"This recipe was awesome. I did a test run first to make sure I would want them for Thanksgiving dinner. The herbs I used 1/4 teaspoon vs 1/8 teaspoon. Yes you could dinner rolls instead of loafs. They turned out beautiful and so delicious..great presentation. The picture doesn't do them justice.. I think the flavors of the herbs will completed the other food for an amazing blend of tastes for our Thanksgiving dinner. I will definitely fix them again.. and they will be served at every Thanksgiving dinner here on out."

"The first time that I made this I followed the recipe exactly. The herbs were a little strong for our taste so now I just cut back a little on the amounts used. I also add just a little butter to the sour cream mix. When I'm short on time I use frozen texas rolls instead of trying to slice a loaf of dough into equal portions -- unfortunately some of my slices are usually more equal than others."
