When special holiday dinners roll around, sometimes you have the time (and energy) to make pillowy homemade dinner rolls, lovingly mixing and rising the dough…and shaping the rolls…and rising again…and baking…and brushing with butter…and serving warm…and impressing everyone! And sometimes…you don’t.

But that’s totally okay! And time/energy constraints don’t mean that you have to forgo freshly baked dinner rolls. Because fortunately for all of us, it’s easy to fake homemade dinner rolls with significantly less effort! Shhhhhhh!!! You don’t have to tell anyone. They’re never going to guess that these babies weren’t made from scratch.

See, you’re going to start with balls of frozen dinner roll dough (like Rhode’s), but you’re going to fancy ’em up. And after you’re done, the resulting Garlic Rosemary Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls are going to look like they came from your grandma’s kitchen.

And now for the lowdown! Each cloverleaf roll requires 1 1/2 frozen dinner rolls. Thaw the frozen rolls and cut them in half. Then take each half, roll it into a little ball, and lightly dust it with flour (which helps maintain a bit of separation between the sections of the cloverleaf so that it’s, you know, like a clover). Place three flour-coated dough balls into the greased cup of a muffin pan, and once there’s a trio in each muffin cup, cover with cooking spray-coated plastic wrap and allow to rise for about 30 minutes. Then carefully brush the risen rolls with garlic butter, and sprinkle with fresh minced rosemary and kosher salt. Bake until golden and TA-DAAAAAA! Soft, flavorful Garlic Rosemary Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls! Betcha can’t eat just four…

I adore the rosemary-garlic combo, but you could certainly use your favorite fresh herbs or whatever you have on hand. You can also opt to add an additional coating of melted butter when the rolls come out of the oven…just be careful to drizzle and blot more than you brush so that all of the rosemary and salt don’t fall off.

{Quick & Easy} Garlic Rosemary Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls

When time is short and homemade isn't possible, frozen bread dough is a quick and easy shortcut ingredient for making lovely Garlic Rosemary Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls, perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, or any holiday meal or special occasion!

Ingredients

  • 18 frozen, unbaked dinner rolls (such as Rhode's)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (more as needed)
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh minced rosemary
  • Kosher salt OR coarse sea salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Thaw frozen dinner rolls at room temperature until soft enough to cut, yet still cold.
  2. Grease a 12-count muffin pan with softened butter or generously spray with nonstick cooking spray. Scatter flour on a plate. Cut each thawed roll in half. Roll each half into a ball and lightly toss in flour, knocking off any excess. Place three dough balls in each greased muffin cup. Cover muffin pan with a piece of plastic wrap that's been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Allow to rise for 30 minutes or until doubled in size (do not let rise too much above the top edge of the muffin pan).
  3. While the rolls are rising, preheat the oven to 350┬░F. Melt the butter and stir in the garlic powder until dissolved. Gently brush the risen rolls with the garlic butter and evenly sprinkle with the fresh minced rosemary and kosher salt. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool in pan for a few minutes before removing to a rack. Serve warm.

Notes

Each cloverleaf dinner roll is made using 1 1/2 frozen rolls, so you may multiply the recipe accordingly.
