Although these fluffy sweet-savory breakfast rolls are traditionally prepared with pork lard, most Philippine cooks nowadays use butter instead. Dutch Edam cheese is sprinkled inside and on top of the dough, offering a subtle counterpoint to the bread's sweetness; for a more savory roll, add extra cheese. To make these rolls, you will need ten 5 1⁄2" fluted brioche molds.
