Freezer dinner rolls are easy to make and when you serve them steaming hot with butter melting into a golden pool…maybe a little wildflower honey… well dinner just got really special. Having brown and serve rolls all ready to go in the freezer is pretty handy — and it makes you look good, too.
About ten minutes before dinner is going to be ready you just pop them in the oven to finish browning and to warm them up. You’ve already cooked them most of the way so you don’t have to thaw them or wait for them to rise. You can also freeze these unbaked, just take them out of the freezer about two hours before you want to serve them.
I don’t know — I have this weird fantasy about being a 1950s kind of mom and serving hot, homemade rolls with the family dinner. Well, that doesn’t happen much around here but when I remember to make these homemade freezer dinner rolls it happens a lot more often. With my schedule and the kids’ schedule and my husband’s schedule dinner time can be crazy. This recipe makes soup or salad into a quick, filling meal.
I also like to have these around so that when someone needs a meal or a blessing I can take over some hot rolls without it being totally stressful. You can double or triple the freezer dinner roll recipe pretty easily and you can adjust the size of the rolls to be exactly what you want. Big giant rolls for family dinners or smaller, dainty rolls for special occasions — it’s up to you.
This recipe is going to make your life easier and your reputation as a cook a whole lot more impressive.
