Savory Cheese Rolls
Looking for a cheap and delicious recipe to try for this weekend's big game? Or how about something a little different to serve with a hot bowl of soup? My sister told me they make something like these cheese rolls at her high school, so I thought I'd give it a whirl and I'll tell you, they are really yummy. The dough is pillowy soft and the cheese gets all crusty and cooked....ah, I'm drooling.
The recipe is:
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
1 1/4 cup warm milk
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons yeast
Prepare the dough by mixing in the bread machine or KitchenAid and let raise to double.
Roll dough into a big rectangle, just like you would for cinnamon rolls. Spread softened (not melted) butter over all the dough. (I didn't in the picture....didn't realize I was out when I started making them. The finished rolls were not as good as normal without the butter, so make sure you add it!) Sprinkle with cheese and seasonings... any kind will do. I used mozzarella, garlic powder and italian seasoning.
Starting at the long end of the rectangle, roll tightly just like when you make cinnamon rolls.
Cut into slices and raise for 20 minutes or so. Bake at 350 until golden brown and bubbly.
And just FYI, this is one of the things we had at our SuperBowl party LAST year. This year we're making Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn, Jalepeno Poppers, In-N-Out Copycat Burgers, Cream Cheese Stuffed Pretzels and 7-Layer Dip. And no, I'm NOT making that all myself. We're partying with two other families and have divided up the dishes. Can't wait! I could care less about football, but I love any excuse for a party!
