French Onion Pan Rolls Recipe

A crusty topping of Parmesan cheese and onion soup mix adds lots of flavor to these golden brown rolls from Anne Prince of Elkhorn, Wisconsin. "They're great with a bowl of soup or a salad," she says. "I sometimes use frozen rolls to make preparation even easier."

  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
