Prep time includes resting time for the dough. You can let the dough rest and rise while you prepare the rest of your dinner.

Serves: 12 rolls
2 - 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 cup warm water (120F-130F degrees)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons honey
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
Pinch of sea salt
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, salt, yeast, garlic powder, and onion powder. Add warm water and melted butter. Beat for 3 minutes or until smooth. Turn off the mixer. With a spoon, stir in the cheese and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (1/2 - 1 cup).
On lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 4-6 minutes (you may need to add a little bit more flour if the dough is still sticky, but don't add too much). Cover and rest for 10 minutes.
Lightly grease an 8 or 9 inch round pan with cooking spray. Divide the dough into 12 pieces, shape into balls, and place in the pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, 30 minutes.
During the 30 minute rest, preheat the oven to 375F. When ready, bake the rolls 11-14 minutes or until lightly browned.
While the rolls are baking, make the honey butter: In a small bowl, combine the butter, honey, garlic powder, and onion powder. Brush over the warm rolls and sprinkle with some sea salt. Let cool until the glaze sets then serve warm.
