Semi-Homemade Sourdough Dinner Rolls

Donna Graffagnino


I love the taste of Pillsbury French Loaf (I call it Tube Bread) and I make a lot of things with it besides French bread. Whenever I want dinner rolls I just open a tube, cut it into 8 pieces and in almost no time, voila! - Dinner Rolls

How to Make Semi-Homemade Sourdough Dinner Rolls


  1. Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray.
    Unroll the dough from the tube and set into the pan. Cut the dough in half, then each piece in half, giving you 4 pieces. Cut each piece in half again.
  2. This step is optional but it makes the rolls really pretty.

    Gently roll each piece in your hands then fold the two cut sides towards each other to form a round ball.
  3. Pinch the cut sides together very well, as you would when making pizza dough or mozzarella cheese. Put the pinched side on the bottom and repeat this for all 8 pieces.
  4. Evenly space each piece around the pre-sprayed a cake pan or baking dish. If desired, with a sharp knive cut a slit into the top of each roll.
  5. Put them into the oven with the light on and let them rest/rise for 30 minutes or so. If you're in a hurry just skip this step.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 15-17 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Yummm!
  7. Options: sprinkle each roll with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or work garlic powder or herbs into the dough before forming into rolls. Brush top with egg whites if desired.
