Cheese is glorious, as is bread. So marrying the two seems so natural doesn’t it? These rolls should be served warm, fresh from the oven, so that you can really enjoy their ooey-gooeyness. So yes, it will require a little timing on your part, but they’re worth it, believe me!
I originally came across this recipe on Pinterest. That led me to Yammie’s Noshery where I found these – Peeta’s Stuffed Cheese Buns inspired by the Hunger Games.
The fact that the recipe already had garlic powder in it inspired me to use one of my favorite garlic cheeses. You can use mozzarella like they did at Yammie’s if you like. In fact, any melty cheese will do, so adapt as you see fit. I’ll be honest though, when this dough was rising I really was concerned about the amount of garlic powder. The aroma was overpowering. But, after they baked it ended up being the perfect amount.
After the dough has risen, punch it down and separate it into 18 equal pieces. I find it easiest to use a kitchen scale for this task!
Next, you’ll wrap your cubed cheese inside each piece of dough.
Then top with some thin slices of the same cheese and bake. Yum!
If you are making these for your family’s dinner, I suggest cutting the recipe in half. I made the entire batch and even with each of us enjoying two each, we still had leftovers. They are still tasty afterward, but the cheese isn’t melty anymore and even heating them up wasn’t the same.
These were a huge hit, especially with the teenagers. There’s something about gooey cheese that teens love, or at least mine do anyway! Hope you try them, they are delicious!
