Buttery Skillet Rolls

Now that school has started my days are starting to get busier and busier.

Have you noticed that Summer is for being lazy, then all of a sudden your schedule is packed???

Nowadays we have school buses to catch, homework to get done, early dinner, bath time, and bedtimes.

This week, I started tennis lessons and Little Butt starts Tee Ball practices tonight.

I am in two different book groups, have joined the PTA (not that I've gone to a meeting), and am thinking about putting Little Butt into Girl Scouts.

Are you tired yet??? I like to stay busy...

I absolutely love these rolls because they are so low maintenance. You take some frozen, rolls, set them out to rise for a few hours and you are pretty much done! Love that!!

With life getting more hectic, low maintenance recipes are what I'm all about.

Not only are these easy, they are also so versatile. You can change up the seasonings and have a different flavored roll each time you make them! This time, I used some Italian Seasoning and some grated Parmesan cheese. The Italian Seasoning I use has some red pepper flakes in it so these had the perfect amount of spice! Love that!

So grab your frozen bag of dinner rolls, your choice of seasoning, and let's bake!

These are the dinner rolls I used. They are yeasted, unrisen, and frozen. Perfect!

Spray a cast iron skillet with tons of olive oil cooking spray. Or you can use actual olive oil if you are into that kind of thing. This skillet is 10 inches. You can use smaller if you want. Place some frozen dinner rolls into the skillet. Space them well so there's plenty of room for rising.

Now cover this bad boy with a dish towel, place it in a non-drafty place, and let them sit for a few hours.

Look how pretty! I love risen dough. I may be weird but whatever!

Now gently brush some melted butter onto the tops of the rolls. Be careful not to poke them or they will deflate (just ask my Baby Sister and the first batch she decided to poke while saying "what's this??").

Sprinkle with your seasoning and cheese if you are using it. Then gently brush some more butter on the tops.

Now sprinkle with some sea salt. Mmmmm...risen dough balls with seasoning, cheese, and salt. Delish!!

Now stick those babies into the oven and bake them until they get golden brown.

Serve the rolls hot, straight from the skillet, and enjoy!!!
