  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan.
  • Roll and stretch thawed frozen bread dough into a 12 inch square, on lightly floured board.
  • In a small bowl, combine softened butter, parsley, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Spread evenly over the 12-inch square of rolled bread dough. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup of the parmesan cheese, pressing lightly.
  • With a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into 16 small squares. Make four stacks of four squares each.
  • Place each stack on it's side in the prepared loaf pan. Gently separate the squares so the dough fills the pan and the squares are touching. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup parmesan cheese over the assembled loaf.
  • Cover the loaf loosely with plastic wrap and set the loaf in a warm place until the dough rises by half it's size, about 2 hours.
  • Bake the loaf until browned and cooked thru, about 45-50 minutes. Tent with foil if browning too quickly.
  • Let cool 15 minutes in the pan, then loosen the sides with a knife. Transfer the loaf to a plate and let cool an additional 30 minutes before serving.


Note- 2 TBSP of fresh snipped parsley may be substituted for the dried parsley.
Note - if using salted butter, omit the pinch of salt in the recipe.
Note - reduce or omit the red pepper flakes if you don't care for spicy bread
