Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Bread from Scratch

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 F 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.
