Cheesy Garlic Bread Swirls
Our Best Bites" and came across these really yummy looking rolls. They turned out amazing! (That last link for the rolls has step by step pictures of what you are doing!)
They have a cheesy filling that melts in your mouth as soon as you bite into them! Or have fun unrolling them and have cheesy deliciousness in every bite!
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 1/2 c. warm water
1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
4-5 1/2 c. flour
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 egg yolk
1/2 c. (1 stick) of real butter, no substitutions
1 1/2 Tbsp. garlic bread seasoning
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Combine yeast, water, and sugar in large mixing bowl and allow to stand 10 minutes or until bubbly. Add salt, vegetable oil, and egg yolk and combine. Add 3 c. flour and mix well until combined. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough that barely sticks to your finger. Knead, either by hand or in mixer for another 2-3 minutes. Cover and allow to rise 1 hour.
While dough is rising, combine butter and garlic bread seasoning. Set aside.
Roll your rough into a rectangle that’s about 18-20 inches by 6 inches. Smear garlic butter over the entire surface of the dough and then sprinkle with cheese.
Roll up jelly-roll style and then use dental floss to cut into 12 equal slices. Place each slice in a muffin tin. Cover with a clean cloth. Preheat oven to 350 and allow rolls to rise while the oven is heating.
You’re going to need to keep a CLOSE eye on these puppies during the last 10 minutes or so–once you notice the cheese getting brown, place a sheet of aluminum foil over the rolls (you don’t need to press it down or anything, just lay it on top). This will keep the cheese from burning, although it will get pretty brown on top. It’s okay, though, because the insides are still all ooey-gooey.
**Randi's Side Notes**
~ Something these awesome woman suggested, which I had never thought of doing before, was when you are rolling out your dough...instead of flouring down your surface and adding lots more flour to it simply spray your surface with cooking spray. It worked amazing.
~ When you are combining the butter and the garlic bread sprinkle make sure to not melt the butter. You want it to be able to smear on the bread. I had melted mine and wasn't able to use some of it cuz it was sliding off the dough. So I used it on the side to butter after they came out of the oven.
**Be sure to check out Our Best Bites. It is one of my favorite food blogs. They have some of the most amazing looking food on there. I loved the blog so much I ordered their brand new cookbook online at Deseret Book. I LOVE IT! If your looking for a new cookbook, this is an awesome one.
