I’m going to come clean.
I can’t stop with the cheesy recipes. Not even going to try as I know I’ll fail miserably. Include bread with cheese, and those become one of the few things that I don’t ever want to give up. Next to chocolate and wine of course. #keepingitreal
I was looking for an easy, deliverable, all-in-one-package, pull apart bread that didn't cost me a lot of time to prepare. Thankfully, I stumbled across this delicious recipe, and I now ask myself daily why I had never thought to make pull apart bread like this.
First things first, get your bread, and just go to town on it! Release your inner Edward Scissorhands, Freddy Krueger, Wolverine, whoever you idolize that cuts things with ease and channel that through your knife, into your bread. Be sure not to cut all the way through, you want to keep the bottom attached so that the bread holds its form for you...unless you're trying to make croutons. If so, this is probably the wrong recipe for you.
Gather up some of your ingredients, put them in a nice "working" fashion, snap a picture and post it online to tease some of your friends and make them jealous of your culinary skills. Jokes on them though because this is super easy to make (ha!).
Now like I touched on in our Scalloped Potatoes Recipe, I prefer to use Organic Pastures Shredded Raw Cheddar as my cheese of choice for not only its nutritional value, but because they don't use Cellulose Powder or Natamycin in their cheese. These two ingredients are additives to help preserve the longevity of the cheese, but knowing what they are (wood shavings and a chemical compound) makes me happy that they are not included in this cheese.
You'll also want to chop up some chives and mix that in with some warmed butter (again, I choose to use Organic Pastures Raw Butter simply for its nutritional value and of course its yummy yumminess). Whisk those two together, and drizzle over your cheesy bready goodness.
Once you've gotten the cheese acquainted with the bread, and they've gotten to know each other on a more personal level, you're going to want to throw them (gently) into the absurdly hot oven to warm things up. About 10 minutes should be fine. If not, just stare at it through the oven door until things look good.
And really...that's it. That is all you have to do. Cut up some bread, put a few things in it, heat it up, and you're in business. It's all ready for you to consume your little heart out.
Enjoy! I know I did!
