Ingredients

  • 5-1/2 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups very warm water (120° to 130°F)
  • 2 tablespoon butter OR margarine, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion

Directions

  1. Mix 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixer bowl. Add very warm water and butter to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed with electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1 cup flour, or enough flour to make a thick batter. Beat at high speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in cheese, onion and enough additional flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Divide dough into 20 equal pieces. Form each piece into a smooth ball and place on greased baking sheets. Flatten balls to 3 to 4-inch rounds; cover. Let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
  3. Bake at 400°F 15 to 20 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheets and cool on wire racks.
  4. Optional Toppings: Whisk 1 egg with 1 tablespoon water. Brush on rolls just before they are ready to go into the oven. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese.
