Cheesy Horn Rolls With Greek Yogurt And Feta
These horn rolls with Greek yogurt and feta cheese are flakey, cheesy and very easy to make. Crispy on the outside, buttery, they make a great treat for breakfast or brunch. They can also be enjoyed as bread rolls.
I’ve made these horn rolls many times in the past and the hardest part is to stop eating them. They are really addictive. This dough is very simple and it takes less than 10 minutes to make. While these do look like crescent rolls, the dough is made with greek yogurt and baking soda, not yeast. This makes the dough very easy to work with and there is no need to wait for it to rise. These horn rolls rise a little during baking. I do suggest, that after you mix the dough, you let it rest in the fridge for around 1 hour, just to make it easier to work with and achieve better results.
Greek yogurt is one of my favorite ingredients in baking. I usually prefer it over milk (whenever it is possible to substitute), because of the wonderful moisture it brings to baked goods. It also has dense, creamy texture, which gives baked goods better consistency and fine crumb. It works great in this recipe, because it also helps all ingredients stick together.
And since I have this recipe from my grandmother, the use of feta cheese is necessary. People in Bulgaria use it in a lot of recipes like this one. It brings extra moisture and saltiness to these horn rolls.
The recipe calls for shredded mozzarella cheese, but I almost never use mozzarella. I’ve tried it with cheddar, swiss and gouda cheese and every single time these rolls turned extremely delicious, just with a slight variation in flavor. This time I used swiss cheese in the recipe and I loved how the salty feta and sweetness of the swiss along with the tanginess of the yogurt complement each other.
These cheesy horn rolls with Greek yogurt and feta cheese will be perfect for the coming holidays. They would make a nice breakfast, snack or bread substitute. Kid friendly and you can also make them a little smaller than mine.

Cheesy Horn Rolls With Greek Yogurt And Feta
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 7 oz shredded feta cheese
- 7 oz shredded swiss cheese — (mozzarella, cheddar or gouda will work)
- 4 cups all purpose flour
- 6 oz (3/4 cup, 170gr ) unsalted butter at room temperature, cut into small pieces
In a small bowl combine baking soda and yogurt and set a side.
You can use a kitchen aid mixer or mix dough in a large bowl. I usually use my stand mixer, but note that the dough is very thick.
In the bowl of a stand mixer mix together yogurt and soda, cheeses and flour until everything gets evenly distributed.
Mixing on low speed, add butter. Knead for 3-5 minutes.
Form a ball from the dough and wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Line baking pan with parchment paper or silpat.
Dust working surface with some flour. Cut dough into 4-6 pieces (of equal size) and form balls.
Roll each ball into a 10-12 inch circle (5mm thick). Cut each circle into 8 triangles. Roll each one from large end to the small one.
Transfer to baking sheet and bake for 20-22 minutes, until golden.
Let horn rolls cool to room temperature.
