Ready-When-You-Want-Them Freshly Baked Yeast Rolls

Andy Anderson !


I love fresh-baked rolls, but I am not a fan of the ones in the pressurized tube. The problem is, it takes a bit of time to make good yeast rolls.

The solution: Take time to make a batch, freeze them, and pull them out as needed.

Fresh rolls… yummy.

So, you ready, let’s get into the kitchen.

6Chef’s Note: You might have to add a bit of additional flour during the kneading process.

8Place in the freezer until completely frozen, about 2 hours.
9Place the frozen balls of dough into a Ziploc bag and return to the freezer until needed.

12One hour.
13Two hours.
14Three hours.
15Place a rack in the bottom position, and preheat the oven to 350f (175c).
