Gorgeous recipe! The bread was so delicious. I did it in a tube pan and it worked perfectly!

Delicious! The only change I made was to put fresh garlic through a press and use it instead of garlic powder. Yum!

I just made this last night and everyone loved it. Next time I would change out the garlic powder for garlic salt. And, I didn't have any butter left to top the loaves, so I would heat up a little more and spread over the top. Also served with marina sauce for an appetizer.

VERY TASTY - BUT I' have made this 3 times thus far & it hasn't come out slicable yet. Each one of the "balls" comes off the loaf like "monkey bread"- granted, baking is not my forte - so what am I doing wrong??

This was a great bread recipe although it does take a lot of time to assemble. I did find that 24 balls per loaf was a bit too much. I would make the same size balls (24 per loaf) but use 18 in each loaf pan and the 12 left over in a smaller loaf pan. Wonderful flavor and my guests raved about it asking for the recipe. I froze one loaf to enjoy later. Oh, I did not have garlic powder so put 3 cloves of garlic through a a press and used that along with fresh parsley which I chopped up fine.

I tried it and when I sliced it, it looked like regular bread except for the smell-(smells garlicky without the taste. Not garlicky enuf. Its a good looking bread unsliced. Otherwise its just bread.

Bezzianne I was trying to figure out how to make with already made dough and you solved my problem of how to make it taste great by putting garlic in the butter! How many rolls did you use to make it? I love Rhodes rolls and plan to use those instead of by scratch. I have trouble with my arm due to lymphadema and knew I could not go thru the mixing and kneading.Thanks Lynn Nichols for great recipe!!!

Got a question--could this not be done in the breadmaker until you are ready for the punching down and shaping steps? Think I will try it and see. BTW, it sounds delicious!
