I couldn't find Pepperidge Farm Party Rolls, so I googled them to see the ounce count, hoping I could come close....believe it or not, their website doesn't give that, just a number of rolls! So I had to guess. I chose to pick a higher quality roll and then provide my own foil pan. For future recipe reviewers...pick a roll that is shallow...nothing that is over an inch and a half. The marinade doesn't cover more than that, so the bottom half is amazingly potent and delicious, while the upper half isn't. I poked holes in the tops of my rolls with a toothpick, hoping for a better outcome :) However, I have to say that the extremely potent portion of my roll was "tres excellente",...although a little strong. I'll try this again with shorter rolls! Thanks for sharing!
