      Hi Erin,
      You could make the same thing, only use homemade bread or roll dough.
      It wouldn’t be as easy or convenient, but it would work just as well.
      Possibly you have another brand available to you there….in the freezer section.

  • lindsey - 02/26/2012 - 6:34 pm

    I made one of these this morning for my neighbor whose mother recently passed. She said it was the best thing she had eaten in a long long time. I make them a LOT for my own family — usually on Sundays when we have a bit more time. I usually take my dough balls out of the freezer the night before and let them thaw in the refrigerator, then let them proof for about an hour before proceeding with the recipe as written. Takes a bit of the time off of the preparation in the morning. Thanks for the great, easy recipe!ReplyCancel

      Hi Courtney,
      After the flower rises to double, I made DEEP impressions in the petals where the jam goes. My jam was also quite
      thick in consistency as well.

      Hi Lenor,

      They can be baked the day before, however they are always best baked the day you want to serve them.
      Warm them slightly before serving, if you need to bake early.

  • Jamye - 01/20/2012 - 8:04 pm

    Wondering..do you think you could pan fry the chicken and make the sauce at night then combine in slow cooker in AM? Wanting to try this for Sunday lunch but can’t get it all done in the AM. How do you think the chicken would hold up over night? I wonder about it getting soggy. Also, would it help to add a little cornstarch to flour mixture?ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 01/21/2012 - 10:50 am

      Hi Jamye,
      Sure….you could fry the chicken and make the sauce at night and cook it the next day.
      The flour should be enough of a thickening agent. If the sauce needs to be thicker at the end of cooking time,
      you could do cornstarch and cold water, but since it already has flour as thew thickening agent, I would probably mix
      a bit of milk with a tablespoon of flour (shake it up really well, so that there aren’t any lumps), then slowly stir it into
      the sauce.
      Hope this helps,
      jonnaReplyCancel

  • Mary - 01/23/2012 - 3:23 pm

    Just wondering about a point in the directions. I never says when to add the milk, cream or chicken broth. I am assuming after you cook the roux a bit but you might want to check that since the directions are missing that point.

      Hi Moda,

      Well….I’m not sure. Did you dredge the chicken rolls in flour, then brown them in med/high oil?
      That should do the trick. You can use margarine or oil. Butter tends to burn too quickly.
      Hope you ate it anyway!

    I made this tonight with homemade rosemary, garlic, pepper bread, a green salad, and sauteed escarole. I didn’t have any chicken broth so I substituted white wine and added a knorr chicken boullion cube. In addition, I added a small shallot and 1 clove of garlic. I also made it in the oven instead of in a crockpot. My picky 8 and 3 year olds both ate it as did my husband who doesn’t like most chicken dishes. This is a fabulous dish and I thank you for posting the recipe.

    Just by sheer accident, I happen to stumble upon your blog, and see that you are also on foodbuzz, which I will look up later. The real reason I stopped by your blog, is because a Hungarian food blogger linked back to your blog, baking your yummy little apple mini pastries which, by the way resemble the famous Rugelach that requires cream cheese, and butter, instead of shortening…otherwise the shape is the same, but not the filling.

    Your pie crust recipe is great, especially the vinegar added to it, but I use a little butter, maybe 1/4 cup (cold) and less shortening, by 1/4 cup. also about 2 Tbsp of ice water. All the shaking, and “not touching by hand” can also be used in the food processor which gives the same results, but then…either way, at some point, you have to roll out the dough…without rolling out the dough that you did not clearly explain, will give foreign bloggers a misunderstanding of the method.

    She claims, that just shaking the dough will form the pastry together, just like the way it’s supposed to turn out!…LOL
    I just found this to be so incredibly funny, as in LOL funny, that she posted in her blog, in Hungarian!

