Cheesy Pull Apart Bread
  • 1 round artisan or sourdough loaf, about 1¼ pounds
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup flat leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 8 ounces grated Fontina cheese or similar stringy cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut the bread in 1-inch parallel strips, being careful not to cut all the way through the loaf. Rotate the bread 90 degrees and cut in 1-inch strips perpendicularly to create a cross-hatch pattern.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the butter, garlic and parsley. Spread the butter mixture evenly into the bread using a spoon or pastry brush. Stuff the rows evenly with cheese.
  4. Wrap the loaf in parchment and then foil and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
