        I wonder if I could make hamburger rolls from Rhodes frozen loaf bread dough.
        I calculate that I could make four rolls from a one-pound loaf, four ounces each.
        Would that work?
        I use frozen bread dough to make SUB rolls. I make eight rolls from three pounds of dough. It works very well.

          Sure you can make hamburger rolls from our Bread Dough. That recipe is found on our website at The recipe uses our Rolls but you could use the loaves. You should be able to get 6 hamburger rolls from one loaf. Or you could make larger ones as you were saying too!

            I had assumed (incorrectly) that 24 dinner rolls were three pounds, not two. Following your advice, I used one-pound of Rhodes bread dough. I thawed it overnight in the fridge. Next day, I cut it into six pieces, 75 grams each. I pressed each piece into a circle and placed them on parchment on a half-sheet pan. I omitted the egg wash and sesame seeds. I proofed them in the oven for one hour, then baked them in convection mode at 350°F for 15 minutes. They were just right. I just ate one.

            Glad you enjoyed them and it worked out for you. 12 Dinner Rolls = one loaf of bread (and each Bread loaf is a one pound loaf). But as you did with the Bread, you can make it as big as you would like to. The Dough makes an excellent hamburger roll!

    I live in a very remote area. On an evening when we wanted to have a hamburger but had no buns I decided to try making buns from the frozen rhodes dinner rolls I keep in my freezer. One bite of the bun and we have never purchased commercial hamburger buns again. The “homemade” version using Rhodes Dinner Rolls is far superior to anything you can buy ready made. And you can make exactly the number you need. In a household with two adults , when I buy a package of 8 buns I am left with 6 buns I don’t want and they become freezer damaged by the time I want a bun again. Problem solved with Rhodes.
