Dill Cottage Cheese Rolls
Many folks shy away from cottage cheese because of its odd texture, but these dill cottage cheese rolls use the cottage cheese for moisture and the tangy flavor it provides. These rolls also use dill and a bit of onion to add plenty of savory flavor to the rolls, and their freeform shape makes them perfect for first-time roll bakers who may be nervous about shaping perfectly taut balls of dough.
Salted Rye Rolls
Rye bread can often taste rather sweet, which is why these rolls get an extra sprinkle of kosher salt before heading into the oven. These salted rye rolls have two proofs that are about an hour-long each, so be sure to start these ahead of time in the afternoon to give every step plenty of time. Though the recipe calls for kosher salt to sprinkle on top of the rolls, you could also use a flaky sea salt like Maldon for a little extra flair.
Rosemary Garlic Dinner Rolls
This recipe produces pillowy, flavorful rolls that make the perfect sidekick to any soup, stew, or saucy meal. These rolls also proof twice, but only for 20 minutes each time, so they’re a little quicker to make on a weeknight. Don’t worry though, that doesn’t mean that these rolls lack any flavor – in addition to the perfect yeasty roll flavor, these rolls benefit from having rosemary and garlic baked in and being brushed with melted butter and rosemary right before they hit the oven. Looking for a variation on these rolls? Try the herbed garlic parmesan version!
