    Followed recipe exactly. Perfect! I disagree with others about doubling the herbs. The amount of herbs called for gave the bread a subtle savoriness. Anything more would have been overpowering.

    Made this good today, was ok. I suggest doubling the spice and cheese mix. Before I made it, I was planning on serving with a chicken dinner. Now that dinner is over, I think this would be better as an appetizer with marinara sauce. I do like it.

    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.
