Easy Cheese-Garlic Rolls

READY IN: 1hr 55mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I make this recipe using my Kittencal's Cheddar Loaves or Buns but omit adding in the extra cheese into the dough, your own bread recipe will do fine or use a 1-pound frozen bread dough, thawed and at room temperature. These rolls dissappear before I even get them to the table lol! You can adjust the amount of garlic, we are garlic-lover's so I use lots!

Very good and great with lasagna. We used the frozen bread dough for very easy and quick rolls. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 7 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 14-13 cup finely chopped fresh garlic (or to taste)
  • 2 -3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 (1 lb) thawed frozen white bread dough (or use your favorite recipe)
  • 12 cup shredded old cheddar cheese
  • 3 -5 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 14-13 cup grated cheddar cheese (for the tops)


  1. In a small bowl mix together softened butter with fresh garlic and 2-3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese.
  2. On a lightly floured surface pat, roll or stretch the dough into about a 12 x 16-inch rectangle (does not have to measure exactly, if the dough springs back let rest a couple of minutes, then continue to shape the dough).
  3. Spread the butter/garlic mixture evenly over the top of the dough, then sprinkle about 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese.
  4. From the 16-inch edge, roll up the dough tightly as possible to enclose the filling.
  5. Slice the dough crosswise into 16 equal-size rolls.
  6. Place the cut side of the dough into a buttered 13 x 9-inch baking dish (preferably dark metal, but glass will do!) spacing the dough.
  7. Cover the baking pan with a clean tea towel, then allow the dough to rise in a warm place for about 25-30 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle the tops of the dough with about 3-5 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese.
  9. Set oven to 375 degrees.
  10. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until golden, sprinkling about 1/4 to 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese on the last 5-7 minutes of baking.
  11. Using a wide spatula lift out the rolls from the pan and serve warm.
  12. Delicious.
