Who doesn’t love Cheesy Garlic Bread? It’s a family favorite around here, and one of my favorite ways to make it is as a Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Campbell’s Soup Company . All opinions are 100% mine.
It looks like a complicated thing to make, but it’s really easy to make. It goes with so many dishes, and it’s great for parties because it’s cut up so small.
What do you need to make Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread?
You’ll need a loaf of crusty bread. I prefer sourdough, but you can get fresh baked crusty loaves like Italian or Tuscan bread at most grocery stores.
You’ll also need mozzarella cheese. For this, I prefer the fresh mozzarella. You can usually find it near the deli, and it’s in pre-sliced logs or small balls. I prefer fresh because it melt so beautifully. But, if you can’t find, then low moisture mozzarella or even string cheese, with all the cheeses, is fine.
You’ll also need minced garlic and butter.
For the garlic, I like to keep a jar of roasted garlic on hand. I love roasting it myself. This easy recipe will make you fall in love with roasted garlic. But, when I’m out, I will just use regular garlic from my giant jar of minced garlic, and it works just fine.
For the butter, I like to use a sea salt butter. I think it adds to the flavor. But, regular salted butter is fine.
Lastly, you need parsley. If you don’t have any, this recipe will be fine without it. It’s just a nice pretty color to add to all that white.
How do you make Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread?
Begin by slicing the bread both horizontally and vertically, but not all the way through the entire loaf. This will create tiny pull apart squares.
Next, combine the butter, garlic and parsley and melt it in the microwave and give it a good stir.
Pour the garlic butter mixture over the entire loaf. Gently pull apart the bread squares, so the butter can fall deep inside the loaf.
Cut the mozzarella into chunks and tuck it into the bread slices all over the loaf.
Wrap the entire loaf in foil and 15 minutes.
Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes before serving.
Then, it’s ready to eat!
I like to serve it with a couple little ramekins of marinara sauce and alfredo sauce.
Can you make this pull apart bread up ahead of time?
You can definitely make it up ahead of time and put it in the fridge before baking. Then when you’re ready to serve it, bake it for a few extra minutes since it’s been cold in the fridge.
How do you store the leftover Pull Apart Bread?
I would recommend putting in a ziplock bag or sealed container in the fridge. Then when you’re ready to eat it, just heat it up for a few seconds in the microwave.
