- Make the dough: Mix yeast and sugar with warm milk and keep it covered in the bowl.
- Beat the butter, egg, salt, garlic powder, and rosemary together and add it to the yeast bowl. Mix well.
- Gradually add flour and combine them for 3 minutes. Dough will be soft. Transfer it to a lightly floured work surface. Using lightly floured hands, knead it for 1 minute. Shape into a ball.
- Place the dough in a greased bowl and covered and place in a slightly warm area to rise until doubled in size, around 60-90 minutes.
- Make the filling: In a medium bowl, mix the soft butter, rosemary, parsley, garlic, and salt together. Cover tightly and set aside until ready to use.
- Assemble the bread: Punch down the dough to release the air. Place dough on a lightly floured work surface.
- Divide it into 12 equal pieces, each about a little larger than a golf ball. Using lightly floured hands, flatten each into a circle that’s about 4 inches in diameter. The circle doesn’t have to be perfectly round.
- Spread 1-2 teaspoons of filling mixture onto each. Sprinkle each with 1 Tablespoon of cheese.
- Fold circles in half and line it in prepared baking pan, round side up.
