Bread Baking for the Intimidated: Parmesan Rolls

Did you resolve to bake bread this year? Have you done it yet? If shaping a loaf still sounds scary, these savory little rolls from Gourmet may be a good preliminary exercise…

These look good to us for a few reasons. The process seems relatively simple (one rise), and they have cheese in them—salty parmigiano-reggiano grated into the dough. Which means that, if we’re trying to show restraint and eat only one roll with dinner, at least it has a little something extra to offer.

We think a bench scraper would be a good tool to have on hand, however, since you need to divide the dough into 12 equal pieces.

What do you think? Anyone else have a good cheesy bread recipe they love?
