These buns are great for breakfast.  The dough is nice and soft.  Perfect compliment to Cheddar cheese.  You can either make them as a bun or you can roll out the dough, put cheese in the middle in the shape of crescents or circles.  This is a lot of dough for our family.  I usually make this dough and divide in half.  Make cheese buns with half (when you do this, please remember to reduce cheddar cheese to half as well), and use the other half for other things.
1/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon yeast

3/4 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon cooking oil
1 or 2 cups graded cheddar cheese (Depending on your preference)
5.5 cups flour
1 egg yolk for glaze
Sesame seed/blackened sesame seeds or poppy seeds for sprinkle
  • Combine 1/4 cup warm water, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon yeast and set aside for 15 minutes
  • Add yeast, remaining water, warm milk, salt, cooking oil and 5 cups of the flour and make a soft dough.  Be careful with the remaining 1/2 cup of flour.  You may not need it at all or need more.  Just add a bit at a time.  It is important to continue to knead the dough.  When it no longer sticks to your hands, it is ready.  Cover and set aside in room temperature for 1-2 hours to let the dough rise.
  • If you are planning to use the shape of the buns same as mine, add shredded cheese into the dough and knead to make sure cheese spreads all through the dough.  Save a bit of the cheese for the top.  Take small pieces (about the size of a clementine) and roll out to a "stick" and tie in the shape of the bun and put on a lined cookie sheet
  • My kids like the ones that are shaped like circles with cheese in the middle.  To make those, take a small piece of dough and roll it out.  Put cheese in the middle and roll into shape of sticks, making sure there is no room for cheese to come out during cooking.  Roll into a circle and put them on a lined cookie sheet.
  • Glaze with egg yolk and sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds  
  • Preheat oven 350 degrees
  • Cook until golden brown (35-40 minutes)
