Simply set these aside to rise and brush with a delicious honey butter before baking for 15 minutes and you have the most addictive dinner rolls ever!
Today is SUCH a sad day. It is my final Secret Recipe Club reveal -- and the final SRC reveal for the club as well. Over the past 5 1/2 years, Secret Recipe Club has connected food bloggers from around the globe in a Secret Santa exchange of sorts. I joined when the original owner, Amanda, added a fourth group because of the influx of new members. Over time our numbers have diminished and although it would seem like the smaller the number the easier it is to run, it's quite the opposite. So instead of letting us dwindle down, I thought it would be best to go out with a bang! So while it is sad that the Secret Recipe Club is ending, I'm so happy to have been a part of it and to have met so many great blogging friends along the way. We're keeping the blog alive to share blogging events that our alumni may be hosting or want to share and staying connected with each other.
This month, I was assigned to Erin's blog, Table for Seven. I believe I found Erin's blog in the early years of SRC and I was hoping to get her blog, but then she did leave for a while and I was so bummed. Then she came back and I was super happy to hopefully get the chance to feature her wonderful blog! Erin is a mom of 6 (she has a blog about her angel, Eliza Hope) and has been married to her husband for over 15 years. She has a million recipes on her blog that I want to try, but I did narrow it down to some sweets: Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn, Chocolate Eclair Cake, Chocolate Rolo Cake, Pumpkin Nutella Cookie Bars, and Chocolate Chip M&M Cookie Bars. But ultimately chose to test run a recipe for Thanksgiving: Honey Butter Rolls.
I went to go make my grocery list and add the ingredients needed -- and to double check I had the essentials for the bread dough when it turns out these are 3 ingredient rolls and I had all three ingredients on hand. I love shortcut recipes and even more so, I love using frozen bread dough for different things. These were so delicious! I typically don't like honey, but mixed with the salted butter was just the right hint of sweet. And although they aren't necessarily fast, they are really low hassle to make and would be perfect for if you already have a full menu of food to make - especially on a busy holiday like Thanksgiving! You can set them aside while you cook other things. Bonus: the kitchen will be the perfect warm place for them to rise. Then when the meal is almost ready, these little rolls only take about 15 minutes to bake.
What you need:
- Frozen yeast rolls (Erin used 7-8, I used 9)
- 1/4 cup butter (I used salted)
- 1/4 cup honey
- Spray an cast iron skillet or 8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Arrange frozen rolls in skillet or baking dish, ensuring they have room to rise and expand.
- Cover with plastic cling wrap and allow to rise in a warm place - it can take any where from 2 to 4 hours.
- Once risen, combine butter and honey in a small saucepan and stir until butter melts. Brush onto rolls.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Mine took exactly 15 minutes.
