Pull Apart Rolls/Bread
I still can’t believe Easter is this Sunday and that it is April Fools Day. So in the spirit of both holidays, make sure you take green grapes and wrap them with the Cadbury Creme Egg wrappers!! Thank you Facebook for that one.
I’ve been making these rolls since I was a teenager. In fact, this is another Mrs. Teresa recipe! I originally made these rolls for an Italian-themed meal but they are also perfect alongside a casserole or Easter lunch! This recipe doubles/triples beautifully if you are expecting a lot of folks.
Shay’s Way required minimal modifications. The rolls recommended for this recipe are corn-syrup free. Generic store brand dinner rolls oftentimes contain corn-syrup. The brand we use, Sister Schuberts (Parker-House Style Yeast Rolls) is found in the frozen section of most grocery stores. For me, I couldn’t find any pre-made yeast rolls that were gluten-free so I opted for a homemade bread mix.
Pull Apart Rolls (Shay’s Way)
- 2 packages frozen yeast rolls, defrosted
- 2 tsp. to 1 tbsp. Nature’s Seasoning Blend
- 2 tsp. to 1 tbsp dried oregano
- 2 tsp. to 1 tbsp dried basil
- 2 tsp. to 1 tbsp dried parsley
- ¼ cup melted butter
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Combine dried seasonings in a small bowl. If you are using the Sister Schubert rolls, leave the rolls instead the aluminum container as they can be baked in their original pan. Brush each pan of rolls with some of the melted butter, combined seasonings, and Parmesan cheese. Bake according to the package directions until the rolls are a light golden brown. If you buy rolls that need to be separated or pre-made dough, they may need to cook longer. You can put the rolls in a small dish and add the butter/seasonings. If the rolls need to cook longer then I would recommend covering the rolls. These rolls would be tasty with a little melted better, pesto, or even some ranch dressing. Because we dip everything in ranch!
Pull Apart Bread (Shan’s Plan)
- 1 box of gluten-free bread mix
- 1 tsp. Nature’s Seasoning Blend
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- 1 tsp. dried basil
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- 1 tbsp melted butter/olive oil/vegan butter
- ¼ cup nutritional yeast
Prepare your bread according to the package directions (I used Bob’s Red Mill and substituted applesauce for oil). I will say that this bread did not take 90 minutes to bake so be sure to monitor your bread during the baking process. When the bread started to brown, I pulled the bread out of the oven, brushed on some olive oil, and added the seasonings/nutritional yeast. The bread re-entered the oven, covered. I wasn’t initially sure how the seasonings would fare being in the oven for a long time with the bread (I had this fear of burning) so that’s why I held off until the bread was almost done. Serve your bread warm with your meal or dip it in pesto!
**Note: the quantity of seasonings are mere estimates. You can sprinkle on as much seasoning as you would like.
These rolls are so stinking easy and it’s a fun way to spruce up average dinner rolls. I hope you enjoy!!
