  • Combine all bread ingredients in your stand mixer bowl. Knead with the dough hook for 7-10 minutes until the dough becomes smooth, soft, and stretchy.
  • Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover with cling wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for 60-90 minutes until it doubles in size.

*Cheese sauce:*

  • Melt butter in a nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Sauté garlic until fragrant.
  • Add flour, stir for 1 minute, then add milk and seasonings. Cook until smooth and thickened.
  • Turn heat to low, add shredded cheeses and cream cheese. Stir until fully mixed. Adjust seasoning and let it cool.


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F during the last 20 minutes of the second rise.
  • Roll the risen dough into a 12×14″ rectangle. Spread the cheese sauce and optionally sprinkle more mozzarella.
  • Cut into 2″ thick strips, roll each strip tightly, and place in a prepared pan. Let them rise for another 30-45 minutes.

*Baking & serving:*

  • Bake for 20-22 minutes until golden.
  • Melt butter for honey butter, mix with honey, and brush onto hot rolls.
  • Serve and savor the deliciousness!


For irresistibly soft rolls, ensure the dough doubles in size before assembly. When gently poked, it should spring back partially. Enjoy your cheesy bread roll adventure!
