Yesterday I posted my recipe for the Best Ever Homemade Sandwich Bread. In the recipe, it only takes 1/2 of the dough to make a loaf. Instead of just baking two loaves, I decided to take one half of the dough and make Pull Apart Bread.
Now, if you don't have bread dough laying around, or don't want to make any, you can still make this recipe by using thawed frozen dinner roll dough. The plus side of using the dinner roll dough is that it comes already shaped into balls, so you will be able to skip several steps .
First, we start with 1/2 of our dough from yesterday, (If you are using pre-shaped dough balls, please skip ahead)
Next, divide the dough into 16 pieces by dividing the dough into half, and then each half into half again, etc. until you have 16 pieces. They should be as close to even as possible, but it doesn't have to be exact. Shape each piece into a ball. Notice that mine are not exactly even nor are they perfectly round. It will still come out gorgeous and delicious.
Put 7 or 8 of the dough balls into the bottom of a greased bread pan. Brush the dough balls with melted garlic butter (Just melt butter or margarine with a pinch of garlic salt and Italian Seasoning).
Put the remaining bread balls on top of the first layer, and brush with more garlic butter. Sprinkle lightly with Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
Cover and allow to rise in a warm place (I sit it on the back of the stove) while you preheat the oven to 375 degrees. After bread has risen for 30 minutes, bake for 30-35 minutes, until top is well browned.
Now just see if you can get it to the dinner table without a piece missing. . . I couldn't. ;)
