On a cold, rainy day, the aroma of bacon, cheese and bread filled the whole house as the boys bounded in, hungry from school and work! They were not disappointed - another delectable addiction...I mean addition...to add to our family's Rhodes repertoire! Bacon Cheese Nibbles Here's what you'll need -
Oops! Forgot one thing in the picture...butter! The recipe calls for: 20 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold (or 15 Rhodes Texas Rolls) 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted 6 pieces bacon, fried and crumbled 2 cups grated cheese I had a big bag of Rhodes rolls, which I was told are actually Texas rolls, and since I was making them for the boys party, I thawed 30 rolls which made up two batches of the Nibbles. That is a few less than the recipe called for, but since Texas rolls are bigger, I thought it would work okay with just 15 per batch and it did.
Spray your baking pan with non-stick spray. Place rolls on the pan, then cover with sprayed plastic wrap. My trick to do that is to set the plastic wrap on the frozen rolls, spray on top, then flip it over, placing the sprayed side down onto the rolls. It was a cold and rainy day, and my kitchen is freezing until I start to bake, so I did my little semi-quicker method of thawing - turn the oven onto broil "HI" for 90 seconds, and then turn it off; place your rolls in the slightly warmed, but OFF oven. This isn't the "speed thaw" on the Rhodes packaging, but it helps in a cold kitchen. Before the rolls were completely thawed, I cooked the bacon, drained it on a paper towel and then crumbled it into smaller pieces.
Pour the melted butter into the bottom of a 9" x 13" pan or a 12" deep dish pizza pan, or a pan with sides of comparable size.
Cut up each of the thawed (but still cold) rolls into 3 pieces (or 6 pieces if Texas rolls); roll the pieces in the melted butter and arrange evenly in the pan.
Sprinkle first with bacon...
and then with cheese.Cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Let rise until double in size. Remove the wrap. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.
These were soooooo yummy!
Don't let this plate of Nibbles fool you...they didn't actually make it past the pan to a plate for anything other than a picture! My youngest son, Tom, came up the stairs, after he and his siblings devoured more than half the pan and said, "Mom...I am addicted to those rolls!", now affectionately called "nibbles". These take just a little planning and are easy, easy, easy...a recipe that Tom can take with him to college! Easy and absolutely delicious!?
