  • 1 bag frozen Parkerhouse Style Roll dough, I used Bridgford
  • 6 low-moisture Mozzarella cheese sticks
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  • Thaw frozen dinner rolls overnight in the refrigerator. You will only need 16 of them.
  • Cut 4 of the mozzarella sticks into 4 equal pieces each so that you have 16 pieces. 
  • Fold each defrosted dinner roll around a piece of mozzarella, pinching the edges to seal. Place seam side down in a greased 12-inch cast iron pan.
  • Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 60 to 90 minutes.
  • Cut the remaining 2 pieces mozzarella cheese into 8 pieces each. Once rolls have risen, tuck these pieces between the rolls.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake 10 minutes. 
  • While they are baking, place butter, garlic, garlic salt, and red pepper flakes in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave until butter is melted.
  • Once rolls have baked for 10 minutes, remove them from the oven. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley. Drizzle butter mixture on top.
  • Return to oven and bake 5 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
