So, I want to share another idea that would be perfect to share with your family this weekend. I wanted to make some dinner rolls for this Sunday and then I had an epiphany…stuff it with cheese! My sister and I have the same philosophy: “Everything is better with cheese!” The rolls came out perfectly with surprise cheese center, fresh rosemary and coarse salt for additional flavors.

I can’t wait to share the rolls with everyone this Sunday.  Actually, I am most excited about the egg hunt for the kids. I just love to see how much fun they have. Little man already had an Easter egg hunt at school last week and he was so excited that I can’t wait to see his face light up again. That was him at school egg hunt, they also made bunny hats…so cute!!

I chose to put the few rolls that cracked in the front for the picture. Mainly because they look so delicious with cheese oozing out and nicely browned. Yes, I did pull off all that cheese and ate it, it’s my favorite part!

Homemade Cheesy Dinner Rolls
  • (Makes 24 rolls)
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 2 packets active dry yeast, (1/4 ounce each)
  • 1½ cups warm whole milk
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1½ tbs salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 5 to 5½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 8 oz Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbs fresh minced rosemary
  • 2 tbs coarse salt
  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine water and yeast. Mix it together and let it stand until it blooms. It will take about five minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk milk, butter, eggs, salt and sugar together until all incorporated.
  3. Add the egg mixture into the yeast mixture and whisk it together.
  4. Whisk in the flour one cut at a time. I whisked in the first 3-4 cups and then use the hook attachment on my mixer to mix in the remaining flour.
  5. Keep mixing until the all is combine. Take the dough out and knead it for a few second. Grease a large bowl and place the dough in it. Cover the bowl with a saran wrap (leaving a teeny tiny crack.) Set aside in a warm place and let it rise for about an hour.
  6. Take out the dough and roll it in a long roll, about 3 inches thick. Cut it in about ¾ inch thick circles.
  7. (Preheat the oven to 375 and grease the baking pans.)
  8. Cut the cheese in 24 cubes. Place the cheese cube in the center of the dough circle. Bring the edges together and seal it up. Place the roll in a greased baking pan, seam down. Repeat with the remaining dough and cheese.
  9. Brush the rolls with egg white and sprinkle with rosemary and coarse salt.
  10. Bake at 375 for 13-15 minutes, until golden brown.
