Monte Cristo Sandwich Roll Ups

Hello, it's Jasey from Jasey's Crazy Daisy here again to share a fabulous recipe for Monte Cristo Roll Ups. I had never heard of the Monte Cristo Sandwich until my husband and I ate at Bennigans restaurant when we visited Bozeman, Montana (I don't think it's even there anymore). He loved  going to Bennigans, it was an Irish pub (I'm not sure it was the food that excited him as much as the Guiness). Anyways, I remember finding it (the sandwich) a bit odd at first, turkey, ham, cheese, and... raspberry???? But the the more I thought about it the more intrigued I was and the picture on the menu hooked me line and sinker. One bite and I was a totally goner!

Their monte cristo sandwiches were fried and crazy delicious and I often think about that sandwich and how amazing it was (admit it, you daydream about sandwiches too) and decided to create my own Monte Cristo Stromboli. I was looking for a sandwich with all the Monte Cristo elements, but that could serve my crew all at once. I don't like to fry food very often and I wanted a quick and easy recipe to prepare but didn't want to sacrifice on flavor. This is where Rhodes comes in.

With just a little planning ahead to remember to set the dough out to thaw, Rhodes Traditional White Bread makes it possible to create amazing recipes that taste all the way homemade and are easy to make. Sometimes I'm all about making things from scratch, but there are some corners that are meant to be cut and using Rhodes in place of homemade bread dough is one of them. They've totally got you covered when it comes making things with bread dough. You can skip messing around with yeast (yikes) and kneading and cut right to the fun part, making amazing eats and treats. Are you ready to get started?

To make these little gems you'll want to spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set one loaf of Rhodes frozen bread out to thaw. Spray a piece of plastic wrap with cooking spray and lightly cover the loaf while it thaws.

Monte Cristo Roll Ups starts with Rhodes bread



Once the dough is nice and soft, set it on a well floured table top and roll it into a rectangle (roughly 12x15 inches). It doesn't have to be perfect.

Next, spread a little raspberry jelly over the dough stopping about an inch away from the edge so that you will be able to seal everything nicely.

Monte Cristo Roll Ups, add a little jelly



Top the jelly with a few slices of cheese, I used provolone, but Swiss or even American would work well if you'd prefer.

Top the cheese with some slices of ham and maybe even some turkey too. Yummmm!

Roll her up.

Fold over your ends and press all your edges together to seal everything in.

Monte Cristo Roll Ups, flip and tuck those ends



Place back on your cookie sheet, seams down.

And bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until bread has turned golden brown. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar.

Drizzle with a delicious raspberry glaze. Slice and enjoy. Easy, right?!

Monte Cristo Roll Ups

In a nutshell, all you have to do is follow a few basic steps and you'll have a delicious Monte Cristo Stomboli that's sure to impress. 

Monte Cristo Roll Ups

1 loaf Rhodes frozen bread dough 2/3 cup raspberry jelly, divided (I used seedless) about 6 slices of provolone cheese 6-8 slices of ham 6-8 slices of turkey powdered sugar for sprinkling

Place dough on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Spray plastic wrap with cooking spray and loosely cover dough. Leave dough to thaw, about 5 hours or as directed on package. On a table top spread with flour, roll softened dough into a 12x15 inch rectangle. It doesn't have to be perfect. Spread dough with 1/3 cup raspberry jelly stopping about an inch before the edges. Layer cheese, turkey, ham slices over the jelly. Roll dough, lengthwise, into one loaf. Fold ends under and press all edges to seal. Place, with seams down, back onto baking sheet and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Meanwhile, during the last few minutes of baking, place 1/3 cup jelly and 2 Tablespoons of water in a microwave safe bowl and microwave using 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the mixture has melted into a smooth glaze. It will thicken a bit as it cools. You can either drizzle this over you Monte Cristo Roll Ups or use as a dipping sauce.  Slice Stromboli and enjoy. How to make Monte Cristo Roll Ups


Grilled Cashew Chicken Wraps

Nellie From ButterWithaSideofBread Mon, Jul 21 2014

It's the middle of July and it's hot!  In the summertime, I am all about making recipes that don't require any cooking!  This recipe from Rhodes is perfect for a summer lunch or even a light dinner.  No baking required, only takes a few minutes to make and these wraps are amazing!  As part of this recipe, you grill the Rhodes rolls to use as wraps which is something I had never even thought of doing before but it's brilliant and the rolls are so good this way!  You can use an outdoor grill or an indoor one (I used my George Foreman)!


