Olive and Asiago Rolls

by on February 15, 2011 · 10 comments

In the comment section of my last post, Cindy D asked what was on our Valentine’s Day menu. Truthfully, it wasn’t that exciting. My family loves Roast Beef Au Jus so that’s what I made. Oh, and mashed potatoes. I was more excited about the dessert and the rolls. In fact, I was going to post this photo last night but was having problems with the computer.

This recipe is from Cooking Light. I hadn’t made it in years, but it seemed like a good bread for Valentine’s Day and sure enough, it was a hit with Fuzz who said the flavors reminded her of Italy.

I followed the recipe as written, but halved it and used dried rosemary leaves in place of the oregano and shredded Parmesan in place of the Asiago.

Ooh, I love both kalamata olive and asiago. This is going on the list!

Thanks for reminding me of the recipe- I’ve been baking a lot of bread this year and these will go on the list. My 5 y.o. loves olives and I think he’ll like these rolls!

Thank you for sharing! Family favorites/tried and true can be the best choice. I was going to make beef stroganoff but my husband wanted to just have the sirloin as steak and it was wonderful.

I am really into making my own breads lately- I will have to try these!

Anna, These look like they’d make good rolls for grilled chicken sandwiches with roasted peppers and onions. What do you think? Just need to be a little larger :-)

It looks so fluffy. What does it ask for 1% fat milk though? What would happen if I used whole milk? Thank you. :)

Anna, these remind me of a Kalamata bread recipe from long ago but I love yours better in a roll style!

These rolls were very light in texture and would make great sandwich rolls/buns.

Cute little bun with an innie. I always wanted those plates.
