  • What can we do with frozen bread dough?
    Let's start another thread. How many things can we make using frozen bread dough. Main dishes, desserts, breads- come on what can we come up with!!

    Robin

    I'll start with:

    CORDON BLEU STROMBOLI

    1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
    2 tbsp margarine, softened
    8oz thinly sliced deli ham
    1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
    5oz thinly sliced deli chicken

    Roll dough into 10x8in rectangle on floured surface; spread with butter.
    Top with ham, cheese and chicken. Roll up jelly roll style, starting
    with a long side; pinch seam to seal, and tuck ends under. Place seam side down on
    greased baking sheet. Cover ant let rise for 20min. Bake at 350 for
    25-30min until golden.

    Here is a fun sandwich idea for parties! :) -K

    Party Sandwich

    For Bread:
    1 loaf frozen bread dough

    Thaw bread and roll dough into a rope about 20 inches long; place on greased baking sheet. Form dough into ring; pinch ends together to seal. Place greased custard cup or empty metal can in center of ring. Cover dough. Let rise in warm place 1 hour or until doubled in size.

    Heat oven to 375°F. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

    When cooled, slice bread ring in half. On bottom half or ring arrange your choice of cold cuts, (ham, bologna, pepperoni, salami, or roastbeef, turkey, cornbeef etc...and layer with cheeses of your choice, then top with lettuce, tomatoes and onions. Cover with top. Secure with wooden picks. Cut into wedges to serve. Serve condiments on the side!

    STROMBOLI

    1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed OR your favorite homemade pizza dough
    sliced mozzarella cheese
    sliced pepperoni
    sliced ham
    sliced hard salami
    bottled Italian salad dressing to sprinkle on to taste
    Topping:
    1 egg
    1 envelope dry Zesty Italian salad dressing
    Marinara sauce
    Grease a baking sheet and roll out dough to shape of pan. Layer center 1/3 of dough with cheese and meats. Sprinkle with bottled Italian dressing to taste. Using a pizza cutter, cut the sides of the dough diagonally, about every inch. Starting at the top edge of the filling, working your way down each side. Fold top edge of dough in 1st over filling. Then braid sides by folding side strips in over the top of the filling, alternating left, right, left, right. After braiding, fold bottom edge of dough up over filling and braided ends to seal loaf. Beat together egg and dry Italian dressing. Brush over top surface of stromboli. Bake at 350 for 25 min or till brown. Serve warm with your favorite marinara sauce as a dip.
    Use about 4oz of mozzarella for each loaf. Grated cheese worked as well as sliced. You can also add fresh mushrooms, a sprinkle of onion and some grated cheddar. If you stuff it too full, it will leak thru the braid.
    To freeze: Assemble as above. Bake for 15 min or so...just until it starts to brown. Cool, wrap and freeze. To serve, thaw and finish cooking for 15-20 min, or till brown and the cheese is melted.

    Fried dough. Also I have a recipe called:
    Quick Christmas Braid

    1 16oz. loaf frozen bread dough
    2 tbsp. oleo, softened
    1/4 c. brwn sugar
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 c. chopped pecans, optional
    1 c. sifted confectioner's sugar
    4 to 5 tsp. milk
    red sugar
    pecan halves, optional

    Thaw frozen dough completely, roll to 12" square. Cut in 3 strips. Spread oleo down lengthwise center of each strip. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle over butter. top with chopped pecans. Bring dough up around filling, sealing edges, to form 3 ropes. Place on greased baking sheet and loosely braid. Let rise til double, about 30 min. Bake at 375 for 30 to 35 min. (cover braid with foil the last few min. of baking if necessary to prevent over browning..) Combine conf. sugar and enough milk to make a thin glaze. Drizzle over braid while it is still warm. Sprinkle the top with red sugar and trim with pecan halves.

    Makes 1 braid.

    Apple -Brie Bread

    1 (1-pound) loaf frozen bread dough (Pillsbury bread dough can be used)
    2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, divided
    4 cups finely chopped peeled Granny Smith apple (about 1 1/4 pounds)
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar, divided
    3 tablespoons chopped slivered almonds
    4 ounces Brie cheese
    1 teaspoon all-purpose flour

    Thaw dough in refrigerator 12 hours. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples; sauté 10 minutes. Add 1/4 cup brown sugar; cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in almonds.

    Roll dough into a 15 x 12-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Spread apple mixture lengthwise down center of dough. Remove rind from cheese; cube. Arrange cheese on top of apple mixture. Make diagonal cuts, 1 1/2 inches apart, on opposite sides of filling to within 1/2 inch of filling. Fold strips alternately over filling from each side, overlapping at an angle. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°F), free from drafts 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in size. (Skip rising step if using Pillsbury.)

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar and flour in a medium bowl; cut in 1 tablespoon butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until combined. Sprinkle over top of loaf. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until golden.

    Olive Garden Breadsticks

    l Loaf frozen bread - thaw in bowl at
    room temperature
    Pam
    Garlic powder
    Dry oregano leaf - rub between fingers

    When dough is soft enough to knead, spray your fingers with Pam or oil and knead (just until you can shape into cigar-sized pieces - about 8 to 10). Place these 3" apart on Pam-sprayed cookie sheets. Let rise in warm place until doubled - about l-l/2 hours. Then holding Pam about 8" from sticks, lightly spray top of each and then dust with garlic powder and oregano. Bake at 375º about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on rack to serve within a day or two.

    I just copied this from the board a few days ago and forgot to copy who posted this. I am sorry I cannot give credit to the right person.
    They sounded so good to me that I am hoping to try these soon.
