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  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.

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.


  1. tomorrow I will try to make for my 2 lovable kids they look great! I love cheese.

  2. I see where Danny Klecko from the St.Agnes Baking Co., is making a Dutch Quick Bread at the fair. I asked for the recipe, since it appears that I won't see him make it. It is basically a quick bread that has Gouda cheese mixed in. Now I see your cheese rolls and I really want to make a cheese bread...
