Cheesy Garlic Pinwheel Rolls

DSCN3999These are the BEST rolls I have EVER had in my life. Seriously.
French Bread Dough:
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 1/2 c. warm water
1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
4-5 1/2 c. flour
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 egg yolk

Garlic Butter:
1/2 c. (1 stick) of real butter, softened to room temp.
1 1/2 Tbsp. garlic bread seasoning (I use Johnny’s Garlic Spread)

Shredded mozzarella cheese (enough to cover the dough)

Combine yeast, water, and sugar in large mixing bowl and allow to stand 10 minutes or until bubbly. Add salt, vegetable oil, and egg yolk (discard egg white) and combine. Add 3 c. flour and mix well until combined. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough that barely sticks to your finger. Knead, either by hand or in mixer, for another 2-3 minutes. Cover and allow to rise 1 hour.
While dough is rising, combine butter and garlic bread seasoning. Set aside.
Roll your dough into a rectangle that's about 18-20 inches by 6 inches. Smear garlic butter over the entire surface of the dough and then sprinkle with cheese.
Roll up jelly-roll style and then use thread to cut into 12-18 equal slices. Place each slice in a muffin tin(spray with cooking spray first). Cover with a clean damp cloth. Preheat oven to 350 and allow rolls to rise while the oven is heating.
When the oven is ready, bake for 18-22 minutes.
You're going to need to keep a CLOSE eye on these during the last 10 minutes--once you notice the cheese getting brown, place a sheet of aluminum foil over the rolls (you don't need to press it down, just lay it on top).
