Cottage Cheese Caraway Rolls

"I wanted a tender roll that was solid enough to hold up as a sandwich roll. This seemed to fit the bill for me. The cottage cheese makes them nice and moist. They were perfect for cold roast pork sandwiches! The dough is a bit sticky when you work with it, but I think that's the secret to the texture. I mixed the ingredients in my food processor, then finished kneading by hand."

  • Cut yeast and butter into flour, salt and sugar just as if you were making a pastry crust.
  • Blend in cottage cheese and eggs. (This is probably easier in a food processor or with a mixer). Gradually add the milk until the dough forms into a ball.
  • When the dough has come together, take it out of the bowl and finish kneading by hand. Add the caraway seeds so they distribute through the dough as you knead. It will be slightly sticky, but that's okay.
  • Put the dough into a lightly oiled or buttered bowl, cover with plastic or a damp towel and put in a warm place to rise.
  • After the dough has doubled in size, punch down and form into balls: I got a dozen large rolls from this recipe.
  • Put the rolls on baking sheets, cover with a damp towel and let rise until almost double in size.
  • Bake in a 375 degree oven until brown. 15 - 20 minutes.Tapping one on the bottom with your finger should give you a slightly "hollow" sound.

  1. We made these with the addition of some minced Vidalia onion and they were fantastic! Definitely a keeper!


<img src=""> I'm a writer who relocated from Los Angeles to a small village in the south of France at the beginning of 2005. I started a blog called Possumworld about our experience when we moved, and the first year of that turned into a book called OVER HERE: An American Expat in the South of France. Since what we usually write are comics, animation, science fiction and translations of obscure French 19th and early 20th Century pulp fiction, it was a bit of a different genre for me. I suppose for anyone who loves cooking, living in France is a bit like living in the food capital of the world. As a city girl, living rural France is an eye-opener in many ways. It's unusual to be this close to the source of your food when you've only ever seen it in gleaming rows in a supermarket. Many times I'm asked whether I don't miss life in Los Angeles and whether I'm happy here. I always look at people in wonder, because now, I can't imagine living anywhere else.
