A very attractive snack, which wins your heart not only with its wonderful herby flavour but also with its unique form! The Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart French Bread involves a tactful way of cutting the bread (shown in the image below), which lets you pull it apart upon baking, giving way to the gooey cheese filling that has strong shades of garlic and oregano.

This can be served as a starter along with soup or with pasta as part of the main course.
