 Vacations, we all need them from time to time.  Our family just came back from Maui, HI where we attended the wedding of my Husband's niece Megan and her fiance Adri.  Wishing Megan and Adri the very  best in their new life together.
 This was the first 'family' vacation out of the country since my youngest was 5 (he is now 25).  We were all very excited to travel together and after a few delays arriving in Maui to sunny skies and warm temperatures.
Now that we are back home it's time to start creating.

Herb & 3 Cheese Rolls

The ingredients you will need.

The dough has risen and I've rolled it out and oiled with 
a bit of olive oil.

All three cheeses  (feta, old cheddar and Parmesan) have been
 sprinkled on the oiled dough and herbs have been added.

Cutting the rolls into 2 inch slices.

Rolls are placed on some parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
Let these rise for 30 minutes 

The rolls have risen nicely.
  The oven is set to 400 and then I turned it  up to 425 for the last 10 minutes.

 Freshly baked  Herb and 3 Cheese Rolls right out of the oven.

 Herb & 3 Cheese Rolls Recipe

For the dough, you can use your favorite bread or roll recipe. 
 I used Mom's Bread recipe found in this blog (December, 2012)  
  I  used a third of the bread dough recipe ( approximate) and used a rolling pin to form a rectangle.
Grate your cheeses, I used old cheddar, Parmesan and Feta cheeses.  Rub some olive oil on the rolled out bread dough and sprinkle the dough with your cheeses, then top with herbs of your choice.  I used my home grown dried oregano and basil as well as some granulated garlic.  On half of the dough I sprinkled chopped black olives (had some in the fridge from pizza night).  Roll the dough 'jellyroll style' seal the ends and slice into 2 inch pieces and arrange on a parchment  lined cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart. 
Let rise for 30 more minutes.  Turn oven to 400. When  rolls have doubled in size put them in the middle rack of your oven and  bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden.
Serve with a  bowl of  soup or just as a snack or with a salad.

but what you have in your 'HEART'....
