Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: A favorite (at least in our home) dinner roll is given a savory boost with the addition of garlic, bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, and garden-fresh green onions. These rolls are the perfect accompaniment to add a little zesty pizzazz to a mild dinner, or to complement a savory Mediterranean or spicy Tex-Mex dinner entree.
