Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread

Jeanne Benavidez


I don't remember where I found this recipe but it has been a favorite for years, especially when served with spaghetti.
This is the recipe as I got it but I have used different kinds of cheeses such as grated provalone, shredded jack and others when I didn't have what the recipe called for. All were great. Since I have never taken pictures of my dishes, I found this one on the internet to show you what it should look like.
