Cheddar Cloverleaf Rolls

When my sister came to visit, she requested homemade macaroni and cheese. I decided I would make some rolls too. I was allowing the yeast to proof while I was assembling the macaroni and cheese I accidentally dropped a little bit of cheddar into the cup of yeast. I figured it would be a good addition to the batch of rolls. I liked the addition a lot. These were very popular. There were no rolls left for later. I even made a lot. Good thing I took some photos before serving them for dinner.
