3 Ingredient Easy Parmesan Rolls Recipe

These 3-Ingredient Easy Parmesan Rolls are made using frozen dinner rolls for a simple side dish to any meal. Frozen dough, butter and grated parmesan cheese make cheesy rolls that everyone will love.

Dinner rolls were a staple at our house growing up.  We served them with soup, roast, casseroles, you name it and we had rolls with it!

My mom always used Rhode’s Frozen Dinner Rolls growing up and they were perfectly light and fluffy every time.

The Best Dinner Rolls

I love the taste and smell of homemade rolls baking in the oven, like our Easy Homemade Rolls or 30-Minute Dinner Rolls.

Sometimes you just don’t have the time or desire to make rolls from scratch, so these 3-Ingredient Easy Parmesan Rolls are the perfect solution!

I used these Rhodes Bake-N-Serv® Dinner Rolls for this recipe, but you could easily switch it out for homemade dough or even biscuit dough.

How to make Easy Parmesan Rolls:

Although these rolls are so easy to make, you do need to plan ahead so your rolls have time to rise!

Start by dipping frozen dinner rolls in melted butter.  Completely submerge rolls in butter.

If you aren’t using frozen rolls for this recipe, that’s ok because you could easily dip roll dough into the melted butter at this point.

Roll buttered rolls in grated parmesan cheese until each roll is completely coated.

Place in a 9×13-inch baking pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.


Cover with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature for 3-5 hours.

Be sure to not let the rolls rise too big or they will flatten out when they are baked.  A good rule of thumb is for the rolls to double in size.

Tip:  Spray the inside of the plastic wrap with nonstick cooking spray so the rolls won’t stick to it after they’ve risen.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.

These rolls are always a hit!  We know you will love them just as much as we do!

You can serve these easy rolls with soup like our Slow Cooker Beef Stew, Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup or Slow Cooker Chicken Tortellini Tomato Soup.

My kids think these 3-Ingredient Easy Parmesan Rolls taste like breadsticks, so we also serve them with Italian dishes like our Slow Cooker Bolognese, Spinach Lasagna Rolls or Baked Chicken Parmesan Casserole.

    I like your site very much. In your recipe Fall Off The Bone BBQ Ribs you mentioned liners for your slow cooker. I used to be able to get them but not anymore. What company puts them out? I live in Canada -Sydney ,Nova Scotia. Thank you .
