I got 25, 45-gram (1 1/2-ounce) rolls with this recipe. I'm very happy, both with the texture and the flavor. I did make the dough in my bread machine, but it rose very quickly, and I had to remove it 15 minutes early, because it was threatening to overflow. I did make a few substitutions, but I don't think they changed the basic recipe. I used fresh garlic, minced, cooked in 1 tablespoon olive oil, and cut the butter back from 2 tablespoons to 1 tablespoon. I also used 1 1/2 tablespoons honey in place of the 2 tablespoons sugar, because honey is supposed to help bread stay fresh longer. Honey is sweeter than sugar, so I reduced the amount. I also used dried basil and oregano, 50-50, instead of Italian seasoning. Thank you very much for sharing this very versatile recipe with us. I will be making it again.
