Potato Sourdough Cheese Rolls

One of my favorite things to make with my Momma's Potato Sourdough starter is these amazing Cheese Rolls. They are soft and warm and have melted cheese in the middle. 
Be still my heart. 
Carb Heaven. 

Today I'm featuring these cheese rolls from heaven. If you missed how to make the starter for this dough go here.

When you are ready to make your bread pull your starter out and in a large bowl combine the following:

1/3 c sugar
1 Tbs salt
1 c starter
1/3 c corn oil
1 1/2 c warm water
6 c bread flour
1 tsp (heaping) yeast

This will make your dough. You want to beat it with the dough hook attachment until the bowl is clean as shown below. You may have to add a little more water. You are looking for the dough to be soft and pliable, but sticking to itself. You don't want it stuck all over the hook or the mixing bowl.

Cover the dough and let it rise. It should double in size. I use a large bowl with a little olive oil in the bottom. I covered it with a slightly damp light cloth and stuck it in my oven.

Once your dough has risen ( maybe about 1-2 hours. It should double in size) You can roll it out. You are going to eventually end up with a log, so try and make a large rectangle like shape.  Dump any type of shredded cheese you like all over the rolled out dough.

Roll it up like this and then cut it into about 1 inch thick slices. 

The cheese should be in the center of the roll. To make them round and puffy on the top instead of flat like a cinnamon roll take the rolls and bend and roll as follows. 

Place the rolls in a lightly greased muffin tin. Let them rise again until they have cuffed up and fill the muffin tin and go over a little.
Sprinkle some additional cheese on top, then bake them until the cheese on top is golden. About 20-30 minutes at 350 F.

Enjoy warm with your favorite dinner. Or just by themselves slathered in butter. Don't forget to share. I know it's hard.

  1. What a great way to get two completely different tastes from one batch of dough! Breakfast and dinner, check!
