Cheddar/Squash Cloverleaf Rolls Recipe

Meet the Cook: My rolls started out as a basic bread recipe. I just adapted it to our taste. They're great with a meal anytime, but especially in fall. Our son-in-law (we have two grown children) can't stand squash - he loves these, though! -DeDe Waldmann, Monona, Wisconsin

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in water. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and stir gently. Let stand until light and foamy. Stir in milk, 3 tablespoons butter, salt, squash and cheese. Add enough flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until the dough is no longer sticky, about 5 minutes. Form into a ball and place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, lightly grease 24 muffin cups. Punch down dough. Break off small portions and roll into 1-in. balls. Put three balls into each cup. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Brush tops of rolls with remaining butter; sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Bake at 375° for 16-18 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 18, 2013 Edited Dec. 27, 2013

"I have made this many times. I microwave winter squash until soft and use this plus very sharp, good cheddar. The rolls are a beautiful color. They freeze and reheat well."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 11, 2013

"Used frozen&thawed pumpkin puree from our pumpkins, a mixed blend of shredded cheeses, and half whole wheat flour. Cooked for 28 minutes as pan rolls in a 9x13 glass pan. Turned out nicely, but were much better warm than cold."
