Herbed Muffin Rolls

These are simple muffin size rolls that I had bookmarked from TasteofHome. The rolls are simple and easy to make and I made them without any changes.Its the way these rolls are made or rather the way the herbs are added to it that attracted me to it.

All Purpose Flour: 10 tbsp
Sugar: 1/4 tsp
Salt: 1/4 tsp
Instant Yeast:  3/4 tsp

Canola Oil: 1 and 1/2 tsp
Warm water: 1/4 cup

Butter: 1 tbsp softened

Garlic: powdered/grated: 3/4 tsp
Parmesan Cheese: 1 tsp
Dried Oregano: 1/4 tsp
Dried Basil: 1/4 tsp

In a bowl,mix together flour,salt and yeast.Make a well and add in oil and water and knead to form a smooth and elastic dough,turning the dough on a lightly floured surface if needed. This takes about 6-8 minutes.
Place in a bowl greased with spray/oil,turning once to coat and llet it sit for about 30 minutes when it doubles.
Grease the muffins cups with softened butter. Mix together garlic powdered /fresh paste along with parmesan cheese,and the spices.sprinkle the muffin cups with a little of the mixture.

Pucnh down the dough and divide it into 6 pieces.Take a piece,shape it into a ball,put it into the muffin cup turning once to coat.Cover and let rise until doubled about 30 minutes.

Bake at 400 for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.Remove and cool on a wire rack.Serve warm.

The original recipe suggested baking at 425 for about 10 -15 minutes. but I went for 400F only.I got barely 5 muffin rolls rather than the mentioned 6. May be my rolls were bigger?!.

Anyway they taste best when warm and are cheesy but the can be split opened and served with cheese spread or whatever you like an are also good with soups.The rolls are crusty with softer crumb.You can add more spices than those mentioned and try with different cheeses.I tried with powdered parmesan.
