I couldn't resist a little butter on it right out of the oven.

Came out great! I did follow the other reviewers suggestions in increasing the water temp for the yeast, waiting 10min for the yeast to activate and then letting the dough rest for more than 2hrs after kneading.

Been wanting to make these for a while now. Just used fresh rosemary (because I love it so much). Making it with Robs Cod Au Gratin on BigOven. Great tasting roll! Thanks for posting!

Tasted really good. Except I had to let the rolls rise for at least 2 or 3 hours.

I dock 1 star because of the yeast instructions. If you do it as is the bread doesn't rise. Water for Yeast temp needs to between 110-115. You also need to let the yeast rise and double. I did it twice the original way the bread did not rise and was like a biscuit. The second was with what I stated the bread rose and was more fluffy like a roll. Other than that awesome flavor!

Texture ended up more like a biscuit. Maybe my yeast didn't work so well...
