French Onion Pull-Apart Rolls
a Weekend Gourmet original
Ingredients (makes eight rolls):
  • 8 sourdough dinner rolls
  • 2 sticks salted butter, room temperature
  • 4 tbs. onion soup mix
  • 2 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 2 tbs. chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 cups grated Gruyere cheese
  • 2 tbs. chopped fresh thyme
  • Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
Step 1: Add the butter, onion soup mix, garlic, and parsley to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, until the butter is melted. Stir well to completely combine all ingredients. Set aside until you're ready to assemble the rolls.
Step 2: Slice the sourdough rolls horizontally and vertically approximately 1 inch deep, into rows. Spread the cuts slightly apart. Carefully spoon the melted butter mixture into each cut, making sure the entire roll contains some of the butter mixture. Some of the onions and herbs from the butter mixture should also be on top of each roll. Place the rolls on a rimmed baking sheet.
Step 3: Add 1/4 cup of Gruyere cheese to each roll, placing some cheese inside the cuts of the roll and mounding the remainder of the cheese on top. Sprinkle chopped thyme on top of each roll, then sprinkle with salt and cracked black pepper.
Step 4: When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375. Bake the rolls for 10 minutes, until the they are toasted and golden brown. The cheese should be melted inside the rolls and on top. Serve immediately, while the cheese is gooey.
These cheesy rolls are positively addictive! If you close your eyes, you'll swear you're tasting a bowl of French onion soup. The nutty Gruyere cheese and herbal thyme pair perfectly with the onion-flavored butter. These rolls are a perfect pairing for roasted turkey -- as part of your holiday meal OR with leftover turkey for lunch the next day. Trust *need* to try these cheesy pull-apart rolls ASAP!
