Asiago Dinner Rolls

I first tasted these rolls when my boyfriend made them from a family recipe that called for Parmesan. I substituted Asiago for the Parmesan with equally good results. —Bethany Shaw, Mokena, Illinois
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    1-1/2 dozen


  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3-3/4 to 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese, divided


  • In a large bowl, mix sugar, yeast, garlic salt, Italian seasoning and 2 cups flour. In a small saucepan, heat milk, water and 2 tablespoons butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Add egg; beat 2 minutes longer. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 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 30 minutes.
  • Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide and shape into 18 balls. Roll each into a 12-in. rope; tie into a loose knot. Tuck ends under. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Melt remaining butter; brush over rolls. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, rotating pans halfway through baking. Remove from pans to wire racks; serve warm.

    Mine turns out little bit like cookie texture, though..It is not bad but not so good neither. I follow everything what it says on recipe. It doubled size when I put dough warm I don't know what is wrong .

    I followed the directions to a T, withbthe exception of accidently mixing in the entire 3/4 c. of asiago cheese into the dough mix. My family loved them, excellent dinner rolls!

    I can not even begin to tell you how yummy these rolls are. I did add a bit more of the asiago cheese to the dough. I also did not have garlic salt so I used garlic powder and regular salt, 2 tsp. each.
