Cheesy Pull Apart Garlic Bread Recipe

Cheesy Pull Apart Garlic Bread Recipe


  • 1 large round or oblong loaf of crusty bread
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 4 -5 cups shredded cheese - I used a combination of fontina smoked gouda, Swiss, and white sharp cheddar
  • 2 -3 tablespoons chives green onions, or parsley, chopped, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Melt butter with garlic over low heat for a 2 -3 minutes
  3. Without cutting all the way through the bottom, slice bread long-wise and cross-wise making 1/2 inch squares across the top of the bread
  4. Pour melted butter and garlic over bread, making sure that it goes all down in between the cut squares as well as over the top
  5. Stuff shredded cheese down into the sides of all the cut squares - you may have to really jam it in there, but it's totally worth the effort - the more the better!
  6. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until bread is golden and cheese is bubbly
  7. Garnish with chopped chives, green onions, and/or parsley if desired
