A Night of Carbs

IMG_1365.JPGA now, go-to appetizer and my first take on the Cheesy Pull-APart Bread was a success! I saw the recipe while scrolling one day on Facebook and decided “hey why not have a night of carbs?”

I paired the appetizer with Mac ‘n Cheese and Chicken Tenders to bring back childhood memories of when I used to eat chicken tenders almost everyday. Truly, a night full of carbohydrates, but there were many smiles after I served the the bread to hungry college students who were eager for a free meal!

I tweaked the recipe from Tip Hero just a little bit and you can watch the video here. Here is my take on Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread

Ingredients:

-1 round or oval sourdough loaf

-4 oz of mozzarella slices

-3 oz of softened unsalted butter

-1 tsp kosher salt

-6 green onions

-1/2 cup of bacon bits (optional)

To assemble:

-Preheat oven to 350° F

-Place loaf of bread on a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper.

-Cut loaf  with diagonal slits or horizontally, just 3/4 of the way to the bottom of the bread (not all the way through!)

-Turn the loaf to cut in the other diagonal direction or vertical direction.

-Cut the slices of cheese into four strips and put them in between the pieces of bread previously cut.

-In a separate small bowl, mix the softened butter, garlic cloves, salt, and chopped green onions, and mix in the option bacon!

-Pour the mixture all over the sliced bread with cheese in between to let the bread soak up the paste.

-Carefully cover the prepared loaf with foil and bake for 20 minutes in the oven.

-After 20 minutes, remove the foil, increase the temperature to 400° F and bake the loaf for five minutes (keeping an eye on the loaf).

-When the cheese is completely melted and the bread is just browned, the bread is ready!

-Enjoy the beautiful cheesy pull!
