This Halloween, I decided to make a stuffed pull apart bread super creepy. The filling is made with cream cheese, Turkey Bacon, hot Sauce, Olives & Parsley. The super airy yeast dough is divided and stuffed with the filling. Normally this makes a great party appetizer, but for Halloween it got a green egg wash and a creepy eye made with little Quail eggs.

If you don’t want to use Quail Eggs (they can be a pain to peel), you can use anything else that will hold up to heat.
