35 to 45 minutes

Bake Time

20 to 25 minutes

Ingredients


  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour (OR substitute 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup all-purpose)
  • 1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups very warm water (120º to 130ºF)
  • 1 tablespoon Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup minced celery
  • 2-1/2 cups quartered fully cooked, frozen Buffalo style boneless chicken nuggets, thawed
  • For Dipping (optional):
  • Ranch OR blue cheese dressing

Directions


Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in large mixer bowl.  Add water and oil; beat 2 minutes on medium speed.  Gradually add remaining 1-1/4 cups flour to make a stiff yet sticky dough.  Stir in blue cheese, celery and chicken.  Cover bowl and let rest 10 minutes.

Portion dough into 12 (2-1/2 inch) generously greased muffin cups using a scoop or two spoons (do not use paper liners). Cover and let rise 35 to 45 minutes.  Dough will rise, but will not double in size.

Bake in preheated 375ºF oven for 20 to 25 minutes until well browned.  Let cool on wire rack for 2 minutes.  Run a knife around each roll to remove from pan.  Serve warm with ranch or blue cheese salad dressing for dipping.  Refrigerate any leftovers.

Freezer Instructions:  Completely cool fluffins and place in an airtight container to freeze.  Thaw in the refrigerator.  Microwave for 15 to 20 seconds and serve immediately.
