This Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread only takes 10 minutes to prep and makes a tasty and filling appetizer for your next party!
If you’re looking for a deliciously cheesy warm appetizer, we have found it for you! With only 5 ingredients and a 10 minute prep time, it’s an easy appetizer that you will make again and again.
Whether you’re entertaining just a couple of friends or a neighborhood party, grab a loaf of fresh French bread and your favorite serrated knife.
Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread Ingredients:
- French bread
- shredded mozzarella cheese
Start with preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Gather your ingredients and let’s go!
Start cutting your bread in a zigzag pattern, but be careful NOT to cut all the way through.
I put my reusable chopsticks alongside the length of my bread, so they block my knife from cutting all the way through the loaf.
This is how your bread should look after you are finishing zigzag cutting the loaf of French bread.
Opening up the bread will make it easier to brush the loaf with the butter garlic mixture.
Melt your butter and mince your garlic. You can buy minced garlic in a jar, but using a garlic mincer to press your own fresh garlic is always better. Garlic tastes so much better when it has just been minced.
Mix the butter and garlic together well in a bowl. Now, use your pastry brush to brush the garlic butter between the cuts and over your bread. Make sure all parts are covered.
Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese between the cuts of the bread as well. Want a cheesier bread? Just use more mozzarella – and of course you can always use more garlic than called for as well!
Baking Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread
Isn’t this starting to look tasty? Now, cover the whole bread with aluminum foil and put in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
Then remove the foil and put back in the oven for another 8-10 minutes. Make sure the cheese is completely melted. Then remove from the oven.
Sprinkle the parsley over the bread as soon as you take out of the oven, then serve while warm. This appetizer also pairs nicely with these Cranberry Vodka Spritzers in warm weather.
