So, until then, I have to share this Garlic Butter Rolls recipe with you. This recipe initially started out as an Olive Garden breadsticks copy cat recipe, but then evolved into something so much better. I know, how could you beat Olive Garden? Well these rolls do.
The outside of the roll is crunchy and crisp while the inside remains soft, warm and doughy. Then the buttery and garlicy spread will make you want like 6 of these things! They are seriously that good. I’ve already had three requests to make them again since the day I tested this recipe out!
And one last note on them, a few weeks ago I posted a recipe for Monkey Bread which used 24 Rhodes dinner rolls. Since the bag comes with 36 rolls, I had all of these extra rolls just sitting around in my freezer. To be efficient, I used the remaining dough to make these rolls. See I’m even saving money on my blog!
As a reminder, here are what the rolls look like. I bought mine from the Wegmans freezer aisle.
Oh, and here’s that monkey bread I made earlier!
Now onto that recipe. It’s so simple it really should hardly be considered one!
Prep time 20 minutes, Makes 8 Rolls
- 8 Rhodes dinner rolls, thawed
- 2 tbs butter, melted
- Garlic salt, to taste
- Dried parsley to garnish
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Place dough balls at least one inch apart on a baking sheet.
- Place balls in oven for 15 to 16 minutes until outside is golden and top is beginning to crisp.
- Remove rolls from oven and immediately brush generously with butter.
- Sprinkle desired amount of garlic salt onto rolls (I just used a sprinkle but you could always add more if you like). Then lightly sprinkle with dried parsley to garnish.
- Serve immediately.
