  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (about 110°F)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite melting cheese)
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Optional: herbs or spices of your choice (such as garlic powder, dried oregano, or red pepper flakes)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Mix well to evenly distribute the ingredients.
  2. Add the warm water and olive oil to the dry ingredients. Stir until a rough dough forms.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes, or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  5. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and divide it into 8 equal portions.
  6. Roll each portion of dough into a ball, then flatten it into a circle about 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Place a tablespoon of shredded cheese in the center of each dough circle.
  8. Fold the edges of the dough over the cheese, pinching them together to seal and form a ball.
  9. Place the cheese-filled dough balls seam-side down on a greased baking sheet, leaving some space between each roll.
  10. Cover the rolls with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  11. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  12. Brush the tops of the rolls with the beaten egg wash.
  13. Optional: Sprinkle the rolls with herbs or spices of your choice for extra flavor.
  14. Bake the cheese bread rolls in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  15. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy warm!

These cheese bread rolls are best served fresh from the oven, but you can also store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Simply reheat them in the oven or microwave before serving.
