Basil and oregano come through in every bite of these soft and tender pull-apart rolls. I think they go great with special dinners, but also make a nice addition to breakfast. —Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, Michigan

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. In a small bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, basil, oregano and garlic powder. In a large bowl, mix sugar, yeast, salt and 1-1/2 cups flour. Place oats in another small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring water and butter just to a boil; pour over oats. Let stand until mixture cools to 120°-130°, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add to flour mixture; beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Add egg; beat 2 minutes longer. Add 3/4 cup of herb mixture; beat until combined. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough (dough will be sticky).
  3. Punch down dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Punch dough down and press evenly into a greased 13x 9-in. baking pan. Using a sharp knife, cut diagonal lines 1-1/2 in. apart completely through dough. Repeat in opposite direction, creating a diamond pattern. Cover with a kitchen towel; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 375°. Brush dough with 3 tablespoons melted butter. Bake 15 minutes. Brush with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining herb mixture. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until golden brown. Serve warm.
