Cheesy bubble bread seasoned with ranch dressing, two types of cheese, and topped with crispy bacon pieces.

Hi everyone! This is Tina from Mommy’s Kitchen. I’m back again on Rhodes guest posting and ready to share another yummy recipe with you. Well, it's that time of year again..... Football Season! In my house it's all about football for my guys, but for me it's all about the food. I don't know why, but I have never really been much of a football fan. 

Even though I don't get involved in the actual game I do love all the food and fun that surrounds it.  When it comes to football food I always try to keep it simple. I usually choose simple dips and finger foods that transport easily. Let's face it folks they won't be eating in the dining room, so finger foods, dips and easy to carry items are a must. 

 

Cheesy bubble bread seasoned with ranch dressing, two types of cheese, and topped with crispy bacon pieces.

Today I want to share this Cheesy, Bacon, Ranch Bubble Bread with you. This recipe starts with Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls , crisp cooked bacon, a variety of cheeses, and a packet of ranch dressing mix. This bread is cheesy, addicting and crazy good! 

This bubble bread is definitely the perfect football finger food. I know the Super Bowl is coming up, so this would be a great addition to your Super Bowl menu. I hope you’ll give this recipe a try. I promise you won’t be sorry. Let’s get started on the step-by-step.

 

Cheesy bubble bread seasoned with ranch dressing, two types of cheese, and topped with crispy bacon pieces.

The ingredients you will need are 15 – 18 thawed but cold Rhodes Dinner Rolls, 10 slices of bacon, one packet dry ranch dressing mix, sharp cheddar cheese, five Italian cheese blend, and olive oil.

 

Cheesy bubble bread seasoned with ranch dressing, two types of cheese, and topped with crispy bacon pieces.

Start by laying out the frozen dinner rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Thaw until the rolls are soft, but still cold.

While the rolls are thawing, cut the bacon into bite size pieces and cook in large skillet over medium heat. Cook the bacon for 7 - 10 minutes or until the bacon is somewhat cooked, but not crispy. Drain bacon on paper towels.

Cut the thawed rolls into fours and set aside. Grease a 5 x 13 inch loaf pan with olive oil. You can also use a Bundt pan or tube pan. Layer half of the rolls on the bottom of the pan.

Sprinkle half of the ranch dressing over the cut rolls; add half the cheese and half of the bacon. Repeat second layer with the remaining ingredients. 

Spray a piece of plastic wrap with non stick spray and place over the top of the pan. Place pan in a warm place and let rise for one hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove plastic wrap and bake in 350 degree oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown and the bacon is crisp on top.

This Football Dip Bowl is made with a frozen whole wheat dough that is shaped into a football with a place to hold your favorite queso dip! Make laces with cut up string cheese and you have a football themed party food! (Step-by-step photos included.) Hi friends! It's Amber from Dessert Now, Dinner Later! I'm back to share a fun tutorial with you! We all know what certain football event is coming up, ahem the Super Bowl, so it's time to make a show stopping savory dip display. This Football Dip Bowl is made with Rhodes Whole Wheat Bread that is shaped into a football with a place to hold your favorite queso dip! Make laces with cut up string cheese and you have a football themed party food!

This Football Dip Bowl is made with a frozen whole wheat dough that is shaped into a football with a place to hold your favorite queso dip! Make laces with cut up string cheese and you have a football themed party food! (Step-by-step photos included.)

I need to apologize now before we get going with the tutorial. I was struggling to comprehend the steps from this recipe, it may have to do with pregnancy brain. ;) So, some of the steps might have my advice on what I would do next time in them, which might not correspond completely with what is shown in the image below it. I hope it's not too confusing! Let's get started! I used a loaf of Rhodes Whole Wheat Bread, since it's more brown like a football. Let it thaw to room temperature, then cut off a piece to roll out for the bottom. You will also cut two strips off of this piece for the football stripes after it's rolled out. I would do a little more than the 2-inches I cut off in the image below. Closer to 4-inches, but not quite half of the loaf. Step 1: Tutorial on how to make a football shaped loaf of bread to hold dip in the center. So, I ended up using the bigger section of dough to roll out for the bottom (I was clearly confused, haha), and I had to add some of it to the smaller piece of dough for the edges of the football 2 steps down. So imagine the image below just a tad smaller.

Roll the smaller piece of dough into an oval about 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick. Cut off two strips for the ends of the football.

Step 2: Tutorial on how to make a football shaped loaf of bread to hold dip in the center.

