EASY PARMESAN GARLIC DINNER ROLLS

EASY PARMESAN GARLIC DINNER ROLLS: Butter with a Side of Bread

I found this absolutely fabulous recipe for Garlic Cheese Pull-Apart Bread on Pinterest not too long ago. I made it once… then made it about 3 or 4 more times within the month! We took it to a family dinner where it was devoured and received some pretty rave reviews. It’s a winner- you should try it!
I made some changes so that no one will get a heart attack post-meal consumption. {Translation- the original recipe called for way too much butter!} It’s better this way, trust me. You need to eat less butter during dinner so that you can eat more butter with dessert, right?!
This recipe calls for using a Springform pan, since it’s super easy to get the rolls out and serve them pull-apart style. If you don’t have one, don’t worry- any ole pan will do! I’d use a 9×13 glass dish for either recipe below- the larger quantity one will just yield taller rolls.
Easy Parmesan Garlic Dinner Rolls
Recipe to serve 8-10 people:
You’ll need a 10″ Springform Pan
  • 16 frozen white dinner rolls (like Rhodes brand rolls)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided (Can use fresh and/ or Kraft!)
  • 1 tsp dry parsley flakes
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
Recipe to serve 5-7 people:
You’ll need a 8-9″ Springform Pan
  • 12 frozen white dinner rolls (like Rhodes brand rolls)
  • 3 TBSP butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided (Can use fresh and/or Kraft!)
  • rounded 1/2 tsp dry parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • rounded 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • rounded 1/4 tsp onion powder

Step 1: If you’re using a springform pan, put a piece of foil on the bottom to prevent spillage. Then place the entire pan on a cookie sheet. Add frozen rolls to pan.

Step 2: Set the rolls in a warm place to thaw out for about 45 minutes.

Step 3: Melt butter in a small bowl. Add seasonings. Measure out half the Parmesan cheese. (You really can use Kraft or shredded Parmesan for this recipe. You mix in half the cheese, then put the remaining cheese on top. If you have both, I suggest mixing in with Kraft and topping with shredded. I thought it tasted better that way! Just a warning though- we didn’t care for the Kraft cheese BOTH inside and on top of the rolls.)

  1. Have made this for several years with buttermilk biscuits in a Bundt pan, oh so good. Will try with frozen bread...probably lower in fat and preservatives.
  2. Took these out of the oven about a half hour ago., had to have a warm one - OH MY,! Worth the time to make them. I didn't use frozen bread dough tho. I used my regular dinner roll recipe. I don't think it would make difference tho.
