Semi Homemade Pull Apart Garlic Bread | I have a confession to make. I am not a baker. I like to cheat way too much to be fierce at baked goods. Any way I an cheat to impress my friends and family I do it! Do I feel guilty? Nah… technically, I do make it in my home… so it is homemade.
I absolutely love frozen dinner yeast rolls. They are super cheap and taste like you spent hours making bread dough. I use them all the time for a bunch of different things. The only drawback is the time it takes for them to rise. The bag says 2 to 4 hours. Sounds like the time schedule that the cable company gives you when doing and install.
I find that these take between 2 and 3 hours. If it is cold outside I like to preheat my oven to 170 degrees and then turn off. I will let it sit while I am putting the Semi Homemade Pull Apart Garlic Bread together. Once I am done with the prep I will put in the oven and let them rise.
I like to serve these with and Italian dinner or even as an appetizer. They are nice because they are bite sized so you can get as much (or as little) as you want. I am not a huge bread eater, however, I do like to have a nibble or three.
Feeling a little sassy? Add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese to the top when you pull it from the oven.
Serves: 6 to 8 People
- 8 Pre-made Dinner Yeast Rolls (find in the frozen food section. Get the ones in a big bag of 36, not the ones in a pan)
- 1 Stick of Butter
- 1 tbs Minced Garlic
- 1 tsp Garlic Salt
- 1 tsp Dried Oregano
- 4 to 6 sprigs of Parsley chopped
- Take out 8 dinner yeast rolls from the freezer. I like to let them defrost for about 10 minutes before I start.
- While the dinner rolls are defrosting add the butter to a medium sized bowl and throw in microwave until melted. (45 - 60 seconds) Add minced garlic, garlic salt, dried oregano and chopped parsley. **You can also just buy the garlic spread in the bakery area of your grocery store if you don't wanna make your own spread. I do recommend adding a little bit of salt and fresh parsley for a pop of color no matter what.
- Coat a 5x9 bread pan with a little bit of butter.
- Cut the dinner rolls into 4 pieces.
- Add ½ the dinner rolls to the butter and garlic mixture. Toss and coat. Add to the bread pan in an even pattern. Repeat.
- Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for about 2½ hours or until doubled in size.
- Preheat oven to 350 and bake for about 30 minutes.
- About halfway through I like to place a piece of foil over the top of the bread to make sure that the top bread pieces don't char.
- Let cool for about 7 minutes. Carefully flip onto a plate. It's upside down!! WTF! Flip back over onto another plate and eat!
