Dinner Rolls in the Shape of a Turkey

Look at these adorable Turkey Dinner Rolls!!! These only take a few simple ingredients and will surely be a dinner conversation piece!

2 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls or 2 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
1 egg , beaten
sliced almonds, slivered almonds, chopped pecans, pepper corns

Flatten one roll for the body and place on a large sprayed baking sheet.

Cut a narrow piece out of the remaining roll to be used as a head and neck. Roll it into a rope shape and place on one side of body to form a slight curve. Cut head piece on an angle and pull down against neck to form a wattle.
Flatten the rest of the roll into a half circle. Cut about ten long slits to form feathers. Place on body opposite head and neck. Brush with egg.
Place peppercorn on head for eye and push a slivered almond into the head for a beak. Decorate body and tail with nuts as desired.
Let rise 15-30 minutes. Bake at 350°F 15 minutes or until golden brown. And enjoy!!!
