When it comes to comfort food, the most cozy, comforting dishes involve three key ingredients: bread, cheese, and garlic. And lucky for you, this recipe includes all three! That’s right, my Cheesy Pull-Apart Garlic Bread is a cozy, comforting, and incredibly cheesy dish that is perfect to warm you up on a cool winter night, or entertain guests at all of your holiday parties! This dish is NOT gluten-free or dairy-free, but trust me when I say that it is worth it!
Friends, let’s be honest: when it comes to Thanksgiving, the best dishes are the ones that include bread. Whether we’re talking stuffing or bread rolls, to me, the bread is the best part. In my average, day-to-day life, I don’t tend to eat much bread- for no other reason than the fact that it can sometimes hurt my stomach. But when it comes to Thanksgiving I am all about the bread, and I never regret it after.
This recipe is incredibly special for a few different reasons. First, aside from the fact that it is absolutely decadent and delicious, this recipe also happens to be a collaboration between me and one of my best friends, Erin O’Brien. Erin and I became friends last year and not only is she an incredible and kind human, she is a very talented food and lifestyle blogger. When we were dreaming up the perfect holiday recipe, we came up with this cheesy, beautiful creation, and I am so excited to share it together!
This recipe is perfect for a simple and easy appetizer that requires little-to-no utensils to serve. Simply dig in to this delicious loaf and pull out a delicious, cheesy, garlic bread bite. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
Would you believe me if I told you that you only need 8 ingredients to make this recipe? It’s true!
Making this Cheesy Pull Apart Garlic Bread is simple and easy! Simply start by preheating your oven to 375 F. Next, you’ll want to cut your bread in the following way: use a serrated knife and cross-hatch the bread (aka, cutting diagonally in each direction), making sure not to slice the bread all the way through. If you get stuck, follow the video tutorial above!
Once your bread is sliced, place it on a foil-lined baking sheet. Then, melt your salted butter in a small bowl, and mix it together with the chopped garlic and parsley. Using a brush, brush the butter all over the bread, being sure to get inside all of the cut crevices / crosshatches.
Now is the fun part: time to stuff the bread! Stuff the crosshatches full of your cheeses, being sure to not miss any crevices. The more cheese, the merrier, so feel free to sprinkle some on top or use additional cheese, if desired!
Top with chives, then use a sheet of foil to cover the bread completely. Depending on the size of your loaf, you may need to to use two sheets!
Bake your loaf for 30 minutes, then unwrap and bake for an additional 5-10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden.
Once done, serve and enjoy! This recipe is best eaten the same day it’s made.
