Parmesan Rolls

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by Kim D.

I serve these rolls with spaghetti and meatballs, to give us a change from the usual garlic bread. However, they would be good with other main entrees as well. (Prep time includes letting the dough rise)

These were very good and very different. The crunch that that the cornmeal gives is great. The whole family enjoyed these. The only thing that I changed was throwing in a bit of garlic. I had enough left over that I froze them and will be having the rest later in the week. Thanks for a real keeper.
