Parmesan cheesy rolls

A twist on my standard Kaiser rolls. These are definitely for salty sandwiches. My husband loves them and they are his favorite rolls, currently...

0.25 cup water
0.75 tbsp yeast
2 tsp honey
1 egg
0.75 cup warm milk
0.25 cup melted butter
1.5 tsp salt
3.25 cup flour
1.5 oz Parmesan cheese
1.5 oz Monterey Jack cheese

PreparationBloom the yeast with the honey and the warm water. Mix in the melted butter, the beaten egg and warm milk. Add in the flour and salt mixture gradually, until elastic dough forms. Knead for 5-10 minutes

Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes on a floured surface, while you prepare a baking sheet. Cut dough into eight pieces, roll into tubes. Tie a knot on each tube, then fold the upper end under the knot and the lower end on the top. Tuck the ends in. Place onto the baking sheet.

Allow to rise covered with a clean kitchen towel in a warm oven (set to preheat for 2 minutes, then turn off). After 25 minutes brush the rolls with milk. Preheat the oven to 375F. When the oven preheated, brush with milk again. Grate the cheeses and mix them. Distribute the mixture on top of the rolls.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on a cookie rack.
