Ingredients

Dinner Rolls

  • 1 package (2-1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110F)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon roasted garlic, finely minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

Topping

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon roasted garlic, finely minced
  • 1/3 cup grated Asiago cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Dinner Rolls

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand 5 minutes until foamy. Add honey, melted, butter, egg, and garlic mixing on low speed until smooth. Add salt, cornmeal, and 3-1/2 cups flour to bowl and increase speed to medium until dough pulls away from sides of bowl, adding more flour if necessary.
  • Knead dough on medium speed 4-5 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Remove from bowl and form into a ball. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • Punch dough down and remove from bowl. Divide into 12 equal pieces and roll each portion into a smooth ball. Place dinner rolls in a greased 9x13 baking pan and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until rolls are doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake rolls at 375F 20-25 minutes or until a deep golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside for a moment.

Topping

  • In a small bowl, whisk melted butter and roasted garlic. Brush over rolls and top with Asiago cheese and ground black pepper. Broil rolls under high heat 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned. Cool rolls 10 minutes then serve warm. Enjoy!
