You may know Krystal Keith as the singer of the sweet father/daughter wedding dance song, “Daddy Dance With Me,” which she wrote for her own wedding as a surprise for dad Toby Keith. Or maybe you know her from her official debut single, “Get Your Redneck On.” [Get it here!] But did you know she’s also super talented in the kitchen? Krystal’s been creating delicious meals from family recipes for years and featuring them in her blog, The Barnyard Bistro. But now she’s sharing some of them exclusively with Great American Country! Check back with us every Tuesday for a new recipe from Krystal.
“On Thanksgiving Day, the last thing I have time to do is go through the knead-rise, knead-rise, shape-rise process of making dinner rolls from scratch,” says Krystal. “I make almost everything from scratch, so I never feel guilty throwing in a little something “semi-homemade” like these pull-apart rolls. Buying frozen dough makes life on Turkey Day so much easier. I use this store-bought dough for everything from cinnamon rolls to bread braids, to dinner rolls. This recipe is a go-to that never disappoints and it is beautiful to boot.”
14-18 Rhodes white dinner roll dough balls (I buy them at Walmart in a 36-pack, but you can use any brand)
4 Tbsp butter, melted, divided
1/2 tsp dried rosemary, chopped
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place dough balls in a greased pie plate. Start by making an outer ring around the edge of the pie plate and working your way in until the plate is filled. You can leave a little room in the plate if you wish. They will double in size but you want them to rise and push into each other. Brush the top with 2 Tbsp of melted butter and sprinkle, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper.
Turn the oven off and place your pie plate of dough into the oven, leaving the oven cracked open 2-3 inches. This will speed the process of rising the dough. Let the dough rise until it has doubled in size (around 1 hour). Close the oven and turn it on, to 350 degrees. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are medium golden brown.
Brush the remaining 2 Tbsp of melted butter and add just a pinch more salt if desired. Happy Thanksgiving!
