Pull Apart Cheesy Bread

You are just a sprinkle of cheese away from the best bread that you will ever eat! Don't you feel better knowing that? I sure do!

For having such simple ingredients and steps this normal loaf of bread is about to be packed with flavor. I made this as a Thanksgiving appetizer and with Christmas around the corner I might just do that again. However, this would also be the perfect side for a spaghetti dinner, soup night, or even a game day treat. Heck why do we even need a reason, it's comfort food!

Gather the troops and let's get going!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30-40 minutes

Yields: 8-10 servings


  • 1 lb. round sourdough bread loaf

  • 1 8-oz. jar prepared pesto or make my fresh pesto ahead of time here

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 fresh sprigs rosemary, chopped

  • 1 tbsp garlic powder

  • Nonstick cooking spray


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cut using a bread knife into 1 inch slices, then turn your loaf 45 degrees and cut again into 1 inch slices. After you are finished you should have diamond shaped pieces and a loaf of bread that looks like it is blooming!

Spread 8 ounces of store bought or fresh pesto in between the bread slices. Be generous, no one has ever been mad over there being too much pesto.

Sprinkle in 2 cups mozzarella cheese, 2 chopped sprigs of rosemary, and 1 tbsp garlic powder. Try to fill every slice with all the ingredients so that each piece will have cheese on it.

Place your loaf on a baking sheet and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes then remove the loaf from the oven, take off the foil, and bake for about 10 minutes longer or until the cheese is bubbling.

"Bless us, O Lord, and these, Thy gifts, which we are about to receive from Thy bounty.Through Christ, our Lord.
