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!
