Cheese Rolls using a Gluten-Free Bread Mix
I had a sample bag of The Twisted Bakery Gluten Free White Bread and Bun Mix from about two months ago, thanks to Tailor Made Nutrition.
Tailor Made Nutrition has Super Sample Saturdays with different vendors giving samples of their new products. It is usually held between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. Of course, I can never make it before 3:00 pm. Finally, one Saturday, I made a real effort to get there before everyone left. I got there about 10 minutes to 3, but everyone had already left. I inquired about the vendors and said that I had tried to get there, but missed everyone. Well, they had a couple of bread mix samples left, so I got one of them.
I have been thinking about what I could make with the mix, before it went rancid. Finally, I remembered converting a cheese roll to gluten-free on the then MixingBowl.com. Cant' find the recipe since the site reorganized - will have to find it and come back to update this.
Basically, I followed the instructions on the package. I didn’t think there was enough mix in the sample to make 12 dinner-size rolls, so I added in 1/4 cup of my whole-grain mix to extend it.
1 bag The Twisted Bakery Gluten Free White Bread and Bun Mix(16oz)
1/4 cups gluten free whole grain flour
1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
3/4 cups warm water (100° to 110°)
1/3 tsp. Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/3 cup finely chopped garlic flavored white cheddar cheese
olive oil for spraying the tops of rolls
Chop the cheese into small pieces. This hasn’t been chopped yet.
Place all ingredients, except cheese in a bowl of a stand mixer and beat for 2 minutes.
Drop the cheese in during the last 15 seconds and continue beating.
Grease the cups of a muffin pan with shortening. Divide the dough among the cups. Use a wet spatula with the extra water shaken off to smooth the tops as much as you like them...
Lightly Spray tops with canola or olive oil. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
ready for the oven
Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks.

This mix makes a fluffy role, very similar to the rolls as I remember them.
For more cheesy taste, increase the cheese by 2 tablespoons. Don’t over do it or it may not rise as much.
