Tear & share Hedgehog-style wild garlic bread

This hot, buttery and cheesy pull-apart bread is fabulous for sharing and has the social media world in raptures. You can use pretty much any crusty loaf, and can add chopped fresh or dried herbs; chilli; black garlic; or miso to the butter, amongst other things, to vary the results.

  2. Mix together the butter, chilli, if using, wild garlic and cheese. Press the mixture into the cuts in the bread.

  3. Fold the foil round the loaf, place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, opening up the foil for the last 5 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the top is crunchy. Serve warm.
