Turn store-bought dough into treats pretty enough for any breadbasket.
This is SUCH a time-saver as you use your oven to speed up the rising process!
Red Onion Pinwheels
1 lb. thawed frozen bread dough
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 C finely chopped red onion
Salt and pepper (I like Kosher salt)
1/2 C finely grated parmesan cheese
3 Tbsp. finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Grease a baking sheet. Place the dough onto a floured work surfac; press to flatten. In a medium skillet, melt 2 Tbsp. butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion. Season and cook, stirring, until soft, 5 minutes. Cool.
Stretch the dough into a 10-inch square. Sprinkle with the cooked onion, parmesan and parsley. Roll up jellyroll-style, starting at the short end; cut crosswise into 8 slices. Place on the baking sheet, spacing evenly. Turn off the oven; let the dough rise in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven; place in a warm spot to rise for another 15 minutes. Increase the oven temperature to 400 degrees.
Bake the rolls until they are golden, about 20 minutes. Melt the remaining 2 Tbsp. butter and brush on top of the rolls. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