6 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
3-4 cups shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4-1/2 cup cashews
3 tablespoons sliced green onions
1/2 cup mandarin oranges, divided
1/4 cup finely chopped red cabbage
salt & pepper to taste


Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Roll each dinner roll into an 8 inch circle. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for about 20 minutes. 

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, sesame oil and mustard. Fold in the cashews, green onions, half of the oranges and the cabbage and mix well. Salt and pepper to taste. 

Remove wrap from flattened rolls and cook on a grill heated to medium heat and brushed with olive oil for about 1 minute each side. Remove from grill and cool slightly. 

Divide chicken mixture evenly between the wraps and garnish with remaining oranges.


10 Great Ways to Use Rhodes on the Grill

admin Fri, Jul 18 2014

It's sizzlin' summertime and we'd much rather keep all that heat outside, right? One great way to do that while still feeding the family is to use the BBQ. It's not just for burgers anymore! Come check out how versatile Rhodes dough is on the grill!

10 Great Ways to Use Rhodes on the Grill!


1. Grilled Rolls

The most basic way to use Rhodes on the grill is to grill your rolls! They cook up quickly and are nice and soft. Add them and a salad to your steak or chicken and you've got a complete meal!

2. Grilled Chicken Quesadillas

These start out similar to the grilled rolls, except roll them out a little flatter, like a tortilla. Make a couple, fill them with delicious stuff, and wait for the oohs and aahs! We've also got another version for you to try: Grilled Hawaiian Quesadillas. Mmmm, think pineapple!

3. Grilled Veggie Lovers Pizza

Oh yes, grilled pizzas are all the rage, and Rhodes makes getting them to the table so much easier. Rhodes dough = pizza dough! Plus, the topping possibilities are endless, right? In fact, here's another idea: Grilled Chicken and Spinach Pizza.

4. Grilled Chicken Pesto Flatbreads

So these are just basically a grilled roll with all kinds of good stuff on top! These ones feature, pesto, capers, ricotta cheese and arugula for a bit of flatbread sophistication! Guaranteed to impress your guests.

5. Grilled Pizza Breadsticks

Ok you've just got to admit, these are pretty creative right? And what family wouldn't be dipping and digging right in? In fact, let the kids make their own and choose what goes inside. A little marinara sauce on the side, and you've just made their day!

6. Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Flatbreads, sandwiches, wraps ... whatever you call them, anything wrapped up in soft and warm bread is amazing! These wraps feature Red Hot Wing Sauce for all you heat lovers. Make 'em as spicy as you want!

7. Grilled Caprese Flatbread Sandwich

The caprese flavor combination of tomato, mozzarella and basil is on a taste tier of it's own. Our original version of this recipe calls for using our Mini Baguettes (which are so convenient) but the combo is also great on this open face sandwich. Also try this version with BBQ Pork.

8. Grilled Mozzarella Rolls

This is another recipe that's so easy to pull together. You just get some of our Warm-n-Serv French Crusty Rolls out of the freezer, top them with olive oil, fresh mozzarella and basil and stick them on the grill. What could be easier?

9. Grilled Supreme Pizza Kabobs

Here's another one the kids are going to love putting together. They are so fun to make and eat! Use frozen meatballs and all your favorite toppings and weave them around a dinner roll. Totally doable!

10. Sliders

So technically this isn't really using Rhodes dough on the grill, but our Warm-n-Serv Soft Dinner Rolls just make the most perfect little slider buns, we had to include them! Here are a few of our favorites:

Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Chicken Salad Sliders

Pepper Popper Sliders


We hope you've enjoyed our grilling recipe round-up and that it has inspired you to get creative with Rhodes on the grill! Upload a picture to our Facebook page and we'll reward you handsomely with a coupon for FREE dough! Let's get grillin'!

Coconut Lime Pull Apart Rolls

Amber From dessertnowdinnerlater Wed, Jul 16 2014

Having a sweet craving? Try these amazing Coconut Lime Rolls!

