One of the perks of being a blogger is getting invited to fun events. A couple weeks ago, I was able to attend a night at the Rhodes Rolls office for a little demo/class. I really didn’t know what to expect, but I actually learned quite a bit and had such a good time!
First of all, I didn’t know that you can book classes at the Rhodes office. It’s only $3 a person, and it sounds like they are quite popular for wedding and baby showers! Our teacher, Heidi Van Valkenberg, was not only really knowledgeable, but she was hilarious as well. I tell ya – it was quite entertaining!
After the demo, we got to try out a whole bunch of different recipes using Rhodes rolls. One of my favorites was the Bacon Cheese Nibbles (keep reading – recipe is below!) As much as I love homemade bread, I just don’t have time to make it these days. In comes Rhodes Rolls to the rescue! And between you and me – I think these are just about as good as homemade!
There were lots of bread “sculptures” that I thought were cute. But honestly, when I first saw them, I thought that they are something that I would never do myself. But after the demo, and especially as my kids get a little older, I know I’ll be making some of them. How much fun would it be as a kid to eat your lunch sandwich with bread shaped as an animal?
A huge thanks to Rhodes Rolls for having all of us. It was fun to learn more, to meet so many new people, and to get to sample all of that tasty food!
Excuse the poor photo of these Bacon Cheese Nibbles (it was late and I was at my parent’s house), but these are absolutely fabulous. A perfect appetizer or side dish, and it couldn’t be any easier! And I’m sure there will be plenty more recipes using Rhodes Rolls soon!
- 20 Rhodes rolls, thawed but still cold
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- 6 pieces bacon, fried and crumbled
