    I made this bread for a family gathering and found it to be very easy to make and VERY tasty! I followed the recipe exactly and I don't believe I would change a thing except maybe to add a bit of Parmesan cheese to the butter mixture. And since it uses the frozen bread dough there's no mess from making "from scratch" yeast dough. I give this recipe 5 stars for sure!

    Family enjoyed this tasty change from regular homemade bread. We finished the whole loaf between 4 of us. Will make again.

    Simple & tasty! You can even make this in a pizza oven with an aluminum pan!

    Thank you Carol for a delicious recipe. I made this bread today and am serving it with Chili for supper tonight. I opted to use a bread machine dough recipe for buns as the bread base. After the dough was ready I continued on with your recipe. I will definitely be making this awesome recipe many times.

    Like KristineChayes, I used fresh parsley and increased the garlic powder. I used whole wheat dough. This is easy to make. We had the bread with stew and I reheated the rest to go with our pasta dinner. (I wrapped the leftovers in HD foil, refrigerated it, and reheated it...came out like just baked!) Thanks for the recipe.

    I've made this pull-apart bread loaf many times. I double the amount of garlic powder and salt and use 2 Tbs. of chopped fresh parsley. The recipe is simple and quick and my family loves it! Thank you, Carol, for sharing it.

    We really didn't like this very well. It wasn't very flavorful.
