I made these rolls from my Aunt Ethel's recipe. The tomato herb filling rises and spills over the top of the crusty roll tops. Folks have a hard time eating just one.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, oil, salt and 2-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.

  3. Meanwhile, in a skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add tomato, tomato sauce, garlic, salt, basil and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened. Cool to 110°-115°.
  4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 12 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place 3 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Make an indention in center of each ball; add 1 tablespoon of filling. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes.
  5. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
