Quick Cheesy Yeast Rolls

Hello hello!

If you don’t know this already, I love bread. Carbs, really, but bread in particular. I had a hankering for some rolls last week, and decided to whip up these quick yeast rolls, adapted from a recipe over at Crazy for Crust. These came together in about an hour, not 45 minutes, since I let them rest for a little longer, and they took longer to bake than expected, but still wayyyy less time than normal yeast breads, which usually take 2-3 hours. This recipe is super easy, especially with a stand mixer. You could probably do it without, it just might take a while longer to knead. I halved the recipe, since I knew if I made a full one, I would end up eating a full recipe all by myself. No good. I also had a little leftover Parmesan Asiago Romano cheese blend from a recipe I made earlier in the week, so I decided, why not throw that in too? The results were a lovely savory bread roll. The interior is soft and fluffy and moist, and the outside is perfectly crispy. Delicious! Here’s the recipe!

Quick Cheesy Yeast Rolls

adapted from Crazy for Crust

Makes 6 rolls


1/2 cup warm water, 110-115˚F

1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active rise yeast

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp granulated

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese blend


In the bowl of a stand mixer, combie the water, yeast, olive oil, and sugar, and allow to rest for about 15 minutes, until foamy. With a dough hook, stir in the flour and salt until the dough comes together.

Place dough on a cutting board and slice into 6 even portions. Roll in a ball and place in a greased 8×8 pan. Allow to sit in a warm place for about 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400˚F while the rolls rest. Once they have risen, bake for 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool slightly, then serve warm. Enjoy!



This is what the foamy yeast mixture looks like.





As you can see, they don’t rise too much, but they rise more while baking




Mmmm, look at that lovely, crispy cheesy topping!


Nice, fluffy insides!




I can’t get over how wonderfully dense, and yet still fluffy these rolls are! So good!
