Cheese Garlic Dinner Buns

Happy Wednesday, before we wander take a look here......

I had one cup of cottage cheese to use up and thought that I should play around with that little dinner bun recipe and see what might come from that. I love the combination of cheese and garlic and decided to make those little  buns a bit more festive, yet still very easy to make. A definite plus for those busy days.

Cheese and Garlic dinner buns
350 degree oven for baking

1/4 c warm water
1/4 c sugar
1 pkg (scant T) yeast
1 c warmed cottage cheese
1 t garlic salt
1/4 t baking soda
1 egg
1 c shredded cheese, I had a cheese blend on hand, but use what you have
1/2 c parsley leaves (about 12 stems) washed, plucked and rolled in a towel to dry
 2 1/4 c flour, you may use up to an additional 1/4 c if needed - for a total of 2 1/2 cups
additional cheese for tops, if desired
In a large mixer bowl, combine water, yeast and sugar, let set until yeast is active and foamy. Add remaining ingredients, beat well (a stand mixer is best for this recipe, it is a sticky dough that will climb the beaters on a hand held mixer) 2-3 minutes. Scrape beaters, and sides of bowl, sending dough to bottom of bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise 1 hour.

Stir down dough, divide into 12 prepared muffin cups. Cover and let rise 30 minutes, or until doubled. Sprinkle with the additional cheese.

If ready to bake preheat oven and bake 22-28 minutes or until done and golden brown. If desire, oil tops (if not using the cheese), cover loosely with wax paper and then a towel and place in refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator while preheating oven, when ready to bake.

Recipe rating:  Oh Yes! (will make again)

My wandering was only food related this week, it must be because of all the great produce available. Or maybe I have been focused on my own crafts and have not been looking for a new project. In any case, lets take a look at these, I hope they offer something new to enjoy for you and yours.

We must be in the salad days of summer, I am finding some wonderful salad recipes to share. One is even a super-food salad. This salad contains no lettuce, parsley is the salad green used here.

Here is a Caesar salad that has no raw egg, but does contain bacon. It was the bacon that caught my eye!

And here is a wonderful grilled Panzanella salad. It is beautiful as well as delicious.

If your garden is giving up lots of zucchini, you probably have a lot of squash blossoms also. This is a tasty and different side dish.

Here is a delicious vegetable dinner pie. If your household follows meatless Mondays, this would work out nicely.

And of course something sweet......

Do you have rhubarb? How about some vodka? Look here......

Or how about making plum wine?

Have a great evening,
I appreciate your visiting here, Thanks!

Those cheesy rolls look good. I can almost smell them from here.

Thanks, they were tasty! The garlic is very gentle, and adds nicely to the whole flavor. I love that these only take about 5 minutes in hands on time. I took half the batch over to share with my sister and her hubby.
