Cheesy Skillet Bread Rolls With Kaukauna® Cheese – simple recipe, prefect for your holiday party.

Cheesy Skillet Bread Rolls

Holidays are just around the corner and I’m extremely excited to share with you a quick and easy way to prepare an appetizer, great for entertaining.

I’m a huge lover of cheese and good quality cheese needs to be present on my party menu.

On my recent trip to my local Jewel Osco store, I spotted Kaukauna® Cheese logs, balls and cups. I usually get these for party platters on celebrations, birthdays, holiday gatherings of just wine and cheese evenings at home.

Their cheese comes in cups, logs, and balls.

I got the Kaukauna® Cheese Logs in Double Sharp Cheddar and Port Wine. Both flavors taste amazing! They are made with 100% real cheddar.


Kaukauna® is delicious by itself or part of a recipe. Instead of serving the cheese with traditional crackers, which is totally fine and delicious, I decided to bake some homemade bread rolls in a skillet.


These Skillet Bread Rolls paired well with Kaukauna® Cheese Logs in Double Sharp Cheddar and Port Wine. The taste is perfect, especially, if you serve the rolls warm. Add some nuts and seasonal fruit to it and you have the perfect holiday appetizer.

Calories: 229 kcal
  • 1 tbsp dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup milk warmed up to 115 F
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4-4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs beaten large
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese optional
  • Kaukauna® Double Sharp Cheddar Cheese or Port Wine Cheddar Cheese for serving
  • grapes
  • nuts of your choice
  1. In a small bowl, combine yeast with 1/4 cup of milk and 1/4 tsp of sugar. Cover and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, until frothed (to proof).

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the hook attachment, combine 4 cups of flour, salt and sugar. Add frothed yeast mixture, milk, butter and egg. Stir to combine. 

  3. With the mixer on medium, knead for 5 minutes, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Dust a working surface with some flour and transfer the dough. Knead for 2 minutes, form into a ball and transfer to a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, cover with a towel and let it rise in a dark place for 1- 1 1/2 hours.

  4. Spray a cast  iron skillet (9-inch) with cooking spray.

  5. The dough should have doubled its size by now. Remove the wrap and deflate dough. Transfer to a dusted with flour surface. Make a log and cut into 12 equal parts. Roll each one into a ball.

  6. Place in the skillet. 

    Cover and let them rise for 20-30 minutes.

  7. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  8. Top with cheese (optional). Bake for 20 minutes, until the top i golden and toothpick inserted, comes out clean.
