Herby, buttery, salty bread. Did you just drool? I know I did. These are the things my carb loving dreams are made of and they all come true in this easy Rhodes Rolls hack.

Unbelievably, Easy Rhodes Dinner Rolls Recipe.

I like to pretend I’m the mom that makes everything from scratch ALL the TIME, but let’s be real...that’s not me. Despite having these delicious (from scratch) Classic Fudgy Brownies on our blog, I go for the boxed ones 10 times out of 10. Birthday cake? Well, it’s the funfetti box without fail. 

So, it shouldn’t surprise you that when it comes to the finishing piece on my holiday table, the bread, I often head to the store to buy a bag of Rhode's frozen dinner rolls. There's definitely no shame in my game! 

So, it's now time to introduce you to my favorite easy dinner rolls hack. They’re the best bread option out there that doesn’t involve more work and effort than I have to give, and everyone in my home are big fans.
