Cheese Garlic Dinner Buns

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Being frugal when I realized I had one cup of cottage cheese left in the refrigerator, I decided to use it up. And what better than to play around with that little dinner bun recipe I enjoy so much and see what might come from that. Since I love the combination of cheese and garlic together I decided to make those little buns a bit more festive, yet still, keep it them easy to make.

A definite plus for those busy days.

Garlic Cheese Dinner Buns, easy batter recipe, no kneading.

Cheese and Garlic Dinner Buns
350-degree oven for baking
adapted from: Cottage Cheese Dinner Buns

1/4 c warm water
1/4 c sugar
1 pkg (scant T) yeast
1 c warmed cottage cheese
1 t garlic salt
1/4 t baking soda
1 egg
1 c shredded cheese, I had a cheese blend on hand, but use what you have
1/2 c parsley leaves (about 12 stems) washed, plucked and rolled in a towel to dry
 2 1/4 c flour, you may use up to an additional 1/4 c if needed - for a total of 2 1/2 cups

additional cheese for tops, if desired

In a large mixer bowl, combine water, yeast, and sugar, let sit until yeast is active and foamy. Add remaining ingredients, beat well (a stand mixer is best for this recipe, it is a sticky dough that will climb the beaters on a hand-held mixer) 2-3 minutes. Scrape beaters, and sides of the bowl sending dough to the bottom of the bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise 1 hour.

Stir down dough, divide into 12 prepared muffin cups. Cover and let rise 30 minutes, or until doubled. Sprinkle with the additional cheese.

If ready to bake preheat the oven and bake 22-28 minutes or until done and golden brown. If desired, oil tops (if not using the cheese), cover loosely with wax paper and then a towel and place in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator while preheating the oven, when ready to bake.

  1. Those cheesy rolls look good. I can almost smell them from here.

  2. Thanks, they were tasty! The garlic is very gentle, and adds nicely to the whole flavor. I love that these only take about 5 minutes in hands on time. I took half the batch over to share with my sister and her hubby.

  3. Yum. And, thanks for the great list! Great roundup!

  4. Yum!! Those look really good! I've been craving all sorts of bread lately!! I'll have to add it to the list! :)
