Mozzarella Stuffed Buns (a variation of this recipe)
- 1 cup warm water (not too hot or it will kill the yeast)
- 2 tbsp yeast
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp salt
- 8 oz of mozzarella cheese in 1 inch cubes
- Melted garlic herb butter
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the yeast and water and let it sit for a couple minutes to proof. In your mixer bowl, combine the sugar, garlic powder, melted butter, and oil. Add the flour a little and a time, mixing in your stand mixer with a dough hook. Add the salt. Knead for 10 minutes, in the stand mixer. Let the dough rise in a greased bowl for 30 minutes.
Turn the dough onto a floured counter top and kneed until smooth and not too sticky, about 5 times. Divide the dough into 15 to 20 pieces, depending on how large you want the buns. Place a chunk of cheese in the center of each one, making sure to pinch the edges together to completely cover the cheese. Place seam side down onto a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle the buns with more cheese and top with some melted garlic herb butter. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Makes approx 20 buns.
