Using your favorite bread, roll, or challah dough recipe or even a defrosted purchased frozen dough you can turn it into this beautiful savory herbed center piece. We especially like to use this for Sukkot.
In a large skillet over medium heat warm olive oil garlic powder and onion flakes. Saute for about 3 minutes until spices cook. Turn off heat, add parsley flakes and mix. [Don't be afraid to experiment with your favorite seasonings.].
Divide dough into about 14 pieces. Coat each piece of dough with the herb mixture on all sides.
In an ungreased tube pan, place pieces of dough in single file, side by side in a circle around pan. Do not stack dough on top of each other, squeeze them in if necessary. Pour remaining oil evenly over the top of the dough. Cover with a clean towel and let rise 2nd time according to dough recipe.
Prepare oven by placing aluminum foil as a liner over lower rack to catch any drips. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place dough on middle rack. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden. Bread will puff up like a big mushroom.
Let cool in pan. When removing from pan, wrap with foil to secure bottom of bread so it won't fall apart.
