Fluffy yeast bread swirled around salted butter, garlic, and herbs. Your favorite swirl loaf and your favorite garlic bread just became best friends.
We need to get something out of the way immediately: The butt of this bread is the best part.
But we’ll come back to that.
Actually, scratch that. I’m too intrigued by my own statement to move on from that.
*Yes, I just fascinated myself. *
Normally, the butt of the bread is…well, the butt of the bread. Kind of so-so, probably the piece that the least picky person in the family will eat, but not something you fight over. In my family, my dad is the bread-butt-eater. (<–That’s a weird phrase.) He will eat the end pieces gladly, as toast or sandwich, with no complaint. We also often liken his palate to those of our beagles.
