Cheese Stuffed Dinner Rolls

Cheese Stuffed Dinner Rolls

Extremely tasty, warm and comforting recipe for Cheese Stuffed Dinner Rolls. You will love these soft, garlicky and cheesy bread bombs.

Cheese Stuffed Dinner Rolls

If you love soft dinner rolls than you will adore these beauties with cheese, brushed with butter, garlic and herbs.

From time to time my kids would request with the addition of pepperoni or make them like pizza rolls.

What can I say? I just love making them happy.

Basically this is my all-purpose dough. I have tested so many baked goodies using this dough that I can’t even tell you.

We are talking from savoury rolls, pizza, pizza rolls, different types of twist bread and so forth.

As we are all aware that I am not some kind of amazing cake baker, but when it comes to baked goodies I fully stand by my recipes made with dough. Proudly!

Cheese Stuffed Dinner Rolls

Well, my husband and daughter devoured this tray of rolls while watching football. I mean those two love anything carblicious as well as with cheese.

They kept dipping in the delicious marinara sauce. While I almost cried watching them, because following a low carb lifestyle sometimes sucks.

Especially when you not only love carbs but make them all the freaking time.

However, in my opinion, it is all in moderation as well as balance.

Anyhow, I have been making these for years. Also, I enjoyed them many time myself so that’s why I fully recommend making these fluffy rolls.

Tasty, warm and easy recipe for Cheese Stuffed Dinner Rolls

Ingredients

  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 pack active dry yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup of whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 1 pack mozzarella string cheese cut into 2-inch cylinders
  • 1/2 package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup garlic and herb butter for brushing
  • Or use unsalted butter with 1 teaspoon garlic powder + 1 tablespoon dried parsley

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the flour and salt, mix it, then add dried yeast and sugar.
  2. Add melted butter, and warm to touch milk. Start kneading at medium speed until the dough is formed and pulling away from the side of the bowl.
  3. Cover and allow the dough to rise for about 60 minutes, but you can let it rise to up to 3 hours.
  4. Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on a countertop or any work area such as a clean cutting board.
  5. Divide the dough in half then into quarters. Divide each quarter into 8 equal size balls.
  6. Stretch each bowl and add a generous amount of room temperature cream cheese and about 1/2 stick of sliced string cheese.
  7. Pull the dough around the cheese to form a ball then pinch the dough tightly so that the cheese doesn’t melt out during baking. 
  8. Place the rolls on a parchment-lined baking pan or non-stick pan and make sure they are about 1/2 inch apart. Cover and let rise for about 30 additional minutes. Brush with melted garlic and herbs butter, or you could make your own (step 10.)
  9. Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
  10. Melt more garlic and herb butter, or you may add one teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of dried parsley to melted unsalted butter and brush on these golden rolls as soon as they are out of the oven.
  11. If you are planning to serve them later, just reheat it for 30 seconds and serve.

Notes

You may use other cheese such as Mild Cheddar, Cheese Cubes, Swiss, Provolone, etc.

You do not have to use cream cheese, but my family loves it so much so that's why I add to my rolls.

Caramelized Onion Tart Recipe

If you want to churn your recipe up to the next level, I encourage you to use Minerva tasty butter to make my Caramelized Onion Tart.

My family sincerely loved this caramelized onion tart with delicious creme fraiche.

As one would expect, we made many delicious and easy dishes using Minerva Dairy Butter;

Such as silky, soft and creamy scrambled eggs, sauteed Lyonnaise Potatoes, which I will share a recipe soon with you all, rich and lush spinach, and so forth.

Caramelized Onion Tart

However, so far this tart has been such a genuine masterpiece. I absolutely love serving it with lemon chicken or my famous pork schnitzels.

Therefore, I would not only recommend this butter for sauteing but for baking and just spreading on your morning toast as well. This butter is a real jam. Lusciously delicious! Best butter that you will ever put in your mouth.

Caramelized Onion Tart

Minerva Dairy, America’s oldest family-owned creamery, just re-vamped their brand and packaging this year in honor of their 125th anniversary. I partnered with them to celebrate this special anniversary.

125th Birthday? Wow! Can you even imagine? Alright folks, let’s churn this thing up.

I brainstormed quite a few recipes using this amazing butter as they sent me three kinds; unsalted, sea salt and with garlic and herbs.

Don’t you just love butter with 85% butterfat and high-quality? You cannot possibly ask for more.

Also, its made by 6 generations of Butter Makers and made from pasture-raised cow milk. Again, yes, indeed they are America’s oldest family-owned creamery. That is why this butter is creamy heaven.

It also reminds me of my childhood, and I will tell you a tiny fact about me. One of my absolute favorite treats growing up was butter and a drizzle of pure homemade honey from my neighbors.

Caramelized Onion Tart Recipe

I would enjoy this every single day either after school or on weekends when I played all day outside. Till this day, not even one decadent dessert would replace a freshly baked bread with butter and a drizzle of honey.

Those memories I treasure and cherish and on occasion celebrate by eating my favorite treats.

If you want to churn your recipe up to the next level, I encourage you to use Minerva tasty butter to make my Caramelized Onion Tart recipe. It’s easy, tasty and a perfect appetizer for entertaining.

Ingredients

  • 2 Sheets Puff Pastry
  • 2 pounds Onions, sliced into thicker rings, preferably Vidalia Onions
  • 3 tablespoons Minerva Dairy Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 Springs of Fresh Thyme, plus for garnish
  • 4 tablespoons Creme Fraiche

Instructions

Caramelized Onions:

  1. Melt the butter, then add oil in a large skillet. Add thick onion slices and turn the heat to medium. stir to coat for a bit and do not touch it until you see the onion changing color from the bottom. You can check by flipping one or two after 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. This is the beginning of caramelization. I do not add sugar, but I use sweet yellow onions which will give you an excellent caramelization of onions.
  3. Now, add the thyme, salt, and ground black pepper to the skillet and stir. Turn the heat to medium-low heat until the onions are completely translucent and caramelized. It will take around 30 to 40 minutes depending on your stove, skillet, etc. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Assembly:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (190C)
  2. Thaw your frozen puff pastry, preferably in the fridge, overnight.
  3. Unfold your pastry only when fully thawed.
  4. Flour your work surface and your rolling pin. Use restraint with your rolling pin and just slightly roll. Use a fork and make small punching holes all around the bottom of the puff pastry.
  5. Add Creme Fraiche on the top of the pastry then slightly fold ends of the pastry, as shown on the pic. If you do not have Creme Fraiche, check notes below.
  6. As you see on step by step instructions make sure the pastry has four edges in order to hold the onions. You may make it as traditionally rectangular or bake in the circular baking tart pan.
  7. Bake between 15 and 17 minutes, depending on your oven. The pastry needs to be golden.
  8. Take it out and allow it to cool down for a minute or two before slicing.

Notes

Easy Creme Fraiche Substitute:

  • Mix 1 cup heavy cream and 1/4 cup whole milk sour cream together.
  • I like mixing it n the jar or a container with a fitted lid, but you can pour the mixture into a jar as well, cover and let stand in a warm place for about 8 hours.
  • Then stir and refrigerate for 24 hours before serving.
