Barbecue Stuffed Buns

Amanda Coers From thecoersfamily Wed, Aug 27 2014

Barbecue Stuffed Buns made with Rhodes Frozen Bread Rolls These delicious, tender buns are filled with smokey barbecued pork and topped with a buttery honey glaze. I love to use up leftover barbecue for this simple, but oh-so-good meal that can easily work as an after school snack for hungry teens. We normally slow-cook a large pork roast with our favorite barbecue sauce and a dash of liquid smoke. After eight hours, simply shred the roast with a fork and allow all the juices to soak into the meat.

Dutch Oven Cinnamon Nut Pull-Aparts // Tried and TastySummer is coming to an end all too quickly for this outdoors loving gal. I recently decided that summer is without a doubt my favorite season. Along with loving the hot weather, I equally love camping. I didn't grow up camping all too much, so I don't know where my love of it came from. All I know is there is no such thing as too many camping adventures. Last year some of ours invited us to go to Bear Lake and we had the best time! It was the first time I dutch oven cooked believe it or not, and guess what? I fell in LOVE with dutch oven cooking!!!! Two of the recipes I made were from Rhodes even.

Dutch Oven Italian Pull Apart Bread

Debi From recipesformyboys Mon, Aug 18 2014

I have wanted to cook in a Dutch Oven for the longest time.  This summer, I decided I would wait no more and bought a Lodge Camp Dutch Oven.  What an amazing way to cook!  And this, Dutch Oven Italian Pull Apart Bread, using Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls, was the perfect recipe to start with!

Fantastic Dutch Oven Italian Bread made easy with Rhodes Rolls. 

 Pepperoncinis, artichokes, pepperoni and black olives topped with an Italian Cheese Blend...



Remove 14 Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls from freezer.  Cut into quarters while partially frozen.   
Dice toppings. By all means, add more if you desire.  You can use prosciutto instead of pepperoni.  Assorted olives would work well, also.  If you don't like marinated artichokes, do not us them.  However, I do encourage you to try them in this recipe.  You will be surprised how well you like them.  
Mix olive oil, melted margarine, juice from pepperoncinis and seasoning when you take the Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls out of the freezer.  
 Toss quartered rolls in olive oil mixture, making certain to coat each piece. 
Add 1 cup Italian Cheese Blend.


   Layer with toppings.  

Let rise until double in size.  Add 1/2 cup of the remaining Italian cheese. 
 Place 8 hot charcoal briquettes under dutch oven and 16 (I had an extra one) on lid to cook at 350 degrees F. 
 Cook 15 minutes.  With appropriate lid lifter, carefully turn lid and dutch oven 1/2 turn in opposite directions.  
 I just love my Lodge Camp Dutch Oven and I am seriously thinking about getting another one in the near future.  A win/win for certain......I could cook more than one of these amazing Dutch Oven Recipes from Rhodes at once!
Looks ready to me!
  Go ahead and add remaining 1/2 cup Italian cheese.  Replace lid for 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

I know you want to eat it right now, don't you? 

 You will definitely want to make multiples of this so you can enjoy it also!  You know how that goes, you feed everyone else first and then, well, it's all gone and you wish you had eaten first. Yes, you definitely want to make more than one!



Dutch Oven Cheesy Garlic Bites

Natalie From thecreativemom Wed, Aug 13 2014

Hey there, it's me, Natalie, from The Creative Mom.

My family loves camping. Cooking in the dutch oven is one of our favorite traditions while we camp... Or let's be honest, anytime we want really fantastic chicken, potatoes, or cobbler. But I never realized how EASY it is to cook really yummy bread in the dutch oven. I hadn't ever even thought of it because I would NEVER want to deal with yeast or waiting for bread to rise. But hello! With Rhodes frozen dough, we can cook amazing bread in the dutch oven without all the fuss!

These cheesy garlic bites were a hit at my house! The kids couldn't wait to reach in and pull off a cheesy piece of heaven. And they were so simple, I will definitely be making them again and again. 


