foodie favorites

Ok, These are INCREDIBLE! And they are Spencer's absolute favorite thing. When you make these you must double the recipe, because I promise you if you dont you will regret it!
I adapted this recipe from a great blog called kaitlin in the kitchen. She has fabulous recipes...go check it out. But, make these rolls first!
OOh, and i am going to start posting my favorite recipes on this blog from now on, so maybe i will be better at it. My sister is inspiring me.

Six Cheese Stuffed Garlic Bread Bites

1 Package Active Dry Yeast
1 Cup Warm Water
1/4 Cup sugar
1/2 Teaspoons Salt
3 Teaspoons Olive Oil
2 1/2 to 3 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
8 Ounce Package Six Cheese Blend (mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, asiago, fontina and romano), shredded (Cloby Jack is wonderful too)
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Teaspoon Dry Italian Seasoning
3 Tablespoons Butter (I put about 5 tbs. in...I love butter)

Optional - Marinara or Ranch, for serving

Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Add salt, olive oil and 2 1/2 cups flour. Attach dough hook to mixer, and kneed about 1 minute on medium low speed. Continuing on medium speed, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl, about 2 minutes. If dough is too dry add another 1/2 cup of water and continue to kneed. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease the top and bottom. Cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled. Punch dough down, and take a ping pong sized piece of dough and make an indention for the cheese and fill each with 2 tablespoons of cheese, then take all sides and pinch them together to completely close the cheese in the dough ball. Place pinched side down in a greased pan. Repeat until you have used all the dough. Melt the butter and then add the garlic and Italian seasonings and mix well. Brush butter mixture over top the bites and bake for 15 minutes in a pre-heated 450 degree oven, or until they start to turn golden brown