Pick up the remaining dough, set it on a silicone lined baking sheet, and shape it into a football.

Step 3: Tutorial on how to make a football shaped loaf of bread to hold dip in the center.

Take the other ball of dough and roll it into a long rope, then cut it in half.

Step 4: Tutorial on how to make a football shaped loaf of bread to hold dip in the center.

Set the two pieces of rope on the edges of the football shape. Pinch the dough together everywhere it touches (the base, the ends, etc).

Step 5: Tutorial on how to make a football shaped loaf of bread to hold dip in the center.

Place the two remaining strips on opposite ends of the football and tuck the excess dough underneath. Brush the football with a beaten egg, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rise 30 to 45 minutes.

Step 6: Tutorial on how to make a football shaped loaf of bread to hold dip in the center.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.

If needed, cut or rip out any dough in the center of the bowl to make room for your favorite queso dip, making sure to leave the bottom intact!

Make the football laces/stitching by cutting a string cheese and laying it on top of the dip.

Voila! You have a super fun football dip bowl! Thanks for stopping by! Happy tailgating!

Football Pizza Pockets

Staci Potter From www.thepotters-place Mon, Jan 12 2015

Are you ready for some football? Here at the Potters Place we LOVE football. The best thing about watching football at home is the food. One of our football foods we enjoy making is pizza pockets.

 Pizza Pockets

Here is what you are going to need. Rhodes Rolls (thawed to room temperature), pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings (anything you would put on your pizza). If you haven't tried pepperoni minis, you should. They are so cute and taste the same as normal sized pepperonis yet they are perfect for things like this. I also used a string cheese for the football laces.

Rhodes Rolls

Take 2 Rhodes rolls per person and let them thaw to room temperature. Now flatten out into an oval shape. pizza dough

Now add your pizza sauce, toppings, and cheese leaving a little room on the edges. This allows you to seal the edges. rhodes rolls pizza

Now, take another roll and roll it out to the same size as the first one, put it on the top of your pizza and seal the edges by pinching them tight. I try to make them into the shape of football and add a little cheese to the top to look like a football. food for the superbowl

Place your pizza pockets on a baking sheet, pizza stone, or pizza pan. Bake at 350 for 13-15 min or until golden brown. At 8 mins I rubbed butter over the top to help brown up the pocket. This added a little buttery flavor to the pocket. Rhodes Rolls pizza pockets

Hearty Breakfast Bake

Dianna From whateverdeedeewants Mon, Jan 05 2015

Today I am sharing with you how to make the Rhodes Hearty Breakfast Bake. This is a great dish for a family breakfast or brunch and is sure to fill you up. I love that you can prepare this dish the night before so it will be all ready to bake in the morning. Anything to make life easier right?


Okay, lets get started. Here are the ingredients you will need.

12 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, baked
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 pounds sirloin, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
2 minced garlic cloves
1 onion, chopped
2 red bell peppers, chopped
8 ounces grated Pepper Jack cheese
8 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
12 large eggs
2 cups half and half
1/2 cup milk

Start by cutting the dinner rolls into 1 inch cubes and place in the bottom of a sprayed 9 x 13 inch baking dish. I like to use my kitchen scissors for this, it makes it super easy.



Next heat the oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper on sirloin cubes and brown for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the garlic, onion, and bell pepper and cook until vegetables are tender.


Spread meat mixture over the bread in the 9 x 13 dish. Sprinkle with both cheeses and Italian seasoning. 


In a bowl beat the eggs, half and half, and milk and pour evenly over the bread and meat mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. I like to make this the night before I plan on serving it so I can wake up in the morning and it's all ready to bake.


Remove from fridge and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 70-80 minutes. Cover with foil after 50 minutes to prevent over browning. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!


When buying your sirloin ask your butcher to cut it in the cubes for you. They should do this free of charge and save you a little bit of time and energy.

New Year’s Party Loaf

Amber From dessertnowdinnerlater Mon, Dec 29 2014

This New Year’s Party Loaf is filled with honey butter, topped with a powdered sugar glaze, and made to sparkle with edible silver and gold pearlized sugar sprinkles.

Hello! It's Amber from Dessert Now, Dinner Later! I'm back again, this time with a New Year's Eve treat! This New Year’s Party Loaf is filled with honey butter, topped with a powdered sugar glaze, and made to sparkle with edible silver and gold pearlized sugar sprinkles. Before we get started with the recipe, here's a couple of fun little facts about ring-shaped foods and their relation to New Year's:

  • Any food that forms a ring is good luck because it represents the never-ending circle of life.
  • Ring-shaped cakes and other baked goods symbolize wholeness and the completion of a full year’s cycle.

