I was the one who originally had requested this recipe. They look very attractive and show good promise although I think there are some errors in the measurements. I was able to purchase 4.5 ounce packages of Hawaiian rolls, which contained 4 rolls in each (the current recipe says one 1/2 ounce pkg yet indicates 6 servings). Also, I peeled cloves of garlic and filled my 1/3 cup measure with them, which worked out to only about 12 cloves (and any more would have been far too many in the finished product). Next time, I would use regular white rolls, as the sweetish flavor of the Hawaiian didn't work as well with the cheese and garlic for us. I would also mince the garlic. I am leaving just a comment because I know the recipe poster submitted an untested recipe to fill my request.
