Pull Apart Cheesy Garlic Bread Recipe

The thing I love most about this three-ingredient pull apart cheesy garlic bread is how little you need to get the job done. Garlic spread and cheese are the only two things you need to enhance an ordinary loaf of bread. The result is mind-blowing.

Once you start doing this you will want to make it a regular pre-meal snack. If you don’t know, pull apart bread is exactly like it sounds. You serve it up whole and everybody at the table picks at it by pulling it apart and taking a piece. The gooey melted cheese that holds the pieces together makes the pull apart bread with cheese effect even better.

The key is great ingredients and a little bit of technique which I will share with you here before you make this recipe. There are only a few simple steps to follow to make this easy pull apart garlic cheese bread, which you can buy at the bakery section of your local grocery store. It’s very easy to do and doesn’t take much time, so add this to your weekly rotation whenever you want a cheesy appetizer or a high-calorie snack.

The Secret to Great pull apart cheese and garlic bread

The only tricky element here is your knife work. You need to score the bread which means you must make a grid in the loaf by cutting into it with your knife. You can’t slice all the way through, but your cuts can’t be too shallow either. It isn’t complicated or difficult. You just have to be careful. If you like to be methodical about your garlic spread application, try this: Slice one way and then spread in the garlic in one smear across each cut. Then slice the other direction and apply the rest. This way you will have less to cover after the squares are made.

Cheese For Garlic Bread

Use any cheese you like, but think about how you like your grilled cheese. Shredded cheese that comes in larger weightier slivers is better for getting in the cracks. Otherwise, you will need to poke the cheese in. Slices of cheese wedged between gaps in the bread are also an easy way to get coverage more quickly. This is such a good pull apart bread with cheese!