24 Rhodes frozen rolls 1/2 cup (1 cube) butter or margarine 1 tablespoon garlic salt 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning 2 cups Italian cheese (parmesan and mozzarella)


Start by setting your rolls out to thaw. You want them thawed, but don't let them rise.

 Once they are thawed, cut the rolls into fourths. I used my kitchen scissors, and it worked perfectly!

 Melt your butter and mix the garlic salt and Italian seasoning in.

Pour the butter mixture and cheese overtop the rolls, then toss until evenly coated.

 Cover and stark cooking.

For my 12 inch dutch oven, I cooked these for 45-50 minutes at 325 degrees (23 charcoal briquettes on top, and 17 on bottom). Or, you could cook in your oven at 325 for about 25 minutes.

Make sure you check on the rolls (and get a good whiff) every 15 minutes or so. I also like to sprinkle a little extra cheese on top with about 5 minutes left... just to make it look really nice, and a little added cheese never hurt anything!

 You know you're done when the cheesy garlic bites are golden brown on top.

 These little guys are amazing! They are the perfect addition to any traditional dutch oven dinner.

If you don't have a dutch oven, no worries. You can make these in your oven in a regular casserole dish, following the same directions. They won't have the smokey, rustic flavor of the dutch oven, but they will still be delightful!

Twisted Breadsticks

Megan Ivie From amomstake Wed, Aug 06 2014

When I lived in Utah, I frequently visited The Pizza Factory so I could devour their delicious twisted breadsticks.

Following these simple directions, you'll enjoy these tasty twisted breadsticks in a matter of minutes.  

I received compensation in exchange for this post. Regardless, all opinions are my own.

Bacon Cheeseburger Tacos

Diane Roark From recipesforourdailybread Mon, Aug 04 2014

Have you ever thought of using Rhodes Dinner Rolls to make a flour tortilla? It turned out great for these Bacon Cheeseburger Tacos.

I have never thought of using Rhodes dinner rolls to make a flour tortilla until I tried making these Bacon Cheeseburger Tacos from Rhodes. After flattening out the rolls and letting the dough rest for a few minutes, I fried them in a skillet with a little cooking spray. They were amazing and tasted just like a warm, fresh tortilla. The fried tortillas were really easy to make. The bacon cheeseburger filling includes all the delicious ingredients you would find on a cheeseburger including ketchup, mustard, and onion. The cheeseburger filling is then placed on a flour tortilla made from Rhodes dinner rolls and topped with bacon, lettuce, and tomato. This recipe is a unique take on tacos that kids will definitely love!! Bacon Cheeseburger Tacos 1

Rhodes gave me great products to giveaway, plus compensation for this posts. This giveaway and compensation did not affect my opinion of Rhodes Dinner Rolls. Before writing this post, I had written several posts using Rhodes Dinner rolls including Cast-Iron Deep Dish Pizza, Cinnamon Pull Apart Rolls, Herb Yeast Rolls, and Stuffed Parmesan Cheese Rolls which I in no way was compensated by Rhodes.

Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull-Apart Bread

Yvonne From triedandtasty Wed, Jul 30 2014

Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread.   ...mmm  Doesnt the name say it all?Pull-Apart bread is all the rage. I first attempted it a year or so ago for one of my good friends that requested it as a going away treat. I put all of the work in to making the bread from scratch. It was a simple cinnamon/sugar (cinnamon roll type) pull-apart bread. Want to know what happened? I overcooked the dang thing. All the time. All the energy. All the anticipation. In the end it was just a dry loaf of, well, bread I suppose. So sad right? Well, after all this time I decided to attempt it once more. This time I wanted to take the easy route and use Rhodes! Why didn't I think of that before? This was one of those 'recipes' I just kinda made as I went. The result? A crime. IT'S AMAZING!!!! Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread.  Its so easy, I used Rhodes bread. You'll want to gather all of your ingredients. It's so much nicer having everything right at your fingertips ready when you need it. I used one of the loaves of Rhodes bread, but you certainly can use the rolls - you'll just thaw them and then combine them in to one ball (usually 10-12 rolls, depending if you use the regular sized or the Texas rolls). The rest of the ingredients you'll need are: granulated sugar, coconut, chopped pecans, lemons (for the zest and the juice), powdered sugar, and butter, softened.Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread. Once your loaf has thawed (but still cold), you'll roll it in to a 12x16 rectangle. If you've followed my Rhodes posts for a while, you know that rolling the dough out is my least favorite part! But with that said, if you start to roll it out and then let it rest you'll have better success without much frustration of it shrinking on you! Spread evenly with 1/3 c. softened butter.Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread. Sprinkle your dough evenly with granulated sugar and coconut followed by lemon zest. I don't know about you, but I LOVE the smell of fresh lemon zest! It's the perfect addition to this pull-apart bread.Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread. Not only does it smell good, but isn't it so pretty? I love pretty food! Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread. Lastly you'll sprinkle with your chopped pecans. The smaller the chopping, the better. It will work better for your layers if you have small bits rather than whole or partially chopped pecans.Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. Check out the step-by-step photos.  Its really fast if you use Rhodes bread. Cut your dough in to even strips about 2 inches wide. Carefully top one on top of another until they are all stacked. Take your time, the toppings are only loosely on the dough. You'll have to pat them down occasionally to keep it all in place.Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread. You'll then cut your strips in to squares. You can either use a bread or serrated knife or a pizza cutter. I opted for the pizza cutter and it worked really well. I didn't count the number of pieces I ended up with, so I'll say... it was.. a good amount! Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread. Squish each section of squares together in a loaf pan. With only a little bit of budging you should fit all of your pieces perfectly. Don't worry about lining them up exactly, you'll just want to shove them in anywhere there is a space. Try to keep them level and uniform as they rise they will rise more evenly that way. Be sure and round up all of the lemony sugary pecan goodness that you've probably left on the table and throw it on the top of your pieces. Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread. Cover and let rise until almost double (but don't let rise to the top of the pan, that will be too much). I set my loaf pan outside for 10 minutes in the blazing hot heat and it was just the right amount of time. Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread.  YUMMY!  It was a total crowd pleaser! Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. About 20 minutes in my loaf was as golden brown as I wanted it to be, so I covered it with foil for the last 10 minutes. There's nothing worse than having the top brown but the bottom raw. 30 minutes was the perfect baking time for me. Cool in pan for a few minutes, loosen edges and then transfer to cool on baking rack.Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread.    While your loaf is cooling you'll want to get your glaze ready. This is the perfect topping for the pull-apart bread! Mix together your lemon juice, melted butter, and powdered sugar and you've got yourself the perfect lemony topping.Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread.    You'll want to wait until the loaf is almost completely cooled before glazing. Otherwise your glaze will just melt (which a little bit of melting is OK). Drizzle the desired amount on top of the loaf and reserve about 1/4 for individual servings. Best if served right away. Enjoy! Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread. made with Rhodes bread.  I love making puul apart breead,  set it out an eveyone can pull off a slice.

Bacon And Egg Boats

Amber From dessertnowdinnerlater Mon, Jul 28 2014

Rhodes Bacon and Egg Boats are great for Breakfast Boats are great for breakfast or brunch, deliciously savory and easy to make!

Hello, hello! It's Amber again! From Dessert Now, Dinner Later! I'm back with another delicious Rhodes recipe! I am so in love with Rhodes' frozen dough, that I hadn't really given the Warm-N-Serv rolls a chance, but boy oh boy was that a mistake! I could seriously eat crusty bread everyday the whole rest of my life and be happy. And the mini-baguettes used for this recipe are just, delightful! Don't tell anyone, but bread and butter was the reason I gained several pounds (okay like 5+lbs) on my honeymoon cruise 6 1/2 years ago. Luckily, I've gained a little more control when it comes to bread and butter since then.

Monte Cristo Roll Ups

Jasey M From jaseyscrazydaisy Wed, Jul 23 2014

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. 

How to roll dough for Monte Cristo Roll Ups



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.

Monte Cristo Roll Ups, and a little cheese



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

Monte Cristo Roll Ups, and some ham and turkey

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.

Monte Cristo Roll Ups, Flip her over and bake



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

Monte Cristo Roll Ups



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

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!

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