    Enough, said…Just love your yummy little apples in a blanket, and I do want to try it myself…but I think I will just stay with my trusty food processor to do the shaking…unless I want to exercise my arms, which I do it at the gym, lately:DDDReplyCancel

    I had one red and one green apple that were begging to be used. I did a julienne of both so that I could get the red and green togeher in each blanket. Oh so yummy! I did a super easy carmel sauce from sweetened condensed milk by request of my boyfriend and it made a perfect dip. I dont make many deserts so he thought this was an amazing treat. I am a fan of your blog and this was just such a great easy Idea I wanted to say thanks for helping me get off my butt and bake (and making it so easy!).

  • Sarah S. - 03/12/2012 - 1:58 pm

    Sounds incredibly simple in the Tupperware- what a great idea! But where does the 1/2 cup of water come in to play? I’ve read the recipe over and over and do not see where you are using the 1/2 cup of water- ? Also, this is the 2nd pie crust recipe I’ve seen with egg and vinegar- what is the purpose of these, especially the vinegar? Does it make the crust flakier or better tasting or does it just help in the cooking?ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 03/12/2012 - 2:52 pm

      Hi Sarah,

      At the bottom of the post is the recipe. After shaking the flour & shortening until pea size lumps remain, you then add the water/vinegar/egg mixture. Toss some of the flour/short over the liquid. Replace the lid and shake, shake shake again until it forms a ball. If you need to add more flour, add only 1 tablespoon at a time. The mixture should leave the sides of the bowl, and form a loose ball, that you can bring together with your hands. This way, you aren’t making the pastry tough by handling it too much.

      As for your question about the vinegar…Vinegar can serve two useful roles in pie crusts — it promotes tenderness and can keep the crust from getting too brown. Vinegar brings water to the dough, which is essential to the creation of the crust, but also a mighty, gluten-slaying acid.

      Hope this helps,
      JonnaReplyCancel

      Hi Sarah,

      Oh boy….I don’t know what went wrong! This is our favorite pie crust recipe, and as long as you roll the apple in cinnamon & sugar,
      you just can’t go wrong. Think of it this way: You saved yourself lots and lots of calories.

    Can you please tell how can I make eggless version of these cutiesReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 07/16/2012 - 7:12 pm

      Hi Shivani,

      Below is a good recipe for pastry without egg.

      Pastry for Pies and Tarts: (eggless)

      1 cup all-purpose flour
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
      2 to 3 tablespoons cold water

      Mix flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost leaves side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons more water can be added if necessary).
      Gather pastry into a ball. Shape into flattened round on lightly floured surface. Wrap flattened round of pastry in plastic wrap and refrigerate about 45 minutes or until dough is firm and cold, yet pliable. This allows the shortening to become slightly firm, which helps make the baked pastry more flaky. If refrigerated longer, let pastry soften slightly before rolling.

      Roll pastry, using floured rolling pin, into circle 2 inches larger than upside-down 9-inch glass pie plate, or 3 inches larger than 10- or 11-inch tart pan. Fold pastry into fourths; place in pie plate. Unfold and ease into plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side and being careful not to stretch pastry, which will cause it to shrink when baked.

      Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1 inch from rim of pie plate. Fold and roll pastry under, even with plate; flute as desired. Continue with directions in pie recipe.ReplyCancel

2012 New,  Fresh, Uncluttered. Last year brought my family blessings galore and for that . . . I’m very grateful. Two Thousand Eleven didn’t come without any hitches, but as I look around at the sadness and trials that others have faced, I quickly realize that I have nothing to complain about. I’m very thankful […]

    I recently found your blog via Stumble Upon and added you to my google reader right away, and I’m glad I did! Your recipes are awesome! This looks absolutely delicious. I love the idea of adding nuts to a breadcrumb coating for meat or fish.ReplyCancel

  • Lynn - 01/03/2012 - 8:38 pm

    Oh my stars. This looks AWESOME! Thanks for the tip using half soda crackers. Definitely will try that.

