36

  • 3 Meanwhile, place rinsed parsley leaves on paper towels; pat dry. With kitchen scissors, cut stems from leaves.
  • 4 In custard cup, beat egg and water with fork. Brush mixture over top of each roll. Dip parsley leaves into egg mixture; place 3 leaves on top of each roll. Brush remaining egg mixture over parsley-topped rolls.

Expert Tips

Any fresh flat-leaf herb, such as dill weed, sage or marjoram, can be substituted for the Italian parsley.

Place the parsley leaves close together on the rolls; they'll shrink during baking, increasing the space between them.
