Asiago Kaiser Rolls!

Sunday is Father's Day! I have so many men to celebrate on this special day - My dear hubby who has been an amazing companion to me  and good father to our three kids......My crazy son, who, in spite of his craziness, has grown to become a super husband to his wife and excellent father to their two little boys.......Chris, my son-in-law, who is an outstanding husband to our eldest daughter and a loving dad to their two daughters.......Brian, my other son-in-law, who is a caring hubby to our youngest daughter and a soon-to-be dad to their child in the womb......My dad, who was an outstanding example of giving to one's community......My father-in-law, who was a character in his own right, but a terrific guy........  I hope you can single out a few men in your life to celebrate this Father's Day! 

Perhaps you're doing the "grill-thing" for your celebration......These burger buns are AMAZING! Rarely does my hubby rave about my bread (I get "This is very good" a lot, but raves do not come often!) , but this one got RAVES!!! In fact, he told me he could eat the whole batch himself! This is doubtful, but it does speak to the tastiness of these wonderful rolls! Enjoy!! 

Asiago Kaiser Rolls!

1 packet/Tbsp. Red Star Platinum Yeast
1 cup warm water
3 Cups unbleached bread flour (you may substitute unbleached all-purpose flour)
¼  Cup asiago cheese, finely grated
1 ½ tsp. kosher salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. shortening
1 Egg white, beaten  

For topping:
1 egg white beaten with 2 tsp. cold water
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds (or seeds of your preference)
2 Tbsp. asiago cheese, finely grated

Place warm water and yeast in EZ DOH bucket and stir to dissolve yeast. Let rest 1 minute. Add one cup of flour, then additional dough ingredients. EZ DOH-it for 2-3 minutes, or until dough is smooth and soft and all ingredients are incorporated. Remove dough from bucket, spray bucket with cooking spray, “smooth” dough and replace in bucket. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled.

Deflate dough and remove from the bucket. Divide it into 8 equal pieces, shaping each piece into a 12” rope. To form each “rope” into a roll: Tie the rope into a very loose knot with 3” “tails” on either side. Take the top “tail” and tuck it underneath the knot, then gently push it up through the center hole. Bring the other “tail” over the top and gently push it down through the center. Place finished knots on a large greased cookie, leaving 2-3 inches between rolls.  Cover with a tea towel and let rise until puffy. Preheat oven to 400. When rolls are risen, brush the tops with the beaten egg white and sprinkle each roll with poppy seeds and a little asiago cheese. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, until the rolls are golden.
