Unstuffed Crab Poppers

Delicious Unstuffed Crab Poppers

If there is anything you have learned from me during this blogging adventure it’s that I have a serious weakness for dips and these Unstuffed Crab Poppers are certainly no exception. There’s something  about garlicky cheese dips spread over top of a piece of delicious bread that I cannot resist! I can’t think of a better way to serve hot dips then in a ring of fresh baked bread for dipping. Can you? I love how Rhodes gives that from scratch taste without all the work. Crackers don’t stand a chance! Remember this jalapeno popper dip? That’s exactly what I’m talking about! This time we are making a creamy, cheesy crab dip that is one of my all time favorites! Can’t go wrong there, can you?  I love how pretty this bakes up – it’s perfect for the holidays.

So let’s get started! Shall we? First spray a baking dish, I like to use pie plates, with non stick cooking spray. Place 8 or 9 rolls inside the dish and let them soften for about an hour or just until they are soft.

Now grab a pair of clean scissors and cut each roll into fourths. Carefully arrange the dough bits into a ring around the outside of the baking dish. Just like this.

Now that that is ready it’s time to make the creamy crab dip. You’ll do this by mixing together a little cream cheese, mayonnaise, crab meat, garlic, ground mustard, and green onions. So so yummy!

When you’ve got that all mixed together carefully spoon it into the center of the dough bits. It will bake right along the bread. When it’s finished you’ll have fresh baked poppers ready for dipping. It’s like a one stop appetizer shop :).

Now it’s time to bake it. You’ll bake it for 20 to 30 minutes covered with foil (depends on how big your dish is). Then take the foil off and bake for another 10 minutes to let things get golden brown. Carefully remove from your Unstuffed Crab Poppers from the oven. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving and then enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 8 or 9 Rhodes frozen dinner rolls
  2. 8 oz. cream cheese, softened (I like to use the 1/3 less fat kind because it doesn’t bake up greasy)
  3. 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  4. 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, heaping
  5. 4 medium green onions, sliced (@ 1/4 cup)
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  7. 2 cloves of garlic, minced or grated
  8. 1 (6 oz.) can crab meat, drained
Instructions
  1. Place 8 or 9 frozen rolls in a 9-inch pie pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Let them thaw for about an hour or just until soft. Cut each roll into fourths. Arrange the dough bits into a ring around the pan. Meanwhile prepare dip by stirring all ingredients together until well combined. Spread into a shallow baking dish. Carefully spoon dip into the center of the bread ring. Gently lift the dough bits and spread the dip under them if necessary. Cover loosely with foil, really just set foil over the top and bake on 350 for 20 minutes. If dip looks like it's just about done remove foil and bake for another 10 minutes or until the bread is a golden brown. If not, let it baked covered for another 10 minutes before removing the foil to finish baking.

Easy Thanksgiving Leftover Sliders

Thanksgiving Sandwiches

 

Last year I posted a grilled Thanksgiving sandwich, but this year I decided to switch things up and use my new favorite warm and heat rolls and make these Easy Thanksgiving Leftover Sliders. I’ve got to say I like them even better – and for lots of reasons. Since I use these rolls, it takes only a matter of seconds to start my sandwich on rolls that taste like they were just baked without ever mixing, kneading, rising, or baking. In fact, I didn’t even have to turn on the oven if I didn’t want to. Which I didn’t. I totally popped these babies in the microwave for a few seconds. Shut the front door, RIGHT?!?  Seriously, after turkey day, who really wants to spend any more time in the kitchen? Then I added my favorite Thanksgiving trimmings… some turkey, a little stuffing, some cranberry sauce, and a little cheese. You could add mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes or what ever it is that you like. You could build your sandwich with hot or cold leftovers as well. That’s what is so fun about these sliders. I plan on popping some rolls in the over the day after Thanksgiving and lining up a little slider buffet for my family while they are baking. I figure while they are getting all soft and delicious, I will set everything out with serving spoons. When the rolls have finished baking I’ll set them at the start of the line with a bread knife and plates and let everyone build their own sammies. Are you with me? Totally yummy! Totally easy! It’s a win-win, isn’t it? And you can be sure that after I’ve had my Thanksgiving Leftover Slider I will be digging in to a slice of pumpkin pie with real sweetened whipped cream. I know you wouldn’t expect anything less of me.

Pumpkin Swirl Loaf

Fall is most definitely upon us. While I welcome the cooler weather… and sweatshirts… and hot cocoa… and PUMPKIN…. I’m always sad to give up summer days with my kids. If I can’t have my kids home, at least I can have apple cider and pumpkin treats. Pumpkin treats are some of my very favorites. What about you? This Pumpkin swirl loaf is pretty tasty. I liked it toasted with my favorite cinnamon honey butter slathered over the top, BUT I could be convinced to glaze it with icing just like cinnamon rolls too. In fact, next time I make this, I think that’s just what I’m going to do!  Continue reading

Warm Delicious Rolls Baked in Under 10 Minutes

fast easy delicious rolls

You guys, I’m so excited to tell you about these delicious rolls! They have seriously become my little secret weapon – no joke!!! They taste amazing and take only minutes – like under 10…. maybe 8. And if you really want to push it, you can microwave them in less than a minute. That’s it, 30 seconds. Would you like to know how? #Rhodesbread new Warm-N-Serv Rolls.

Let’s talk about some of the reasons I love these!

1) Taste. Let’s just get this one out of the way… these taste amazing. Actually, I’m not sure if I ever want to mix, knead, rise, and bake rolls ever again. Like seriously, what’s the point?

2) Convenience. These are super easy to prepare. They take under 10 minutes (like 8) in the oven and under a minute in the microwave. 

3) Meals. These are the perfect way to complete a meal. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve struggled just to get something in the crock pot or made so that we have something on the table to eat when dinner rolls around. Thinking about the little extra sides completely escapes me. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve got nothing. Notta. Zilch. Now that I know about these rolls, I love that I can pull them out of the freezer and serve them with seriously no effort what so ever (as long as I remember to put them on my shopping list). While I’m in the freezer section if I can remember to stock up on frozen veggies, I actually can make it look like I’ve got my act together – well sort of any ways. Now don’t get me wrong – even though these are my go to when time is short – the taste and presentation is good enough that I  won’t hold back for more special meals like Christmas or Thanksgiving…… I’ll totally be serving these!

3) Snacks. The first place my kids go when they get home after school is the kitchen. Most of the time they are beyond starving and need something fast!!!! Hangry kids are never ever good. One of their favorite snacks is little sandwiches they make with these rolls! They pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds, add a little of their favorite meat, cheese, and condiments or even some PB and jelly and are good to go! I love that it’s not junk food. 

4. Treats. I’m not sure about you, but I love cinnamon honey butter. Sometimes in the mid afternoon I need a little somethin’ somethin’ to get me through the day. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that you could catch me warming a roll into the microwave and slathering it with my favorite cinnamon honey butter and enjoying every single bite. If I didn’t have any of that in hand…. I would probably talk myself into using a little Nutella or Hershey’s chocolate spread (which we keep on hand because of my daughter’s nut thing). Are you with me?!?!

Have I convinced you that you totally need to try these out? I seriously hope so because you don’t know what you’re missing if these aren’t a part of your life. Trust me. Just do it.

Disclaimer – I am being paid to write this post, however, I’ve got to tell you that every {single} word is the truth (even the parts I’d rather not have to admit like I don’t have my stuff together 100% of the time!)
