“Found a recipe for a sweet pull apart, but wanted savoury & came up with this. It really is pretty versatile; feel free to use other ingredients such as olives, roasted peppers or artichokes. You could also use fresh herbs, different cheeses, & more or less ingredients to taste. Have fun and experiment! Times include roasting garlic & all proofing & cooking times.”
