Chive Dinner Rolls

These have a really cool look to them that not only looks original but it also fun to eat as you pull apart the layers.  Oh, and they taste pretty good, too.


  • 4 tsp yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 6 - 6.5 cups flour, divided
  • 3 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 3/4 cup chives, chopped
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 tbsp virgin olive oil, divided


  1. Combine the yeast and sugar.  Add the warm water and let sit until it gets bubbly (about 3-5 minutes).
  2. Add four cups of flour, the salt, yogurt, chives, and vegetable oil.  Mix well.
  3. Add enough remaining flour to form a dough.  Knead for about 10 minutes.
  4. Form dough into a ball and let rise until doubled, about 90 minutes.
  5. Divide dough into quarters.
  6. Roll out one quarter into a 12" x 18" rectangle.  Pour 1 tbsp of oil on the dough and spread evenly, being certain to get the edges.
  7. Cut lengthwise into 12 strips, each 18" long.  Stack each on top of the other, oil side up.  They'll slip a little, but do your best to make a stack.
  8. Cut into six even sections.  Move each to a greased muffin pan and position vertically.  Fan out the layers.  It doesn't have to be perfect.
  9. Repeat steps 6-9 with the remaining quarters of dough.
  10. Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 60-90 minutes.
  11. Bake at 350ºF for 18-22 minutes.  Let cool for five minutes before serving warm.
