No-knead Cheddar and Chive Rolls

                Here is a super easy recipe that requires zero kneading! You can add in whatever type of cheese you want,leave out the dried chives if you don't want them..maybe you want crumbled up cooked bacon with mozzarella? Actually that sounds really good and I think I will be making that version next time with pizza seasonings tossed into the mix.

The rolls freeze well so bake up a batch of these babies and be a hero at dinner time!

No-knead Cheddar and Chive Rolls

4-1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
1 TBS Sugar
1 TBS Salt..or less if you want
2 TBS Dried Chives;optional
2-1/4 tsp. Active Dry Yeast
2 cups Milk..low fat,full make the call
1 TBS Butter
2 cups (8 ounces) Shredded Cheddar Cheese

In a large bowl,combine 2 cups of flour,sugar,salt,chives,and yeast. In a saucepan,heat milk and butter to 115-120F. Pour over dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in cheese and enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 45 mins-1 hour. Dough will soft and that is ok!

Grease either 2 or 3 9 inch round cake pans with non stick spray and set aside. Gently deflate the dough and divide into 2 or 3 portions and shape each portion into 12 balls. Place into prepared pans. Cover with a tea towel and allow to rise until nearly doubled,about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350/180. Brush the tops with milk or an egg wash if you prefer and bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.

** I only have two,9 inch round cake pans so I divided the dough to fit into those. You can make smaller rolls and pop them into 3 if you prefer. It's up to you**

Yield: 26-36 rolls
