Garlic Cheddar Swirl Buns
Yield: makes 12 rolls
 
Ingredients
Dough:
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¼ cup salted butter
  • 3¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 egg
Filling:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1½- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5-7 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • freshly ground black pepper and sea salt
Instructions
  1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in butter; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2¼ cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt; whisk together. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; beat well with an electric mixer. Add the remaining flour, ½ cup at a time, using a wooden spoon to stir well after each addition. (dough will be too thick and sticky to use the mixers at this point.)
  3. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. (dough will spring back when lightly pressed.)
  4. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a 12x9 inch rectangle. (use your 9x13 baking dish as a guide.) Spread the butter evenly along the full surface of the dough.
  6. Evenly spread the garlic into the butter and add the cheese into an even layer. Sprinkle with fresh pepper and sea salt. Roll up dough and pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal size rolls and place in a 9x13 baking dish
  7. Cover and let the rolls rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until browned. Serve warm.
