Flavorful Herb Dinner Rolls



Dinner Rolls are such a good addition to a meal... and these are even more special because of the extra flavors of cheese and herbs.







You can start with any basic bread recipe... this is the one I use:
Basic Homemade Bread Recipe



To this recipe, add the following ingredients, before mixing it all up:
3 T Powdered Cheddar Cheese
1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp dried dill weed
1/4 tsp dried thyme
After it has risen the first time, it is ready to use.


Form into balls... large or small, depending on the size rolls you want, and put them into a greased 9" x 13" baking pan.  Top each with some butter and sprinkle an herb seasoning over the top of all of them.











 This is the seasoning I make and use:
Grind Your Own Seasoning Easily

Also, sprinkle parmesan cheese over the tops of all of them. 


Time to let them raise.....
 The butter is already starting to melt on the warm dough... and the herbs look wonderful on there.

After they have raised enough, then 
bake at 400 degrees for about 25-30 minutes.


 Cover with a cloth as soon as you take them out of the oven... this helps to keep them nice and soft.


Wonderful with butter melting inside... 

They are browned nicely... and they smell wonderful!  :)



We had these wonderful herb rolls with this meal..... asparagus with cheese, baked sweet potatoes and cole slaw. Marinated chicken goes nicely with this meal also.

  1. Your rolls look simply amazing! I am planning to grow my own herbs this summer, and will add your recipe to my file. It is amazing how versatile your roll recipe is! I currently make a lot of sourdough and occasionally will make regular yeast dough. Have you ever worked with sourdough?

    Have a blessed Monday!

    1. I have worked with sourdough and we love it.... but I don't have any going right now... I got tired of having it set on my counter(I have very little counter or cupboard space in my kitchen)... and we stopped, but we do need to start again. I love the versatility also... so fun to be creative with it. :)

  4. What a wonderful place you have here!
    Your rolls are just beautiful,I can smell the aroma as I write this. :-)
    Such a great idea adding the herbs. Bread is one of my favorite gods, but unfortunately I am not able to have it.
    I look forward to visiting you again.
    Have a beautiful day.

    1. Thank you for such a sweet comment. I am so sorry to hear that you cannot have breads... I have to limit them, but not totally stay away... that would be hard to do. Thank you for visiting and I look forward to your future visits. :)

    1. I didn't think that sounded right, but I know some people talk that way... I am SO GLAD you wrote to correct it! :) That automatic speller can be a bit of a frustration sometimes. I am really glad bread is a favorite FOOD and not a god! :) Your comments have made me smile. :)

  9. I miss a great piece of warm yeasty bread, or roll, or pastry! Since going gluten free this is the only thing that I have not found a replacement for. One of these days I am going to delve into gluten free flours and figure it out, there is just so many ingredients needed to replace flour. These look fantastic. UG! I want one!

    1. Oh, that has to be hard... gluten free does not sound fun. I hope you figure out a good substitute so you can enjoy rolls/breads again. :)

    1. I bought it at the Amish store. I do not think it is very healthy for us(actually I KNOW it isn't!), but it sure tasted good. I also make the herb dinner rolls without the powdered cheese and they still taste great. :)
