Ham & Cheese Rolls

Loving these no-knead bread recipes. Just makes everything so much easier.

Another Martha Stewart recipe that has been scaled down to half of the original.
  • 1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
  • 7.5 mL active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp margarine, melted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ~ 2 cups whole wheat flour, plus more for shaping dough
  • 3/4 cup cooked ham, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1)  Pour warm water into a large bowl; sprinkle with yeast, and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
2)  Whisk together sugar, margarine, egg; whisk in yeast mixture. Add flours; mix until incorporated and a sticky dough forms. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and set aside in a warm place until dough has doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.3)  Turn dough out onto a well-floured work surface. With floured hands, roll dough into a rectangle and evenly distribute ham/ cheese throughout.

4)  Roll rectangle into a log. Cut into 12-15 equal pieces.

5)  Spray pan with non-stick spray or line with parchment. Place dough balls in prepared baking pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 30-40 minutes. (Alternatively, refrigerate, at least 4 hours and up to 1 day.) You can also sprinkle a little more cheese on top of the rolls before baking.

6)  Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove plastic wrap and bake until golden and rolls sound hollow when tapped on bottom, 30- 35 minutes (tent with aluminum foil if browning too quickly). Pull rolls apart, and serve warm.

The rolls turned out okay for no kneading. They could have used a bit more ham and cheese in them though. I’m curious to try a sweet filling next time… maybe cinnamon and raisin rolls or nutella…