All the more reason to make this sparkly New Year's Party Loaf, right? Grab your ingredients: 1 Rhodes White Bread Loaf for the ring. Then you will need 1/2 cup butter softened, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 cup honey, and 1 teaspoon vanilla for the honey butter. You will also need 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons milk for the glaze. Last, but not least, you will need silver and gold pearlized sugar sprinkles from Wilton. You can get them on Amazon or from a party/kitchen store.

This New Year’s Party Loaf is filled with honey butter, topped with a powdered sugar glaze, and made to sparkle with edible silver and gold pearlized sugar sprinkles.

Allow your loaf to thaw and slightly rise at room temperature, enough to work with.

Then roll the loaf into a 20-22-inch rope. Form into a circle, pinch the ends, and place in the bottom of a sprayed bundt pan or on a silicone lined baking sheet. Cover with lightly greased plastic wrap and let rise until double in size.

(Picture below is before rising.)

Remove wrap and bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

If you baked the loaf on a baking sheet instead of a bundt pan, you may need to carve out a hole in the center to make it look more like a ring.

Allow the loaf to cool, and then make cuts lengthwise and widthwise, about 1-inch apart, without cutting through the bottom crust.

Combine softened butter and powdered sugar well. Stir in honey and vanilla. Spread the honey butter between all the cuts. You may not use all the honey butter, and that's okay; save it for later. Wrap loaf in foil and place on baking sheet. Warm in 350°F oven for 15-20 minutes.

This New Year’s Party Loaf is filled with honey butter, topped with a powdered sugar glaze, and made to sparkle with edible silver and gold pearlized sugar sprinkles.

Combine powdered sugar and milk to make glaze and then smear half of the glaze on the warmed bread. Immediately sprinkle with the silver and gold pearlized sugar sprinkles before the glaze dries. Serve with the other half of the glaze in a bowl in the center as an optional dipping sauce.

Mason Jar Cinnamon Rolls

Jasey M From jaseyscrazydaisy Wed, Dec 17 2014

Mason Jar Cinnamon RollsI'm always looking for delicious Christmas gifts for my neighbors, friends, and family. I've made Hot Fudge Sundae Cakes in jars (they even had ice cream cups tied on top) and S'mores Cakes in jars, but I really wanted something besides cake, something different, something fun, deliciously fun. We love cinnamon rolls at my house, (who doesn't?) so I thought I'd give them a try. I'm so glad I did! Everything seems more festive in mason jars and who doesn't love getting treats packaged especially for them (with no sharing expectations)? These Mason Jar Cinnamon Rolls are the perfect gift to hand out this year. Let's get started.

One loaf makes twelve rolls. Follow the directions on the package and thaw your dough. I cover mine with plastic wrap that's been sprayed with cooking spray. Just before rolling out your dough, prepare your filling. Stir together a little cinnamon with some brown sugar and then mix it into 1/2 cup softened butter.

 

Turn out your dough onto a well floured surface. Roll it into a rectangle measuring 12x14 inches. Spread filling over rolled dough. It's easiest to sprinkle it evenly around the surface of the rectangle and then use the back of a spoon or your fingers to finish spreading it around.

Tightly roll dough along the long side of the rectangle.

Pinch seams and cut off sloppy ends.

Use a sharp knife to score your rolls. Make a mark at the half way point, then in thirds on each half, then cut each third into two pieces.  You will end up with twelve pretty even sections.

Now it's time to slice your roll into individual pieces. You can do this with a sharp knife, although your rolls will probably squish together and end up funky shaped and your filling might ooze out or you can use dental floss. I know, it sounds crazy, but it works!!! To do this, use regular (not mint flavored) floss and pull a piece 12-18 inches long. Slide it underneath your dough cross your ends and pull. As the floss closes together, it cuts the dough into perfect slices. 

Next grease 12 clean mason jars with cooking spray. Neatly place one roll into each jar. 

Set in a warm place, cover with a clean dish towel, and let raise until doubled. The rolls will fit almost perfectly width-wise into the jars. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. They should be starting to turn a light golden color. 

While rolls are cooling heat butter with milk in microwave for 30 second intervals until melted. Add powdered sugar until the icing's consistency is thick but still pourable. I like to start with 1 3/4 cups and then increase by 1/4 cup until it is perfect (sometimes 2 1/4, sometimes 2 1/2 cups total. Pour about 2 Tablespoons of icing over each roll. Cool.

