Garlic, Parsley and Cheesey bread bites

Garlic, Parsley and Cheese bread bites

Cheesy mini bites suitable for little hands and bigger hands alike! We thought these were really good paired with soup. Especially toasted and slathering on more LRC garlic & parsley butter. Our bubble loves it so much, I thought I’d misplaced some blocks when in fact they were being consumed at an alarming rate! (breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon snack… 😅)

These bites are so quick to make with just a short proving time. Best late night baking candidate.
