I am always looking for ways to spice up dinner rolls. I love bread and butter and what could be better than a buttered cheesy and mildly spicy roll. These rolls are a great accompaniment to a pot roast dinner or even a chicken and gravy dinner. I used them as hamburger buns and they added a lovely layer of flavor!

You can easily make this recipe in a bread machine by adding all the ingredients to your machine's pan and using the dough setting. When the dough is done, continue with the "On a floured surface...."

Gently stir in yeast and 1 tablespoon of the sugar, and let bloom for 5 minutes.
Add egg, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, remaining sugar and the salt and gently combine
Add flour and mix with paddle until the machine strains then switch to the dough hook.
Knead for 10 minutes until dough is soft but not sticky, adding flour if necessary.
Turn into a greased bowl, and let rise until doubled in size covered, for one hour.
On a floured surface gently deflate dough and knead lightly.
Divide dough into 12 balls. On a floured board, roll dough piece into ball.
