Cheese-onion-breadrolls

Another easy recipe for lovely breadrolls. These are perfect to take to school or work. 12 of these breadbuns cost as much as 1 cheese-onion-breadroll at the bakers´, so worth the try.

500 g flower
10 g butter
1 packet dry yeast (7 g)
A little sugar and some salt
75 g grated cheese
3 onions

Preparation:
Put the yeast with 100 ml lukewarm water and ½ teaspoon sugar in a small bowl and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Take a bowl and put the flower and 1 tsp salt in, mix in the yeast mixture and another 200 ml of lukewarm water. Leave it in a warm spot for about an hour.
In the meantime fry the onions in a bit of butter until golden brown and grate the cheese.
When the dough has doubled in size form 12 breadrolls and put the onions and cheese on. Leave to rise for about another half hour in a warm spot (this can be the oven on 40°C). Bake for 20 minutes on 190°C and ready are your homemade breadrolls!
