Italian Herb Skillet Bread

Rhodes dinner rolls make for a great, easy accompaniment to any meal. This Italian herb skillet bread version kicks them up a bit by topping them with savory herbs.

Italian Herb Skillet BreadYou can substitute any seasonings you prefer on your Italian herb skillet bread. I found these rolls to be quite yummy with a honey-flavored BBQ rub too. If you don’t have an 8″ skillet, you can make these in a high-rimmed metal baking pan (such as a cake pan). Just make sure the roll dough balls are about 2″ apart.

Also try my garlic Parmesan skillet bread and my rapid rolls, also made in the skillet.
