Whole Wheat Cottage Cheese Rolls

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by MechanicalJen

I love to bake bread, but it seems like I have bad luck with it looking/tasting presentable. These look respectable and have just the slightest hint of sweetness. Found this recipe in "Prize Winning Recipes". Since I'm cooking only for myself, I make a batch and stick them in the freezer, thaw one every time I eat a bowl of soup. Wonderful!

I'm afraid I found these rolls a little bland, perhaps the addition of some seeds next time will liven them up a bit. I also didn't have great success with reproving the dough from frozen. They are, however, light and fluffy for wholewheat rolls, so worth a tweak or two. Thank you.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, combine 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour, yeast, brown sugar, salt, and baking soda. Mix well.
  2. In saucepan, heat water, cottage cheese, and butter until warm (butter does not need to melt).
  3. Remove from heat and add eggs to the liquid mixture.
  4. Combine dry and wet ingredients, blend at low speed until moistened, beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
  5. By hand, gradually add all of the whole-wheat flour and enough of the all purpose to make a firm, non-sticky dough.
  6. Knead until smooth and elastic - 5 minutes or so.
  7. Place in greased bowl, flipping to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled. This takes roughly an hour.
  8. Punch down dough and divide into 24 pieces. Form these into balls and place in greased muffin cups.
  9. Cover and let rise until doubled, another 45 minutes.
  10. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 for 12-15 minutes.
