How to Make Semi Homemade Dinner Roll Ahead
FREEZER: Thaw the dinner rolls, roll and shape. Place them in the muffin cups, Let them rise about partway—just until starting to puff, but not ready to bake.. Make sure the muffin cups have been sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Once the rolls are frozen solid, pop them out of the muffin cups and place in a freezer safe bag. Label and date. UNBAKED ROLLS CAN BE KEPT FROZEN FOR ABOUT A MONTH, after which the yeast starts to have trouble rising the dough after thawing.
THE DAY BEFORE BAKING: Remove shaped rolls from the freezer, place them back in the muffin tin (sprayed with non stick cooking spray). Cover and let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
READY TO BAKE: When ready to bake, remove the pan of rolls from the refrigerator and let them finish proofing at room temperature. This will take a little longer than usual, about an hour. The rolls may still be cool to the touch, but when they have obviously proofed, they’re okay to bake. Bake as usual.
REFRIGERATOR: This is done BEFORE the rise and just after they have been shaped. Cover, and put into the refrigerator.
READY TO BAKE: Take the rolls out of the refrigerator about an hour and a half before you want to bake them and let them rise until puffy. It’s okay if they’re still a little cool to the touch; as long as they’ve puffed up, they’re ready to bake. Bake as usual.
