6. Chimichurri & Panko Parker House Rolls

This homemade version makes the classic rolls extra special.

There’s a mixture of breadcrumbs, parmesan, and chimichurri seasoning on top.

Parker House Rolls are classic dinner rolls that have been around since the late 1800s.

14. Indian Spiced Chickpea Flatbread {Socca}

Socca is a vegan and gluten-free chickpea flatbread from France. 

It’s mainly made from just three simple ingredients: chickpea flour, water, and olive oil.

What gives it an interesting flavor is a mix of Indian spices, such as turmeric, coriander, and cayenne.

The batter is cooked in a skillet, much like a pancake.

When it’s pan-fried, it becomes crispy on the outside and wonderfully spongy on the inside. 

Serve socca for dipping into curries and stews, or enjoy it by itself as a snack.

If you’re looking for the most irresistible party appetizer, look no further: cheese and garlic crack definitely hits the spot! 

It starts with a round sourdough that’s sliced into diamonds, although the slices don’t reach all the way through the bread. 

This creates “cracks” in the bread, into which a cheesy garlicky butter mixture is poured.

It’s an easy recipe that transforms an ordinary loaf of bread into a phenomenal centerpiece.
