Pretty good bread. I used 1 loaf from a 3-loaf bag of Rhodes frozen loaves. Since I only baked 1 loaf, I only made half the recipe. After the bread raised for 5 hours, I sliced it into 14 pieces with a bench knife (7 horizontal cuts and 1 down the middle lengthwise). I stacked my pieces in a loaf pan (with filling in the middle and top, of course) and baked for 35 minutes. There was no excessive butter. This bread reminded me of pizza crust.

I've made this for years, and it is always a hit. I use the frozen Bridgeford bread (one loaf defroasted). Takes more time, but rises nicely. I let it rise twice - before and after the ingredients.

My family loves this bread. It goes well with everything. I have also made it using crescent roll dough instead biscuit dough.

I love this bread. I have made it many times and goes well with soups and chilies. I modify it only by dipping the bread pieces into the melted butter.

EVERYONE loves this bread. I cut the recipe in half and put it in a bread loaf pan which makes the perfect amount.

Very good, but I would reduce the amount of melted butter next time. When I turned the pan over to place it on the wire rack, hot melted butter spilled all over my marble countertop!!
