Cheese and Onion Bread Rolls

  • 1 & 1/2 h
  • Serves 10
  • Easy


You know the amazing Cinnamon Rolls, right? But probably you don’t know the onion & cheese Dutch bread. Since I landed here I wanted to try to make it, because it’s just great. A flat layer of bread covered with onions and cheese that melt in your mouth. Perfection. And while I was getting ready to make this I remembered that there was one thing that I wished for the Dutch bread to have: puffiness. Yes, I love my doughs puffy and moist, with a little crip and lots of flavour. So I thought “hm, there must be something that I can do to that bread, to make it fluffy like a cinnamon roll” And than it stuck me! Yes, I am gonna make the cheese and onion version of the Cinnamon Rolls. And trust me, it iss as great as the sweet ones!

The Onions

Cut your onions in very thin rounds and cut the rounds in half. Add butter and thyme in a pan and saute until brown. Season with salt and pepper and let cool off before you put them on the dough.


The Dough

In a clean bowl mix the yeast with a little bit of salt. Add the warm water on top, gently stir and let the yeast dissolve for 5 minutes. Add the flour to the bowl and mix with your fingers. Start kneading and be careful not to add too much flour to the dough. It has to be a little sticky but no too much. If you find it hard to knead, lightly flour your surface and put a little bit of olive oil on your hands. If the dough it really sticky add a bit of flour on top and go on until it becomes easier. Knead for 5-7 minutes until the dough is elastic.

If you have a machine than follow the bread programme and it will turn out great.


Rub with a few drops of olive oil and let it rise in a warm place. And when I say a warm place I mean in the oven. Usually I like to preheat my oven to 150 C, put the fire out when I start kneading the dough and make it warm and cozy in there for the dough. It doesn't have to be hot, just warm, but it depends a lot of kind of oven you have, so if you don't feel safe doing it like this just be sure that the place where you let it rise it's not a cold surface or a lot of draft. After one hour it should double in volume and become very puffy.


Preheat your oven at 200 C. Lightly flour a flat surface and get ready to roll. Flatten the dough gently with your hand and spread it with the roller in a rectangular-wannabe shape. Don't roll it too thin. Mine turned out a bit oval, but it doesn't matter because you will make a giant roulade out of it.


Put the onions on top of the dough layer leaving one edge free. Add 200 g of grated cheese on top. Start rolling and gently squeeze to make everything stick together, sealing at the end with a little butter on the free edge. let it rest for 5 minutes.


With a very sharp knife cut the ends and make 10-12 rolls. I somehow made 11, because I didn't approximate right, but be sure not to make them too thick. Flip them on the side and admire them for 10 minutes while they still rise in a warm place (don't use the oven this time).


Brush them with a little bit of egg yolk and top with cheese. Place in the middle of the oven and let them bake for 20 minutes. If the dough is not a bit crispy on the outside and pale brown put them back and check again after 10 minutes. I baked mine for around 25-28 minutes. Serve immediately while hot.
