These Cheesy Garlic Mozzarella Swirl Rolls are melty, buttery, savory bliss and the perfect thing to go with all the soup that you are going to be serving this winter!
You know how last week I posted about the delicious awesomeness that is One Pot Lasagna Soup? Well you can’t have lasagna without garlic bread, and I’m here to tell you that if you are going to have lasagna soup you are definitely going to want to have some cheesy, savory, garlicky carb-loaded wonderfulness to go with it. Like these Cheesy Garlic Mozzarella Swirl Rolls.
I’m a sucker for cheesy garlic bread or mozzarella breadsticks. If we are out to eat somewhere and the restaurant has something along those lines on the menu, I’m done for. I don’t even need an entree – just all the carbs and possibly a salad to assuage my guilt. It’s seriously a problem and I ought to seek help but I’m not going to because my world would be so much darker without all the bread and cheese and garlicky, buttery deliciousness. And my heart just can’t take that.
These rolls are relatively quick to throw together too, aside from the rising time. It’s just like making any old batch of yeast bread dough – some mixing of ingredients, a little kneading, and then a nice rise to let the dough double in volume. Then the rolls get their star treatment by rolling them out, slathering them with a garlic butter spread and sprinkling mozzarella cheese over it all before rolling them up, cinnamon roll style, slicing them into individual rolls, and stuffing them into the individual cups of a muffin pan to give them some shape. Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom, these are simple enough to throw together on a cold, rainy afternoon, then start a pot of soup and have them together for a perfectly comforting and soul-satisfying dinner. Plus, if you pair these cheesy garlic mozzarella swirl rolls with a lighter soup like vegetable or maybe even Chicken Avocado Lime Soup, then you don’t have to feel as guilty about having a second roll. Just saying.
And here’s a pro tip for leftover rolls: you can warm them up in the microwave for 10-15 seconds the next day and they will taste like they just came out of the oven again. Then slice one of these rolls in half and use it to make a seriously off-the-hook ham sandwich. Yummy.
