5 scallions, chopped

10 basil leaves, chopped

5 cloves garlic, minced

Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

 Instructions:

 Cut  bread dough into small 1/2 inch cubes. Dust with flour to prevent them from sticking together. Set aside.

Butter and flour 6 small bundt pans. (You could also use a large bundt pan)

Melt the butter in a small bowl.

Combine the cheese, herbs, salt/pepper and garlic in a large bowl. Add the melted butter and mix together with a spoon. Toss in the cut dough and make sure it all gets a coat of the butter mixture. Start layering the cubes into the bundt pans until they are 3/4 of the way full. Let sit for 30 minutes for the dough to rise a little more and while they are rising, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place bundt pans into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until the bread and cheese is golden brown.
