Garlic Bread "Cinnamon" Rolls
These Garlic Bread "Cinnamon" Rolls are a fun and exciting way of making deliciously soft garlic bread for your next pasta dinner feast.
  • 1 cup lukewarm whole milk
  • 2¼ teaspoons (1/4-ounce packet) active dry yeast
  • 4½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1¾ teaspoons salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, diced
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons chopped garlic (fresh or jarred)
  • ¼ cup shredded or grated parmesan
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic (fresh or jarred)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  1. In a small bowl, combine the warm milk, yeast and about a teaspoon of the sugar. Set aside in a warm spot and let sit until foamy and frothy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the dough hook, combine the flour, milk mixture, sugar, salt, eggs and butter and mix on medium until it comes together. Knead on high for about 8 to 10 minutes, until smooth and somewhat soft. Transfer the bowl to a well-oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap and a damp kitchen towel. Let rest in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 1½ hours.
  3. Punch dough down and then transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Roll out into a large rectangle about ¼-inch thick. Spread evenly with the softened butter, and sprinkle with the chopped garlic, parmesan, paprika and parsley. Roll into a tight long, length wise, and then cut into 12 even pieces. Place on a well greased 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and a damp kitchen towel. Allow to rest in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  5. Bake the rolls until puffed and golden brown, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  6. Meanwhile, to make the topping, melt the butter in a small saucepan, set over low heat. Add the garlic and parsley and cook until the garlic has softened, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Brush over the warm buns and serve. Enjoy!
