If you haven’t been following me on the Southern Plate Family Facebook page you may be wondering why you haven’t heard from me in a few days. I have a good excuse, honest. I just got home from a little road trip to Savannah, Georgia, where I spent a day filming with Miss Paula Deen. I’ll be in an upcoming episode of her “Paula’s Best Dishes” show on the food network. We had a wonderful time together and I have to tell you, that is one hard working lady and as good hearted as the day is long. She actually left her house before we did to fly to New York and host the Today Show the next day!
I can’t post pictures until I have permission from the Food Network but I’ll be telling you more about my time filming and cooking with Miss Paula in an upcoming post.
Yesterday Susan Hatcher asked on Facebook: Help me out on bread dough. I bought some frozen from Kroger for the first time and don’t have a clue what to do with it.
Well boy howdee Susan, do I ever have a post for you! I have a lot of fun with frozen bread dough and post some of my favorite recipes using it on Southern Plate from time to time. I have tons more I’ll post over the next few years but today I wanted to bring you (and Susan) a compilation post of all of the great Frozen Bread Dough posts on Southern Plate so far.

You could pretty much control the world if you kept these babies coming, warm from the oven and slathered in cinnamon cream cheese icing.
Another easily customizable recipe with a gorgeous outcome!
Cinnamon Love Knots
Half dinner roll, half sweet cinnamon treat, these are one of my fun favorites to make with the kids.

Christy, I’ve been a Rhodes dough lover for YEARS (pretty much since my third or fourth bread machine bit the dust). Recently I was browsing your blog and came across the post for Dutch Oven Bread which I found particularly inspirational. Your description of how lovely it would be to have the freedom to bake bread each day and deliver it to your neighbors motivated me to give my own bread making another try. Of course Rhodes Dough will always be my go-to for cinnamon rolls (at the very least). So I thought I’d share 3 recipes that have been successful since beginning this little Southern Plate incited baking spree. The following are recipes I’ve made several times with consistent results and I wanted to share because you make like them too. Reading your blog has given me so many ideas over the past few years as well as courage to try things I previously may not have 🙂 Like taking the time to make my own bread dough!
This basic white sandwich bread is my go to Rhodes Dough alternative: turns out great even with AP flour: http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-basic-white-sandwich-bread-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-166588
This french bread recipe turns out well but I particularly found the part about adding steam to your oven helpful. http://steamykitchen.com/75-baking-the-perfect-loaf-of-french-bread.html
This Depression Era recipe come from Cooking with Clara on YouTube (though I’m giving you a recipe rather than a video to watch). Personally, I make up this GIANT batch of dough and use it to make 7 or 8 unbaked pizzas for the freezer rather than bread itself. It’s great! http://eatathomecooks.com/2009/03/depression-era-homemade-bread.html
You may want to adapt the recipe for “”Schinken im Brotteig”: Ham baked in bread”
We have made it with frozen bread dough and a sliced cooked ham.
The dough sucks some of the salt out of the ham.
