HOW TO MAKE PULL APART THREE CHEESE GARLIC BREAD

Start by cutting your loaf. Use a bread knife to make cuts every 2 inches across the bread, then turn bread 90 degrees and make similar cuts across the bread. Don’t cut all the way thru to the bottom, you want the bread loaf to hold together.

💡Great Idea – put two chopsticks or wooden spoon handles up against each side of the bread. They will act as a stop that won’t let your knife go all the way to the bottom.

Melt the butter with the garlic and chives. Spoon the melted butter into the cuts you made with your knife. Use your fingers to open up the cuts to the butter can seep down into the inside of the bread.

Brush any remaining butter mixture over the outside of the loaf.

Bake the loaf in the oven wrapped loosely in foil for 20 minutes. Open up the foil to expose the bread then stick under the broiler for a few minutes until the top of the bread is browned and the cheese is bubbly.

Serve hot with homemade marinara sauce or your favorite dipping sauce.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 loaf round sourdough bread
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup white cheddar cheese
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup marinara sauce for dipping, optional

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F . Line a baking sheet with foil, large enough that when you pull up the sides you can wrap the bread loaf in the foil.
  • Using a sharp bread knife, make deep, long slices thru the bread about 1-1/2 inches apart all across the bread, taking care not to cut thru to the bottom. Then make the same cuts going in the opposite direction. The cuts will look like a grid.
  • Place the butter, chives and garlic in a microwave safe dish. Microwave until the butter is just melted. Using a spoon, drizzle the butter mixture evenly over the bread and in between cuts.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cheeses together. Stuff the mixture into all of the bread cuts, leaving some cheese to poke out on the top.
  • Wrap the loaf in the foil on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and open the foil packet to expose the bread. Turn the oven broiler on high and broil until the top of the bread is light brown and the cheese is bubbling. Serve hot.

GRILLING INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Prep the bread loaf according to the recipe instructions.
  • Wrap the loaf in a double layer of foil. Cook over indirect heat (the side of the grill with no coals or gas burners turned off) for 15 – 20 minutes.
  • Unwrap the top of the foil to expose the bread and continue to cook over indirect heat for about 5 minutes until the bread is crispy on top and the cheese is fully melted. Serve hot.

NOTES

Set chopsticks or wooden spoon handles on each side of the bread to use as a cutting guide when slicing through the bread. It will keep the knife from going all of the way thru.
If you’re worried about the bread burning on the grill, sit the foil wrapped bread in a grill-safe pan or skillet (like cast-iron) to give an extra layer between the hot grill and the bottom of the bread.
