Garlic & Cheese Pinwheel Rolls

So it’s official…. Chris claims this is his new favourite bread recipe lol.  He thoroughly enjoyed them.  I don’t take his “favourite” very seriously because he also have numerous favourite meals and I think every Nascar track is also his favourite.  Either way, these are a delicious take on bread making!



Here are the ingredients.


I began a basic bread recipe by adding the water, yeast and sugar to the bowl of my stand mixer and letting it stand about 5 minutes or so until the yeast started to foam.


Next I added the olive oil, salt and egg and mixed it up. I just used a whisk in the bowl at this point.


Then added the flour, until a slightly sticky dough formed coming away from the sides of the bowl.



I covered the bowl with a towel and let it stand in a warm place for an hour until it had doubled in size.


I rolled it out on a floured surface to form a rectangle, about 10x 12 inches.


I spread the melted butter mixed with garlic powder evenly to coat entire surface of rectangle.


Sprinkled it with parmesan…


And then 1 cup of grated cheese and sprinkled it with the first amount of Italian seasoning.


Rolled it up jelly roll style as if I was making cinnamon rolls.


Cut it into 12 pieces, brushed it with the remaining butter/garlic mixture and sprinkled the second amounts of parmesan, grated cheese and Italian seasoning before letting them rise for another 20 minutes in a warm place.


And then baked them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until they were golden brown and cooked through.


And then served them with a sheet pan chicken dinner!
