  • If you’ve never tried cheesy pull-apart garlic bread, I’m about to blow your mind…and maybe your daily calorie intake. Whether you serve this easy garlic bread as a snack or side dish with a meal, it’s guaranteed to go fast. I was tempted to eat a whole loaf by myself. Serve it with a dipping sauce like marinara sauce or as a side with your favorite pasta dish. The way it’s pre-cut allows all of the delicious flavors to sink into the bread and makes it easy to pull into bite sized pieces. Every member of the family is sure to love it!


    My favorite foods are the ones that limit my preparation work, so I count this garlic bread as a WIN. Simply cut, pour and wrap to seal the Italian seasonings, butter, garlic and cheese inside of the loaf while it bakes. I went for Italian flavors. Although you can customize the types of spices and cheese you use for this easy recipe, I loved how it tasted with Italian seasoning and mozzarella. It was delicious dipped in marinara sauce. Can you imagine adding slices of pepperoni between the bread slices?! That would be take it to the next level There are so many ways to customize this recipe, and I can’t imagine a wrong way to do it.

    Serve the cheesy pull-apart bread hot from the oven while the cheesy is still freshly melted. Simply grab a square and pull for a tasty snack, appetizer or side dish!

    Prep Time:
    Cook time:
    Servings: 4-6


    • 1 large loaf French bread (or sourdough)
    • 5 Tbsp butter
    • 1 1/2 Tbsp garlic, minced
    • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
    • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
    • Salt to taste, optional if using unsalted butter
    • Shredded cheese of choice (recipe features mozzarella)


    Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Diagonally slice the French loaf but DO NOT cut all the way through. Cut close to the bottom crust. Repeat with opposite angle to make squares in the bread. 

    Step 2: In a small dish, microwave the butter until melted. Then stir in garlic and seasonings.

    Step 3: Use a spoon to coat each section of the bread with the garlic butter mixture. Lightly spread the cut areas to pour in butter.

    Step 4: Spread the cut section apart enough to insert shredded cheese between the bread squares. Add more or less cheese based on your taste preferences (about 1 cup featured in the recipe). 

    Step 5: Move the loaf on a large piece of foil and wrap the loaf entirely in the foil. Place the pull-apart bread on a baking sheet and bake 10 minutes. Then unwrap foil and bake an additional 10 minutes until bread is golden and cheese is melted. 

    Serve warm with dipping sauces!
