Cheddar Pan Rolls

These rolls are tender, flaky and oh, so good! I always make a big batch of these because we love them so much and we like to have the leftovers with breakfast, lunch or as snacks over the course of a few days. But you could easily halve the recipe if you'd like.

Cheddar Pan Rolls
  • 4-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 T. sugar
  • 1 T. salt
  • 1 T. active dry yeast
  • 2 t. garlic powder
  • 1/8 t. cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 T. butter or margarine
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 T. margarine or butter, melted
1. Combine 2 cups of the flour, sugar, salt, yeast, garlic powder and cayenne pepper in a large bowl.

2. In a small saucepan, combine the milk and butter or margarine. Heat over low heat, stirring often, until butter is completely melted. Do NOT boil.

3. Pour milk/butter combo into the large bowl and mix well. Work in all of the remaining flour. Dough will be sticky. With your hands, mix the cheese into the dough just until combined. Do not knead. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
4. Grease 3 8 or 9 inch cake pans and/or pie plates. Roll the dough into 36 golf ball-sized balls and place 12 in each greased pan. Cover and let rise again, at least 45 minutes.

5. Just before baking, melt 2 T. butter or margarine and brush over rolls. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.If you make the full batch and cannot finish them all within a few days, the rolls freeze really well too.

I'm so glad I found your site today! As a Southern boy, biscuits are always god, but look even better with cheddar cheese!

I cook dinner every single night - and I know how it's often a juggle - I'm loving your site. Count me a fan!
