I posted this in the cooking tips and questions area and didn't get any responses. Thought it might be hidden away there, so I am posting it here. Any input appreciated!!
************************************************** *****
I tried a spoon bread roll recipe this weekend. I found it in a magazine and since it contained chives, and I have some growing, I thought it would be a good way to use them.

THIS IS NOT A LOW CAL RECIPE! :D It is a savory herb roll and tasted very good.

[INTERESTING NOTE HERE: The recipe in the magazine states use 1 (1 1/4 oz.) envelope dry yeast. I'm guessing that is a typo now... When I looked up the recipe to post here, the link states 1 (1/4 oz.) envelope. I didn't have 1 1/4 oz. so used 3 (1/4 oz.) envelopes, thinking it would be enough. Do you think this is why mine turned out a bit heavy?]

I would probably use less chives next time as they tasted a little too oniony for me. It was a good way to get a home made taste (yeasty, etc.) without kneading, etc.

I was thinking they might be good with rosemary or other flavors. Especially was thinking of making a sweeter version of them.....maybe cinammon and nuts....or something else in a sweet flavor.

Here is the original recipe and if anyone can shed light on how to vary the flavors, it would be greatly appreciated.
