I wanted something different from garlic toast, so I made a dough with garlic and onions. The next thing I knew, I’d created an amazing dinner roll. —Brenda Caughell, Durham, North Carolina

  1. In a small bowl, mix onion and water. Let stand 10 minutes or until onion is softened. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
  2. In a large bowl, combine milk, wheat germ, oil, honey, garlic powder, salt, onion mixture, yeast mixture and 1-1/2 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough (dough will be sticky).
  3. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide and shape into 20 balls. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Cover with a kitchen towel; let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 45 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush rolls with butter; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5-7 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and rolls are golden brown. If desired, sprinkle with parsley. Serve warm. Yield: 20 rolls.
