 Garlic Bubble Bread1 loaf frozen white bread dough, thawed
¼   cup butter, melted
1   egg, beaten 
¼   tsp. salt 
1   T. parsley 
1   T. garlic powder

Cut thawed dough into walnut-sized pieces. Mix butter, beaten egg, salt, parsley and garlic powder. Dip pieces of dough into the mixture and put into a buttered loaf pan. Cover and let rise until it’s doubled in size. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool pan for 10 minutes and remove from pan.

Janelle’s notes: This is so good when it’s still warm, but also toasted if there’s any leftovers! I have always made two loaves, so one can always be frozen for later.
