These little rolls have to be served warm, so the cheese inside each is soft and melty. Yum.
INGREDIENTS | YIELDS 24 ROLLS
- 1 recipe Refrigerator Rolls
- ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
- 24 (½-inch) cubes Cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup butter, melted
Prepare Refrigerator Rolls and chill the dough for at least 2 hours.
When ready to eat, grease 24 muffin cups with unsalted butter. Mix Parmesan cheese and basil on shallow plate.
Divide dough into 24 balls. Press a cube of Cheddar cheese into the center of each ball. Dip tops in melted butter, then dip into Parmesan mixture.
Place in prepared muffin cups, buttered side up, cover, and let rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake rolls for 12–16 minutes until golden brown. Remove from cups immediately; let cool on wire rack. Serve warm.
Make the dough ahead of time, then have your guests have the fun of forming the rolls while the main entrée is cooking. The house will fill with wonderful aromas, and the “chore” is a great ice breaker for a party of relative strangers.
