Fresh Loaf of Rhodes Bread

If you love the smell, texture, and taste of homemade bread straight out of the oven, then you NEED to check out these frozen loaves of dough that you can easily bake at home!

There’s no need to spend a ton of time measuring out ingredients and guessing about what yeast to use, when you can pull dough out of the freezer and have crusty warm bread at your convenience. Plus – at around $1 per loaf, the price is hard to beat! 😮

Roads Frozen Bread Loaves

The possibilities are endless with this dough as it can be used to make cinnamon rolls, pizza, calzone, and even bread bowls for soup.

How To Bake a Rhodes Loaf of Bread:

  • When buying, check closure tab for ‘best by’ date. Try to get dough with a ‘best by’ date at least 8-9 months out.
  • Make sure loaves are separate and not stuck together. Also make sure there are not a lot of ice crystals in the bag.
  • Be sure to are use the proper size loaf pan (1 pound). A 1 pound pan measures 8-1/2 X 4-1/2 X 2-1/2.
  • Spray loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place frozen dough in pan and cover with plastic wrap sprayed with non-stick spray.
  • Place pan on countertop and allow dough to thaw then rise until 1 inch above the pan. (Typically from 4-6 hours. For faster preparation, speed method directions are on the package.)
  • Remove wrap then bake for 25-30 minutes at 350°F for white dough and 325°F for wheat dough.
  • Remove from pan to cooling rack immediately after baking.
  • Let cool slightly before slicing.
  • Place loaf on it’s side and use a serrated bread knife or an electric knife to slice.

    Rhodes is an AMAZING product and they used to sell dinner rolls that my family and friends would rave about. They honestly thought they were fresh even though they were frozen. I can’t find them anywhere anymore! If anyone knows where they are, please let me know.

    • Rachael

      You may be able to have your grocer order you some.

    • Amanda

      I see them at Walmart all the time. The rolls are by the frozen garlic breads at my store. Hope you find them.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes we make the rolls for every holiday! So good! They are usually in the freezer section at my local grocery store or Walmart. I would ask the next time. 😀

    • Jen

      Hmmm…maybe it’s regional. I tried Walmart but they didn’t have them anymore. I’ll keep looking. Thanks for the suggestions!

      • Amanda

        Do you have a food lion near you? I’ve seen them there too.

      • Bremoeller

        I have seen these at food max and food4 less as well.

    • ❤️my_lineman

      My Walmart and Kroger both sell Rhodes rolls! I could probably eat the whole 40 pack myself lol 😜

  2. Kate

    I’ll have to try this. I grew up spoiled. My mom made all our bread from scratch. She even buys wheat and grinds her own flour. Her bread is amazing and I have never been as successful as her at baking bread. After all those years of fresh homemade bread, store bought stuff has never appealed to me. This seems like a nice option. There is nothing better than hot bread fresh from the oven. Thanks for the suggestion! The prep time is a little awkward though. It takes too long to do after work, but I bet it would probably rise for too long if I got it out in the morning and baked it after work. I’ll have to try it on the weekend though.

    • jac

      Kate, I think you can move the rolls from the freezer to the fridge and let them thaw but not rise. Then you might have time after work to take them out of the fridge to rise & bake. I have a friend who makes her own dough and freezes it like the Rhodes product, and she uses this trick often to cut down on prep time.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ya you’ll have to test it on a weekend to see how long it takes to rise. 😀 On the back of the bag it has a few different methods and times to thaw and rise. So easy though!

    • Roxy

      Homemade bread is actually very easy. I found the whole process very intimidating, but then someone gave me a bread machine and then a friend shared her recipe with me. I put all the ingredients in the bread machine and use the dough program. 1h 20′ later, I take the dough out, shape it, place in bread pan and if I have time I let rise 30 more minutes. Then it goes in the oven for about 40 minutes. It’s delicious, no preservatives and you can add flax seed, pumpkin or sunflower seed, top with sesame seeds etc.

      • Lolita

        Any chance you can share the recipe? (if it isn’t a secret?) I have been thinking about getting a bread machine…

        • Roxy

          I’m sorry, I just now saw your message and it’s pretty late. I will write it tomorrow in a comment or leave your email if you prefer.

      • Rae

        He made is best. These frozen dough products work but just are not the same. I grew up in a large family and my mom made homemade dough to make what her family called dough gobs you may know them as fry bread, elephant ears, or donuts even. She also used the same dough to make dumplings(what we called boiled dough gobs). The name isnt appealing but they were my childhood.

        I used to have a bread machine but gave it away infavor of my kitchen aid mixer to do all my dough mixing.

  3. Malinda

    These are fabulous. I use the rolls for the holidays. I have character cake pans from Wilton. At Christmas time for luncheonsI put the roll dough in the Christmas tree or snowman pan and bake it for a large beautifully decorated sandwich.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wow that sounds so fun! Thanks for sharing 😀

  4. Stacey

    This was our favorite growing up…warm bread out of the oven with my moms homemade strawberry jam!! Yum 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yum! I agree 😀

  5. Susan Crawford

    I buy the Spartan brand of frozen bread d8ugh. It is $4.50 for 5 loaves. I probably bake 3 a week. Much easier than tHan making from scratch.

  6. Regina

    I love this stuff.. my mom always makes it when I go visit.. dangerous – I usually end up eating the whole loaf

    • Haunnah

      I saw a recipe on pinterest where you could cook Rhodes rolls in a crockpot. I haven’t tried it but it sounds like it’s worth a shot.

  7. Tam

    There is an awesome recipe for baked spaghetti braid using this bread on Rhodes’ website. It’s a favorite and changes up the plain spaghetti routine. I have also used this bread for cinnamon rolls.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yum! Thanks for sharing Tam😀

  8. Lyn

    Do they make frozen sourdough bread?

