Light and delicious. Use any cheese or combo. I used Fiesta Blend: Monterey Jack, Cheddar Queso, and Asadero. From William Sonoma THE BREAD MACHINE cookbook with some changes by me.

These are amazing! I adjusted the recipe for 3 pans versus the two it originally called for, then made 12 large rolls in a 13 x 9 pan. They were soooo big, moist, and fluffy and wonderful. I used a colby jack combo and the whole family loved them. Thanks for a winner!

I made this recipe with my KA stand mixer instead of a bread machine, using buttermilk in place of milk, and increased all ingredients including the yeast to 1 tablespoon, I used grated cheddar cheese, and they turned out really good, this is a really great recipe, thanks Caroline!...Kitten:)

I thought that this would be better than it actually was. I am a pretty good baker, but I couldn't get this to look good or brown in the oven. The taste wasn't bad but this recipe just isn't among those I would make again, and my husband agrees. Sorry!
