Blue Ribbon Recipe

These rolls are fantabulous... In fact they almost didn't make it to the table - We kept eating them straight from the oven!

Ingredients For gruyere rolls

  • 3 c
    all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 pkg
    rapid-rise yeast
  • 3 c
    shredded gruyere cheese
  • 1 1/2 tsp
  • 1/4 tsp
  • 1 1/4 c
  • melted butter, optional

How To Make gruyere rolls

  • 1
    Combine 2 3/4 cups of the flour, the yeast and next 3 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Heat the water until very warm (about 120 to 130 degrees F). Gradually add the water to the flour mixture, beating at high speed with an electric mixer until combined. Beat 2 more minutes at medium speed. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • 2
    Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes). Place in a well greased bowl, turning to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees F), free from drafts, one hour or until doubled in bulk.
  • 3
    Punch the dough down; turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly 4 or 5 times. Divide the dough in half. Shape each portion into 8 balls; roll each ball in flour.

    Place rolls 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the rolls in the oven; spray rolls lightly with water. Bake for 5 minutes, spraying after 3 minutes without removing rolls from oven. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F; continue to bake, without spraying, 13 minutes, or until rolls are golden. Brush with melted butter, if desired.
