Cheesy Pull Apart Bread – It’s basically a cheesy garlic bread, but so much more fun AND delicious! Cheese, garlic and bread  – in pull apart bread form. You can’t go wrong. Guaranteed to be the most popular thing at any gathering you take it to!

If you haven’t tried this Cheesy Pull Apart Bread before, let me warn you now: garlic bread will never be the same again. It’s like a pull apart bread, but tastes like garlic bread plus you have the mozzarella cheese which stretches wonderfully as you pull bits off. Everybody goes so nuts over the cheese bits that you pull out, but my favorite part is the base of the bread. All the butter and cheese drips to the bottom and it bakes so nice and crispy.

Pale green speckles of green onion and parsley brighten molten rivers of garlicky cheddar and mozzarella cheese that’s been melted over a loaf of bread in this easy pull-apart cheese bread recipe. Cheesy pull apart bread like this makes a killer appetizer for just about any party—the shape of the loaf makes it feel extra perfect for football season—and it also doubles as a jazzed up side dish for simple suppers.
