One-Pot Stuffed Yeast Rolls 3 Ways: BBQ Beef, Bacon Mozzarella, And Zesty Chicken

Baking bread is the new cool thing, but even that can get a little stale sometimes. To make things more interesting, we've got a brand new idea for you: stuffed rolls that you bake right on the stove! With 3 different fillings, these will be the most delicious rolls you've ever eaten, guaranteed.

You'll Need:

For the yeast dough:

  • 5 cups flour
  • 0.67 oz fresh yeast (⅓ of a 2 oz cube)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1¼ cups lukewarm water

For the BBQ beef filling:

  • 8 oz ground beef
  • 4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tbsp BBQ sauce
  • olive oil

For the bacon mozzarella filling:

  • 4 oz bacon
  • 4 oz shredded mozzarella
  • olive oil

For the zesty chicken filling:

  • 8 oz chicken
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • egg whites for the egg wash
  • sesame seeds
  • flax seeds
  • black sesame seeds

Here's How:

1. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water and mix the flour, vegetable oil, and salt together in a separate container. Knead the yeast water and flour mixture together and let the dough rise covered on the counter for 30 minutes.

2. While the dough rises, you can prepare the fillings for the rolls. For the BBQ beef filling, fry the ground beef in a bit of oil, let cool for a few minutes, and then mix with the shredded cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce.

3. For the bacon mozzarella filling, fry the bacon in a bit of oil, let cool, break into bite-sized pieces, and mix with the shredded mozzarella. 

4. For the zesty chicken filling, fry the chicken, let cool, mix with the diced onion and paprika, and season with salt and pepper.

5. Knead the yeast dough once more and divide it into small pieces, each of which should weigh about 1 ounce. Roll out the dough pieces into a flat circle and spoon a different filling into the middle of each dough circle.

6. Wrap the dough around the filling and roll into a ball. Coat each ball with the egg white wash and top with sesame seeds, flax seeds, or black sesame seeds.

7. Heat a large cooking pot over medium heat, press the stuffed rolls against the inside rim of the pot, cover with a lid, and let cook 10 minutes. Afterwards, remove the lid and place the pot upside down on the burner so the tops of the rolls turn golden brown. Don't worry about the rolls falling – they'll stick to the side of the pot! Alternatively, you can also bake them in an oven set to 350°F for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn on the broiler if they don't look as crispy as you'd like, but be sure to watch them carefully as they can easily burn under high heat. 

Making stuffed rolls yourself isn't that complicated, is it? With these delicious fillings you not only save yourself the mess of making a sandwich, but also the mess of eating one, which is especially nice if you're on the go. So whether you're parked inside or are out and about, make yourself some of these stuffed rolls and you'll be so glad you did!
