    2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons mashed potato flakes
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups water
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • TOPPING:
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, potato flakes, yeast, salt, dill and garlic powder. In a small saucepan, bring water and butter just to a boil.
  • In a small bowl, pour boiling liquid over oats. Let stand until mixture cools to 120°-130°, stirring occasionally. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough (dough will be sticky).
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Knead in mozzarella cheese. Place in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/4 hours.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place in a 13x9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray; brush milk over rolls.
  • In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; sprinkle over tops. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers.
