  • 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!
