Cheesy Garlic-Herb Pull Apart Bread

   A good bread is my weakness and appetizers are my favorite, so it wasn't hard at all to love the taste of this chewy, herb-flavored bread. The smell of garlic and herbs was heavenly and it was easy to tear off a chunk of this cheesy bread to munch on while mingling. 
  This dish was so good that it won best appetizer award at a recent holiday recipe contest. Congrats and thanks for sharing.
