Cheese Stuffed Crescent Rolls as Healthy Super Bowl Snack

What else you could wish than melting cheese inside a steaming pastry filling up the kitchen?

Cheese-stuffed-crescent-roll-13-SunCakeMomChoosing between cheese scones and crescent rolls is a really a taxing decision. Which one should be brought to a deserted island?  Luckily you can’t go wrong with any of it but still having both at the same time is the best solution you can pick.

To be honest these rolls are filled with cheese so they just couldn’t survive an island trip. They hardly survive the trip to the dinning table but that’s for a different reason. It doesn’t matter how much is baked, surely nothing will be left on the plate by the end of the day. Especially not when there is a game going on TV. It’s worth to mention that this probably isn’t the healthiest super bowl recipe ever but definitely one of the tastiest. Especially if you plan to wash it down with a bottle of beer

Ingredients:

Dough:

  • 0.5 oz / 15g Fresh yeast
  • 1/2 cup / 100ml Lukewarm milk or water
  • 5 cup / 600g Flour
  • 10 tablespoon / 150g Butter
  • 4 oz / 125g Plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs

Filling:

  • 2 oz / 50g Grated cheese (Gouda, Edam)

Topping:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½ teaspoon Salt

And here’s how you make cheese dinner rolls to get your family and yourself the perfect snack of any day:

1. Sprinkle and stir the yeast into the lukewarm milk or water in a cup. Set it aside and let rest. If it gets foamy don’t worry it’s completely normal.
2. Whilst you are waiting, measure and put the flour, butter, yogurt and eggs  in a large bowl. When it’s ready, pour in yeast mixture too. Make the dough.
3. After you finished with kneading it, you don’t need to wait for it to raise.
4. Divide the dough into 4 balls, set them somewhere warm cover 3 and you can start working with the fourth straight away.
5. Put the ball in the middle of the desk and roll it flat into a shape of a circle.Rolling out - Cheese stuffed crescent rolls - SunCakeMom
