Turn your favorite GARLIC BREAD into CHEESE BREAD and even into PIZZA! WHOA, what a fantastic way to eat a loaf of bread! We’re pretty sure that this garlic bread recipe will become a fun and memorable “YUM” for your family. It’s great as a serious garlic bread for pasta dinner, a cheesy snack for game day and a fast lunch or dinner pizza treat! We found this incredible cheesy bread from Nagi at RecipeTin Eats and we knew that it would be a hit! We agree with Nagi, in that you have lots of options for flavors with this recipe by adding ranch dressing or even cilli. You can also substitute the type of bread, just pick a dense bread like sourdough so it’s easy to tear those yummy pieces of bread from the loaf!
Cheese and Garlic Crack Bread
(Pull Apart Bread)
- 1 crusty loaf, preferably sourdough or Vienna
- ¾ cup shredded Mozzarella cheese (or other melting cheese)
- 100g/3.5oz unsalted butter, softened
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ¾ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
- Preheat oven 350 degrees.
- Combine butter, garlic, salt and parsley into bowl and melt in microwave.
- Cut the loaf of bread on a diagonal, into 1 inch diamond shapes. Do NOT cut all the way through the bread as you’ll be pulling apart the sliced diamonds when it’s ready to eat! Fun.
- Drizzle your garlic butter mixture and cheese into each crack. Use your fingers or a knife to separate the little diamond wedges so that you get the garlic butter, cheese and anything else (pepperoni…if you’re making the pizza version) all the way down into the cracks.
- Wrap with foil and bake for 15 minutes for the cheese to mostly melt, then unwrap and continue in oven for 5 minutes for a golden and crispy crust. YUM, YUM!
Wow! What a great celebration of garlic bread. Thanks, Nagi! This definitely would disappear fast. It may be a good idea to make two at a time, especially for a party event. We bet that everyone who tries this recipe will be hanging around the table to see who gets maybe the “best part”…the bottom crust that soaked up all the garlic butter and melty cheese! YUM!
