12 Days of Rhodes Last Minute Solutions

Last minute solutions with Rhodes Warm-N-Serve Rolls

I know how my last few days before Christmas can be incredibly busy and hectic.  I have found that if I plan ahead a little and have a few key ingredients on hand, life, dinner, or last minute guests are a snap.  Here are three recipes that will put a smile on any old elf’s face.  All three recipes are made with Rhodes Warm-N­-Serv Rolls

 

Last minute solution 1

Grilled Cheese sandwiches are a favorite with my family.  This recipe is not on our website but I wanted to share it with all of you.  We love having these with tomato soup for dinner or on a Sunday afternoon. You will need the following:

1 package of Warm-N-Serv Dinner Rolls

Slices of cheddar cheese

Creole seasoning (***optional, my family loves this on everything)

a

 

 

Allow the dinner rolls to thaw slightly and then remove the rolls from the tin.

a

 

 

Do not separate the rolls.  Slice the whole square of rolls in half.

a

 

 

Place bottm half of rolls back into the tin.  Lay slices of cheddar cheese on the bottom half of the rolls. ***this is where I sprinkle my Creole seasoning.

a

 

 

Place top half of rolls back on top of the cheese.  Place into the oven at 350 degrees and cook for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted completely.

a

 

 

Serve with tomato soup.

a

These grilled cheese sandwiches are a quick easy meal that is filling and nutritious.  I’m sure it will quickly become a family favorite for your family too.

 

 

Last minute solution 2

Warm-N-Serv Lemon Pull-Aparts

With a house full of teenagers and kids it seems we always are having an instant party.  These lemon pull aparts are a great solution for party food.  You will need the following;

1 pan Warm-N-Serv Buttery Dinner Rolls

1 tablespoon butter, melted

¼ c sugar

1 lemon rind grated

Citrus glaze:

½ tablespoon butter, melted

¾ cup powdered sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

a

 

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Allow Buttery Dinner Rolls to thaw slightly.  Remove the rolls from the pan but do not break the rolls apart.  Brush with 1 tablespoon melted butter on the bottom and sides of the “square” of rolls.  Place “square” back into the pan.

a

 

 

Zest the rind of one lemon.  ***tip***  It’s best not to use any of the white rind of the lemon, this part of the rind is a lot more bitter.

a

 

 

Combine zest and ¼ cup of sugar.

a

 

 

Sprinkle the zest and sugar mixture over the rolls.

a

 

 

Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Combine the citrus glaze ingredients; ½ tablespoon melted butter, ¾ cup powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice.  ***I used the juice from the lemon I zested.

a

 

 

Place cooked rolls on a plate right side up and drizzle with citrus glaze.  Enjoy!

a

 

 

Last Minute Solution 3

Toasted Cheese Rolls

Use these as an appetizer, quick snack, or to add something special to a meal.  You will need the following;

4 Rhodes Warm-N-Serv Mini Baguettes, thawed (one package)

Melted butter or Olive Oil

Grated cheese ( I used parmesan and cheddar)

Garlic salt (you can use one with parsley)

Fresh Basil (optional

a

 

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Allow Mini baguettes to thaw (at least until they can be cut).  Slice roll in half lengthwise.

a

 

 

Brush with melted butter.   Sprinkle with garlic salt and top with cheeses. 

Place in preheated oven and cook for 3-5 minutes

a

 

 

You can now top with fresh basil.  This is a great addition, although I didn’t add the fresh basil because it looked really sad in the grocery store.

a

I know this old elf is really happy to have some last minute solutions on hand, and I certainly have a smile on my face.  I will hang up my apron until we bake again!  Have a very Merry (stress-free) Christmas.
