Does garlic kill yeast in bread?
Yes, I wouldn’t recommend adding garlic when kneading the dough. It’s better to add it when the dough has risen. And if talking about this recipe, we use store-bought bread.
So, garlic won’t make it worse. Moreover, you will get a very fragrant tasty pull-apart bread.
What cheese goes with sourdough bread?
You can use any melting cheese for this recipe. For me, the best melting cheese is Mozzarella, Cheddar, Monterey Jack, and Swiss.
By the way, you can mix cheeses and use two types of cheese to make this pull-apart bread. Also, you can use any of your favorite cheese, but be sure it melts well and will go well with garlic.
How do you reheat garlic bread?
It’s okay if you have leftovers, or if you have prepared garlic bread and your guests haven’t come yet. There are two ways to reheat pull-apart bread – in the microwave and in the oven.
Microwave. Just heat bread without foil until warm. Do not overheat. Oven. Preheat oven to 350°F. Wrap leftovers or whole garlic bread in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 mins or until warm.
Why does my bread crack on top?
It’s okay if you have a big crack in the pull-apart garlic and cheese bread after the cheese has melted. Maybe, you damaged the cracks when filling them with cheese and widened them.
This pull-apart bread is really very simple, you can just pull bites and eat it. So feel free to try and enjoy it!
