12 frozen dinner rolls
6 (3/4-oz.) slices Land O Lakes® Deli Sharp Cheddar American, quartered
2 Tbsp. baking soda
1 tsp. sugar
6 cups water
1 Land O Lakes® Egg, slightly beaten
Coarse sea salt
Spray baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Place rolls onto sheet; cover lightly with plastic food wrap. Let rise at room temperature 1 1/2-2 hours or until completely thawed and rolls feel soft.
Stack 2 quarters cheese; fold in half. Fold in half again, forming small cube. Press cheese into center of roll; seal dough around cheese, pinching edges tightly. Repeat with remaining cheese and rolls. Place onto baking sheet; let rest 15 minutes.
Heat oven to 425ºF. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
Place water into large saucepan; bring to boil over high heat. Carefully add baking soda and sugar. (Water will bubble up, then return to a gentle boil.) Drop 4 rolls into gently boiling water; cook, turning once, about 30 seconds per side or until surface of dough has lightly bubbled appearance. Remove with slotted spoon; place onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining rolls.
Brush each roll with beaten egg; sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 3 minutes. Serve warm.
