Parmesan-Ranch Pan Rolls

Mom taught me this easy recipe, which is perfect for feeding a crowd. There is never a crumb left over. Mom used her own bread dough, but using frozen dough is my shortcut. I make a wheat bread dough version with poppy and sesame seeds that’s popular, too. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

    Can these rolls be frozen? Can I freeze the rolls before baking them?

    Left off the onions and used frozen dinner roll dough and cut the recipe in half. Loved them.

    forgot to tell you the onions have to be really cut fine, or maybe even put the onions on the bottom, they didn't cook enough on top
