Red Onion Pinwheels

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.
