Tsoureki – Greek Easter Bread

I made a cheeseboard for Christmas and there was a bit leftover. No biggie, but unfortunately not every cheese was in the shape to be put on a sandwich. So I made pizza style cheeseboard bites out of the leftovers.
We spawned a new sourdough yesterday, now let’s use it to bake a fluffy and healthy bread with 4 different grains.
