Mini Egg Salad Sandwiches
with Rhodes Multi-Grain Rolls

It's a rare day for me to buy, let alone heartily recommend, a commercial food product. But since discovering these small multi-grain rolls from Rhodes, I'm hooked! Look for them in the freezer section, yes, they're Bake and Serve rolls! (Please know, this is NOT a sponsored post.)

Mini Egg Salad Sandwiches with Rhodes Multi-Grain Rolls

It was a lucky break, checking the frozen seafood section for lobster tails. Nope, no lobster tails, no hoped-for affordable lobster.

But right next door was a shelf of Rhodes frozen breads. My mother used to swear by Rhodes frozen bread loaves – a coup given that Mom was one of the world’s best bread bakers.

What caught my eye, however, was a tray of nine small multi-grain rolls. I walked through my mental gauntlet.

Price? Check. The price was right, $2.29, just $.25 a roll.

Ingredient list? Check. It starts off with stone-ground whole wheat flour and unbleached white flour. Sugar is the fourth ingredient (and the rolls do have a certain sweetness), but that’s followed by sunflower seeds, flax seeds and millet.

Reasonable calories? Check.

NUTRITION ESTIMATE (How many calories in Rhodes Multi-Grain Rolls? How many Weight Watchers points in Rhodes Multi-Grain Rolls?) Per Roll: 80 Calories; 2g Tot Fat; 0g Sat Fat; 0mg Cholesterol; 95mg Sodium; 12g Carb; 1g Fiber; 2g Sugar; 3g Protein; Weight Watchers Old Points 1.5, PointsPlus 2

Convenience? Triple Check. Just throw the tray of still-frozen rolls into a hot oven. Twenty minutes later? Done. Hot rolls for dinner.

Taste? Could frozen rolls taste good? I have to say, I think the taste and texture are excellent. There’s that slightly nutty edge that comes with whole-grain bread.

Sold! I’ve bought the rolls three times now and plan to keep a tray or two in the freezer all the time. They were a huge hit at my book club last week, stuffed with egg salad for three-bite but still-hearty sandwiches.

Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Time to table: 30 minutes
Makes 9 small but substantial sandwiches
  • 1 tray Rhodes Multi-Grain Rolls or another small roll
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs (how to make Perfect Hard-Cooked Eggs every time)
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sweet relish, liquid drained off
  • 1 teaspoon good mustard
  • 2 tablespoons grated Swiss or mozzarella cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry

ROLLS Bake the rolls according to package instructions. Let cool, then slice in half and separate the individual rolls.

EGG SALAD Meanwhile, with a fork, mash the egg salad ingredients.

SANDWICHES Spread a spoonful of the egg salad mixture onto the bottom half of a roll, top with lettuce, then close with the top half of the roll.

ALANNA’s TIPS These sandwiches can be made ahead of time. Just cover and refrigerate. I was surprised that even two days later, the leftover sandwiches were still quite fresh. So long as the sandwiches can be kept chilled, they’d be great for picnics, road trips, etc. For planning purposes, allow about one cooked egg for two people.

  1. Alanna, what grocery store did you find these in? I'd love to stock up on some bread rolls for quick dinners- thanks for the idea.

  2. Nupur - I've found them at Schnucks, so easy to find!

    I made the Rainbow Chicken (twice) in on week (so good) my question is, how could we make it in the slow cooker? I don't want the oven on in the summer...thanks Bonita

  4. I think all my sisters buy those whole wheat Rhodes rolls, even the ones who often make homemade bread!