    Also….what do you think about using clarified butter? Have you tried that before to make this dish? I used clarified butter for frying all the time, because it doesn’t burn AT ALL! Seriously. Love it. But some people say it changes the flavor or their favorite dishes…so I was wondering what you thought if I just went ahead and used it for this.ReplyCancel

  • Claire @ Claire K Creations - 01/04/2012 - 3:20 pm

    I feel very silly admitting this but I’m still a little bit wary of cooking fish. It always ends up a bit tough. Crumbing it like this looks fabulous – it’s my favourite way to eat fish.ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 01/04/2012 - 3:34 pm

      Hi Claire,
      If the fish is tough, it’s most likely because you have cooked it too long.
      Think about cooking shrimp, if it’s over cooked it get tough and chewy….Halibut and many variety’s will be the same.
      With crumbing Halibut that is about 1/2 thick, it’s most likely done through, when the crumb topping is very golden brown over med. heat.
      I hope this helps….we love this!

    For the lemon butter sauce, does that mean 1 to 1/2 cups of milk or 1 and a half cups of milk?

    Hi!I love it, ingredients in the crunch are excellent for me, I’ll try it. Do I have to use halibut? What else can I have…
    Thank you for sharing your favourite dish:))
    Happy New year to you and your family.ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 01/05/2012 - 3:58 pm

      Hi Sare,

      You could use a variety of fish with the crumb coating. Other fish my include Salmon, Cod or Talapia.

    Could you bake it instead of frying? It looks amazing, cant wait to try it!ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 01/20/2012 - 8:13 am

      Hi Nicole,

      I’ve never baked this particular recipe, but you certainly can bake fish.
      As for preparing, this is what I would do to make Baked Halibut with Panko Crust:
      1. Coat fish in flour seasoned with salt and pepper.
      2.Dredge fish in an egg and water mixture.
      3.Lastly coat in Panko bread crumbs.
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place halibut pieces on well greased baking sheet and lightly sprinkle Olive oil on top of the fish. Bake in oven for 30 minutes.

      This is what I would do if I were going to bake the halibut instead of fry.
      Let us all know how it turns out.

  • Melissa - 01/21/2012 - 1:51 pm

    I tried this and it was delicious- especially the sauce stood out.
    Two days later, I still had a lot of the sauce leftover so I decided to make an experimental mac ‘n cheese and mm! It is honestly the best I’ve ever made.
    I mixed the sauce with fully cooked elbow macaroni and a generous amount of Parmesan, scooped it into a small dish, sprinkled a little more Parmesan, topped it with bread crumbs and pats of butter, and then I just baked at 400 for 5 min!
    Will definitely make again.ReplyCancel

    • Heather - 04/03/2014 - 7:43 pm

      I saw this comment and tried something similar a few months ago. I used the sauce and then sprinkled unused nut mixture on top. It was delicious!
      Tonight I’m going to make the mac and cheese again and try adding some flaked halibut to it.ReplyCancel

  • Kerry - 04/08/2012 - 1:19 pm

    My husband and I have made this recipe SEVERAL times with fresh Haddock or Cod and it’s amazing every.single.time!! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe. I normally have to eat fish with tartar sauce, but this recipe is the first fish recipe where tartar sauce was not needed- I at the fish just as is. We prefer to eat it without the sauce added, but I think that’s just an individual choice for anyone. Thanks again! Having it again this week!ReplyCancel

      This is also a favorite of ours as well. It’s hard to find halibut around here though.
      Sams Club used to be my go-to place, but now they don’t ever have it.
      I’m hoping that they stock it again really soon.

      Hi Amber,

      Yes…I’ve done that as well. When I use whole chicken breasts, I like to flour and season the breast and brown it well on both sides.
      Lay them in your baking dish, sprinkle pieces of broccoli in, and pour the sauce over all.

