  1. Combine the 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl. Warm the milk, water and butter to 120°F - 130°F in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until combined. Beat in egg until well combined. Add remaining flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until dough clears sides of bowl (dough will be sticky).
  2. Knead dough in mixer or turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead for 6-8 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place dough into a greased bowl. Flip to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1-2 hours.
  3. Punch dough down. Knead a few times by hand. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface into a 15 x 10-inch rectangle, about 1/4-inch thick.


  1. Combine the 8 tablespoons butter, 1 1/2 cups cheddar gruyere, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. Spread butter mixture on dough to within 1/2 inch of edges.
  2. Roll up dough, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Cut into 12 slices. Place slices cut side down into a greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until light golden brown.
  4. Melt remaining butter; brush over rolls. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar gruyere. Bake for 4-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley.
