  • 1 pound 12 count frozen dinner rolls, thawed (I used Rhodes brand)
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • A little garlic salt optional
  • Some sesame seeds optional


  • Combine the melted butter, parsley flakes, garlic powder and salt in a bowl.
  • Pour just enough of the melted butter mixture into a 9 inch deep dish pie plate to coat the bottom. Brush a little bit on the sides as well.
  • Dip thawed dough pieces in remaining butter mixture and arrange them dipped side up in the plate. Brush any remaining butter over the top.
  • Cover with an overturned mixing bowl and let rise at room temperature until doubled in bulk -- about 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on how cold the dough is.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
