12 frozen dinner rolls
6 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli Sharp Cheddar American, quartered
2 tablespoons baking soda
1 teaspoon sugar
6 cups water
1 Land O Lakes® Egg, slightly beaten
Coarse sea salt


Spray baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Place rolls onto sheet; cover lightly with plastic food wrap. Let rise at room temperature 1 1/2-2 hours or until completely thawed and rolls feel soft.

Stack 2 quarters cheese; fold in half.  Fold in half again, forming small cube. Press cheese into center of roll; seal dough around cheese, pinching edges tightly. Repeat with remaining cheese and rolls. Place onto baking sheet; let rest 15 minutes.

Heat oven to 425ºF. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Place water into large saucepan; bring to boil over high heat. Carefully add baking soda and sugar. (Water will bubble up, then return to a gentle boil.) Drop 4 rolls into gently boiling water; cook, turning once, about 30 seconds per side or until surface of dough has lightly bubbled appearance. Remove with slotted spoon; place onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining rolls.

Brush each roll with beaten egg; sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 3 minutes. Serve warm.

I've made these twice so far and they disappear in a hurry. My husband requested me to make them for his poker guys when they play at our place. I used Colby jack cheese the second time, but I feel they were more flavorful with the cheddar

Cranberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
November 24, 2015 by Mallory

One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal is my husband’s homemade cranberry sauce. It’s a tart and sweet sauce, with hints of orange zest and brown sugar.