Hello again! It's Amber, from Dessert Now, Dinner Later! I'm back with another fun creation with Rhodes rolls! It's summer, and there is nothing I love more than citrus desserts, so today I am sharing the recipe for these coconut lime pull apart rolls! Coconut lime is one of my favorite combos! I've made Frozen Coconut Limeade, Coconut Key Lime Bars, Macaroons, and Popsicles, to name a few. I'm just a little obsessed. ;)

Coconut Lime Rolls! Coconut and Lime together! What a great summer treat!

This recipe was a no brainer. It's tangy, sweet, and simple. I mean, how can any Rhodes recipe not be simple? Rhodes rolls make everything easier! Start with 12 Rhodes rolls, thawed, in a greased 13x9-inch pan, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes, 2 limes, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, and 3 Tbsp butter (not pictured).

Rhodes Coconut Lime Pull Apart Rolls

Cut each roll in half with scissors. Place the cut side up; this helps the coconut lime sugar mixture stick to the rolls better.

Rhodes Coconut Lime Pull Apart Rolls

Place sugar, sweetened coconut flakes, and the zest of 2 limes in a food processor. Pulse until combined.

Rhodes Coconut Lime Pull Apart Rolls

Melt 3 Tbsp of butter; pour it over the top of the cut rolls, then sprinkle the coconut lime sugar on top.

Peanut Butter Jelly Bellies

Kristi From ishouldbemoppingthefloor Wed, Jul 09 2014
My kids LOVE anything with PB&J. These Peanut Butter Jelly Bellies are the perfect breakfast {or anytime} treats that capture the classic flavor combination.
And they're only THREE ingredients!

Peanut Butter Jellie Bellies are delicious for kids of all ages! So easy to make with Rhodes Dough.
Are these not the most fun? The classic sandwich...reinvented. In one of my Rhodes Bake N Serv cookbooks, there was a fun recipe that I made with my younger son: "Jam Bellies". They were delicious {and super simple}. He asked if he could dip his in some melted peanut butter to make it taste like a sandwich. I immediately started the wheels turning with this recipe: Peanut Butter & Jelly Bellies! From the brain of a seven year old...

You must try these Homemade (with Rhodes Dough) Peanut Butter Jellie Bellies!
They were yummy both hot out of the oven as well as at room temperature. The peanut butter drizzle was the perfect amount of peanut butter for these. 

Homemade Jellie Bellies are so easy with Rhodes Dough!

- 12 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, thawed and risen {until doubled in size}
- 1/2 cup grape or strawberry jelly
- {optional} 2 tablespoons butter, melted -OR- cooking spray
- 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

Peanut Butter Jellie Bellies

Place your rolls on a cookie sheet or into a casserole dish {I've now made them both ways and prefer the casserole}. Using a well-rounded spoon {if you're worried it may "stick", you can either spray it with cooking spray or dip it into melted butter}, make an indention into each roll. Be careful not to press all the way through. Add a tablespoon of jelly to each roll.

Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes. 

Ooey gooey Peanut Butter JEllie Bellies! Try them with Rhodes Dough!

Microwave your peanut butter for about 30 seconds. Add it into a zip-top bag and snip the corner. Liberally drizzle the peanut butter onto the warm rolls {you can squeeze as much or little as you like}. This was a great part of the recipe for the kids to help with.

Makes 12 "bellies". Recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.

Delicious Peanut Buttler Jellie Bellies, Make a batch for lunch!
So delicious! These were such a fun hit over here. 
My kids are asking for them all the time now! 

Need a luch or after school snack!  These Peanut Butter JEllie Bellies are perfect!
Peanut butter and jelly on a bed of yeasty goodness...
it doesn't get any better than that!

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Rolls

Hi, I'm Rachel from Yellow Tennessee. I am not a baker. That doesn't stop me from trying and every so often I manage to pull something off.

