How to Make Whole Wheat Cottage Cheese Dinner Rolls


  1. In a mixing bowl add 1/2 cup flour, yeast and 1/2 cup lukewarm water. Stir and let few minutes until the mixtures gets a spongy consistency and bubbles appear at the surface.
  2. Add the cottage cheese, 4 tbsp melted butter and salt.
  3. Slowly add the remaining 3 cups of flour.
  4. Depending on how wet/dry is your cottage cheese you may have to add some more water until the dough comes clean from the sides of the bowl and is elastic.
  5. Take the dough out of the mixing bowl and place it in a greased bowl. Leave to rest until double in volume.
  6. When the dough is risen, divide it into 16 small balls.
  7. Arrange them in a baking dish. (I like to use a cast iron pan when baking mine)
  8. Leave to rise again for about 20 minutes.
  9. Meanwhile heat the oven to 400 F.
  10. Bake the dinner rolls for 20-25 minutes (if using a cast iron bake for 20 minutes) or until light brown and the smell of fresh baked bread takes over your kitchen.
  11. As soon as you take them out of the oven, brush the dinner rolls with melted butter and enjoy!
