There is something about warm bread that comforts body and soul, and frozen French Bread Dough makes it easy to enjoy anytime.  With proof-and-bake ease, the dough can be pulled from the freezer for a fresh loaf at dinner, but it can also be used in a variety of recipes. Why not make something unexpected so that you’re ready when family and friends come visiting for the holidays.


This party bread wreath will go fast, so be proactive and prepare more than one. You can be creative and add your own delectable fillings. Then wait for the “mmmms” you’ll hear when your family and friends enjoy your custom masterpieces.  They’ll come back for more, we promise!


We did say, “creative.” AP’s frozen French Bread dough is so versatile. Our Butterscotch Sticky Bread recipe will be sure to satisfy even the pickiest sweet tooth. It’s delectably sticky, a cinch to make, and a delicious addition to a Sunday brunch–or a kid-friendly breakfast.


For more sweetness, try our Apple Cinnamon French Bread. Apples and cinnamon are the peanut butter and jelly of the baking world. Use these two perfect companions to make this mouthwatering sweet french bread. From sweet to savory, from breadsticks to garlic toast to cinnamon braids—the recipe variations are endless with this product!

Party Bread Wreath
  1. Roll the loaf into a 20-inch rope.
  2. Form the rope into a circle and place it in a bundt pan for that pretty, round shape.
  3. Let the dough rise to double its size.
  4. Remove the wrap and bake at 350°F for about 20-25 minutes. You want to see a nice, golden color.
  5. When the loaf has cooled, make gentle cuts across and lengthwise; careful not to cut through the bottom crust.
  6. Place the loaf on a non-stick baking sheet and insert the slices of ham, or bacon, and cheese in between the cuts.
  7. Sprinkle in the green pepper. Bake for 5-10 more minutes until the cheese is melted.
  8. Serve with Lip-Smackin’ Chipotle Ranch dip.
Butterscotch Sticky Bread

  5. Place half of the pieces of butter around the dough and sprinkle half the dry ingredients (and nuts, if desired) over that layer.
  6. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Let stand for 10 minutes after baking.
  9. Flip pan over onto a large plate to serve.
Apple Cinnamon French Bread