  • aidee - 11/24/2012 - 5:51 pm

    I made these for a family gathering, and they were so popular I was asked to make 3 for our next dinner. It would take too long to make 3 individual dishes, so can I just double everything to make a bigger dish? If so, should I change the temperature?ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE! - 11/25/2012 - 3:57 pm

      Hi Aidee,

      The recipe posted makes a 9×13 pan of potatoes, so to double it, you would need a very large pan!
      I’ve doubled the recipe several times, but have a super large glass pyrex pan.
      The cooking temperature stays the same, but you most likely will have to cook the pan of potatoes longer,
      so allow for at least 1 1/2 hours to 1 hour 45 minutes baking time.

      JonnaReplyCancel

  • Katy - 03/14/2013 - 9:49 pm

  • Angie - 04/22/2013 - 6:08 pm

    These are fabulous! I used my Veg-O-Matic on the julienne setting to get matchstick size potatoes. My 12 year old son really likes monterey jack cheese, so I used a colby/monterey jack combo and added a little parmesan, too, and moved the pan to the low rack for the last 20 minutes to get the crispy bottom. He’s working on eating the whole pan!ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer A - 07/02/2013 - 11:11 am

    I’m looking forward to making this for 4th of July! Could you clarify the “1 pint whipping cream- 2 cups”? I’m not sure if that means 1 pint less 2 cups or 1 pint/2 cups (as in interchangable).

    Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 07/02/2013 - 5:37 pm

      Hi Jennifer,

      one pint is 2 cups, so use at least 2 cups of cream for a 9×13 pan of potatoes.
      If you use much more, it tends to boil over!

      JonnaReplyCancel

  • Wendy - 03/22/2014 - 9:41 pm

    Hi Jonna, I’ve been following your blog for a while and I love your recipes. Would it work to bake this longer and slower like for about three hours? I’d like to try it for Sunday lunch and I don’t have time bake on my oven. ThanksReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 03/24/2014 - 6:23 pm

      Hi Wendy,

      It’s the high temperature, that makes the cream get thick, and the potatoes get brown.
      I set the timer on my oven when I make these on Sunday. Hopefully that could be a possibility that would work for you as well.
      I’ve really never tried a slower baking time, it would probably work. To get that yummy browned bottom though, you must raise the temp and lower
      the rack for at least 20 to 30 minutes during the end.

      Hope this helps a bit,

      1-2 tablespoons milk
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla
      Mix all ingredients together until the icing is nice & smooth.

  • Michelle May - 09/06/2012 - 5:50 pm

    Two quick questions:
    1) About how long do the rolls take to “double in size?”
    2) When they are covered in plastic to “double” are the rolls left on the countertop at this time or stored in the refrigerator?ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 09/06/2012 - 8:36 pm

      Hi Michelle,

      To double in size, it really depends on the temperature of your house. Don’t rise in the refrigerator, or it will take
      too long. I just cover loosely and put them near a warm window. If you are in a huge hurry, you can also turn your oven on to the lowest
      temp. My oven is 170 degrees. Preheat the oven, then TURN THE OVEN OFF! Then….lay a clean kitchen towel across the rack in your turned off oven. Set the rolls in the center of the oven to rise. Crack the oven door just slightly. Let them raise tip double. Make sure though that you take the rolls and the kitchen towel OUT of the oven before you heat the oven to the proper baking temperature!

      Hope this helps,
      JonnaReplyCancel

    Hello, I have been wanting to make the mini monkey bread for some time. However, I can’t find the Rhodes Bread in Los Angeles area. Do you have a picture of what the bag looks like? I also don’t know which one it is on their website. Also, is there a way you can make this without the corn syrup?ReplyCancel

    • Get Off Your Butt and BAKE - 03/08/2013 - 12:10 pm

      Hi Liza,

      You can google Rhodes rolls, and you will be able to see what their packaging looks like. In a city as large as Log Angeles that is hard to believe!
      Possibly another brand of frozen bread is available…or just make your own bread dough. These little frozen balls of dough are just really convenient!
      You probably could omit the corn syrup Liza. They might not be quite as gooey, but it would probably work fine.

