Ingredients

6 tablespoons butter or margarine, at room temperature
1/3 cup chopped garlic
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 pound (1 loaf) thawed frozen white or whole-wheat bread dough or homemade bread dough
2/3 cup shredded longhorn cheddar or sharp cheddar cheese

Preparation

1. Mix butter, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of the parmesan cheese.

2. On a lightly floured board, pat, roll, and stretch dough into a 12- by 16-inch rectangle. If dough springs back, let rest a few minutes, then continue to shape.

3. Spread garlic-butter mixture evenly over dough. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheddar cheese.

4. From a 16-inch edge, roll dough to enclose filling. Cut log of dough crosswise into 16 equal rolls.

5. Setting on cut sides, evenly space rolls in a buttered 9- by 13-inch pan.

6. Cover pan lightly with plastic wrap. Let rolls rise in a warm place until almost doubled in size, 25 to 35 minutes. Remove wrap; sprinkle rolls with remaining parmesan and cheddar cheeses.

7. Bake in a 350° oven until golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in pan on a rack about 5 minutes. With a wide spatula, lift rolls from pan and serve warm or cool.
