Ingredients For cheesy pull-apart bread

  • 1
    round loaf of bread (sourdough is best, but others work too)
  • 6 Tbsp
    melted butter
  • 3 clove
    garlic, minced
  • 1/4 c
    fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 1/2 c
    mozzarella cheese

How To Make cheesy pull-apart bread

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2
    In a liquid measuring cup, melt butter, and add the garlic and half the parsley. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  • 3
    Cut slices in the bread both horizontally and vertically, but do NOT cut all the way through the bread. Leave about 1/2 an inch from bottom. Place bread on a sheet of tin foil.
  • 4
    Using your fingers, spread apart the bread slices while drizzling the butter mixture through-out. Try to get in as many crevices as possible.
  • 5
    Repeat this same action with the cheese, stuffing cheese in-between all the slices.
  • 6
    Then, sprinkle a little cheese and the remaining parsley on top.
  • 7
    Transfer bread with foil to a cookie sheet, and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until exposed bread is slightly browned and crusty, and cheese is nicely melted.
  • 8
    Remove from oven and let sit a couple minutes to cool slightly, then serve!
