Reviews for Veggie Pull-Apart Bread
"Based on the reviews, I made some tweaks. For the veggies, I used ratatouille from my freezer (sauteed eggplant, onions, tomatoes, and garlic with rosemary and thyme). Instead of bacon, I used pepperoni. In the bread dough I substituted ranch dressing instead of sour cream and olive oil instead of butter. It came out flavorful!"
"I followed this recipe to the letter and it turned out looking exactly like the photo. It's a good base to start with but we found it lacking in flavor and at best so so. I found that surprising because the recipe looked like it'd be very good. Maybe with a few alterations it would be much better but I doubt I will make it again since it takes so much time to make. I'm sorry I really did want to like it but it just lacks that wow factor. It would however be pretty good with a nice bowl of soup or stew."
"This was delicious. I might try making a jalapeno-cheese bread with this dough recipe next time."
"Yummy, and so easy!"
