Sometimes we all need an evening in front of the TV; a sofa night watching a film is sometimes the only remedy for a hard week! Whether it’s just me and my husband or the whole family snuggled up, this pull-apart garlic bread recipe is a frequently-requested film night treat. It’s also a brilliant, communal start to a big family meal or dinner party too though, so don’t relegate it entirely to movie night fare - it definitely holds its own at the dining table.

Perhaps the best pairing for it, though, is my spicy feta dip - you can thank me for that recommendation later!
