Description

Browned blue cheese on a crusty top. Crispy, chewy bottom. Soft, slightly chewy inside, with flavorful, yummy onions.

This is one of the older recipes in my arsenal, and I love it so much.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 whole Large Yellow Onion, Sliced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1-½ cup Warm Water
  • 3 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 cups Bread Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt (more To Taste)
  • Freshly Chopped Rosemary To Taste (Be Generous!)
  • ½ cups Crumbled Blue Cheese

Preparation

Saute sliced onions and minced garlic in 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook them until brown and caramelized, about 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes.

Pour warm water into a bowl. Sprinkle yeast on top. Add sugar and olive oil, then stir gently with a fork until combined. Set aside.

Combine flour and salt in a separate bowl. Add to the flour mixture your onions, and rosemary in alternating ingredients, stirring gently until dough is combined. (It’ll be sticky!)

Generously flour a flat surface. Knead dough 15 to 20 times, adding flour generously to make it easier to handle. (Keep it sticky, though!)

Drizzle olive oil in a separate bowl, then add your ball of dough, turning to coat. Cover with a tea towel and place in a warm spot for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Divide dough into eight portions, and form each into a rough round shape. Place on a baking mat or parchment paper, then cover with a towel and allow to rise for 15 to 20 minutes.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until brown. Brush with butter halfway through baking time.

To top with blue cheese, either place crumbled blue cheese on completely baked rolls and allow it to soften naturally, OR remove the rolls with five minutes baking time left, top with cheese, and return to the oven to finish baking and allow cheese to melt.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Divine!

These were absolutely delicious. I just discovered this recipe and I’ve made them two days in a row because the first batch disappeared too fast! Two thumbs up.

Yum! I loved these rolls, although admittedly they don’t have great staying power if you live in a more humid climate since the onions tend to continue sweating after baking is over (I blame South Carolina, not the bread!). I may try to top them with cheddar or asiago next time, since my husband isn’t a big blue cheese fan. Still, I thought they were fantastic! Thank you!
