Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 Rhodes frozen rolls, texas, thawed but still cold
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. Cut 1 roll in half. Shape one piece into a short 5-inch rope for the body. Place on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Save remaining half.
  2. For large back wings, shape 2 rolls into large teardrop shapes. Place beside lower half of body. Cut 1 roll in half and form 2 smaller teardrops for front wings. Place beside upper body.
  3. With remaining 1 and ½ roll, form 2 flat tear drop shapes, 2 flat circles, 2 flat triangles, 1 thin small rope and 2 small balls. Arrange shapes on wings. Bend rope into a ā€œVā€ and place above head. Press balls into head for eyes.
  4. Brush with melted butter, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise about 45 minutes or til doubled.
  5. Brush with 1 egg beaten with 1 Tbl. water.
  6. Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes or til golden. Let cool and slice horizontally. Fill with you favorite sandwich fillings. Tuna or chicken salad, or lunchmeats and cheeses!
  7. *I didn't think the shapes/decorations on the wings worked out all that well. Next time I think I'll make small ropes and shape/roll them into palmier shapes to decorate the wings, so you might want to try that, too. But it still came out nice! My mom LOVED it! :).
