Pull-Apart Herb Bread

THE INGREDIENTS for this recipe are so simple and the results so spectacular, I'm always willing to share the secret. It's actually a variation of a doughnut recipe I made years ago, using refrigerated biscuits. The best part of having this bread is tearing it apart and eating it warm. -Evelyn Kenney, Hamilton, New Jersey

    Discovered this years ago when it was first printed. Loved it then and love it now. Have used it for many family meals and parties. Always loved by all and there is never enough. Have also made with homemade biscuits. Fantastic.

    A great quick cheese bread for when you're running short on time. I halfed the recipe, left out the fennel, added parmesan and mozzarella cheese, and cooked it in a round cake pan. Turned out great!

    I made this when I needed a last-minute bread to take to a friend's for dinner. I didn't measure the cheese, and I also added Parmesan cheese and black pepper. I didn't have fennel either, so I left that out, but we all loved it! I'd definitely make it again.
