Tips & Tricks
Add a little bit of oil or butter to a skillet and place on medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the rolls, flap-side down. Gently turn the rolls with tongs so they are evenly seared on all sides. Sear the rolls for 3-5 minutes. Lastly, bake the rolls for up to 15 minutes in the oven so the interior gets cooked evenly.
