parmesan bread rolls

Soft and fluffy bread rolls flavoured with parmesan, butter and garlic. These parmesan bread rolls are simply perfect!

How amazing do these bread rolls look? They’re everything bread should be: soft and fluffy, flavoursome and helplessly moreish. (They’re also something terrible for your waistline but I won’t go there.) Butter and parmesan cheese are always a good mix for your tastebuds, are they not? Add garlic, and you’ve got the perfect bread roll recipe.

What I like about this recipe is that the bread rolls don’t have to be exactly the same size. No measuring or weighing to get the same amounts of dough for each roll. Having the rolls different sizes adds a nice touch to the dish and makes it look more rustic. I like rustic. Rustic means being lazy and not having equal roll sizes.

Just make sure you really coat the dough well with the butter, garlic and parmesan cheese as that’s where they get their flavour from. You know the saying: the more, the merrier.

Parmesan Bread Rolls
Makes 20-25 rolls

1¼ cups warm water
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp oil
3-4 cups plain flour
1 tsp salt
2¼ teaspoons instant yeast
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup very finely shredded Parmesan cheese

Mix the water, oil, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes or until foamy.
Add the salt and slowly add the flour, mixing the dough as you do so. Knead by hand for 5-7 minutes.
Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover with towel and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled.
Cut dough into 20-25 pieces.
Mix melted butter and minced garlic. Dip dough in butter mixture, roll in parmesan and drop into a greased 9x13” glass pan.
Repeat until all dough is in pan.
Let rise, covered with a cloth, until doubled.
Bake at 180C for 15 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
