Are there any good frozen dinner rolls?

    I think Rhodes Texas rolls are decent. They are actually dough rolls that you thaw, let rise and bake fresh. Takes about 1-1/2 hrs. for quick thaw method.

      Not sure where you are if I missed that but here in Calif I've bought Bridgeford.

      I have yet to find any

      I take that back. A little place near me has has there own frozen rolls and they are ok in a pinch. I always forget about them.

            Alexia Ciabatta rolls with rosemary and olive oil are quite good.

                So, I went with the Rhodes rolls. They were good for frozen but definitely not like homemade. They were quite airy which was a different texture than I'm used to with rolls that I prefer to be more dense. I'm not sure I'd go back for more. Dinner rolls are my favorite part of the meal and I usually seem to consume double my weight in them at holiday meals, but with these I didn't necessarily feel the need to go back for many more. They are good in a pinch but a quick homemade batch is probably worth the minimal extra effort.

                  No. Not unless you made them and froze them!

                    If you don't have time to wait for the frozen dough to thaw and rise, Alexia makes partially prebaked artisan french bread rolls that are very, very good. Just pop them in the oven for 10 minutes and they're piping hot and crusty. Love em.

                      It's funny you mention Alexia. I love whole grain bread and instead of the french bread rolls grabbed the whole grain variety for the bread assortment tonight and was not the biggest fan but perhaps I will try the french bread next time. I like many of their other products.
