This cheesy bread is good enough on its own, but some people might like the option of a dip.

I would suggest adding a bowl of marinara sauce for dipping.

If you have any other suggestions for dips that would go well with this bread, please let us know.

This sounds delicious. The flavors kinda remind me of a biscuit that my mom bakes, but with a couple of variations. Love the idea of putting scallions in it.
