    I’m trying these tomorrow, only putting a homemade meatball and chunks mozzarella inside. I’ll serve with marinara sauce on the side, following your recipe for prepping and baking. wish me luck!

    This is similar to a recipe i found on your site about 10 years ago. I have been looking for it but can’t find it. I forget the name of it but I remember it had pepperoni slices, and string cheese logs that were cut up into About 2” pieces. I think you put a few thawed rolls together and rolled it out into a circle then cut wedges. You placed pepperOni slices, 2 I think, a piece of string cheese on a wEdge and then rolled them Up. I think they were brushed With a yummy garliCky oil or butter before baking. I think they Were called something like pepperoni or pizza rOllups. Do you still have that recipe available somewhere? KiCking myself that i didn’t save it!

    I’m making these now. I brushed the tops with olive oil and sprinkle with Parm and Everything Bagel. Keep you fingers crossed. I am concerned about rising length time. I added string cheese to the pepperoni. I hope it softens or melts. I love this roll dough. I cut one “lump” in half to make finger sandwiches. One lump is great for a small hamburger bun. My friends and neighbors are hooked on your product.

      Yes, you can. If you have the Dinner Rolls you can use 12 rolls to make a loaf of bread. Let the rolls thaw and shape into a loaf. Let it rise and bake it at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
