Cheese, herb and garlic pull apart

I'm a sucker for a freebie with a magazine. My latest acquisition, with the latest Better Homes and Gardens, is a small serving board with a chalkboard edge. It even come with the chalk! 

I don't buy magazines that often, most of the time I borrow from the library. I do still have a look see when I am in the supermarket, especially if it's wrapped and offering free goodies. 

Another of those times I've gone for the freebie, again in a Better, Homes and Gardens, there was a bar tin and recipe book. I'm not sure whether it was the lure of another recipe book or the tin that got me in with this one. Probably both, they saw me coming.

This recipe isn't by far the most tantalising recipe in the book, with drool worthy recipes as raspberry cheesecake, chocolate truffle log and smoked salmon terrine. 

It's a quick and easy bread, not unlike a savoury scone. Mighty tasty and one that is more likely cooked on a regular basis. If you don't have a bar tin, you can use a loaf or other small cake tin. 

It's perfect for pizza spreads, pasta and mopping up flavour in soups and casseroles. 

Lord knows, Spring hasn't gotten the memo to warm up yet in our neck of the woods. Just bring us some twenty degree days already!

The garden is starting to comply, with so much colour coming out and the fresh herbs are going gangbusters and looking gorgeous. I love using herbs from the garden, with them close to the back door, it is nothing to sneak out and snip some fresh parsley from my little potager garden. 

You will need:-

2 cups SR Flour
50grams butter or marg
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 cup grated cheese
3/4 cup milk

1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, chopped finely

Preheat oven to 200C.

Grease bar tin and line the base and sides with baking paper.

Rub butter into flour in a large bowl. 
Add onion and half of the cheese.Add milk and combine into a soft dough.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and form into a 35 cm log.
Cut log into 2.5 cm pieces.
Combine oil, remaining cheese, parsley and garlic in a bowl. Roll dough pieces in mixture to coat.
Arrange dough pieces in tin, season with salt and pepper.
Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.

Serve with a lashing of butter!


  1. Magazines with a gift, especially a beauty related gift, often find their way into my shopping basket too!

  2. ooh, sounds like a savoury monkey bread, yum! (I, too, am a sucker for magazine freebies, one of the best ones I ever got was a spatula from a now defunct magazine, still usable when I can find it from behind the drawers)

  3. Savoury bread..cheese..butter...fave combos! You are a GREAT cook!

  4. I love baking freebies with food magazines. They get me every time. That recipe looks stunning! Might have to try it.

  5. I love freebies with magazines! And these pull aparts look delicious, love recipes like this. Yum!

  6. That's a pretty cool freebie. I remember back when I lived in the UK the magazines came with SO MANY freebies. Sadly barely any do now, and the ones that do usually don't interest me.

  7. That pull-apart looks absolutely mouth watering. I haven't had much to eat today.... so now I'm really hungry!Sounds like a great little recipe book. My oven hasn't been working properly for ages and now I'm thinking it's about time I fixed it!!

  8. Those pull aparts look divine! And I love the cutting board too!

  9. Looks delicious and easy enough to make with my kids as we enjoy the second week of school holidays here in Melbourne! Thanks for the link-up; I've joined in for the first time this week :)

  10. That pull apart looks and sounds delicious! I love the tasty recipes found in magazines and online but rarely get around to making them unless I am looking for something in particular.

  11. I'm a bit like you with magazines. The last magazine i bought came with a bar of Lindt chocolate. And it was at the airport!


Thanks for so much visiting, and even more so for leaving a friendly comment!
