Gourmet 3 Cheese Bread Rolls

Gourmet 3 Cheese Bread Rolls

I have finally lifted my jack and made something with yeast ! Yes, yeast which I am so afraid of using as I tried something many years ago, and let’s just say, it did not turn out very nice, definitely not edible and the oven was a mess.

And I did not start off with just anything, but made these awesome Gourmet 3 Cheese Bread Rolls, which has a lot more than only cheeses packed into them.

I did not do the actual kneading myself, Roy did – that’s what husbands are for right ? Anyhow, he does most of the cooking and baking of whatever you see on the blog nowadays, with me measuring ingredients, giving orders – nicely of course, and I do the final touches ending with taking photos.

Some time ago, actually a long time ago, I mentioned that I have a bread making machine, which used to be my late Dad’s. I could never get myself to use it since he passed away in 2008, but when I wanted to make these Bread Rolls I got the machine out, all fired up to use it… but, one problem, the little paddle thingy {not sure what it’s called} has mysteriously disappeared and I know for a fact that it was inside the machine, together with the little recipe book. Right, I was totally mad, but had no other choice than kneading manually {which Roy did, anyways}

We enjoyed these delicious Rolls with a simple Potato and Leek soup and had the leftovers the following day for breakfast – warmed them up a bit, with a tiny slap of butter.

Feel free to play around with the different cheeses or cheeses which you like. I had bits of leftovers of the Cheddar, Parmesan and Mozzarella in the refrigerator.

12 Servings


7 cups White Bread Flour
2 t Salt
10g Sachet Instant Dried Yeast
2 TB Olive Oil
2 1/2 cups Lukewarm Water
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated
6 Slices Black Forest Ham, shredded  {or Prosciutto}
1 cup Fresh Basil Leaves, torn
8 Sundried Tomatoes in Oil, drained and chopped


1.) Combine the Flour, Salt and Yeast in a large mixing bowl – mix together the Oil and Water – gradually mix into the dry ingredients to create a soft dough {add more Water if necessary} – place dough on a floured surface and knead about 5 minutes until elastic – place in an oiled bowl and cover with cling wrap – let rise in a warm place to double the size.
2.) Knock down the dough and add all the remaining ingredients – knead until smooth and all the ingredients are completely mixed through.
3.) Divide the dough in 12 equal pieces – shape into balls – place on a lined baking sheet and cover loosely with cling wrap – let rise another 30 minutes.
4.) While the Bread Rolls are rising, you can pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) – once risen, remove the cling wrap and bake 30 – 35 minutes or until golden and done.

Serve as you wish.
