Chive Garden Rolls

I never seem to have enough of these light, flavorful rolls on hand. Folks like the subtle taste of the chives.—Joanie C. Elbourn, Gardner, Massachusetts
  • Total Time
    Prep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 15 min.
  • Makes
    about 1 dozen


  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup fat-free cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2-3/4 to 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped


  • In a bowl, combine the egg, cottage cheese, oil, honey and salt. Dissolve yeast in warm water; add to egg mixture. Add wheat germ and 1-1/2 cups flour. Mix on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add chives and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down; roll out to 3/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 3-in. round cutter. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Brush tops with egg and sprinkle with onion. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.
