I promised Paul I’d make homemade dinner rolls again this week that we could eat with the left over Tortellini Meatball Soup. Since the soup has such a great Parmesan Cheese flavor I was thinking in the order of making rolls that I could put cheese in. I’ve never added cheese to yeast rolls before so this was new to me. I found this recipe on Taste Of Home, I knew it was going to be good! The recipe only takes minutes to put together, the first rise time is only 10 minutes, after that the rolls are shaped and rise again, then baked. It was exactly what I needed, an easy flavorful dinner roll.
Since I was putting a great cheese flavor inside the rolls, why not put a great flavor on top of the rolls? After the rolls were baked I buttered the tops, the jar of minced garlic I keep in the fridge made it easy for me to add a touch of garlic to the top of each buttered roll. They went back into the oven for about 5 minutes.
They were absolutely delicious! The rolls are soft, the Parmesan flavor was mild and the garlic on top added just a touch more flavor to these already fantastic rolls. I hope you love them as much as we did, ENJOY!
