Works for me Wednesday

For today's Works for me Wednesday I am sharing something I recently discovered. I have used frozen dough before. I've tried the bread dough and the rolls but a few weeks ago I tried this:


This is Rhodes frozen dough - Texas Rolls. They come 24 to a pack and cost $3 and some cents. As the name suggests, they are bigger than the normal size rolls. When done they are the size of small buns. All you have to do is pop them out of the freezer and let them rise in a pan for 3 to 4 hours, then bake them for about 20 minutes. They smell wonderful and taste like homemade.



Here's the finished product. If you want to see what works for some other people, visit Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer.

Oh my word...those look yummy. I can only imagine how good they are spread with butter while they're warm right out of the oven. Can you tell I'm drooling?!

Yep, still doing my low carb diet. Darn...sure would love one.

Hugs!

Those look yummy. I'll have to just admire yours though because I haven't seen them here ... we don't even have the frozen dough or the pilsbury dough in the little tubes for that matter !! I make dough in my bread maker !! :D

I'll have to get me some of those! Love my bread!!!

Short Stop said...

These look delicious! I love rolls...I like to make them homemade from time to time, but ones right out of the freezer...THAT works for me, too! :)

Hope you have a great day. Can you believe how cold it is?

Perri said...

those look great. I've never actually just made them as rolls, but we use them to make monkey bread and it tastes wonderful.

Pat said...

I think I can smell them...yummmm!
I'm not much of a bread eater, but these would call my name and then when I answered they'd say "use lots of butter"! They look so good!

I just made the bread last week from them. So good!!

Rebekah said...

Again, I am sitting in my little hole at work debating on wether or not I should send my officer to get me a bite to eat. I have fought off the urge so far, with my attempt to lose 10 lbs...

And then you have to post those delicious looking rolls. You always post the best looking/ sounding food

These look delicious!

Laura said...

Those are good - we loved the ones you gave us.

I bought frozen Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits this week since I figured when I buy the tubes, I have to make the whole thing and end up throwing half away because they get stale. With the frozen ones, I can make only 2 or 3 at a time and keep the rest frozen, and WOW! They were delicious!

Where do I get them? I love bread!

Terri said...

Those do look good. I can almost smell them through my computer. Gotta love those carbs!

Cherdecor said...

Oh, I want one for breakfast! They look sooooooo good! Grocery store, here I come!

Nise' said...

I love those rolls! I use them to make Sticky Buns too! The sun is shining this morning and it is NOT snowing!

Sandra said...

I LOVE those Mari, they're so good.

Heart of Wisdom said...

I never heard of them. I will try them.
You have been tagged for the "What’s On Your Refrigerator?" meme. It is a Meme and a contest! I'll be giving away two free books. Read all about it at http://heartofwisdom.com/heartathome

Tammy said...

Those rolls look like the rolls they used to serve in my little country school...those were the best in the world. We always got two and I would trade something on my plate for one more...of course that was back in the days when I could eat and eat and eat and never gain an ounce...where oh where did those days go???

I'll be on the lookout for these for sure!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Playful Professional said...

Any suggestions for remembering to take them out of the freezer the night before? I always want to use these and then never remember to take them out of the freezer; then they're useless!

Dena said...

YUMMY! I want some!

Sarah Markley said...

That looks so yummy! Can I come over for dinner tonight =)?

Jennifer Partin said...

Yum! I like the 'Works for Me Wed'. that she hosts. I need to compile a list for all the great ideas and recommendations that I've seen----especially tried and true ones from people I know.

By the way, do you have tried and true freezer meals? I need some recipe ideas for dinners that freeze well and tastes good later too when cooked.

Renee's Reading Corner said...

These look wonderful! I use Rhoads frozen loaves to make Sandra's sticky buns but I haven't tried their rolls. I'm going to soon! Thanks for the tip!

Thanks for the tip!! My hubby loves rolls and I don't bake them much, so I will try these and make him a HAPPY man:)

Shelly said...

I thought you were baking bread. I think I smelled them outside at my house-LOL.
Lots of YUMMYNESS!

Renee said...

MMMmmmm...I'm a bread girl, and these look delicious!! I actually have never heard of frozen rolls that rise, until Jennifer from Gathering Grace recommended them to me. She brushes garlic butter over the top.

I just may have to go try these!! Yummy!
