  • 3¼–3¾ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise® Instant Yeast
  • 2½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup water
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 6 ounces (1½ cups) shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 egg white


  1. Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat water and milk until very warm (120° to 130°F) and add to bowl. Beat 2 minutes, scraping bowl sides occasionally. Beat in 1 cup flour and cheese. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover and let dough rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Divide into 12 equal pieces. Form each piece into smooth ball. Place on 2 large greased baking sheets. Flatten balls to 3 to 4-inch rounds; cover. Let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. If desired, slash tops of rolls with a very sharp knife in a decorative pattern. Beat egg white with 1 tablespoon water and brush over tops of rolls.
  3. Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 19 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet; let cool on wire rack.
