Chicken Filled Stuffing Rolls - and a Giveaway!

Remember a few weeks back when I wrote about my night out at the Rhodes Rolls office?  Well, a few days after I got home, I received a surprise in the mail.  Actually, not so much for me, but for one of you!!  At the event, I received a cookbook, an apron, and a coupon for free Rhodes Rolls product.  And the surprise I received in the mail was a second set of these goodies for one of you!!  I am super excited to give these away, because I have already made a few items from this cookbook, (the rolls from this post are in that cookbook!) and everyone can use a new cookbook and an apron.  I have become a real convert to keeping these frozen rolls in the freezer!!

Details for the giveaway will follow, but I wanted to tell you about these rolls first.  I was so excited to try these out, because they kind of reminded me of a family favorite recipe that I've been making for years.  I accidentally let the dough thaw a little too long, so my rolls rose a lot more than I think they are supposed to in the original recipe.  But these were delicious!  The only thing I would change next time would be the crumb mixture.  It calls for herb bread stuffing, and I'm guessing that it meant something similar to Stove Top Stuffing, dry before it's made.  That's what I used.  But now I have a part way used box of stuffing in my cupboard, and I'm not quite sure what to do with it.  I think next time, I would just use bread crumbs and season them, just because that would be more convenient for me.


And now for the giveaway.  This giveaway will go from now until next Tuesday, October 26th at 11:59pm Mountain time.  The winner will be announced on Wednesday.  You'll have 3 ways to enter:

1 - leave a comment on this post letting me know your favorite fall treat to eat

Please note that you must leave a separate comment for each entry - if you leave them all on one comment, it will only count as one entry!!  If you are already a Facebook fan or follow on Twitter, leave a comment letting me know.
