A fabulous party snack for the holidays. Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread will have your guests pinching and dipping all evening!
There are very few foods that have the comforting, almost sedative, effect of warm aromatic bread.
Throughout the year, we try to keep carbs on the down low, only splurging on this most beloved food group on the weekends.
However, now that the holidays are upon us, it’s time to give into our fluffy wheaty obsession with unabashed abandon.
And if cheese is involved, even better!
Today’s Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread is a marvelous recipe for holiday party snacking or as a side dish.
It’s a skillet mini roll recipe with butter, herbs, and creamy cheese stuffed in between the pieces, making it easy to pinch little bites off with your fingers!
Your guests will come back to these hot cheesy nibbles again and again. Guaranteed.
To make this addictive 6-Ingredient Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread recipe, start with thawed yeast roll dough balls. Cut the balls into quarters, then dunk them in garlic butter and lay them in a large skillet. (You could also start with homemade yeast roll dough!)
Allow the dough to quick-rise in a 200 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Then tuck Land O Lakes® White Deli American cheese squares down in between the bread sections. This not only coats the sides of each piece in cheesy goodness, it makes them easy to pull apart.
Land O Lakes® White Deli American is not just for sandwich making. It’s a great choice for this Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread, because it offers a classic mild cheese flavor and an ultra smooth and silky texture.
Plus it melts like a dream!
Sprinkle parmesan and herbs over the top, for a crispy top crust, and bake.
What you end up with is no less than a skillet full of pure edible joy!
Or serve it with dipping sauce and let your family pull it apart by hand.
Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart Bread
Start with thawed or fresh-made yeast roll dough balls. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Grease a large 14-15 inch cast iron skillet.
Melt the butter and stir in the garlic powder. Using kitchen shears, cut the dough balls into quarters and dunk the pieces in the melted butter. Then spread the pieces over the bottom of the skillet.
- Place the skillet in the oven to quick-rise for 15 minutes. Meanwhile cut each piece of Land O Lakes® White Deli American into 6 little rectangles.
- Take the skillet out of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Insert a butter knife in between the risen dough sections and tuck little pieces of cheese in as many places as you can.
- Drizzle any remaining butter over the top. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden. Serve as-is or with a side of marinara for dipping.
NOTE: This recipe can also be made in two smaller oven-safe skillets.
