Parmesean Rolls

I just used my Featherlite Bread recipe for these. In a seperate bowl I mixed parsley, garlic powder and parmesean cheese (no measurements, just to taste). These were made in my mini bundt pan, so I sprayed the pan, sprinkled a little of the seasonings in the bottom and then filled each mini bundt 2/3 full and topped it with more seasonings. Cover and let rise until double. I baked them at 325 degrees for 20 minutes.

Steamed Carrots with Dill and Brown Sugar
