Super easy skillet Rosemary Dinner Rolls are the perfect accompaniment to any meal. A great way to dress-up frozen rolls.
I love frozen roll and bread dough. It makes it so easy to have homemade rolls and bread anytime. I also love making homemade bread from scratch but let’s face it, it’s a process, a time-consuming process that busy schedules just don’t have time for unless it’s the weekends.
Another reason I love the frozen dough is that you can add to it (just as you can from scratch dough). These delicious easy rosemary dinner rolls are a snap to make. The smell of the bread dough as it is baking combined with the smell of the rosemary is just wonderful. The little extra oomph for this recipe is the kosher salt that you sprinkle on top with the rosemary. While I chose to let the dough rise and bake in an ovenproof skillet, you can use a regular baking pan.
How to Make Rosemary Dinner Rolls
My skillet is a 10 inch one and it will fit 7 frozen dough balls. If you want more rolls, use two skillets or a larger one. Spray skillet with non-stick spray and place frozen dough balls evenly spaced apart in it. They will need room to rise. Cover with plastic wrap that has been spray with non-stick spray. Allow to thaw and rise in a warm area, about 2 – 3 hours, depending on how warm the area is in your home.
When the rolls are just about double their size, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Once the rolls have risen to double their size, carefully brush them with melted butter (you don’t want to deflate the rolls). Sprinkle chopped rosemary and Kosher salt on to rolls.
Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until golden brown and the rolls are done.
- Frozen dinner rolls unbaked (I like Rhodes but you can use what you what find at your store)
- Rosemary chopped
- Melted butter
- Kosher salt
- Notice I didn't put any quantities. That's because you can make as many rolls as you need to feed your family or crowd.
- Spray an oven-proof skillet with cooking spray or coat with olive oil.
- Place frozen rolls in the skillet, leaving plenty of room for rising. I can get 7 in my skillet. You want a couple of inches between each roll. Cover and allow to rise for about 2-3 hours.
- After rising, brush rolls with melted butter. Be gentle with this, you don't want to deflate the rolls.
- Sprinkle on chopped rosemary. Sprinkle with the kosher salt.
- Bake according to your roll package directions, typically it is about 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees, The rolls should be a golden brown and done through.

I don’t have an oven-proof skillet. Do you think a glass pie plate/pan would work for this?
Yes, it will work great as will an 8 or 9 inch cake pan

We love freshly baked bread but like you said, don’t always have the time to make the dough from scratch. Loved the sprinkle of salt with the rosemary too!
What a fun way to make dinner rolls! I’m definitely going to give this a try next time.

Well, aren’t I lucky? I just happen to have some of these rolls in my freezer and a big ol’ rosemary bush outside of my kitchen door!!! Can’t wait to give these a try!
It’s completely amazing how much these grew. I had a ton of Rhodes coupons that I let expire darn it! These are gorgeous.

Love these semi-homemade recipes. You’re taking plain store-bought to the next level. I’ll be picking up a bag of rolls to stash in my freezer so that I can try these next time I go to the store.
