Fabulous Freelancer Foodie Recipe: Green Onion Rolls

If you’re looking to add some variety to the usual dinner roll fare, then give this green onion rolls recipe a try!

Note: this recipe is adapted from one that appeared in the November, 2020 edition of Relish.


  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • Vegetable cooking oil spray
  • All-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups of chopped green onions
  • ½ teaspoon of pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • A 1-lb package of frozen bread dough that’s been thawed
  • ½ cup of part-skim, shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with the vegetable cooking oil spray.
  2. Put the butter in a large skillet, and heat it over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook the green onions for about two to three minutes, until they become tender.
  4. Stir in the pepper and the garlic powder, then remove the skillet from the heat.
  5. Roll the dough into a 12×8” rectangle on a lightly floured surface.
  6. Spread the onion mixture evenly over the dough, then sprinkle the cheeses on top.
  7. Roll the dough up, starting with a long side, then pinching a seam to seal.
  8. Cut the rolled dough into 12 equal slices and place each slice into a greased muffin cup.
  9. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap that’s also been sprayed with vegetable cooking oil spray, and allow them to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes, until they’ve doubled in size.
  10. Put the rolls into an oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 18 to 20 minutes, until they become golden brown.
  11. Cool on wire rack, then serve.
