If you have been following the blog for a while, you know we love a good bread recipe! Add in lots of tasty toppings and you have us craving seconds! In fact, my family is BIG on their bread obsession. From biscuits, crescent rolls, to pull apart bread…we love it all!
Earlier this week, my hubby decided to grill some shish kabobs for dinner! Since he put lots of veggies and chicken pieces on the skewers, I decided to make a bread item to pair with the kabobs.
He was in charge of the grill, which left the smoker free for me to use! YAY!
I had thawed some rolls earlier in the day, so once I combined them in a pan with jalapenos, cheese, seasonings, and some oil…I was able to place on our smoker and let it bake to perfection!
After about 40 minutes, I removed the aluminum foil, added more cheese because why not, and a few short minutes later, my family was pulling this bread apart and digging right in!
Ingredients Needed for this Smoked Cheesy Bread
Rhodes Dinner Rolls- you can find them in the freezer section of your grocery store or online HERE
Garlic- fresh is best, minced
Cheese- I used shredded Mexican blend cheese, but any type desired works
Jalapenos- I used a 4 oz. jar of diced jalapenos that I had drained. If you don’t want the heat, feel free to use green chiles
Olive oil- this helps keep everything moist and combined
Seasoned Salt/Taco Seasoning- adds some tasty flavor
How to prepare this incredible bread:
Take 18 rolls out from your freezer and allow to thaw for 30 minutes.
Quarter each roll and place the pieces into a medium mixing bowl.
Combine the roll pieces with minced garlic, cheese, jalapenos, olive oil, and seasonings.
Spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray (any oven safe pan works if you don’t want to use aluminum pans)
Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan.
Spray a piece of foil with cooking spray and place coated side down on pan to seal.
Allow rolls to rise for about an hour, or until doubled in size.
Preheat smoker to 350 degrees and once heated, place pan onto grates.
Allow to cook for about 40 minutes, removing the aluminum foil and cooking an additional 5-10 minutes.

Nope, if you don’t have a smoker, feel free to use your oven or grill. The temperature remains the same, 350 degrees, but you may have to change the cook time a bit. Start keeping an eye on it around the 30-minute mark and go from there!
