this looks good and it sounds easy to make

great garlic flavor

These rolls turned out very moist and to me just the right amount of garlic, but we love garlic flavor. I used whole wheat flour and they still had a light texture. Great with pasta dinner for dipping in sauce.

Just got my first bread machine and tried garlic dinner rolls in it. Yummy ! They didn't last long in our house!

These rolls are easy to make and came out great! I don’t have a bread machine so I made them by hand and they still turned out perfect. My family loved them. This recipe is a keeper.

Long Ago

by B. BEV , GULFPORT, MS on Nov. 2008

Many years ago,before bread machines, I had a similar bread recipe and made it at least twice a week. During all the moves a military family makes, I lost my recipe, so I started buying bread. Now many years later I am very excited to find it,again, and make them for Thanksgiving dinner. I can hear my guests now....MMMMMMMMMMMM!

Additional variations...

With my busy schedule, this recipe was unnecessarily fussy. I added twice the garlic, used reg. flour(1/4 less)and totally skipped the egg wash at the end. They were soft and delicious and they were still good the next day too!

Excellent Garlic Buns

by J. Joyce , Blind Bay, BC on Apr. 2008

Man do I like these - they are easy and quick to prepare and everyone loved them. They make the house smell so good. Everyone that has had them can't get enough, so I end up making two batches. They are super!!!!!!!

I must've done something incorrectly...

by N. Nancy , WELLINGTON, OH on Mar. 2008

after reading the rave reviews I just had to try these however they did not come up to the caliber of rolls that everyone else gave in their reviews. The flavor just wasn't there and the garlic powder was quite fresh. Perhaps fresh garlic would be a suitable substitute. Also if anyone has suggestions on convedrting this from bread machine to the old fashioned kneading and rising method, it would be helpful.
