How to Make Mozzarella Dill Rolls


  1. Make the Yeast: Combine the yeast, sugar, and warm water in a small mixing bowl. Set aside for ten minutes at room temperature to allow the yeast to proof. You should see bubbles forming at the surface
  2. Make the Dough: Whisk the flour and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer. Attach the dough hook and slowly add the yeast mixture to the flour, followed by the milk,cheese and egg, 1 tablespoon of melted butter and 2 tablespoons of dill. Mix on medium speed for 7 minutes -- dough should release from the side of the bowl and come together. Knead dough lightly with your hands. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap or a towel and place in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes. (Tip: turn oven to "warm" or lowest setting for 10 minutes. Turn off. Place dough in oven with a towel on top of bowl. Let rise.) 30-45 mins
  3. While the bread is rising, stir two tablespoons of dill into melted butter. Set aside.
  4. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet and alllow the dough to rise in a warm place for 20 minutes. Brush the bread again with the dill butter and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for approximately 12 minutes, brushing twice throughout the baking with the remaining two tablespoons of melted butter. (should feel very soft and springy when done.)
  5. Serve while warm !
