This was absolutely delicious, we did not make up this recipe, but man, I believe the original recipe we found called it "crack" bread or something. They had good reason to! Once you dive in, there is no turning back with this garlic-herb-cheesy-goodness! There is a reason these pull apart loaves are a bit Pinterest famous. I think I might prep a few and throw them in my freezer, they're perfect to pair with a hot bowl of soup, like our coconut carrot soup we posted last month!
- 1 crusty sourdough or artisan loaf
- 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, minced
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, minced
- 3/4 cup shredded Mozzarella chees
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Combine the melted butter, garlic, salt, parsley, rosemary, and thyme in a small bowl.
With a serrated bread knife, cut the bread on a diagonal into 1-inch diamonds, being careful not to slice all the way through. Use your fingers to pry open each crack and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of butter and a pinch of the shredded cheese.
Wrap the entire loaf in foil. To make ahead, place the foil wrapped bread in the fridge overnight or in the freezer for a month, thawing before baking. Place on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes, or until the cheese has mostly melted. Carefully remove the foil and continue to bake for another 5 minutes, or until crusty. Serve immediately.