  9. Adriaddiemom

    We use these as pizza dough for homemade pizzas!

  10. Laura

    If you like the frozen then I recommend trying out a bread machine. Quick, easy, and inexpensive (about 30 cents a loaf). I found my dad a Cuisinart bread machine at a thrift store for $7 and he is loving the homemade bread for pennies!

    • K

      Yes! I love my bread machine. Add all the ingredients, set the timer and I have a fresh warm loaf of bread when I get home from work!

      • Just Me

        I usually use mine for dough and bake in the oven.

        • Roxy

          Me too! It comes out better than the one baked in the machine, but that will work too if you’re in a hurry. You can even use the delay function, place everything in the machine at night and wake up to fresh bread.

  11. Patricia Lavenz-Goff

    Back when I was a newleywed at 16 I used to get frozen bread at the Commissary all the time. I would bake a loaf for breakfast every day before school and my husband and I would eat the whole loaf hot from the oven with melted butter. Not sure if it was this brand or not but it was very addicting.

  12. Ellen

    I make my own bread from scratch using the “artisan bread in five minutes a day” method. It’s delicious!

  13. Amy

    I love Rhodes. I highly suggest trying the microwave cinnamon rolls. Individual rolls, 30 seconds straight from freezer. Delicious!

  14. Amy

    My mother in law taught me, as well as many other family members, how to make our own bread. I make 6 loaves at a time and freeze it. Deliciousness!

  15. Amy

    I have a bread machine but haven’t found a great bread recipe. If anyone has a GREAT one, please share!

  16. Vivian

    I always use bridgeford frozen dough, it’s so good. Probably very similar. Their website has awesome recipes.

  17. Mary

    The dough makes awesome cinnamon rolls too! Roll it out, spread melted butter on it, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, roll it up and slice it. Place the 1 1/2″ slices in a 9×13 greased pan at 350 until golden brown. Yum yum and so easy!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I really want to try that! 😀👍

    • kym

      monkey bread too!

  18. Sarah Bakes

    I LOVE Rhodes but since my husband got me a bread machine for my birthday, I’ve enjoyed making homemade and letting the machine mix and rise the dough the first round.
    This has been a good recipe for homemade loves or my favorite- Rolls!!
    ^^^^^^^ Mmm mm good basic homemade recipe but it makes a TON. I usually only half the recipe and cut down on the sugar by half the amount called for (for a lighter not so dense sweet bread)

  19. Shanshan

    I make my own yeast bread from scratch, usually 2 to 2.5 hours from start to finish. All you need is a kitchen aid mixer. Just pick a simple bread recipe and keep making the same bread till you get a hang of how yeast works with the dough, then, it’d be easy to pick up the rest like cinnamon rolls, sour dough bread, sandwich bread, dinner rolls, hamburger buns… They’re all the same just a bit different here and there. It’s worth it to learn making yeast bread! I’m surprised to learn you have to thaw Rhodes for 4 to 6 hours, you could make bread from scratch using half the time.

  20. maggie

    Instead of paying $1 a loaf, how about paying around 0.25 or less? No bread machine needed either! Discover the magic of NO KNEAD BREAD — 5 minutes of measuring & mixing, and set it aside. You’ll have great dough the next day — with NO WEIRD CHEMICALS, made from your pantry.

    This recipe is the foundation–watch the video to see how:
    There’s more here:

    It’s ideal for busy people!

  21. JenT.

    If anyone has not tried them, you should really try Rhode’s cinnamon rolls as well (in the freezer section next to the product featured here). They likely do not save money compared to the stuff in the can or from scratch, but they are much more convenient, fresh tasting, and delicious! Extremely easy to just bake up 2 if that’s all you need….. while when you buy the cans.. you pretty much have no choice but to bake all of them.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great idea! Thanks Jen

  22. Cori

    If you can’t find Rhodes at Walmart look for Bridgeford. It’s frozen bread dough also and it’s yummy. We make our bierocks using it .

    My Moms Recipe for Bread and Rolls that I won first place in a cooking contest.
    Redi Rise Yeast Rolls, Bread, Cinnamon Rolls
    Combine and stir together in a large pot 1 pint of sweet milk,1/2 cup of cooking oil, scant 1/2 cup of sugar. Heat to just under boiling point and cool to lukewarm dissolve 1 package of yeast and 1/4 cup of warm water and add to lukewarm milk mixture. Measure before sifting about 2 1/2 cups of self rising flour to make consistency of thin cake batter pour in large greased bowl let rise covered in a warm place until it doubles in size about 2 hours then add more self rising flour to make a stiff dough 2 1/2 or more. Cover and place in the fridge. until ready to use then you can get it out and knead lightly on floured board and shape how ever you like then let rise till doubled in size .Bake at 400 degrees for rolls, bread or cinnamon rolls. This will last about 7 days kept in the fridge. I hope makes this enjoys it as much as my family has all my life. Nothing like coming in and smelling cinnamon rolls baking in the oven after or yeast rolls, or bread baking in the oven. Mom always spoiled us with wonderful homemade treats and jams and jellies.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wow! Sounds amazing Nicole. Thanks so much for sharing your special recipe! <3

  24. Christine

    I found these at Walmart, they had the 5 loaf bag for $4.92, I use to be with my grandmother when she made bread but I never picked up the concept myself. As a child we use to have a Merita bread factory right off of the highway, you could smell that fresh baked bread for days and just make your mouth water.

  25. Rebecca

    Going to have to try this, thanks!! Will try using it for cinnamon rolls too. My ex’s mom taught me how to make homemade bread & cinnamon rolls & I made them a few times years ago, but no longer recall how. Good stuff!!!