You can find Rhodes dinner rolls or bread in not only white bread but also whole wheat, and even cracked wheat. Rhodes Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast! So Easy and so Good! I decided to go with breakfast. What I love most about these is I can make up a huge batch and freeze them. They are prefect to throw in the oven for those busy mornings when we still want a good breakfast. You will need one pound of sausage, 8 eggs, 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, and of course 12 of the Rhodes Dinner Rolls.Rhodes Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Brown your sausage, drain the grease, and set aside. Crack eggs into a bowl or measuring cup and beat until well blended.Rhodes Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Scramble your eggs and just before they are finished add your shredded cheese. Rhodes Breakfast Take one of your Rhodes Dinner Rolls and flatten into about a 6 inch circle. Layer sausage and your egg and cheese mixture. Then fold the roll over pinching the seams to keep all your goodies inside.RHodes Susage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Place seam side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Rhodes Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast! So Easy with Rhodes Rolls. You can freeze any extras before baking for up to 3 months. Make sure to wrap well to prevent freezer burn. Or you may be like us and gobble them all up leaving no leftovers.

Very Berry Oatmeal Pizza

Toni Patton From juststopscreaming Wed, Jul 02 2014

Very Berry Oatmeal Pizza, you have everything in your pantry!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it almost sets the tone for how our day is going to go. I would like my days to be full of goodness, and with the Very Berry Oatmeal Pizza using Rhodes Dinner Rolls it can be just that. I am very into baking but I have never tried my hand at a breakfast/dessert pizza. Until now, I never knew what I was missing. Today, we made this breakfast pizza and it was pure heaven in my mouth when I took the first bite. The best part about this pizza, aside from how yummy it is, is how easy it is too make!

Oatmeal Breakfast Pizza Ingredients

For this recipe you'll need the following ingredients

For the crust:

  • 9 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls or 6 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, thawed to room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup quick oats, not instant

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk

You'll start off by letting your rolls thaw to room temperature, then you will form them into a ball and roll it out to a 12 inch circle


Very Berry Oatmeal Pizza is so easy with Rhodes Rolls!

Once you have the dough rolled out, be sure to cover it with plastic while you work on the fruit mixture and streusel topping. For the fruit mixture you will combine your sugar and starch, mix well and then add in your berries and gently toss, to coat, set aside. Next you will make your streusel topping by mixing the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Then you will cut in your butter until the mixture is crumbly and add in the oats.

Verry Berry Pizza with Rhodes Rolls, its so easy!

Finally you will put your dough onto a pizza pan and spread berries evenly along the top. Top with Streusel topping, and bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes, until dough and topping are golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Try Rhodes Verry Berry Pizza with this delicious crumble on top!

While pizza is cooling mix your milk, almond flavoring (though I substituted vanilla) and powdered sugar to make glaze. Once pizza is cool drizzle the glaze and enjoy the heck out of it, because I can assure you I did!

Verry Berry Pizza!  great for breakfast or dessert! easy!

This is not only good for breakfast but it would make a perfect dessert!

Delicious Rhodes Verry Berry Pizza!  You have to try this recipe!

Caramel Pecan Knots

Colleen Shibley From www.shibleysmiles Tue, Jul 01 2014

Yummy Caramel Pecan Knots are so simple with Rhodes Dinner Rolls. I've never enjoyed cooking but I've always enjoyed baking. Last weekend Honey and I made a special surprise for her dad. When we had to choose a recipe to make from our amazing Rhodes Bake N Serv recipe book we picked the delicious Caramel Pecan Knots pictured above. I have never made anything like this so I was interested to see how they would turn out. So let's get started first thing you need to know for any recipe is the ingredients!

Caramel Pecan Knots Ingredients

Make these Caramel Pecan Knots today using Rhodes Dinner Rolls! While you are gathering your ingredients make sure to preheat your oven to 350° F. Once your ingredients are together and your work space is clean you can begin making this yummy recipe. Honey did most of the work, she loves to bake.

Step One

Roll each roll into a 10-inch rope and tie in a knot. Set aside and cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Caramel Pecan Knots! MAde with Rhodes Rolls

Step Two

Spread pecans over the bottom of a sprayed 10-inch round baking pan (we used a pie dish).Caramel Pecan Knots

Step Three

Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over pecans. Caramel Pecan Knots

Step Four

Carefully pour cream over sugar and pecans. Caramel Pecan Knots

Step Five

Mix cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl. Then remove wrap from rolls and dip each one into the cinnamon and sugar mixture. place in the round baking pan, putting one in the center and the rest around the outside. Caramel Pecan Knots

Final Steps

Cover with the sprayed plastic wrap again and let rise until double. Remove wrap and bake at 350° F for 30-35 minutes. My house smelled so good while these were baking everyone ended up coming out of their rooms to ask what I was making. When they were done I let my husband be the taste tester as he loves his sweets. When he was done he said maybe I should throw them away. I asked, "Why?" He said so I don't eat any more! I gave them a try myself and they just melted in my mouth. They were so good I know I will be making them again. Not one knot went to waste. Even after a few days I simply popped them in the microwave to soften them up and they were delicious!

