Sourdough Cheese Rolls
Sourdough Cheese Rolls
Sourdough Cheese Rolls are wonderful! Tangy from the sourdough starter and with a cheesy flavor from the cheddar cheese. You can change the flavor of the rolls, simply by changing the cheese you use in the recipe. You can add one or two teaspoons of your favorite seasoning blend to the dough for added flavor. The rolls are about the size of a golf ball, slightly bigger, the perfect bite size.
Change the Cheese
To change the flavor of these rolls simply change the cheese used. Here are a few suggestions: shredded white cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese for an added kick, garlic-dill flavored cheese, perfect with fish. Another suggestion would be to add sliced green onions, crispy bacon or diced ham. Experiment and see what you come up with. Me and the hubby fell in love with these little beauties.
Is basically a bread with a slightly sour, tangy flavor created by using a special yeast starter as the leavener. San Francisco is well known for its superior sourdough bread and many food stores in the area sell packages of dry sourdough starter for home bread baking enthusiasts. Though most sourdoughs are made from all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour and rye flour and be used to create super sourdough starters.