      It’s also warms up great for leftovers as well. When re-heating, don’t microwave it, rather heat it up
      in a 250 degree oven until sauce & chicken are hot. Hope this helps,

    Hi Jonna. I love your site and your wonderful approach to food and family. I have a challenge coming up and I wonder if you could give me any advice. I’m part of a dinner club of 12 people. I need a menu that is gluten free and has no vegetables in the main dish other than onions, garlic and maybe mushrooms if they can be picked out – one of the guys doesn’t eat vegetables!
    It would be great if some of it could be prepared ahead so that I can enjoy my guests when they arrive. Anything come to mind?

    Your photos are killer! I’m DYING for banana bread now. I always think of banana bread as being so unphotogenic but omg, I need a piece of that right now.ReplyCancel

    This bread sounds lovely!ReplyCancel

    I was hit with exactly the same smell the other day when I walked through the door. I try a new banana bread every time in the search for the best ever. I’ll have to add this one to my list to try. It looks delicious. Good idea on the toasted walnuts I don’t usually do that first.ReplyCancel

    Looks almost exactly like my Mom’s version! She uses coconut and cherries as well, it makes a wonderful banana bread!ReplyCancel

Doughnuts . . . oh geez. One of those guilty pleasures. Is there anything better than a warm fried doughnut?   . . .   I just don’t think so.  I’ve made cake doughnuts in the oven before and they’re good . . .but they don’t hold a candle to a just fried, glazed doughnut. […]

    Oh wow they sure look as good as the fried version. I’d love the little holes from the middle covers in cinnamon and sugar. Yum!ReplyCancel

    I just found you…. and I can tell this is going to be another blog that I have a love/hate relationship with! (Love it, but hate that a) I don’t have time to try all of it or b) I’ll weigh 400 lbs if I do! 🙂 Stop by my little blog for a visit…. I love visitors. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Leesa Bates - 11/13/2011 - 12:25 pm

    I just made these for breakfast this morning and other than being a little more dense, they were just as tasty as the fried version. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour instead of all white and they were just fine! Thanks for this “healthier” alternative. Although they were just a wee bit more work than having my husband drive to the donut shop…… 🙂 I’m sure my kiddos will be begging me to make these again…… I probably will! Thanks again!ReplyCancel

  • Samantha - 11/17/2011 - 1:41 pm

    I have to say that I have been truly inspired by your blog for sometime now. I have made the no-bake cheesecake countless times and my father has never let any of it go to waste, not even a single crumb of it. He practically licks the plate clean.
    So when I saw these, I knew immediately that I had to make them ASAP. Now, my father has just bought me a new car and I think that a round of these doughnuts would be the perfect thank you for him.
    So in turn, I wanted to say thank you to you. Your blog is much appreciated.

    I have been looking for a glazed donut recipe ever since I bought my donut pan! These look delicious! Did you alter the posted recipe to use a donut pan? If so, what were the steps? Thank you!!ReplyCancel

  • Carol - 10/20/2011 - 8:39 am

    I just left a comment on the Rhodes website for ya…..these are the cutest creepy crawlers…….and I know my 2 grandsons are gonna have lots of fun making these!

    My favorite cookbook? ohhhhhhhh boy……….with over 500 in my possession that’s a hard one. I would have to say the one I love and reach for most is one that my daughter and I put together for our church-it’s full of tried and true recipes from friends and family-some no longer with us. That makes it even more of a treasure to me.

    Off to VOTE!

    So darn cute! And creepy. lol My favorite cookbook right now is Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfield. I have 2 small ones and getting them to eat all of their veggies can be tough. It’s been great sneeking in purees and them not even knowing it.ReplyCancel

    Seriously, I love your blog! You have amazing recipes and always make it look so easy. I usually shy away from things like this but reading your blog gets me excited and it’s much more fun sharing this with my son too.
