How to Make Easter Bread with Rhodes Rolls

1. Thaw the bread dough.

I let my loaves thaw in the refrigerator overnight. I put them in at 10pm and pulled them out around 2pm the next day, and they were perfect. Side note: I pulled out four loaves (pictured), but I ended up only using three.

2. Slice the dough lengthwise into three strips.
