"I love this bread! I had to make another batch of the cheese mixture because I ran out halfway through coating the dough balls. I used fresh grated parmesan, fresh garlic, and about 1/2 tsp. of fresh rosemary, minced very finely, in the mixture with the other herbs. I didn't have any problem with the garlic burning, as another person did. Maybe it matters what type of pan you use? I used a glass pan. I wonder how it would turn out if I made more, smaller dough balls and used a tube pan? I'll try that next time. Super yummy, even cold."

"VERY flavourful, we loved it!! It calls for more of the cheese/herb mix then actually required, too much can be over powering so I cut it down a bit."

"This is really good bread. I have never used frozen bread dough before, and since I don't bake, I was a little nervous about it. But it was really easy and turned out great. You can easily change the herbs to suit your tastes. This made a wonderful bread dish for my Easter dinner. I'll definitely be making it again."

"I wish I would have used garlic powder instead - the minced garlic that was touching the pan burned and made this taste foul."
