What a great recipe, Mandy! We all loved these garlicky and yummy rolls! They had a lovely soft interior and were so crunchy on the top. YUM!
For an extra garlic touch, I used some garlic butter in place of the ordinary one and it turned out fab!
I made half the recipe, which gave me 3 big rolls. They needed 5 more minutes in the oven than stated, but other than that were perfect.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this superb recipe with us, Mandy!

We had this with Crock Pot Beef Stew by Katzen which was perfect to mop up the juices. I did add 3 cloves of garlic but the flavour still did no come through (we love our garlic). Would suggest just 3/4 cup of milk/water total, had to add about 1/4 cup of flour to get to a soft dough. Thoroughly enjoyed and DH has asked to be served again (with extra garlic) with stew/casserole. Thank you Mandy from Oz.

The flavor was excellent, however I had problems with the dough when adding the liquid it wasn't enough and I had to add more.I like the addition of the fresh chives that was a really nice addition. Other than my own issues with the water, which has no bearing on the recipe itself they were excellent! We enjoyed them with a bowl of clam chowder. Thanks for a great one!
