Herb Bubble Bread
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. + cooling
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 3/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
- 1/8 teaspoon each dried thyme, basil and rosemary, crushed
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
- In a small bowl, combine cheese and seasonings. In another bowl, combine butter and garlic; set aside.
- Divide dough into 16 pieces. Roll into balls. Coat balls in butter mixture, then dip in cheese mixture. Place in a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan.
- Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Bake at 350° for 22-26 minutes or until golden brown. (Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly.) Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.

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 good. Even my finicky nephews kept sneaking back to get more. I would rate 5 stars but my stars are missing.....

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 have made this recipe at least 4 times in the six months. It's already a family favorite. I even shared it on my food blog. Check it out at jonesin4taste.blogspot.com.

Delicious, quick and fun to eat. We substituted the frozen dough with our favorite white bread dough from scratch!
