Soft and fluffy, easy cheese rolls with a little ranch kick in there
We all know that Cade and I are unbelievably in love with perfect rolls, right? I mean, we practically obsess about roll recipes until we get them just perfect. These easy cheesy ranch rolls are pretty gosh darn fantastic and though they have to rise a few times, they are super easy and turn out perfect every time.

So we have the best homemade rolls, the most squishy potato rolls, and the most flavorful herbed garlic rolls, but we totally needed a cheese rolls recipes. Oh buddy, this is it! And you don’t need anything other than a bowl to make them in.

Oh and did we mention that we threw a little ranch in there? And some powdered buttermilk for good measure. If I’m looking to get these puppies really moving fast and fluffy I add about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of soy lecithin, but it really does so well on its own you don’t need it.

Can Bread Dough Be Frozen?

Yes, it is possible to freeze bread dough that contains yeast and has already risen once.

Wrap loosely and place in a freezer container.

Allow to thaw and raise before baking.

How Do You Reheat Rolls?

To reheat rolls in the oven, wrap in foil and place on baking sheet.

Place in 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

To reheat rolls in the microwave, arrange rolls on a microwave-safe plate.

Cover the rolls with a slightly damp, clean kitchen towel.

Wrap the entire plate in a dry towel.

Microwave until just warmed through, 30 to 45 seconds.

If the rolls are heated piping hot, they will get tough as they cool.

How Do You Store Yeast?

Yeast should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

The best way to store bulk yeast is in a glass container with a tight fitting lid.

Place the container of yeast in the freezer.

It will keep for at least 1 year.
