This recipe is so simple and fast to prepare. The garlic rolls pair amazingly well with spaghetti, ravioli, rigatoni, lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo, linguine, manicotti, cannelloni, chicken cacciatore, chicken ala king, as well as Italian pizza.
I will be making six garlic rolls today. If you need a larger amount just double or triple the ingredients to make a bigger batch.
I am also using stale leftover dinner rolls that I have on hand, but you can use fresh homemade or store-bought dinner rolls to create your very own garlic rolls.
- 6 dinner rolls
- 6 teaspoons of butter
- 4 to 6 teaspoons of minced garlic, amount depending on your tastes
First, cut a deep x-shaped pattern on the top of each dinner roll with a bread knife or clean kitchen scissors.
Then smear a teaspoon of butter (or more depending on your preference) inside each dinner roll.
Now, add as much or as little minced garlic as you like inside each dinner roll.
Place each roll on a baking tray and transfer the pan to the oven. Bake your garlic rolls at 350 degrees for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the butter has melted. Then serve your garlic rolls with your favorite Italian dish and enjoy!
You can also add ricotta, mozzarella, parmigiano reggiano, and gorgonzola to the center of each garlic roll if you'd like. Today, I made my baked cheesy pepperoni and meatball spaghetti recipe. So, I didn't add any type of cheese to my garlic rolls.
