Easy Parmesan Rolls

Parmesan rolls. Yes, you heard me right. Rolls topped with parmesan - Yes please! How can you beat a roll dipped in butter and then rolled in parmesan cheese? You can't. While I love to make my own rolls, I often don't have time. So, frozen rolls are my next best option. There are several frozen roll brands available, but I always use Rhodes Bake-N-Serv

Keep in mind, this is a recipe you need to plan out before hand. Since the rolls need to thaw and rise, you need to put them in the fridge or on the counter hours before you plan on eating. Directions are below!

9 Garlic Rolls

Melt 3 tablespoons butter, add 1/2 garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt

Dip each frozen roll into butter mixture. Place in baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap until doubled in size - about 4 hours. Spread the rest of the butter mixture on the top of the rolls and bake at 350 for 11-15 minutes or until golden brown.
