Quick Italian Hot Rolls

1 1/2 C flour
2 packages/2 TB yeast
2 TB sugar
2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp Italian seasoning

1/2 C water
1 C milk
1 egg
2 TB butter/margarine, melted

1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
2-3 C flour

2 TB butter
1/4 C Parmesan cheese


In a large mixing bowl combine 1 1/2 C. flour, yeast, sugar, garlic salt, italian seasoning. Mix well.

In a sauce pan heat milk, water and butter until warm--butter doesn't need to melt. Add to flour mixture. Add egg. Blend at low speed until it moistens. Beat 3 minutes at medium speed.

By hand, gradually stir in 1/2 C. Parmesan and enough flour to make firm dough. Knead on well-floured surface until smooth and elastic for 3-5 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to greased top. Cover and let rise in warm place for 15 minutes. Punch down dough. Divide into equal pieces, form into balls. Dip tops into melted butter and 1/4 c. cheese. Place in well-greased pan. Cover and let rise in warm place for 10 minutes. Bake for 18 minutes at 350F or until golden brown. Remove from pan to cool.

I haven't had a lot of luck with dinner rolls, but I've had spectacular success with these. You'll LOVE them. Yum.
