Easy Cheesy Pull-apart rolls - #BreadBakers

Say Cheese, a phrase used by many photographers to make their subject smile, laugh, make them look happy in the photo. I wonder, how they made up this phrase. May be universally cheese brings a huge smile on everyone's face. What not to love about cheese, gooey, melty, richy, silky, smooth, i can go on listing all adjectives here, i love a good cheese sandwich anyday, infact i can eat cheese slice as such when i m hungry and looking for a healthy snack.  Cheese is considered a good source of protein and fat for many calorie conscious eaters, including myself. I cannot stand protein powders, so i include atleast 4 slices of cheddar in my daily meals.
So, when Sue Lau of Palatable pastime asked us to make a cheesy bread, i immediately joined the list to bake this cheesy pullapart rolls. This is a simple roll, i have added grated cheddar to the flour and stuffed the rolls with mozarella. A perfect dinner time recipe, serve this rolls with some warm soup, i bet you will be baking more. 
I have kept the spices simple, just garlic and mixed herbs, you can add your own spices, make it indian with some cumin and ajwain or add some kasuri methi/dried fenugreek leaves to make it more aromatic. 
Since both my kiddos are at home, enjoying their spring break and constantly hungry for something new to eat, I made these rolls for their evening snack. The rolls vanished in minutes and i was happy, that  i clicked some pictures before i served them.

Ingredients
146 grams(approximately 1 cup) of whole wheat flour
1 tbsp vital wheat gluten/1/4 cup mashed potato (see notes)
10 grams of butter
1/2 tsp instant yeast
1/2 tsp salt
125ml water
2 cloves of garlic, grated fine
1/4 tsp mixed herbs
50 grams cheddar cheese
50 grams of mozarella cheese,cut into small cubes
2 tbsp milk mixed with 1 tbsp oil

Notes:
If using mashed potato in place of vital wheat gluten, you might have to reduce the liquid quantity. Check this Savory buns recipe for better idea

Method
  • Take flour, yeast, gluten and salt together in a bowl and whisk well to combine. To this flour mix add mixed herbs and grated garlic and mix well into the flour. 
  • Grate the cheddar cheese block using a fine grater and and add it to the flour and mix roughly. To this flour-cheese mix . 
  • In a microwave safe mug, take water and microwave it for 30-40 seconds. The water should be hot, but not scalding hot. To this hot water add the butter and give it a stir. Add this water to the flour mix in batches  and mix to form a wet dough.
  • Do not add all the water at one time, i was left with 2 tbsp of water, so depending upon the flour you are using you might need all of it or just the same as mine. 
  • Once you got a wet dough, take the dough on to your work surface/kneading surface and knead to form a soft dough. Sprinkle little flour if needed, do not add more flour. Once you get a smooth dough, grease a bowl with oil and let the dough rest for 40 minutes or until it doubles in size.
  • Once it doubles up, punch down the air, knead the dough couple of times. At this stage, i weighed the dough and got around 327grams of dough. 
  • I divided the dough into 8 portions. Knead each portion of the dough once, flatten it in your palms, insert a cube of mozarella cheese, pull the dough to the cover the cheese and form a ball. Repeat the same with the rest of the dough pieces. 
  • Arrange the dough balls in a greased baking sheet and the let them rest for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180C,brush the rolls with milk-oil mix and bake them in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until the top turns golden brown.
  • Once done, remove the tray from the oven, let it sit in the tray for few minutes. Then slowly remove it on to a cooling rack to cool off completely. 
  • While serving, microwave them for 10-20 seconds for the cheese to turn gooey. Serve the rolls along with some soup for dinner or just with some ketchup as a snack.
