Five Cheese Pull-Apart Bread

For an appetizer that is sure to please, make a five cheese pull-apart bread. It’s easy, delicious, and won’t last long.

Jump to Recipe

Cheese and bread are two of my favorite things. Along with chocolate, but I haven’t found a recipe that combines all three (yet). But this five cheese pull-apart bread is amazing and did not last long.

The first time I made this, we had family in town and it didn’t last more than an hour. Fun fact, that’s actually my sister’s hand in the final photo grabbing a piece. Usually, it would be my own hand, but she was in town and wanted to help! The entire loaf was gone so quickly and we were all looking for more.

You can use whatever cheese you want, but the ones we used worked really well together. We don’t typically cook with some of these “fancy” cheeses, but I needed them for another recipe and we had a lot of extra.

Step by Step

Preheat the oven to 350F. Prepare your ingredients. Make sure the mozzarella cheese is cut into cubes and the rest of the cheese is shredded.

Slice the top of the bread both horizontally and vertically without going all the way through. The pieces should be about 1-inch square.

Transfer the mozzarella-stuffed loaf to a baking sheet lined with foil. Combine shredded cheeses in a medium mixing bowl. Mix in the garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and parsley. Sprinkle the cheese mixture over the bread, gently pushing some down in between the slices.

Wrap the loaf loosely in foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Unwrap the foil from the bread and bake another 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted completely.

Leftovers

As I said, we didn’t have any leftovers when we made our five cheese pull-apart bread. But, the best way to save it would be to cover completely with foil and refrigerate. Then, when you are ready to eat, reheat in the oven covered in foil for just a few minutes to melt the cheese again.

  1. Yummy! This is absolutely delicious looking. I don’t like cheese but I want to try this recepie. I love how it doesn’t take long at all because the bread is already made and you are just melting more flavors into it. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. OMG this looks soooo yummy! I did something similar in the past with green onions and it was so delicious! I should do it again using your recipe 🙂
