Can we talk about this real quick? This is so good you don't even KNOW. So you have to make this so then you can know. Okay? Thanks.
Those manly finger tips belong to my hubby, BTW.
Here are the best ingredients in the world:
Round Crusty Bread Loaf
Italian Blend Shredded Cheese
Butter (or use unsalted butter and 2 pinches of sea or kosher salt like me)
Dried Italian Seasoning
Can we just have a moment of silence through the next series of photos? Thanks.
It's still going!! Hot damn. Serve this for NYE, for your next football Sunday, or on Tuesday just because it's Tuesday. And enjoy because life is good. Every crunchy cheesy bite of it. Stay hungry!
Cheesy Pull Apart Bread Recipe
1 Round Crusty Bread Loaf
2 Cups Italian Blend Shredded Cheese
1-1/2 Sticks of Unsalted Butter
2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
1/2 Tsp Dried Italian Seasoning
1 Tbs Fresh Chives, chopped
Preheat oven to 400. Cut cross hatches in bread to make cube shaped slices, but leave bottom crust in tact. Melt butter over medium heat and add garlic and chives. Stir and cook another minute or two to infuse the garlic and chives. Drizzle butter mixture over bread as evenly as possible. Use your hands to rub the butter into the crevasses. Mix the dried Italian seasoning with the cheese and pack the cheese into all of the nooks and crannies. Wrap bread in foil but leave top uncovered for first 10-12 minutes of cooking until cheese is golden brown on top. Then, cover and finish cooking for another 20 minutes or so until outside of the bread is very crisp and cheese is melted through. This will go ridiculously fast so if you are serving more than 4 people, make two. ENJOY!
