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.
