Becky Jensen


1 T. yeast
1 c. warm water
1 T. sugar
1 tsp. salt
4-5 c. flour
3 T. vegetable oil
Garlic Butter:
c. (1 stick) of real butter, no substitutions
1 T. garlic bread seasoning**
Shredded mozzarella cheese

Garlic Bread Seasoning Recipe:
c. powdered Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. Kosher salt
2 T. garlic powder
2 tsp. Oregano
2 tsp. Basil
2 tsp. Marjoram
2 tsp. parsley

Combine yeast, water, and sugar in large mixing bowl and allow to stand 10 minutes or until bubbly. Add salt, vegetable oil, and egg yolk and combine. Add 3 c. flour and mix well until combined. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough that barely sticks to your finger. Knead, either by hand or in mixer for another 2-3 minutes. Cover and allow to rise 1 hour.
While dough is rising, combine butter and garlic bread seasoning. Set aside.
Nowheres a little trick Ive been using a lot lately. I really, really hate cleaning up flour on my work surface after Ive been working with dough, but I obviously have to use SOMETHING to keep it from sticking. If you spray a little non-stick cooking spray on your work surface and your rolling pin, your dough wont stick and clean-up is super easy!
Anyway, roll your rough into a rectangle thats about 18-20 inches by 6 inches. Smear garlic butter over the entire surface of the dough and then sprinkle with cheese.
Roll up jelly-roll style and then use dental floss to cut into 12 equal slices. Of course, I kind of forgot to take pictures of this whole process, but if what Im saying makes no sense, check out the orange roll recipe to see what Im talking about. Place each slice in a muffin tin. Cover with a clean cloth. Preheat oven to 350 and allow rolls to rise while the oven is heating.
When the oven is ready, bake for 18-22 minutes.
Youre going to need to keep a CLOSE eye on these puppies during the last 10 minutes or soonce you notice the cheese getting brown, place a sheet of aluminum foil over the rolls (you dont need to press it down or anything, just lay it on top). This will keep the cheese from burning, although it will get pretty brown on top. Its okay, though, because the insides are still all ooey-gooey.
