EASIEST ORANGE ROLLS

This was the 2nd recipe I ever posted on this blog!  Since 99.99% of you probably missed it, I figured it deserved another debut!  It is one of my favorite recipes and it is so easy!  

I tried to re-post this recipe a few times, but each time, the rolls were eaten before I had a chance to snap a photo.  This time I threatened, you better save me at least one roll. . . or else!  Seriously, these rolls disappear in no time.  All you have to do is blink and they will be gone! Ha Ha, but seriously! 

I wanted to show you this recipe before Christmas, because I think it would be perfect to have for breakfast or for an afternoon snack or even to serve alongside dinner!  They only take a few minutes of hands-on time, so they won't take away from your Family time on Christmas.      

1.  Dip the tops of the frozen rolls into butter/sugar mixture.  Spray plastic wrap with cooking spray and place over rolls.  This will help keep the rolls from sticking to the plastic wrap when they rise.   Allow to rise for several hours.  
2.  This is what they should look like when they are ready to bake!  Don't worry - when they bake, the orange topping will run down the sides and flavor the entire roll.  Place in preheated oven and bake until done.  Glaze and enjoy!
EASIEST ORANGE ROLLS
from: Jenn@eatcakefordinner

2 Tbl. butter, melted
6 Tbl. sugar
zest of 1 or 2 oranges
12 Rhodes® frozen dinner rolls

Orange Glaze:
2 Tbl. butter, melted
1 c. powdered sugar
juice of 1 orange juice

Combine melted butter, sugar and orange zest in a small bowl.  Dip the tops of the frozen rolls into mixture and place in a greased 9X13 casserole dish, leaving plenty of room between.  Spray plastic wrap with cooking spray and cover the rolls.  Allow to rise for about four hours or until puffed and touching.  Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.  Combine all glaze ingredients; whisk until smooth.  Drizzle over warm rolls.  Serve warm or at room temperature.  Best eaten the day they are made.

  2. Well that's just genius. I usually stay away from sweet rolls because they're such a pain, but even I could do these!

  4. Have you ever put these together the night before and let them rise? I was wanting to do it for breakfast and thought I would dip them and let them set out over night to rise and finish making them in the morning, but I didn't know how that would work

  5. @ Anonymous - Have you ever heard of that Monkey Bread that people make? It calls for Rhodes rolls and a few other ingredients and you leave that out overnight and just cover it with a towel and it turns out great. I have never actually tried leaving these orange rolls out overnight, but if it works for Monkey Bread, I don't see why it wouldn't work for these? Let me know how it turns out, because I would love to try that too. - Jenn

  7. I meant to get back sooner and let you know how it went; it has taken me so long bc that next day we had them for breakfast, and then I was checked into the hospital by noon to have my baby! haha Anyway, we loved these! And I loved having them pretty much finished by the time I got up and all I had to do was throw them in the oven. Thank you for a great recipe!

  11. I am so dumb. So I made these tonight.. but I didn't do the frosting right apparently. When it says juice from one orange juice... did you just add already made orange juice until the frosting was the correct consistency? I added orange juice concentrate and it is not good. :/ I am so dumb.

    1. Oh no, you have got to try again, because these rolls are amazing. I use a fresh orange (the same orange I used to get the zest from) and I squeeze the juice out of it until the glaze reaches the right consistency. I would not use already made orange juice or concentrate! - Jenn
