Garlic Bubble Bread

 "Don't judge a book by it's cover." It's a saying we hear all the time. When we remember it's applied to all kinds of things. Worms turn into butterflies, goslings turn into geese. Despite our efforts, we base a lot of ideas from appearances and how things look. 
My sweet friends saw this and asked how long it took to make. They were expecting for me to say hours or something ridiculous. Don't be silly, that's not really my thing. This bread is very easy and impressive. There's only four ingredients! Not to mention it is super cheesy and delicious. It tastes like a bread you would expect to get at a restaurant but a little extra special.


24 regular sized Rhodes dinner rolls
1/3 cup butter or olive oil ( I used half and half)
3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning

First, thaw the rolls in the fridge or on the counter until they are soft and doughy. Combine the cheese and Italian Seasoning together.

Cut each of the rolls into four pieces. You can do this with either a knife or a pair of scissors. 

Plop 1/4 of a roll into the butter and roll it around a bit in a happy butter bath. Make sure the butter is not too hot or else it will be a gooey dough mess. Yuck!

 Roll the dough piece into the cheese and seasoning mix then place it into a pan. You can use any kind you like, just make sure there's enough room for the rolls to double in size. I like to use a 9 in spring form pan. It's easy to get out and pretty.

Just the the dough in there all willy nilly, it won't matter!Once all the dough pieces have been put into the pan, you should have some oil/ butter and cheese leftover. I sprinkled and drizzled both of these over the top to make sure each bite was super tasty. 

Let the dough rise until it is at least double in size, it should take about an hour or two. They look like little cheese pillows made for a delicious night of sleep!

Bake the bread for about 30 to 40 minutes in a 350 degree oven until the top is golden brown. 

Once the bread has cooled a bit, pop it out of the pan and onto a pretty plate. I like to add an extra drizzle of butter and Italian Seasoning for presenting it. Don't be afraid of this bread's pretty appearance, it is super easy!


  1. I don't see garlic in the ingredients or directions.

  2. Hi Janey! I use an Italian seasoning that has a super garlicky flavor. If yours doesn't, add in about a teaspoon of garlic powder. I had talked about this in a previous post, but I should have added it here, too. Thanks for visiting!
