Oh. My. God. This recipe was so freaking amazing I have now fallen in love with actually making my own bread. If you enjoy being able to use your arms afterwards, though, I recommend bringing in a friend to trade turns while kneading. I was in pain. The perfect amount of garlic and spices and it PULLS APART. It's like monkey bread for the pasta lover.
Crack Bread I made this a little bit differently. I put white cheese in the slits and melted butter with homemade minced garlic, 1/2 C butter, salt, pepper and bacon pieces. Cooked on 350 for 15 minutes wrapped in foil and then 10 minutes unwrapped. It was to die for. KAREN
