Garlic Cheesy Dinner Rolls

One of my favorite things to do is slip a love note or a card into my husbands lunch, or pocket, or car. Somewhere that he isn't expecting. Sometimes it takes him several hours to realize it is there, but when he does, he always calls or text messages me about how grateful he is. It makes us both feel good. 
Romantic Tip: Slip a love note in your love's pants or coat pocket.

Another favorite thing I love to do, is cook for my Man. These are his favorite homemade rolls. If you love cheese and garlic, these are for you!

Garlic Cheesy Dinner Rolls

1 1/4 tsp yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 TBSP fresh minced garlic, divided
2 TBSP melted Butter, divided
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese, divided
1 3/4 cups flour

Add the water to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook and sprinkle the sugar and  yeast over the top. Allow to sit for 10 minutes until the yeast becomes frothy. Add the oil, salt and egg to the bowl. Add the flour and mix on medium-low speed for about 2 minutes, just until the dough comes together. If the dough doesn’t clear the sides of the bowl, continue adding flour 1 tablespoon at a time.

Increase speed to medium and knead the dough for 5 minutes. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and allow to rest for 20 minutes. Add the salt and mix on low speed for an additional minute. Transfer the dough to a large, lightly greased bowl. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Grease the bottom and sides of an 8-inch baking pan. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half. Equally divide each half into 7 pieces about the size of a golf ball (2 ounces each if you’re weighing). Gently roll into rounds and place in the pans, leaving about half an inch of space between them. Half your garlic, butter and parmesan cheese. Using only half your garlic, butter and parmesan. Top each ball with garlic, melted butter and parmesan cheese. Let rise for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Cover rolls and allow to rise for at least 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350ยบ. 
With remaining butter, brush each roll with melted butter. Top with remaining garlic and parmesan and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
