One of the items I really look forward to receiving in my mailbox, is my Taste of Home – Simple & Delicious magazine. This magazine is always full of wonderful recipes and beautiful photos. It’s also fun helping Sandy the kitchen sprite find her magic wand. (Those who read Taste of Home – Simple & Delicious know what I’m talking about) 🙂
While flipping through the March/April edition, I came across a recipe for Herb Bubble Bread. The recipe sounded really easy – it uses frozen bread dough – and since I’ve been battling a miserable cold for the past few days, I wanted something to make that would require very little preparation. So, I decided to make a loaf. 🙂
This bread may look a bit odd at first, but it’s really a lot of fun to eat, it tastes absolutely delicious, and all those herbs smell really wonderful while baking!
Herb Bubble Bread
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon dill weed
1/8 teaspoon each dried thyme, basil and rosemary, crushed
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 loaf (1 lb.) frozen bread dough, thawed
In a small bowl, combine cheese and seasonings. In another bowl, combine butter and garlic; set aside.
Divide dough into 16 pieces. Roll into balls. Coat balls in butter mixture, then dip in cheese mixture. Place in a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan.
Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 22-26 minutes or until golden brown. (Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly)
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
