Cream Cheese Onion Rolls

I love rolling different fillings into bread, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert.  It tastes wonderful and the presentation is lovely.  This recipe is from, I used their filling recipe for cream cheese onion filling in my homemade bread.  These rolls would be great served with soup or salad, so delicious!

Bread Dough:
1/4 cup warm water (110°)
2¼ tsp (1 pkt) dry yeast
1½ Tbl sugar
1 cup warm water
1½ tsp salt
1 heaping Tbl shortening, softened
3¼ cups flour

Cream Cheese Onion Filling:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup French fried onions (French’s)
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 Tbl poppy seeds
1 Tbl dried parsley flakes
1½ tsp garlic powder

In small bowl, sprinkle yeast into the 1/4 cup warm water and sprinkle sugar over yeast.  In large bowl of mixer, combine the 1 cup warm water, salt, shortening (I softened shortening in microwave a few seconds) and 1 cup flour.  Mix until smooth.  Add the yeast, mix well.  Add remaining flour.  Knead. Turn into greased bowl, cover and let rise until double about 1 hour.

For the filling, mix cream cheese and butter.  Add onion, parmesan, poppy seeds, parsley flakes, and garlic powder, mix until well combined.

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface into a 18″x12″ rectangle.  Spread filling over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side, pinch seams to seal.  Cut into 12 slices about 1½” each.  Place on Silpat lined perforated sheet or sprayed baking pan.  Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.  Bake in preheated 350° oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden.
