Mini Garlic and Parmesan Bubble Breads

I am already dreaming of breaking my fast on these and the fast is still a few days away. But what could be better then a big ole bite of these cuties? They are like cheesy garlic bread only cuter and just the thought of these makes me do a happy dance. If making bread is not your thing you can make this using frozen or pre-made refrigerator dough but of course there is nothing like fresh and one of the good things about this bread is you just have to roll the dough into balls- no fancy braiding- so that makes things easier. So bottom line, if the thought of bread dipped in a buttery,garlicky, Parmesan-y mixture and then baked with more Parmesan on top appeals to you then make these. If it doesn't appeal to you, than I'm not sure how we are friends to begin with. Enjoy!

Makes about 18 mini buns
For the dough:
1 1/2 cups warm milk or water  (make sure it's warm NOT hot)
2 1/4 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
5 cups flour
Dipping Mixture:

1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup olive oil
6 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tbl dried parsley
1 Tbl dried chives
1 cup Grated Parmesan cheese, divided
salt and pepper

Mix the butter, garlic, parsley, chives and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Season it with salt and pepper.

In a mixer place the warm milk and sprinkle in the yeast and mix well. Add the eggs and mix again. Mix the flour and salt together and add it in mixing at low speed. The dough will be a little sticky. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and let rise in a warm place until it doubles. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Make small walnut size balls and dip each into the  butter mixture. Place three balls into each tin, drizzle each with the remaining butter mixture and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of Parmesan. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden making sure they do not over bake.
