Happy Saturday!! That was a WEEK you guys. Non-stop busy and I attempted to restart my exercise plan. Obviously a poor choice because I was sick for 3 days. I over did it on a high intensity work out. Legit over exertion and it was awful. Constant headache, dizziness, upset stomach, the whole nine yards. Finally feeling better and I’m SO looking forward to a relaxing weekend, probably one full of comfort food because obviously. Over do it on a work out = I should probably make Cheesy Garlic Herb Pull Apart Bread to feel better right?
Right 😁. About that Cheesy Garlic Herb Pull Apart Bread…20 minutes to ooey, gooey, cheesy, goodness and there’s only 6 ingredients! Simple right?? Get your favorite crusty loaf of herbed bread (I chose rosemary olive oil) from the bakery, mozzarella, parmesan, butter, garlic, and parsley. That’s it! And doesn’t it look AWESOME? Tell me you don’t wanna grab on of those pull apart pieces right now.
All. The. Cheese.
Dan personally loved how you don’t have to slice this business after the fact. No messy toppings! All the buttery, cheesy, deliciousness gets stuffed and soaked up into the bread. And then you just rip off a piece and YAS cheese!
Also, remember that last minute happy hour you hosted and you couldn’t think of ANYTHING besides that super expensive wedge of brie and all the fixings? Cheesy Garlic Herb Pull Apart Bread. 20 minutes, fun, tasty, and easier on the wallet!
So, can you come up with a reason why you shouldn’t try some of this garlicky, buttery, cheesy, bread awesomeness? No? Didn’t think so 😎.
- 1 loaf rosemary olive oil bread
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 8 ounces mozzarella, cut into sticks
- 1 cup fresh grated parmesan
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, roughly minced
- Preheat oven to 375˚F.
- Heat butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat until melted. Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked and fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes. Be careful not to burn it! Remove from heat and set aside.
- Cut bread loaf in a diagonal criss cross fashion, making 1 to 1½ inch diagional cuts across the bread, being careful to cut deep but not to all the way through.
- Brush top of bread with garlic butter mixture and make sure to drizzle some into the cuts. Stuff the cuts with the mozzarella and half of the parmesan.
- Top with the rest of the parmesan and half of the parsley.
- Using two pieces of foil, cover the loaf: One piece for the bottom half and one piece for the top half.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Remove top piece of foil, and cook another 5-10 minutes, until golden and cheese has melted.
- Top with remaining parsley and serve immediately.
