Asiago & Roasted Garlic Rolls

These high-rising buns are filled with flavor from tangy Asiago cheese and sweet baked garlic.


Psyllium and pectin are added to the flour mixture to help improve the texture and strength of the dough. You can add 1 tsp pectin (or gelatin powder) and/or 1 ¼ tsp psyllium powder in with the dry ingredients of any bread recipe.AsiagoGarlicRolls2

Allow the yeast 10 minutes to ‘proof’, then combine with the remaining wet ingredients.AsiagoGarlicRolls3

Blend in the baked garlic, cheese and rosemary, mixing until smooth.AsiagoGarlicRolls4

Spoon dough into a well greased muffin tin, smoothing tops with wetted fingers. This dough is firm enough to shape into balls by hand – just make sure hands are well wetted to prevent dough from sticking. Spray lightly with cooking oil, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes.AsiagoGarlicRolls5

Bake in oven until golden brown, and internal temperature of 204°F is reached. See how much they rose, beautiful!AsiagoGarlicRolls7

      It is a hard white cheese, similar to Parmesan (which can be used in its place).

    Any substitute for psyllium powder? It gives some people gas.

      No substitution needed as its small volume does not contribute to the overall success of the dough. Psyllium powder is added to improve the dough’s structure (which benefits its texture and ultimately, its taste), but you can omit it completely. Have a great day!
