Garlic Herb and Cheese Pull-Apart Bread
- 5 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley
- 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 pound frozen bread dough, thawed
- 1/4 cup cheese, freshly grated Parmesan
*These values are approximate. Per serving, based on a 2,000 Calorie diet.
Lightly spray a 9-inch bread pan with cooking spray. In a small bowl combine the melted butter, parsley and garlic powder. Tear off pieces of the bread dough and roll into 1-inch balls. Dip the balls into the melted butter mixture and set in the bottom of the bread pan. Repeat until you've used all the dough, making sure the dough balls form a single layer in the bottom of the bread pan. Pour any remaining butter mixture on top of the dough balls. Sprinkle Parmesan over the top.
Set pan in a warm place and let rise 1 hour, or until bread is just higher than the top of the bread pan. Bake at 325ºF for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown on top and cooked through. If the bread seems to be browning too quickly, tent with aluminum foil towards the end of the cooking time. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Serve warm, or at room temperature.
*Note: You may want to set a baking sheet underneath the bread pan to catch any drips of butter.
