Very good. Instead of garlic salt, I added a minced clove of garlic and some kosher salt. You could leave out the cheese. Cut strips with a pizza cutter.

I couldn't find any frozen bread dough and used French Bread in a tube. NOT a good substitute and they came out hard, tasteless and dry. I also over-cooked them, but the French Bread was not a good substitute. Too bad cause they look yummy.

This was so good, I'd give it 6 stars if I could! The spice combination is delicious, and these rolls come out of the oven looking like they came from a gourmet Italian restaurant.I made a few minor adjustments: Instead of 1/4 cup butter, I only used 2 Tbsp, while leaving the spice amounts as written. I thought 2 Tbsp worked fine, and the taste was still great! Also, in addition to the 3/4 cup mozzarella, I sprinkled in some grated Parmesan cheese because my family loves the taste.Soft, doughy, and cheesy, these are rolls I will definitely make again and again!
