Yummy Garlic Bread

Buttery Garlic Bread Ring:
Bren’s Recipe

1 Loaf frozen bread dough thawed & allowed to rise (or make your own)
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. parsley flakes
1 stick butter, melted (I use ½ stick)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In small bowl, beat egg and add parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt & parsley flakes, and mix to combine. Spray bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pull golf ball size pieces of dough off the risen bread dough. Roll in egg mixture and set them around the bottom of the bundt pan. Allow resting for 1/2 hour and it will rise again slightly. Bake in oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown on top. Meanwhile, in small saucepan, melt 1 stick of butter. When bread comes out of the oven, immediately drizzle or brush butter on the bread, covering it evenly. It will sizzle or bubble and look like the bread is drowning in butter but, don't worry, in about 1 minute, it will soak into the bread.

Notes: This removes easily out of the pan and you can either butter the cut bread slices or place melted butter in the center of the bread & use to dip the bread.
*This can also be made in a loaf pan (But, I think the bundt pan is better). Set balls of dough in lines of three going down the bottom of the pan. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until golden brown on top. Drizzle or brush the top with the butter. Serve warm right out of the oven. Slice to serve.
