I have a carb problem lately if that hasn’t become incredibly obvious.

This time it’s for a good cause though. This year Fleischmann’s Yeast, Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Baking Mixes, and Karo Syrup launched the Baking a Difference campaign to benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign

They challenged me to put a spin on their Classic Dinner Rolls and this is what I came up with. I added a bunch of garlic and cheese and then made little knots. They were really simple and really delicious!

Fleischmann’s Yeast, Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Baking Mixes, and Karo Syrup are challenging you to put your own spin on their rolls so come up with something delicious and share it on the Fleischmann’s Yeast, Fleischmann’s Simple Homemade, or Karo Syrup Facebook pages.

And I have a fun giveaway to get your started! One winner will receive:

  • A premium bread basket with warming stone, and holiday-festive accessories including oven mitts, a set of holiday spreaders and gourmet Cinnamon Apple Butter
  • A basket of Fleischmann’s Yeast, Karo Syrup and Simply Homemade varieties, including the new Pretzel Creations, to help you get baking.

Answer this question in the comments to be entered: What kind of spin would you put on the dinner rolls? 

US only, please. The giveaway will run until November 28, 2013 at midnight EST.

Cheesy Garlic Knots
  • 2 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder divided
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
For brushing the rolls:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Combine 3/4 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, salt, and garlic powder in a large bowl. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 1/4 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough; add cheddar. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
  2. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece to a 12-inch rope. Tie loose knot in center and tuck ends under. Place on greased baking sheet.Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  3. Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 20 minutes or until done.
  4. A couple minutes before the rolls are done, melt the 1 tablespoon butter and stir in garlic powder. Brush rolls with this immediately after you pull them out of the oven.
  5. Serve warm.