When cool, cover with lids, print tags (use following link) and attach with tape and/or ribbon, raffia, twine, or bakers twine. Christmas All Rolled Up In Fun Printable Labels

 

We love to remove the lid and microwave for about 20 seconds before eating them - makes them taste fresh from the oven. They are so incredibly delicious!

Cinnamon Pumpkin Crumble

Amber From dessertnowdinnerlater Mon, Dec 15 2014

Cinnamon Pumpkin Crumble - frozen cinnamon rolls smothered in pumpkin pie mix, spices, and a crispy-crunchy streusel, then baked to perfection and served with a drizzle of cream cheese frosting and caramel!

Hello again! It's Amber from Dessert Now, Dinner Later! I'm back with a must-try recipe! This Cinnamon Pumpkin Crumble is ridiculously delicious and so simple to make! It's a cross between breakfast and dessert, and when you share with friends, you can bet they will be asking for the recipe!

I took this to a church party and several people who got a taste were asking for the recipe! The chunky crumble on top is my favorite part! I love streusel!

Cinnamon Pumpkin Crumble - frozen cinnamon rolls smothered in pumpkin pie mix, spices, and a crispy-crunchy streusel, then baked to perfection and served with a drizzle of cream cheese frosting and caramel!

All you need are 9 Rhodes Anytime! or Traditional Cinnamon Rolls. The Anytime! cinnamon rolls can be used right away. The Traditional cinnamon rolls will need 2 hours at room temperature to thaw and slightly rise before proceeding with the rest of the recipe. You can see in the picture below that I used the Traditional cinnamon rolls.

You will also need pumpkin pie mix (not pumpkin puree), cinnamon, nutmeg, butter, brown sugar, flour, old fashioned oats, chopped pecans, one packet of cream cheese frosting (that comes with the cinnamon rolls), and some caramel ice cream topping.

Arrange frozen rolls in 3 rows of 3 in a sprayed 9 x 13-inch baking pan. It's tempting to use all 12 rolls, but there won't be room, I promise. Just bake the extra 3 rolls in a round cake pan separately.

Combine 2 cups pumpkin pie mix, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Spread evenly over and in between the rolls.

Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes. The cinnamon rolls will puff up in the centers, so you should be able to tell that the bread is baked through where the rings rise up while baking. Drizzle with 1 packet cream cheese frosting and caramel topping while still warm.

I'm not joking when I say this is flipping delicious! This is seriously a decadent breakfast or fancy dessert! Make it for your family today!

Simple Bread Gifts

These Simple Bread Gifts are perfect for neighbors, co-workers, teachers...or just about anyone! Download the free printable (and punny) tags below. 
Let's be honest, who wouldn't want a big loaf of yeasty goodness for the holidays? These printable tags and bread wraps make gifting a breeze (and keep it budget-friendly). Simply bake up your favorite Rhodes Bake-N-Serv bread, attach a tag, and spread the love (and butter).
For this first gift, I baked a loaf of Rhodes White Bread (and made my house smell amazing). I used my larger bread printable and wrapped it around the loaf. You could also wrap it with a pretty kitchen towel and then add the printable wrapper on top of that. This would be such a yummy gift for anyone! I also included a smaller version of the loaf wrappers as well. You can combine 3 thawed Rhodes Dinner Rolls (or two Texas Rolls), and place in a mini loaf pan. Allow to rise for a couple of hours. and then bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Wrap with the mini wrappers I've included below. 

This other gift is a bag of six Rhodes Dinner Rolls, baked and ready to enjoy. Drop this off at a neighbor's house before dinner time and you've just completed their meal. The tag is a bit of a funny between my husband and I. He loves his sports shows and on one of them, a catch phrase of the announcer is: "he must be buttah, because he's on a roll!". This was my take on that little phrase..."We are on a roll...to wish you a Merry Christmas!". Perfect with a bag of rolls, huh? And I love the chalky feel of this tag. Be sure to download it below...it prints four to a page. 

The longer bread wrapper size (above) fits the standard loaves of baked bread. It will need to print on 11x17" paper to get the correct length. If you let the bread rise too much, the fit of this becomes a bit snug. 

Above is the mini loaf wrappers.

And don't forget the chalkboard tags for your rolls.
Hoping you all have a wonderfully delicious holiday season!
