Today in Fauxbulous Food, we have Italian Herb Skillet Bread! To call this "Faux" is really kind of a stretch. I am letting it slide into this category because it calls for frozen bread dough. Which, if you're anything like me, actually IS baking! (I openly admit to NOT being a pastry goddess.) But I'm working on it! (baby steps)
The recipe and method I used for this dish is the exact same one that I found on Plain Chicken. The only thing I had to change was the specific brand of frozen dinner rolls. For the life of me I could not find Rhodes Bake-N-Serve! So I went with Bridgford frozen rolls. Whatever brand you end up going with, make sure you buy the kind that 'actually' needs to be baked. Not just the heat and serve kind.
If you decide to try this out, make sure to bake 2 batches! My husband devoured the first pan all by himself! Yes, they're THAT good! I have found a new side kick for all kinds of dinners. Fun and oh-so-easy to make! Enjoy!
7 Take-N-Bake dinner rolls, *I used 10 (big skillet, I guess)
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
3 Tbsp butter, melted
Parmesan cheese for dusting
Spray small iron skillet with cooking spray. Place the rolls in the skillet, leaving plenty of room for rising. Cover and allow to rise for several hours. (Mine needed 4 hours to rise completely.) Uncover rolls. Combine herbs and mix with butter. Brush rolls with half of the mix. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Just until bread is nice and brown. Remove from oven and brush with rest of butter. Serve in skillet.
LESLIE'S NOTES: The herbs in this dish are completely optional. If there's something on the list that you are not a fan of, simply leave it out. For example: I used the crushed red pepper flakes, so I left out the regular pepper. I also did not use a full 1/4 tsp of any of the other herbs. I pretty much just used a dash of each. Perfect! AND...If you are wanting more of a large round loaf in your skillet; simply let your rolls rise a little longer until they all become one. And proceed with rest of recipe.
