This was filmed the second week of March, 2020.
Farideh makes this cheesy and slightly spicy pull-apart bread in her home kitchen. Cheddar cheese, jalapeños, and bacon are the stars of this savory monkey-bread show. The dough comes together with just a few pantry ingredients and the fillings bring the flavors of your favorite bar appetizer to your home.
