Garlic Bubble Loaf Bread!

I can't believe I never posted this before. In my last post I said this was posted under breads, then I realized I never posted it! This in my opinion has to be the bestest bread recipe ever!! Even my brothers girlfriend who typically doesn't like the drive out to the boonies where I live will come if this bread is served. It is THAT good, I promise! I got the recipe from an old Taste of Home magazine some years back.

Garlic Bubble Loaf
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 cups bread flour
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp each of dried oregano, thyme and rosemary
In bread machine place first seven ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting(check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1-2 tablespoons water or flour if needed) When cycle is completed, divide dough into 36 pieces. Shape each into a ball. In a bowl, combine butter, garlic and herbs. Dip each ball in mixture; place in an ungreased loaf pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