DIY Homemade Frozen Pizza

DIY Homemade Pizza.  Great to have on hand for a quick dinner.

Hi again! This is Tina from Mommy's Kitchen, and I am back with a easy recipe to share with y'all. June is Pizza Month on the Rhodes Bake-N-Serve Blog. As a contributing Guest Blogger for Rhodes I'm so excited to be a part of Pizza Month! At our house Friday night is usually pizza night.  

We always make our pizza instead of delivery, because it tastes better and is so much cheaper. I usually make my pizza dough from scratch, but I also love the convenience of using Rhodes Dinner Rolls to make my pizza crust. The dinner rolls are white bread, but they also make a cracked wheat version, and whole wheat bread that works wonderfully for a wheat crust.

Rhodes Pizza night makes it so easy!

Pizza night is always my favorite night to cook dinner because it's a quick meal that I can  just throw together and bake it. Plus I know everyone loves a good pizza, so I usually don't get any complaints. 

 With one bag of Rhodes Dinner Rolls (36 count) you can easily make 4 Homemade Frozen Pizzas. I usually spend one afternoon preparing the frozen pizzas and then wrapping and storing them to use later. 


Rhodes DIY Pizzas, have a few ready ahead of time!

I love having a few of these DIY Frozen Pizzas on hand in my freezer. They especially come in handy when you don't want to cook, or you need to get dinner on table rather quickly. These pizzas are easy to make and taste much better than anything you will find in the freezer section of your grocery store. Plus you get to add all your favorite toppings and not have anything extra that you don't like which you find on store bought pizzas. Let’s get started and make some pizza!!!!!


Rhodes Homemade Pizza


Start by thawing out 9 dinner rolls (per pizza) on a greased baking sheet. I made two pizzas so 18 rolls. Thaw the rolls until room temperature, but still a bit cold.

Rhodes Pizza

Once the rolls are thawed combine 9 rolls into one dough ball on a greased surface and roll out into a circle to your preferred thinness.


Rhodes Pizza Dough

Wrap the dough around a rolling pin and transport to a sheet of parchment paper. I like to sprinkle a little corn meal on before adding the pizza. This ensures that the pizza won't stick to the paper or stone after baking.


Rhodes Pizza Dough

Let the pizza dough rest for 30 minutes (I like to use disposable pizza trays while the dough rests and for storage). After 30 minutes transfer one pizza dough at a time (I leave the parchment paper on the bottom) onto to a heated pizza stone and par-bake in a 450o oven for 5 minutes or until set.


Rhodes Pizza Crust

Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.  By par-baking (partially baking) your pizza crust for about 5 minutes before assembly and freezing you ensure that your crust will be crispy even after freezing.


Rhodes Pizza

Once the crusts have been par baked and cooled, top with pizza sauce (store bought or homemade). 


Homemade Rhodes Pizza

Then add all your favorite pizza toppings. I chose to make a pepperoni pizza for the kids and a supreme pizza for hubby and I. There is no rule of thumb here so just use whatever your favorite pizza toppings are. Click here if you need a few ideas.


Make DIY Homemade Frozen Pizzas with Rhodes!

Once the pizzas are assembled it is time to wrap them for storage. 


Rhodes Freezer Pizza

They key to keeping your pizzas from getting freezer burn is to double wrap them. First wrap the pizza in plastic wrap or waxed paper, and then in aluminum foil. 


Rhodes Freezer Pizza

Add a label with the type of pizza and date it. These DIY Homemade Frozen Pizza's will last for up to 3 months in your freezer when properly wrapped and stored.

Homemade frozen pizzas are great for a quick dinner, for teenagers to bake, as a gift for new neighbor or a new mom that doesn't have time to cook dinner right away.
