I don’t think there is anything better then a loaf of fresh bread filled with melted gooey cheese and lots of bacon!  Am I right… or am I right????

This pull apart bread is so simple to make and is filled with so much flavor your family will be talking about it for weeks.  What I also love so much is that you can make numerous different versions of pull apart bread.  You can add whatever fancies you at the time and guaranteed it will be yummilicious.

Now for me I wanted to go with shredded sharp cheddar cheese, bacon and scallion.  I melted butter, chopped up some cloves of garlic and all of it got stuffed into my sourdough loaf which I cut up in a tic-tac-toe motion.

The only bad part for me, and I do have to admit… was the anticipation of waiting until it was ready because if you know me I am a bread fiend and the smell that was coming out of my oven was making my tummy GROWL!!!!! 🙂

I can’t wait to share with you all other versions of pull apart bread I got running through my mind…

BUT until then enjoy some yummy, do not count the calories you are eating, bacon cheddar pull apart bread… Hey it’s on me!!!! 😀

Bacon & Cheese Pull-Apart Bread

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 1 loaf

Could there be anything better than bacon and cheddar cheese all stuffed into a loaf of bread... I think not!

Ingredients

  • 1 round loaf of Sourdough Bread
  • ½ cup (1 stick) Butter (unsalted or salted is fine), melted
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch Scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
  • ½ cup Cooked Bacon, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in a small bowl and set aside to cool and chop garlic and scallions. then add them to the melted butter.
  3. Use a bread knife to cut the bread in a “tic-tac-toe” pattern without cutting through the bottom of the bread.
  4. Gently separate the bread with your fingers, then spoon the butter mixture in all of the seams, making sure it is evenly distributed among the whole loaf. Then stuff the bacon crumbles and cheese in all of the bread crevices.
  5. Lightly wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes. Then remove from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F.
  6. Open the foil and leave the foil open and return it to the oven. Bake until the cheese is completely melted, bubbling and starting to brown on top, about 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving, then jump right in and enjoy!
