Cheddar-Knot Rolls

HTML tutorial

Really spontaneous!
Following yeast cravings!
One of the nicest dough to work with! As pliable as it could be :)
Here with cheddar but it can be any other cheese you can think of… Next time I’ll add some mixed herbs too, just to make the rolls even more flavoursome… and maybe some chopped fried onion? :)
Later on in the evening it came to my mind that these rolls can go nicely with Polish borscht too (that’s a traditional beetroot soup, really really really yummy :))
So, this time, not a really sweet recipe :) But hey, it’s still about baking, isn’t it? :)
A Spicy Perspective was my inspiration. The Knots you can find there look so delicious that I’ll surely make the bacon version too!

Dough Ingredients (gives 10 medium-size rolls):

  • 4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-3 Tbs sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 25g butter
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese
  • pinch of mixed herbs (optional)

Mix flour with yeast and salt.
Leave aside.

Heat up water with milk and sugar till the last is dissolved.

Pour the dry ingredients with warm (not hot!!!) liquid and start kneading the dough.

Whisk the egg and add it to the mass.
Kneading is still on ;)
Knead till the dough becomes a bit less hand-sticky.

Add grated cheese and the herbs and go on with kneading.

Melt the butter and add it to the mass.
Knead it in thoroughly till the dough gets pliable.

Again, I have to admit that working with this dough is a pure pleasure :)

Leave the dough aside for growing for about 1,5h.

Line the form with bakery paper.

Once the dough doubles its size, knead it again shortly.
Form 10 small balls from the dough and roll each piece of the dough using your hands till it’s about 20 cm long.
Tie the dough into a loose knots and place them on the bakery paper.

Leave again for about 20 minutes for rising :)

Bake at 200°C for about 20-30 minutes.
I baked them for 30 minutes but it’s good to check a bit earlier if there is no burning in the oven going on :)

Chill ajar for a moment and them place them on a cooling rack :)
