Diabetic Cooking


Herb pull-apart bread

Preparation time: 20 minutes. Rising time: 2–4 hours depending on room. Baking time: 20–25 minutes. Thawing time: 1–1 1/2 hours.


  • 1 package (1 pound, 9 ounces) frozen roll dough
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded four-cheese blend (mozzarella, provolone, Romano, and Parmesan) or Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1/3 cup rehydrated sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Cooking spray


Partially thaw dough, then cut each roll into quarters. In a large bowl, stir together remaining ingredients (except cooking spray). Add bread cubes a few at a time and toss well to coat. Transfer coated bread cubes to a Bundt pan coated very well with cooking spray; distribute evenly in pan. Allow bread dough to sit in a warm place and rise until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake bread for about 20–25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown. If the top begins to get too dark, lay a piece of foil over it. Loosen baked bread from the pan using a dull knife and turn out onto a serving dish.

Yield: 20 servings. Serving size: 4 pieces (equivalent to 1 roll).
