Pull Apart Bread
My dear readers, through this blog I aim to bring to you a variety of different recipes and not get stuck on certain things. That’s just not who I am. So today I bring to you these skillet baked rolls buttered and seasoned with Italian seasoning. Because butter is what makes the world go round and round. No, seriously. It does.
But look at that butter, its vibrant color. Don’t you just want to slather it all over your face. I’m telling you, goodbye wrinkles. Who needs Botox? If that wasn’t enough, I threw in some Pecorino Romano cheese.
I cheated a bit here because I used frozen bread rolls. Don’t hate me, I have many recipes here to make your own bread rolls, but this time I cheated. I’m not perfect! You don’t have to be either. That’s what makes these rolls so great. They’re super fast to make and you will still be the heroine (or hero) in the kitchen. The kitchen will smell like freshly baked bread and those herbs, oh those herbs.

Take the frozen rolls and dip them in that yummy butter and lay them nicely in a skillet. Then just because that’s how we roll, take some more Pecorino Romano cheese and sprinkle some over them rolls.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown in a preheated 400 F degree oven.

You can keep them right in the skillet and just wrap the rolls with plastic wrap, then refrigerate. When serving again, you can place the skillet directly in the oven for a few more minutes to heat them through.

These are great to make ahead, especially since we’re using frozen rolls. So prepare them as you would then wrap the skillet tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until next day when ready to bake them and serve. You can even freeze them like that for up to a month.
