Cheese-Filled Garlic Rolls Recipe

To change up plain old dinner rolls, I added mozzarella. Now my family wants them at every gathering. I don't mind, even in a time crunch. — Rosalie Fittery, Philadelphia, PA
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 24 cubes part-skim mozzarella cheese (3/4 inch each), about 10 ounces
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese


  • 1. Divide dough into 24 portions. Shape each portion around a cheese cube to cover completely; pinch to seal. Place each roll in a greased muffin cup, seam side down. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°.
  • 2. In a small bowl, mix butter, parsley, garlic, Italian seasoning and pepper flakes. Brush over rolls; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 3. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pans. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.

"These rolls are amazing. I always get compliments on them every time I make them. Tonight I will be making them for guests. I will double the recipe and only put cheese in half of them for those who don't want the cheese."
