Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough to 1¼ in. thick; fold dough in half. Repeat patting and folding once more. Using your hands, shape dough into a 5×6½-in. rectangle about 1½ in. thick. Cut dough into six portions.
Place dough portions 1 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush tops with the melted butter. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool slightly. Prepare Sausage Gravy.
