Recipe: Cheddar Cheese Dinner Rolls

We love this Cheddar Cheese Dinner Rolls recipe, great for the holidays! Bet you can’t eat just one! They bake up perfectly every time.

24 dinner rolls

1 1/2 cups milk
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for brushing
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 (1/4 ounce) packet active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 tsp salt
6 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
flake salt for topping

In a small sauce pan, bring the milk to a simmer over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat, stir in the butter and sugar. Let cool.
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Let that sit until foamy, about 5 minutes.
In a mixer fitted with the dough hook, add the milk mixture, eggs, yeast mixture, cheese, salt and 3 cups of the flour. Mix until smooth. Add the remaining 3 cups of flour, 1/2 cup at a time. Mix until a smooth ball of dough forms.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes. Butter or oil a large bowl, add the dough. Cover and let it rise in a warm place for 60-70 minutes, until doubled in size.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and punch it down. Cut into 24 two inch pieces. Roll into balls. Place the dough balls onto 2 parchment or silicone lined baking sheets. Cover and let rise for an additional 30-40 minutes.
While they are rising, preheat the oven to 350˚
Brush the risen rolls with some melted butter and top each with some flake salt. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm with softened butter.
